Tight tollerances are wonderfull.

Sometimes the CC trick doesn't work because the card is too thick. You may want to try a little masking tape and be real careful with it.

To avoid an idiot scratch here’s another method you might try...

Remove the thumb safety to relieve the tension from the slide stop detent. Then replace the slide stop... it will take no effort at all with the tension removed. Now take a Q-Tip (with the cotton removed), toothpick, or jeweler’s screwdriver to depress the thumb safety detent and ease the thumb safety back in place.


noob statement, how do you remove the thumb safety

  • Now take your Q-Tip (with cotton removed), toothpick, etc. and push the detent into the plunger tube while pushing the thumb safety back into place and flush onto the frame.




  • Aj,
    You rock bud, that worked out well. The only step I got nervous delayed on was the one above but once you learn how to angle the q-tip, you are good to go. Thanks again bud for not allowing me to scrape the hell out of my brand new 1911 :)

    Lemme’ give this a whirl...


    • Cock the hammer back.


    • While pushing on the thumb safety pin from the right side of the frame, slowly wiggle the thumb safety between the “on safe” and “off safe” position. There is a relief cut in the frame that allows the thumb safety to be removed or installed while between the “on safe” and “off safe” position.


    • The thumb safety should now push out towards the left side of the gun... be mindful of the plunger tube spring/detents as they may want to “shoot” out of the plunger tube.


    • Now install the slide stop.


    • To install the thumb safety, first take a look at the cut out in the frame for the thumb safety lug. You’ll notice that, as I mentioned above, it is an ovular hole with the relief cut on the left side. That relief cut is where the engagement lug on the thumb safety goes in and that should give you a visual of what position the thumb safety has to be at in order to remove or install the part.


    • With the hammer still cocked and the plunger tube detent assembly in place, insert the thumb safety pin into the frame. It should stop on the detent protruding out of the plunger tube.


    • Now take your Q-Tip (with cotton removed), toothpick, etc. and push the detent into the plunger tube while pushing the thumb safety back into place and flush onto the frame.




    Pfft!

    Sorry - please adopt me instead of Lumpy. I'll bring my own ammo!

    I have a better deal......You don't even have to adopt me. I can bring my own ammo and I'll reload yours for you to boot. I just wannt check out AJ's merchandise!

    Glad to hear you wiggled your release in place, chromeluv. If that doesn't want to just make you take it apart 900 times a day, what does?
