So I took a buddy of mine to @Panteao Sportsman's Club to shoot yesterday. After shooting rifles we moved to the pistol bays and he had this happen to his pistol. Looks like the guide rod (?) somehow broke and he doesn't have a clue what to do. Being a plastic gun guy (Glock, Walther) myself and never owning a 1911 (I know, I know) neither do I so I thought I would post it up and see what my fellow CFF friends could offer up. The slide will not go back more than an inch so he can't even take it apart. Suggestions on how to proceed? I'm guessing the grips need to come off and then ???? Anyway, thanks for any help you may be able to give. Much appreciated!
