Thread: Help please!

    Angry Help please!

    I just added a new gun to my collection. A Springfield 1911A1 "Loaded". I cant seem to field strip my pistol. I got the slide off but i cant seem to do anything with my guide rod so i cant move my barrel bushing to extract my barrel and guide rod. Oh its a full length guide rod.

    Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked:

    'What do you feel when you shoot a Terrorist?'

    The Marine shrugged and replied,


    'A slight recoil.'

    This may sound nutty, but there are a couple of really good videos on YouTube that show the disassembly and reassembly of the 1911. A big help to a new owner (like me).
