    Pictorial Guide to Field Stripping the PT1911



    With the pistol unloaded, the magazine removed and the hammer down, depress the recoil spring plug, and turn the barrel bushing Clockwise, toward the right side of the pistol until the recoil spring plug and recoil are free. Be careful, the recoil spring and plug are under tension and can fly out with substantial force.




    Ease out recoil spring and plug. Cock the hammer and push the slide rearward until the semi-
    circular tab on the back of the slide stop aligns with the semi-circular disassembly notch in the bottom of the slide. Push inward on the end of the slide stop shaft on the right side of the pistol and remove the slide stop from the left side.



    Slide the slide assembly forward off the frame.



    Turn the barrel bushing counter-clockwise until the lug aligns with the opening and remove the bushing from the front of the slide.




    Remove the full length recoil spring guide from the bottom of the slide by rotating it away from the barrel and withdrawing it towards the rear of the slide. The barrel link can get in the way of removal. To stop this, hold the slide inverted and rotate the link to its forward position. The guide rod can now be lifted over the link.





    Tip the barrel link forward to clear the recoil spring tunnel. Then pull the barrel forward clear of the slide.





    The pistol is now disassembled for cleaning purposes (field stripped).

    I believe this was created in response to my question in the other thread. I appreciate the effort and think it's a good addition for those of us who are new to 1911's. Thanks much.

    Is the bushing able to be rotated without a bushing wrench? I assume it would be on pistols that have been fired a bit but what about new ones?

    Yeah it's doable. Just easier on the fingers to use the wrench.

    OK, I've disassembled the gun per your very nice instructions.

    Now, how do I reassemble it? I believe I have it altogether except for the life of me can't figure out how to get the slide stop back in.

    Could use some help here.

    Awesome! I was looking at mine (after just buying it a couple of hours ago) and was like "WTH? looks like a bear to clean"

    I'm kinda spoiled after using the M9 and 92FS, LOL
