    Kimber Pro Series Question?

    I aquired a Kimber Pro Tactical a few week's ago and was wondering if anyone know's a way to get around using the take down tool to remove the recoil spring/guide rod from the pistol? I can't seem to get it out without the take down tool as I can with my Ultra CDP.

    Anyone found the trick to do this?

    I can field strip my Ultra without any stinking take down tool, but have yet to figure out if it can be done with the Pro model, to get it apart I have to use the TDT.

    Any ideas?

    Ti, Can do my buddys the same as my (two) UC CDP II's. Can't figure out what would be different with your weapon.

    Compress towards muzzle at the chamber end and lift skywards.-------

    I can get the slide off just fine just not the recoil spring/guide rod without the TDT in whille taking it down so far.

    That's weired, I can take down my CDP without the TDT also, it must be so new that the spring tension is what is holding it in place so well. At least I know now it can be done and so I will put a bit more effort into coaxing the spring out without the TDT.

    Ti, also feel that it would almost have to be the guide rod and not the springs that is hampering the lifting. ------

    True that, the guide rod is being difficult, the guide rod being the most pain not wanting to come out without the TDT.

    When I carry my Pro-Carry HDII, I put a paper clip in my wallet. Just in case I ever have to take it apart, I'll always have something to use. (so far never needed it)

    But have you stripped your Pro Carry without the take down tool?
