Does anyone use an ISPT?

I just received mine in the mail. Just in case you are like me the initials stand for Idiot Scratch Prevention Tool! It cost me 10 dollars for three. Used one for the first time after cleaning my Raptor and reassembled the gun.It definitely gave me a more comfortable feeling when putting the slide stop back in the Raptor!https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/att...1&d=1472932142

Tilt head to the left it is easier to read.

Already have the scratch on my Eclipse ultra. Son was cleaning the guns and had it assembled before I could get to it. Not that big a deal to me it's a service gun and gets carried every day. I carry in Leather and Kydex so there's scratches and finish rub in other places. Gives it character. Range gun or safe queen and it would bother me.

I have used a patch for cleaning under the slide stop while installing to prevent any possible scratches too.

I've never used one and honestly non of my guns have an idiot scratch. If I ever get back on a real computer and I remember or someone reminds me I'll show you why.

In all my decades of 1911 use, never felt the need for any type of tool to instal the slide stop. No scratches for me, although some guns are a lot more susceptible to it then others. Springfields for one, I use either a heavy business card or a box cutter blade to slightly push the pin in before I push the slide stop in. Both my Springfields have poorly finished/too long slide stop retaining pins.

Why didn't you use a guitar pick like I do? They work great and are a whole lot cheaper than the tool you bought.

Never thought of the guitar pick. I have lots of those floating around the house.

I thought about a guitar pick or fashioning something out of some thin plastic. Instead I opted for something made to order that fits perfectly over the mag release button and stays in place. I used it on my Raptor and EMP today. I like how nice it works. Also on guns that do not have a bushing and the recoil spring is already compressed.
