This is in the wrong section. You may wish to move it for better answers.

The round can be removed without disassembly, but it's a sort of "have to hold your mouth right", so unless the gun is in the field, I'd just disassemble.

Remove the cross screw which retains the magazine tube forward end plug. Obviously, take care to have a screwdriver which fits the screw, properly, to avoid marring the surfaces. FWIW, it's easy to slip and scratch something- don't ask how I know...

When the cross screw is removed, the magazine spring will pop the plug and spring will usually fly out so it's desirable to keep mild pressure onto the plug. The spring doesn't produce strong force so no danger, just that the plug can roll under something when it pops out.

When plug and spring are out, the rifle can be angled, muzzle downward, to drop the follower and that errant cartridge. Back together is as simple as removal.

Yes, holsters are necessary for those who own a gun for safety purpose. If you are looking for the 1911 leather holsters then you can find it online as well as offline. I would recommend you to purchase online because here you will get a variety of holster due to which it becomes easier to choose the best one holsters. I also have a gun, personally, I prefer waistband holster because it doesn't cause any problem while running or working.

Made between 1957 & 1961
The .243 was put out starting in 1959. Don't have access to serial # chart, so can't get you any closer.
