This is a tool that every 1911 owner should have in his maintenance kit! The Widget is a truly useful disassembly/reassembly aid for the 1911. I use my Widget every time I reinstall a thumb safety, need to start a sticky pin moving, need to tear down a magazine with a welded base and more. Made of black nylon, this tool will not scratch your pistol like some home-made versions may. Instructions included!
