HELP ! M1911 Field Strip help: recoil spring won't release

Postby waylon66 » Sat Dec 31, 2011 11:42 pm

Hope one of you folks can help me; i just purchased a SA Range Officer (it doesn't have a FLGR) and when i started to field strip it, the spring plug will not release after i turn the barrel bushing clockwise to "free" it (never had thjs problem with my other 1911's). The manual says to push the slide back 1/2 inch, but this doesn't help. Any suggestions? Thanks.
