Yup, that's true.

I understand that - in fact, I often feel the same way. However, there comes a point when asking for advice from someone with much more experience than you is just a better use of time; and I would consider the installation of a kit for the first time, with little-to-no experience has way overstepped that line.

Just go and see ILLusion. To me, he seems like the kind of guy that would be more than happy to let you sit and watch - he isn't at all about making himself a profit and keeping customers as customers. I find that he's very good at giving really good advice, even when he himself could have attempted to sell a similar part to me; I have a feeling that if you took your GBB to him and had him fix it, he'd be even more receptive to giving you proper instruction.

I don't think there's ever a line to overstep unless you're in debt and have no money to replace anything you might break in the process of learning. I saved up enough to ensure the replacement of most things if I ever broke them. In other words I essentially insured myself from any mistakes I made that would result in damages. The experience I've gotten from doing this is priceless, albeit far from painless.

Yes. That I will do. It seems like I've done all I can and more and still cannot rectify the problem.

True that, from what I can imagine. Man, I would have gone nuts if I were in your position - I admire that you managed to stay cool.

Any gun docs out there familiar with 1911s other than ILLusion? He's a busy person and our schedules may not line up...

I just tested it out and the answer to your question is, yes, it does cycle, but its somewhat weaker than than normal (in that weather)... so don't expect to be getting long range kills with your pistol!
