OK let's do another one;
Pachmayr Widget Assembly Tool for the 1911
The inexpensive, must-have tool for any 1911 enthusiast.
Have you heard of (or worse, made the) evil crescent of shame
on your 1911 frame? By using this tool you can avoid scratching the frame when installing your slide release/thumb safety.
It is ideally suited for the 1911-style handgun.
Made of a non-marring blue polymer so it will not scratch even the finest firearms.
• 6" long
• 0.25" x 0.25" thick
• Designed to depress the plunger tube spring, simplifying assembly and disassembly of tightly fitted 1911’s.
• It can be used with almost any gun
• Will not mar finish of gun parts.
I have owned this tool for a year now and have used it every time I work/clean my 1911's.
Can I do without it? Yes.
Do I enjoy using this? Yes.
Is it worth the $4? Meh Use the cap from a bic ballpoint.
It does work
, but it really needs to be stiffer. It is quite flexible and requires some getting use-to. I have however, experienced the protection it provides my guns from the dreaded crescent scratch of shame!
