BASIC RULES OF SAFE FIREARMS HANDLING

Safety must be the first and constant consideration of every person who handles firearms and ammunition. A person with a gun in his possession has an important responsibility. He must know how to use his firearm in a way which will ensure his own safety and that of others.

Firearms do not cause accidents! Firearms accidents are almost a/ways found to have been the result of carelessness, or ignorance on the basic rules of safe gun handling on the part of the users.

The following rules must be strictly observed by gun users at all times:

1. Always keep the gun holstered except when drawn for a definite purpose.

2. A/ways check the gun for live ammunition when picked-up, drawn from the holster, handed to or received from another person.

3. Never point the gun at anything you don't intend to shoot.

4. Never load and lock the gun unless you are ready to shoot. Do not even insert your finger in the trigger guard until you are ready to shoot.

5. Avoid dry-firing even with dummy cartridges, unless same is performed on a regular target range or at a known inanimate target.

6. When holding the gun that is ready to fire, be absolutely certain that it is not pointed at any pan of your body nor at any person within your immediate vicinity.

7. Beware of obstruction in the barrel. If, when firing, a weak or peculiar report is heard, cease firing, unload the pistol and inspect the barrel for an obstruction. A struck bullet or any other object on the barrel should be removed immediately. Not doing so may result in a bulged or burst barrel which may cause injury to the shooter or bystanders.

8. When a misfire is experienced, keep the gun pointed at the target for at least ten seconds before inspecting it; a delayed firing may occur.

9. As much as possible, wear shooting glasses and hearing protectors when firing.

10. Do not shoot at a hard surface or water for the bullet can glance off and travel in unpredictable directions with considerable velocity.

/ /. Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and/or taking prohibited drugs when handling the firearm.

MODEL MS

Charles Daly now introduces the new downsized Model MS 1911-A1 pistol in caliber 45 ACP. It is basically a shortened version of the original full-size (Model FS) Charles Daly M1911-A1.

The overall length of the MS pistol is one inch shorter but with the same grip length giving the same firepower and good handling characteristics as with the full size parent. Most features present in the standard version are available in this new model including the ambidextrous safety, skeletonized trigger and combat hammer, beavertail grip safety, squared slide serration lowered ejection port and beveled magazine well. Added features include the extended ejector, use of a reverse recoil spring plug and a full length recoil spring guide which acts as a stabilizer. Dovetail front and rear sights are standard on all Charles Daly 1911- A1 pistols.

The MS uses the same internal parts of the full size model except for a shortened barrel bushing and standard slide stop.

Disassembly of the MS pistol is done by first removing the slide stop and separating the slide-barrel-recoil spring assembly from the frame. The recoil spring guide is then pushed forward compressing the recoil spring until the small hole on it comes out of the reverse recoil spring plug. A paper clip with 5/16 inch of its end bent at 90 degree angle (Fig.1 on back page) is inserted into the hole trapping +he spring assembly (Fig.2). At this point, the recoil spring guide assembly can now be pulled out rearward of the spring tunnel (Fig.3). No further disassembly is recommended for routine cleaning and maintenance purposes.
