    For Kimber Ultra Owners

    Since there seem to be growing numbers of folks owning a Kimber of the 3 inch 'Ultra' series, I thought I would recommend a little gadget to you that makes disassembly a whole lot easier.....

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Kimber-Pistol-Gu...item2303d5f6c2

    Yes, I know this little gadget was mentioned a while back, but I never endorse or recommend something unless I try it first. With that in mind, I ordered a couple of them and proceeded to put them to use. I used one of them a few weeks ago, right after I recieved them and I thought "pretty neat".

    Cleaned my three Ultras yesterday and used the little gadgets again.... I was impressed enough to recommend them ! They make dissassebly a lot less of a chore, no need to line up the little 'L' shaped takedown tool that comes with the Ultra.... in fact, the L shaped takedown tool is a thing of the past with this new takedown gadget.

    AAAAA+++++ all the way from me !

    And no, I am not affiliated with this product in any way, just passing on information that I think will benefit others like it has me.

    Not as cheap as the above mentioned tool. But I have been eyeballing this item as well. Have to wait until I can AFFORD the Kimber though.

    As a new Ultra owner, the part that has always been hard for me was when I put the slide back onto the frame. It never seems to just slide back on like my Glocks. I always have to fuss around with the slide to get it to go all the way back to the point where I can then remove the "L" shaped tool and replace the slide release lever. Maybe it's just me.

    Try pushing on the recoil spring to release the L shaped tool. Then install the slide without the tool.

    ETA also make sure your not engaging the grip safety while installing the slide.
