I saw a UTube video that had a plastic/Nylon type of tool with hole in middle that is used to hold down the spring to insert the metal like key back in the hole. It was about 1 1/2" wide and about 4" long and one end had was cut at an angle to use in cleaning the magazine. Please post to this email if you know where to purchase one?
Thanks,
J

:confused: Haven't see one of those. I'm not sure what it does. Disassembly of magazines isn't that difficult. Please elaborate.

I've never heard of a tool like that for breaking down a magazine.

I've seen them on Ebay from time to time.

Push the top of the magazine catch down with a pen a little over half way and place a small Allen wrench through one of the mag holes and that will hold the mag spring in place. Remove the catcher and carefully pull the Allen wrench out with your hand on top of the mag and slowly let the spring extend out..{p.s...note the position of how the spring comes out because it has to go back in exactly the same}

Kit

I ordered the kit for $20 after the Utube person told me who made it.
Will let you know when it comes in.

I use it on my CDP II .45 & yes I've field stripped it like a man bare handed but that's silly... This tool cost $12.00 & just makes it easier & eliminates possible scratches on my $1500 gun when putting back together. Cheers Rick Lovett

I would like to get the plastic tool so that I can clean the gun easier. However, I agree that $40 is too much for the tool. Cedarhill mentioned one for $12, but no info on where to get it from. Anyone have a link for a $12 version ( or close to it)?

tool

Today I received my tool to put the spring back into my Kimber Pro Carry II and clean the magazines. Here is the email of the person who makes them and she said to contact her for the purchase. It costs $20 and tonight when I try it I will let you know how well it works.

takedown tool

I ordered one of these kits from Rebecca and she was an absolute delight to deal with. The whole deal cost $20 and was shipped immediately. Works like a dream! I would recommend it to anyone as it makes the guide rod disassembly a breeze.

Pro Carry II

Mine is a 9mm which I have made it my favorite pistol. I am now exploring the 45 also but haven't decided which model of the many that Kimber offers. I have had two Colt model 45's in the past, one a Commander and another full size. One was stolen and the other I traded for a camera. I regret not having both of them now that I am more into shooting pistols. Today I am going to shoot my brother's Colt 45 auto.
