I'm a retired engineer and I know from where you come!

My favorite engineering "rub" comes in this quote; "There comes a time in the history of every project when it becomes necessary to shoot the engineers and begin production."

I was working in the auto industry when the Service Engineer's function was moved from a "fix-it" billet and into the product design process. The result has been a sea-change in the serviceability of today's cars.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Mr. CraneBrake,

No problem. I already got it fixed. Yep, while putting the Springfield Champion Operator (1911), back together, I placed the spring, with the opening side, facing the wrong way. After finally being able to take everything apart, I placed in the right way and it is very smooth.

Thanks

Can you explain how you were able to take it back apart? I did the same thing and I've been at it for 2 hours and haven't been able to remove the spring. Appreciate it thanks!!

It took two people to do this. I had to have one person pull the slide all the way back to lock it in. Then apply the break down tool. Getting the slide to pull back all the way was the challenge.

Keep me posted.

You could have gone around the back door with more ease and accomplished the same results, that is removing the slide completely from the frame by lining up the slides take down notch, removing the slide stop, separating the slide from the frame,(making sure things don't spring out) removing the guide rod and pulling the spring out.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
