I need it to keep enough pressure on the spring to rotate the bushing. I have to place one at the top, then press it down with a small screw driver. By fonz in forum General. Now the barrel is free to go. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Is this a good guide for field strip?
A tool is typical need to trap the recoil spring. The recoil spring and the plunger can now be removed from the front of the slide. Some of those design changes involve the recoil assembly.

Makes takedown much more simple than removing the slide as an intact unit my training was in the 25 second rule. Last edited by joker; November 4th, at The slightly manlier method is to press the recoil spring plug in with one hand and rotate the bushing with the other. My Kimber Ultra Carry 2 is a little more involved and requires a paper clip or the infamous Kimber tool. Remove the slide stop and set it aside. Other than that I never had any problems with taking it apart.
Release the slide and control it moving forward. Time to clean and oil. Although it was designed over years ago, the Colt Government is still an object of worship among its fans and in spite of its age, is still a very usable weapon for home and personal self-defense as well as unrivalled in precision shooting and some shooting sports specialties. Place barrel up and through the slide, making sure the back of it is correctly in a pin located on the back of the slide. I agree with the others about the full length guide rods - I've got no use for them whatsoever and think they add unnecessary complications to the design.
