    Colt 80 Series disassembly

    OK to date I have feild stripped my 80 Series pistol a number of times. this weekend I hope to find the time to completely disassemble it. Any words of wisdom? It is a Defender which I typically cheat with by using a recoil spring compressor to make reassembly without the idiot scratch easier. Today is as much about learning more about and understanding better its parts and function as it is cleaning. After a more than a year of working with and cleaning I finally have nerve enough to take th enext step so thoughts, guidance and cautions are greatly appreciated. flanman

    Sir,
    I am new to this forum so don't know if this is permissible, but a site that has helped me in the past with assembly/disassembly questions is:

    take a look at splode.com, they have a 1911 assembly video that's very well done. it's a 70 series 1911 shown, so it doesn't show the firing pin lock or the two cams that operate it, but a picture is worth a 1000 words, and these pics are animated computer gen images.
    btw, the 80 series firing pin lock is a pita to re-assemble. recommend you don't go that far in your disassembly unless you are a very patient, unflappable type.
    it drove me nuts for a long time!
