OK I have a question....I have an Ultra CPD II, my first Kimber. I do not use the tool to capture the recoil spring. I pull the slide off and take the spring out without any problem. When re assembling I just push the recoil spring assembly back in the slide. Is this wrong ?? Am I doing something that may cause problems in the future with the recoil spring ??

I don't think you will hurt anything on your pistol. Just be careful with your spring. Eye protection! If the spring gets away from you, you might not find it.

A paper clip with the end bent will work as a tool. I have heard of allen wrenches being used too. The bent part can't be too long or the spring won't come out.

A friend stripped my pistol the way you are doing and said what is the big deal? I thought the spring would shoot out when you removed the slide but that is not the case. I have more problem getting my Beretta spring back in than the Kimbers!!
