I hate the tool but I think you should always keep the necessary equiptment with you when your carrying, who knows if you'll have to strip it down? If you've never done this before, it might bea good idea to get a parts schematic for your firearm. One shows the way in which the sear spring is supposed to sit in relation to the sear assembly, and the other is how it is NOT. Most everything is identical, I just happened to use a Kimber Pro Carry II, because it is a wonderful pistol, it is the only I own, and it is the one i use as my primary carry and range pistol. Now these three things are very important. I probably fired off about 25 rounds with perforated primers. Now before we continue, notice that bar coming down off the hammer.

I believe there are special jigs to allow this to happen correctly. You want no risk of putting a round through the wall and into someone's head. Now use your punch to push the pin out as per figure 4. The concave curved in part of the assembly faces outward, and that is where the curved part of the hammer goes into. To make matters worse, inside the backstrap, that spring is pushing a little plunger thing down into that hole. Now just push the barrel out and the bushing will come with it. Start by ejecting the magazine not shown and locking the slide back.

Remove the slide stop and set it aside. Why don't they just meld the two together? Oh and just so you know, the top of figure 5. You now MUST be the bigger person in all altercations, because you have the means to defend yourself with lethal force, and escalating the situation can be construed as premeditated murder. There are plenty of inexpensive classes around, and I'm sure you can even find some peope who know what they are doing who are willing to teach you.
Description: Removing the bushing can be done one of two ways. First press down and hold down the firing pin block with your thumb. When you're sure the chamber is clear and all ammunition has been removed from the room, let the slide forward and engage the thumb safety. My barrel wall is nice and thick his is paper thin, we'll see who can sustain fire longer. Perfect alignment of slide-stop and takedown notch.
