Having real triouble removing firing pin stop from my Para P14. HAve no trouble depressing safety plunger and setting firing pin back. The firing pin stop is another matter. How much preasure should one have to apply to slide the darn thing down. No problem with my Norinco in this regard. On the off chance there is gunk around the stop will some form of degreaser work or will it just make it worse? Want to install new wolf spring.

Tight is good.

Many 1911 owners pay to have special tight stops fitted to their guns. A too-loose stop can possibly drop down during the firing cycle and cause a jam.

You just got a custom part for "free".

So, use a small brass drift to gently nudge the stop down and off.
Clean everything up, re-lube, replace your spring, and reassemble.

Thanks. I will go with your suggeston. I know one thing for sure. The stop in my gun is never going to drop down on it's own.
