Well this is helpful to be aware of. Sorry it's such a pain, thanks for documenting what you've gone through to get it corrected, as it sounds like it's an easy mistake to make.

You are all quite welcome. It was 75% me being impatient/not searching/asking for help before things went pair shaped.

25% is the design itself. We all get spoiled on the blindingly stupid design of Glock, but it's something to be able to take things down to parts level and be able to replace nearly everything on your own.

Below are the YouTube links to the videos that guided me to ultimate success.

That plunger spring for the hand is a huge improvement over the original Colt flat hand spring. It makes the hand a better part that’s easier to make and the spring is no longer a weak point.

Wow, that's really interesting. The number of cowboys, ranch hands, frontier folk and the Army's armorers curses to Sam Colt must be still hovering over the Plains.Image
