Yeah, it would have been much better if they'd designed it to require a special, proprietary tool, one that could be easily lost or broken, and was only available from the factory at Full Metal Retail. That would have been SO much better.

It'll take some time to determine if this product is a "flop".

After all.....YOU bought one.

Yup. But more like 30 years. (I built a gun that used that system back in the '80s.) And if one really HATES it, it can be replaced with a "traditional" recoil spring system (that won't work any better, and probably not as well).

BTW, I'd like to nominate this thread's title as MOST HONEST THREAD TITLE IN RUGER FORUM HISTORY. :lol:

If you consider use of a paper clip somehow beneath you, you can also accomplish the takedown using a Vice-Grip or a small C-clamp, if it would make you feel better.

Or if the problem is you can't afford a paper clip, I'll be happy to send you one. Hell, I'll send you two. I'll even paint one black and you can call it your Tactical Takedown Tool. :lol:

Seeing as how User Manuals are easily available for DownLoad on the Ruger Site, I'd say Someone didn't do their Homework before plunking down their Money. :roll:

Is it because of the FLGR? I don't like em, so I change them out. Is there a reason you can't swap out the the FLGR on the 10mm SR1911? Seems like a big deal about nothing.

We live in The Age of Outrage. If you can't find something to be REALLY REALLY PISSED ABOUT every day, you're not trying. :lol:

Apparently, everything else in this guy's life is going pretty well. :wink: :lol:
