Well, I will start with the "as of yet non-existing" takedown tool!

Haha . Duane - you are forgetting the chop-stick ''tool''.  Honestly . the bottom 2" where there is usually a taper - works a treat.  It'll keep me going for ever if truth known!

Brenden .. really I can't think of much else ... assuming that is you have cleaning gear suitable for handguns already.  Dissassembly might - for some - be made a tad easier by possession of a small vice with soft leather jaw liners ..... not that I have used a vice yet myself.  Toothpicks, toothbrush and ''Q'' tips otherwise will (should IMO) see you with a good complement of equipment.  Oh and, the best you already have ..... MkII human hands!

Actual cleaning liquids etc ... again you may have stuff already but - #9, G96, CLP, Rig, Militech1 .. these things all help the clean-up process.

Any specific questions?  Bring em on back. :)

 The absolute great aid for me is the third hand offered from a small vice with leather padded jaws.  Mine has a base that allows any angle that may be needed.  I will post a photo later.  

Anyone needing free leather for their vice,  drop me a line.

I am working on one.....
Conceptualization only, actual dimensions will probably change.

Forgot to say earlier Brenden ... the punch? .... 1/16".

I posted this dwg on another thread but it is one I drew up based on my a-s-sessment of a takedown tool .... and daresay ultimately could be made out of Nylon 66 or similar ... or even moulded from high density polyethylene ... simple - like chopsticks! ;D



Excuse dashes added but the software is seeing a ''naughty'' word with in a word.  Duane - that is now and again becoming a pain!!

The punch is a concern for me-A "plastic" one would ease my mind a lot..I know brass is supposed to be ok, but I can imagine slipping and EEK!!! An extra finish is applied.. :-[

Brenden .. if the slide is set back to the correct amount then slipping really is unlikely.  

Let us assume this has been done, then with gun on it's left side, on say a piece of 2x4 with a 1" deep hole available in it ... such that the pin sits over this ... you simply insert punch to contact pin and it is guided by the relief hole in the slide.  Only a gentle tap or two should be needed and the punch is guided all the way.

Only a modicum of care is needed.  

I like the makings of your design Shelby .....

Shelby - do you have a 2D or iso - just dimensioned as against rendered?

Will you explain your  tool design, with arrows and text on drawing?  Or is this possible to do?

RJ:

I like that ingenous "third hand" you have arranged.  I'm going to give it a try.

Sorry for the delay....its seems upgrading my CAD software turned into a huge ordeal.... :o  This should help to clear things up.  The squared protrusion is inserted into the slide to hold it open for disassembly.  The tool also guards the slide from slipping of the punch.  You may want to run a sanity check of all my dimensions  :P
