I know this thread is old and has gotten bumped occasionally - but it's one of the top google hits for "22/45 can't remove mainspring housing" and I have an important but not unexpected detail to highlight -

I tried the "insert empty magazine, hold trigger and tap muzzle-down against a non-marking surface" a few times and was very sad that it wasn't working. Then I realized that at least in the mk3 and 22/45 this *won't* work if at some point during your troubleshooting you turned the safety back on. Just like for the normal field stripping process the safety must be off, otherwise the hammer cannot drop back into the correct position.
