New to the forum. Have a 2nd hand Defender - great shooter - just shot 1st time and just cleaned tonight. Question - dis-assembly is very easy. Assembly was another issue. I do not have the manual nor the clip to hold the guide rod out for assembly so it was not real fun. Is there a tool available or ideas you have to make bushingless 1911s assembly easier ?
Also does anyone know where I can download a defender owners manual. One is coming from Colt but they do not have it on their website.
Thanks much !
