I'm a little buzzed right now, can't get the fuckin slide stop to pop back in.

So do I set the recoil spring and plug first and then the slide stop, or the slide stop first then the plug and bushing?

I had the exact same problem when I first reassbled my 1911. Give me a sec to see if I can find the internet site I went to.

You can actualy do it either way, one is much harder than the other. Sober up and try it again.

Here we go, www.m1911.org/stripin1.htm

Almost at the very bottom of the page is what you're looking for.

Bastard!

Actually having the plug and spring in almost gets me there and seems the most doable, but I can't get the damn stop to go that final click in



I have the Kuhnhausasen manual here infrontof me, but the things like War and Peace... no quick re-assembly instructions that I can see in my altered state

Earlieer I was having the same problem with my Defender, but when I was cussing and swearing it actually fell in when I wasn't looking

Of course the defendert has a double spring guid rod with no plug so it's adifferen equation.

Damnit!!!

Okay, this'll take you through the steps.

Sober up, then try again.

Thats how I do it

Rip

ETA: I think you need to get that flippy floppy thing on the barrel to line in the slidestop hole, then it will let the slidestop thing to go in the last click

Seriously... do you want a gun in the house that was assembled by a drunk person?

Then again if the first shot gets that bad guy, you don't have to worry that when the slide nearly came off the receiver it got stopped just in time. but may never feed again.

You look in the hole in the side so the little dangly thingy hole lines up with the hole in the handle piece and push the slide stop in most of the way then you push that longy top piece back a skosh more while pushing on the slide stop from the big end and as the long flata piece moves back the slide stoppy thing will go in all the way.

Then you get to mess with the twangy thing dangling out the front.

+1

when you sober up...

the trick to getting the final "click" in is to work the slide very slightly back and forth while inserting the link pin. especially if you have a blued model, what looks right is about a micrometer from actually being right. doing it "by feel" often works better than looking at it.

No you guys are right.

My hands are all torn up tryin to put this thing together.

I'm ready to shove it up the nieghbors ass at this point.

I'll approach it tommorow in a sobor state.

Fuck!

I love this pistola.

It's a stainless, 1991A1, 5 inch, Lew Horton Special with Videcki trigger,Bomar sights and double diamond grips.... It is unblievably accurate.

Just pissin me off at the moment.

Great centuries old, still contemporary pistola. but a bit of a pain in the ass to put back together three sheets to the wind.

Damn you John Moses Browning anyway

I see a slide stop scratch from the trigger up to the plunger hole, so you must have done it correctly.


Yeah I alredy noticed there's a bigass scratch from the triger to the side so I defiled it like every other knucklehead even though I only got about 150 rounds through this badboy.

"Idiot mark" from the first reassembly. It's a right of passage.

My Springer has a little scratch from my first time too..hate that it messed up the stainless but I don't feel so bad now

Thanks for the help guys, and thank you for the pictures Subnet.

I am such an idiot!

You know why I was having so much trouble?

Cause I was attempting to insert the slidestop hook-thingy into the actual slidestop notch in the slide ... of course it will not fit in that cut out becasue it is too large ... and I could plainley see that today.

Actually a very easy design to put back together when you're not stuck on stupid.

I've gotta question for you all.

This was the first time I've assembled this pistol with the plug going in last(was very easy), but I was wondering what is the "proper" way to assemble a 1911?

Is it with the slide-stop pin being inserted last, or with the spring plug being installed last?

How did they train our troopers to do it?

To start with they were sober. I taught myself to do it using the old FM and IIRC it's leaving the spring out until the end.

See no scratches

Hey, where is the rest of that pictorial? Do you have the complete reassemble, or just from magazine catch?

Thanks

Wouldn't be the first time an unloaded gun killed someone or just "accidently" went off.

DUH!!

Alchohol and guns(loaded or not!) do not mix, ever.

Sorry if you think I am being a prick about this, but I can't stress enough, never ever do that agian.
