Remington 1911 Detail Dis-assembly




I have a new Remington R1 and I am very happy with it and its performance. I have done a field strip and am quite comfortable with that. However, I am a little worried about doing a detail dis-assembly since it is a series 80. I have watched several 1911 videos about detail dis-assembly and reassembly but they have all been about series 70 1911s. Does anyone know of any good series 80 videos to check out?

it's just like the 70 series with a few exceptions.

Frame. you just have to keep track ot the 80 Series parts. there's only 2.

the lower part is held to the right side of the sear pin. also note the direction to install it.
the upper part is held in just above the lower part and is held in with the hammer pin.



Slide. disassembles like the 70, except when taking the firing pin out, press on the 80 Series plunger to remove firing pin. remove the plunger then you can remove the extractor.

Thanks Quack. That is the first illustration I have seen of those parts.

Reassembly of the frame is aided by a small diameter slave pin and tweezers to hold the S80 levers. Use the slave pin from the right to hold the lower lever in place as you plade the sear and disco then push it in to hold all three and push the real sear pin in from the left pushing the slave pin out.
