    Can someone please tell me how to detail strip my SA SS TRP? Once I’ve field stripped and removed grips, what’s the next step? I’m asking because I suspect the trp is somewhat different than a traditional 1911. Thank you

    Same as the rest of them. Next step is to remove the mainspring housing, then remove thumb safety by wiggling it out.

    Internally, the parts in the frame are no different from a standard 1911. As to the guide rod set up, I bought a standard guide rod and spring cap and omitted the original TRP setup which is a pain in the ass.

    Thank you. And how do you remove an ambi safety?

    Ambi safety should just be attached by some type of pivot point on the pin that connects them, and your grip holds it in place. Both sides should come freely after a little wiggling.

    Take a rag/small piece of leather and pair of pliers and wiggle it as you pull. It will come apart and out.

    There is probably a pin sticking thru frame holding ambi safety on...rotate the ambi safety up and back towards rear of gun get it off the pin...there is a groove inside ambi safety that holds the head of that pin....then the ambi safety will come off.

    I started a thread on this a while ago. Springer ambi's are notoriously difficult to get apart. I haven't gotten back to try mine again, but I will tomorrow and report on it.

    My thoughts are to wrap dental floss around the right side post and use it to tug briskly at the center post as not to put off center stresses on it.

    I even took some dental floss to work today to try this but didn't get the time.

    Thanks all! Using pliers and a scrap of leather (per limbkiller) I finally got the safety apart and the gun broken down. Cleaned everything and reassembled. Now I just have to learn how to do all the work I want done (trigger job, dehorning, etc.)!
