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. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
