That is why I disassemble the first time in a large plastic bag. The springs don't travel as far.

I wish I had thought of that. The first I did a complete strip on a 1911 it took me 45 minutes due to spring fling. Lol

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

I routinely disassemble my Kimbers and I've had my share of spring fling. But the worst was not to long ago while I was assembling a mainspring housing. I was in my computer/black light/arts and crafts/gun room and I was listening to music through my headphones, not ear buds but headphones so I could not hear outside sounds. I had the housing clamped in a small potable vice and I was using a nail set to depress the plunger when suddenly something slipped and off shot the plunger! Because I could not hear where the plunger hit I had no idea where it had gone! I had a general direction but in this crowded room that's not much help. I ended up making a plunger from an odd flat hear screw, some aluminum tubing and some heat shrink tubing! Laugh all you want, it worked! Fortunately for me someone on eBay had a Wilson Combat plunger for sale (a leftover from a pin kit) for $5.00 and I grabbed it up! Now things are almost back to normal with my HD II.

i lost the plunger spring similar to that for my colt commander. it went somewhere in the basement. it was in pieces till day before yesterday when i caught the little siamese trotting by saucy as you please with it hanging half out her mouth... she had been using it as a play toy and moving it around the house.

Have any of you guys seen my recoil spring? The plug should still be on it.

Default Disassemble...Dead! No Disassemble!

I routinely disassemble my 2 Kimbers as I often work on them trying, generally, to get rid of the "trigger creep". I can almost do it in my sleep! But when I had that "machinist" do some "work" for me he filled my guns full of grease! I mean he almost packed them ready for long term storage! When I encountered problems with them and took them back and mentioned the grease he informed me matter of factually that I was not to disassemble my (own) guns beyond field stripping to clean them! WHAT!? This was just one warning sign that should have told me that I was making a big mistake. One day I'll learn.

1911's need a little trigger creep to reset the trigger correctly.
