    Takedown procedure of a Wilson Combat 1911 done by one of their gunsmiths on youtube and he did it way different that how I do it. I first make sure the gun is clear, then pull the hammer back and engage the safety. I then slide open the bushing and remove the plug. I do this first to take tension off the recoil spring before I remove the slidestop. This guy removes the slidestop with the recoil spring under tension. Seems like a harder way to do it to me, but Im sure no Wilson Combat gunsmith. How do you guys do it? (Or at least the ones who clean your guns:tongueout:)

    on tight guns, i remove the slide, recoil spring/guide rod, move the barrel out of battery, remove the bushing.

    on guns where i can get the bushing off with my fingers, i move the barrel back out of battery, remove the bushing, remove the plug & spring, then remove the slide.

    here's a pic of how i do it when i can remove the bushing by hand.

    Thats what I do. On my TRP, I unbolt the guiderod and I can actually get the bushing off with my hands.

    the only guns that i NEED a bushing wrench on are the 3 Custom Shop guns. when i first got my TGO-1, i didn't think that i would be able to get the bushing off even with a wrench.

    I take the slide stop out then remove the guide rod assembly, no matter whether its GI or FLGR like on my STI

    I dissemble just like he did, but when I go back together the plug is the last thing I put in:supergrin:

    I guess Ive never had the pleasure of NEEDING a bushing wrench on a 1911 yet. Hopefully some day. That is one thing nice about the mil-spec is that it is a little loose (and quite worn in) so it field strips really easy and quick.

    I mean really. Bac already goes for those awful front serrations. Makes a rail look traditional! :tongueout:

    Bac, the last time I visited, I think you mentioned you use this on your Les Baer.

    Bac uses a wrench too. See previous post.

    If Bac gets a railed 1911, he will have lost friends and respect.

    He's not a fan of front serrations, but they don't seem to bother him as much as it does others.

    As for a tac rail, I sent my P226 to a smith and paid $300 to have it removed.

    I understand that everyone has an opinion on rails and front serrations. No problems with rails here, but it has to look good. I actually have a slight problem with front serrations, but its a personal hang up.

    As for front serrations, I like them but I definatley wouldn't mind not having them. If I had a 1911 STRICKLY for home defense I would have a railed TRP but I really don't like the looks of a rail on a 1911.
