did I change out the firing pin correctly?

I noticed that on the Ruger SR1911 the firing pin removal was a little more simple than the Remington 1911. On the Ruger I just used an Awl to push the firing pin down and slide that rear plate out. When I installed the new firing pin spring I just pushed the firing pin back down and slide the rear plate back over it.

On the Remington it has a button I have to push to take out the firing pin out and to put the firing pin back in.


is it really that simple on the Ruger?
