I recently acquired a springfield px9151 1911 and am trying to give it a teardown, clean, and lube and for some reason the barrel will not come out from the slide. I have the bushing off, guide rod/spring assembly out and just cant get the barrel to let loose. It goes partially but then gets bound up? And yes, the part that the take down pin goes through is down against the barrel. Any help/suggesitons?
Edit: Crisis averted, just needed a little persuasion, must have been in their for awhile.
I agree 100%. A little CLP and a gentle push and it slide right out
