took maybe 5 minutes for me to go through the procedure with winds. its realllly easy.
all you have to do is clear it. pull the trigger so hammer goes forward. pull out mainspring housing the pull out the bolt.
seperate upper from lower.
clean the gun.
to reassemble fit the upper to the lower. the hammer has to be cocked so there is room for the bolt to go in.
to cock the hammer point gun up pull trigger and hold it. shake it a bit and hammer will cock. slide bolt in.
to get the mainspring in you have to have the hammer in the fired position. pull trigger and hold it and at the same time point the gun down so the hammer falls into the fired position. now the mainspring can be inserted.
its really that simple. easier than putting together a 1911
