    Can I please get some advice on where I could obtain drawings on how to field strip a Colt .45 ACP? Thank you, gentlemen.

    Google 1911 disassembly instructions.

    You should get around 1,000,000 hits.

    DO NOT point the recoil spring plug at your face. :D

    You may get an idiot mark under your slide-stop. Don't worry about it, it shows you actually USE your gun. :)

    The real idiot mark would be on your face if you don't screw the recoil spring plug onto the spring to keep the plug from flying.

    Assuming that the plug has the punch-cut so it can be threaded onto the spring...which most lack these days. I think that Colt has recently returned to making that cut on the 5-inch guns.

    I replaced the FLGRs in my guns with plugs, I think they're Ed Brown, they don't have one.

    Yes they have, my 2011-manufactured Rail Gun came from the factory with the standard GI guide rod (all the Rail Guns do, not sure about other models as my 2009 LW Commander has a FLGR) and the recoil spring plug does indeed have the notch to hold it on the recoil spring. It's pretty much a Godsend.

    And while you're busy not pointing the recoil spring plug at your face, don't point it at the lights over your bench either. . . .
