Seecamp Conversion Colt 1911 disassmbly

I have a Seecamp Conversion Colt Cbt Cdr 1911.

Before I attempt to disassemble and ruin something-

Anyone know if basic disassembly for cleaning is same a standard 1911?

Pistol was done by Seecamp.

Not going to attempt to disassemble the mechanism, just want to separate to main groups- frame, slide, barrel etc and clean.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

UPDATE- Dave Wally, Seecamp new owner called me. Explained that he received no info on this conversion from old owners. He even called them to ask.
Thanks, Dave.

Looks like you got good preliminary advice from the M14 fellows.

I recall Seecamp thread discussions on the 1911 forum as well.

field stripping...

just like the same as a 1911 - just be mindful of taking the stocks off....if you don't have to...don't!




The hammer bar could become disconnected and the spring could fall out...

Seecamp's conversion sure brings back memories. Came that close to sending a Gov't model off to them in the 1970's to be converted. Always regretted I didn't. A true Colt 1911 DA was always a missing link in Colt's product line. The Double Eagle & New Agent didn't fill the bill.

something to take note of....

if you look at the picture I posted - look at the trigger for a moment...

Do you see what looks like the Colt 1911 SA trigger hiding behind the DA Trigger? Well, that's what it is! Squeezing the DA Trigger puts pressure on the SA trigger releasing the sear...nifty setup!

I had a Colt Double Eagle; the trigger mechanism, although similar to the Seecamp version, is minus the SA trigger. It pivots on its pin and is linked to the trigger bar.
