Is this a new gun?
If so, did it not come with instructions?
Is it the LDA mutation?
If not, it comes apart pretty much like a real 1911 for which instructions are at:

no this is not a new gun and it was shot very little when i got it. ITs not the LDA model. the guy told us it dissaesmbles just like a 45. is there even any reason to take the gun apart anyway

If it's not the LDA model, it strips just like a 1911. Even the LDA is similar but there are many more smaller and more important parts NOT to lose in the receiver than the SA model.
