The bottom photo is a replica of the original RJ brass tool.

The top middle is Brian's tool. What's the difference between the two?
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

The function is the same; RJ's brass tool was just of a different quality.

The bottom is for assembly, which is a real ^%$#%^&&*. The ones to remove the take down pin I just lay a allen wrench on it's side with the  1/16th sticking up, line up the pin, and press down. That's the easy part.

The bottom tool is also for aligning the slide and frame holes to reinsert the takedown pin.  You use the tool in the ejection port like a wedge and you insert or pull back until the holes are perfectly aligned.

It's true what they say about having the right tool makes the job a lot easier.

I learned a trip from a post here years ago...buy a blue plastic buss puller at Lowes for a few bucks, Dremel a semicircular slot in one of the jaws and it is the perfect spring compression tool for putting the recoil spring assembly back in the slide.

Whatever works; RJ's brass tool just has a quality tactile feel to it that feels good in my hand.

We could make these in brass, aluminum, titanium, gold or silver. For price reasons aluminum is the cheapest and still does the job. Just trying to keep prices down.

RJ's brass tool was no more than $20 but he may have made them himself.

Having right stuff and tools.     Hard
Making them.    Easy
Making them look good      Very hard    Takes a long time
