    Maybe it is staked. There is hole in the frame. I thought maybe a small screw went there. That is where i JB welded it.

    Sure hope that JB Weld does not screw up your pistol.

    It shouldn't. I didn't over load it. Any that is protruding out of the hole ill sand flush with the frame. I'll be checking on it soon.

    Buy a new plunger tube and have it staked into place. Unless it's still under warranty.

    I got it back together. Trigger is much better. Tube did not hold. Going to send it on on warranty. I'll get the ambi safety done too then. The right side was broke when i got it. It was used so sometimes you get a neglected weapon.

    If you mean the right side was broken referring to an existing ambi-safety it may not have been abuse. I have heard that some ambi safety's do not hold up well varying with design and fitting. I had my Ruger 1911 fitted with an ambi safety when I got the trigger worked on. I haven't shot it a lot but have flipped the safety on and off repeatedly. I drill drawing and flipping the safety off while watching TV. I do it sporadically usually until I get tired or my thumb starts to get tender. I'm sure I'm shortening the lifetime of my safety but not all wear has to take place at the range. I'm a firm believer in dry fire practice. Not as much fun as live fire but more convenient and economical and I believe an essential part of an overall practice program to increase shooting skills.

    It would be a whole different story if you were a high level competitive shooter with sponsors buying you ammo or in Delta Force shooting thousands of rounds in a day provided by your rich uncle. But for me I'm okay with my meager existence mainly because I have no choice until my power-ball numbers hit.

    I forgot to mention I hope your JB weld didn't void your warranty.

    I was able to remove all the JB weld. Im not sure how the warranty will go. I did not register it. But i did call and ask what size recoil spring it takes after i got it. Because of it having a threaded barrel and shorter slide as a result. They were nice and sent me a spring. And got the S/N. So maybe it is registered through them. I'll call them in the morning then. There warranty info is here.
