If you read my first thread you know that I am new to 1911's. So my question is: How do I field strip this thing? Don't hurt me just yet! I have read some guides but can not get this thing apart. I pull the slide back and slide it foward while trying to "press the recoil spring plug inwards until the barrel bushing is free to be twisted clockwise" but nothing happens. The plug does not move. This is a used weapon so could I have a full length guide rod? If so how do I remove it. Thanks in advance for your help. Here are some pics if that helps.
