    Colt .380 Govt series 80 assembly help

    I need some disassembly/assembly directions for my dad's .380 Colt. It seems he pushed the ejector too far down while assembling the slide and the ejector was hanging downward. He assumed it had broken and proceeded to try and remove it. After removing the safety, hammer, ejector and sear he became frustrated trying to reassemble it so I said I would help him out. All I could find online was the schematic on Colt's site. I also found the directions on how to reposition the ejector when this happens without disassembly but it's too late for that! Any help you might have will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Never mind....I got it back together last night. Surgical loupes and light make it much easier.

    I'm glad you got it. I avoid detail stripping my Pony just because I don't feel like playing with the ejector.
