  1. I actually moved here about a year ago and I've been meaning to check out SC Arms and I did recently to see if I could find any AR15 5.56 but with no luck. Anyway might have to take that offer at Recoil, ill update you once I get all the parts and some .45 acp ball and no I do not plan on using plastic shok buffs thank you for ur help.
  2. thanks for the reply! I have ordered a standard guide rod and plug as 10X have mentioned, the only thing that I might consider now is the barrel bushing...from all the videos I've seen so far on YouTube every single one of them can swing the bushing freely effortlessly so I think it might needs to be replaced... I am located in Middlesex county, central jersey.
  3. After watching some assembly video on YouTube I have done the exact thing u mentioned having the 2 "pointy" facing and cupping the barrel and still wouldn't budge but thank you for the input.
  4. I went on both brownells and midway and found midway's pricing way better than the first, parts ordered. In regards to the spring, I have 8,10,12,15,17 and 18 1/2. Would #15 be the closest spring to the 16lb standard choice to use when its time for me to take it for a test fire? Assuming I could acquire some 45 acp, I have some left over from my uncle but I have no idea what kind of loads they are since its missing the box.
  5. thanks for your help I believe you are 100% correct with the show-buff, shortly after the post I found a "Wilson spring kit" which it contain a couple of those plastic buff and when I attempt to slide onto the guide rod it immediately shattered... along with that the kit also contained a few springs from ranges from #8 to #18 1/2 are those interchangeable? And as far as the guide rod replacement goes I have found this on eBay https://www.ebay.com/c/8011390306?iid=254301840937 would that work? Thank you so much for your help. This pistol used to belongs to my uncle and I would love to get it to work again.
  6. I have inherited a Wilson colt 1911 mk iv series 80 recently and after I had taken apart the pistol to clean I have noticed there were pieces of plastic that was broken off I believe where it used to sits behind the spring of the guide rod. After I had finished cleaning the pistol I am currently stuck at getting the bushing/guide rod down the barrel because the bushing is hollowed out which I have no problem pushing down with a flat tip screw driver but the guide rod would not go down enough for me to swing the piece to lock it in place. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I need to replace the plastic piece that was broken off and also if someone could point me the right direction as to maybe replacing the full size guide rod to a shorter version? of guide rod (and where I could possibly order one?) maybe that will solve my problem. TIA Edited: I have attached pictures 78D80CA2-0E03-4E86-BD24-16999026A5AA.heic 26647C1F-C7ED-49C7-9947-4B5F90095029.heic
