Cleaning Colt/Walther .22 Government Model First Time

Instructions say to reassemble by reversing disassembly.  Hah!  The recoil spring plug that holds the recoil spring in place does not go far enough back for the slide stop to go through the frame.  There is no hole through that recoil spring plug and it would need to go at least another .25" back in the frame for the slide stop to go through.  The only instructions I can find online are videos that skip this step, or the useless manual that came with the gun.

The silvery piece the recoil spring goes up to must not be all the way back in the frame when you put the slidestop in.
