Very helpful guide, but I have one question: What exactly is going on in the last two pictures in Post #10? I'd like to ensure my striker channel is dry as I think I got some lube in it when I cleaned it last. Does that end-piece of the slide just come out, and then the striker assembly? Or do you need to press/move something first to get it out?

Thanks!

outstanding PPS technical/instructional thread with perfect hi quality in-focus pictu

This is an outstanding PPS technical/instructional thread with perfect hi quality in-focus pictures and annotations, even. Well done indeed!

Thanks for all the work it took!

I'm not sure if this video had already been mentioned (I read this posting yesterday, but I don't remember seeing this), but I just made the swap this afternoon using this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMvxVnHu3Pk

There is a second part to that, which covers reassembly. I did the work in front of my computer, and it went very well. One thing I did which wasn't covered was to deburr the S disconnector with a stone, and I burnished 0.6 micron WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide) from Lower Friction onto all moving parts.

Also, not mentioned in the video is a small spring visible in the back left of the magazine well- make sure not to loose that, and make sure it stays in place when reassembling the pistol. Using the video, a few simple tools, and a little common sense, and you'll be able to make the swap yourself.

A very big thank you for this thread! I have a background in armoring and smithing modern military arms and this was hugely beneficial. I had everything unpinned and I didn't want to damage the receiver so I needed some guidance. My particular receiver came out very hard and required light tapping with a small hammer and plastic rod to prevent any damage.

Thank you again! Keep up the good work.

WOW! First few steps are very Glock like. I do like the complete assembly insert though. Thanks.

I've read the thread and am unsure about one point.
Can you leave the backstrap in place and never remove it? ever.
That is correct. I played with the one mine for the novelty, but haven't even thought of taking it off for any purposes in ages. The pistol will still field strip just fine.

Agreed, I've found field stripping no problem. How about disassembly like described in this thread?
The bacstrap comes off when you are performing a complete sear block and disconnector disassembly/replacement. The sear block on the M1 is completely different than a M2 model......which has no removable backstrap.
