    I have a SA Micro .45acp and would like to know if anyone knows of a practical way for fieldstripping this pistol without the supplied tool. The tool is a little piece of plastic that snaps on the guiderod taking tension off the spring/guiderod assembly aiding in teardown. I also have a Kimber four inch in 9mm that requires a tool for teardown. I haven't been able to accomplish this with either without use of the tools. This is the only thing I don't like about either. Any help would be appreciated.

    I use the "glock" grip and remove the slide stop when it is aligned.

    remove the slide, compress the guide rod/recoil spring assembly, and remove.
    no tools needed.

    What am I doing wrong? I've removed the slide but can't compress the recoil spring assembly and remove it or the barrel. I would really like to do this without the tool. I don't like the idea of needing a tool to fieldstrip any pistol. Is it just me?

    it's similar to the way that i take my EMP down.
    i push down on the end of the guide rod with my thumb, and pull back with my index & middle finger on the larger spring, sort of like using a syringe.

    Yes, but it's taken down in the same "basic" way. I was using it more as a reference to try and help him.

    You sure are offering a lot of advice yourself. I'm glad you're so helpful!
