I had a problem with the thumb safety on my Springfield Milspec right after I bought it. It got stuck during reassemble. Since this was my first 1911 (single action revolvers and 1 Glock I bought in a moment of weakness before that), I assumed it was me. I worked with it until I got it out and slowed down on the reassembly. Got it working and have not had a problem since.

partner, Dan is hardly a troll. he has probably forgotten more about firearms than you have learned yet. he was trying to help you and you want to flame on him.

Dan happens to be quite knowledgeable on most firearms and 1911's in particular. beings you seem to be some know-it-all, have fun with your pistol douchebag!

I don't want to "flame" him (whatever that means).

Namecalling? Really? Lucky for you there's no maturity test for firearms ownership.
partner, Dan can build a 1911 from scratch. you can't even seem to disassemble one and then put it back together properly. i think if i needed help with working on firearm, i wonder which one of the two of you i would defer to? here's a hint: it ain't you!

enjoy your non-fuctioning 1911!

Pictures would help.

Step by step, what was removed? Pictures speak thousands of words.

I bet that the chances are the mainspring housing and the like may have been reinstalled improperly.
