    Need a better picture but first guess would be a two piece guide rod. Need to remove the end you can see with a tool, then you can rotate the bushing. I owned a couple with that system before I went to a reverse cone lockup.

    This is correct. Usually it is a hex wrench to turn out the short piece of the rod. You can then disassemble like a standard 1911.

    John retired. He is a definite loss to the 1911 community.

    Is there a version of this video where the work is shown on screen?

    I don't know, I just searched for "1911 two piece guide rod" on youtube. The first step, unscrewing the end of the guide rod, is clear enough. After that it's a standard 1911 field strip.

    You may be able to find a better one.

    I think the first part was enough, like you said. That was the part that seemed to be stumping the op. I was watching out of curiosity as a 1911 owner and fan.

    That and it sounded like either Japanese anime pron in background, or the guy has a Husky sled dog team playing in the living room.
