MrFulenwider: Nice !!! I love Kimbers. A very elegant weapon.
nolobede: WTF !?!...10 Seconds without a tool?
I've had My Kimber for a year and haven't done it in less than a minute.... if i can find the damn tool !
I'm puling the Kimber back out to do this right now!
luci734: a thousand apologies! I agree, but that's the only camera I had and the first video I made. The next one will be better!
Robert Jensen: Next time, please, PLEASE, (1) go 70% slower and (2) use clearer(such as HD) video. Any video that goes this fast and it is this grainy will only be useful to people who are already experts with handguns. The rest of us.....not so much.
Tex Sledgehammer: Does this video apply for the models with bushingless barrels?
Mitch Brown: I dont know whats with all the morons posting on here that they cant figure it out or you didn't explain it correctly. I did it in under 60 seconds...
Phil Atencio: Why haven't you made another video? You can't just make one! Come on...
TacticalMedic7: Great video and sweet looking pistol
artinnevada: I just purchased a Ultra Crimson Carry II and was a bit worried, maybe apprehensive, about taking it down the first time. Read and then re-read the manual and then found this video. It worked just as advertised, no tool required just some patience re-inserting the spring assembly. I also found that if I compressed the spring just a bit it would slide in pretty easily. My Kimber is not as easy to break down as my Beretta 92FS but I think this will make a great carry firearm. Thanks for the tips.
Stolte: damn i wished I watched this video before buying NDZ tear down tool. Thank for the upload :)
rdkrklnd: You don't need any tools. My Ultra Carry II is a little tighter than the gun in this video but the spring assembly does wiggle out to the side of the barrel link. And, to put the spring assembly back in... just compress it before inserting. That's all there is to it... no tools required.
rappinfiddler: wow!!!...this was the absolute most craptiest take down video i have ever seen for my weapon!!!....i would never listen to this guy.
luci734: yea, I got scolded a couple times for not showing the whole process :D I figured I would focus on the part that nobody else was talking about... o well, glad it helped
TheGreatOzzie: Thanks for this vid, sir.
Worked great first time (disassembly and assembly). Only suggestion would be to include the slide stop pin removal in the vid... but... eh...
dertyKurty: I just bought a 4" compact custom. Didn't come with a tool :/ i tried your method. Didn't work.
Carlos A G: @kumadog286 My karma ran over your dogma
Carlos A G: Video is crap. You missed the most important part, how to skip use of tool as your title suggests...
luci734: Push the Pin with your right index finger as you pull the slide toward you with your left hand. The pin will slightly pop out on you left side as the notches match between the slide and the frame. Release the slide with your left hand and pull out the pin. The slide should come off the frame at this point. Sorry for the late reply, hope that answered the question.
DirtyChemist: how are you getting the slide off so quick? I can't see if you're pulling the trigger or what you're doing. I just see you pull the slide back then the pin comes out and the slide is off.
RobertKaydoo: Thank you for this video! I use your technique to take down my Tactical Ultra and it works like a charm. No more paperclip for me!
Alexander Brusilovsky: I am dissasembling my Kimber after watching this video for 14 seconds.
Alexander Brusilovsky: That video is a bomb for those who put their paper clip tool on youtube. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Whata waste of time to use that f*g clip if ya don't know tha way.
Awesome,,, MAN A+
Ryan N: awesome, works like a charm for the emp as well.. thanks for the tip
SpartanCombativesGrp: You may WANT to consider Spellcheck.
Logan tight cheeks Harris: You may wat to consider blowing me.
SpartanCombativesGrp: You may want to consider a healthy breakfast, and do some pushups.
Logan tight cheeks Harris: hey man dont mean to jack your question to the guy makin the vid, buy I personally have shot this exact pistol, and to be honest, it is an extremely fun gun to shoot, and as far as the recoil, I started with the gun pointed at the target, and after the round fired, the pistol was immediatly about a foot and a half above where it was. Still, a terrifically fun gun to shoot, and easy to conceal
TheBogband: Thanks... good vid. Took mine apart to clean it last weekend. Actually it was so easy I don't know why anyone would need the tool.
Lanham75: Great!! I was really thinking about ordering a different tool so I didn't have to use the factory scratch my piece tool! BUT....after seeing this and trying it...piece of cake :) I just broke mine down in matter of seconds and re-assembled it too! Who needs a stinking tool...not this feller! Much thanks!
ryanburbridge: watch my vid it may help you fix it
Bryan Carter: @gfishler I was having the same problem when I first tried it with my ultra cdp 2, but found that if you put the Bushing & the Spring Assembly back in together at the same time (slightly compressed) it works perfectly! Thanks for the tips luci734!
Kevin Slavens: If the spring is not positioned correctly, you will need the tool to remove the recoil assembly easily. Once removed, position the spring as shown in the video and see how the assembly will now go in an out easily.
JoeyWads: thats what she said
Paul YouKnowMyNameNeuhaus: This worked for me on the 1st try, and this is my first 1911 that I've ever owned! AWESOME! Thank you!
palpineda: Experienced the same problem. Had to play with it to get it out. Had no choice lost my stupid tool. Getting another one but nice technique to know.
luci734: Your the first to screw it up, congrats!
gfishler: Do not try this. I did and now the spring assembly is stuck half way out and will not come out or go back in. Terrible
gfishler: Do no try this. I did and now the spring assembly is stuck half way up and will not pull out or go back in.
luci734: agreed, internals are the same in your gun so it should work.
justin killeen: Yeah I hate that dam paperclip tool man ! I am going to see if this procedure will work for my 3inch model ultra crimson carry 2. The only real difference is the finish and the Crimson Trace laser grips so I see no reason that your process will not work for me . Good post.
luci734: the Kimber Super Carry Ultra is nice too! :D
luci734: thanks, great reliability for this gun. handful of FTE until it was broken in after 500 rds or so. (as expected) perfect since then.
its a small .45 so its going to naturally going to have a little more pep compare to a 5'' model :O I got very proficient with it after lots of practice. a pleasure to carry, lots of power for a small package. My wife's favorite gun, if I may add.
Steve Koz: Excellent video. One thing I didn't like was having to use a tool to break down a Kimber. How's the reliability of this gun? I've got my eye on the Ultra TLE II. Was thinking about the blue but might consider the stainless after your report. You also say it kicks like a mule. More felt recoil then other .45's you've shot? Appreciate your help!.. Thanks.
luci734: Glad to hear it helped! Enjoy your new toy :D
oldarmy57: Thank you for this outstanding video help me make up my mind about getting one. will be picking up one Tuesday
oldarmy57: Thank you for this outstanding video help me make up my mind about getting one. will be picking up one tuesday
luci734: The black finish is holding up good, a little wear and tear as expected. You do need to keep up with regular lubrication because it will rust from carrying it all the time. I would consider the stainless version if I where to do it again. also, do yourself a favor and get the upgraded sight for the gun. This gun kicks like a mule and good sights will really help you with the follow up shot. Good luck!
bigdaddyitalia22: I know it's not super vid related I'm trying to decide what model I'n the ultra line to get any I'n put
How's your black finish holding up
Thank you for your time
luci734: Kimber started making this version a little more recent grandpa. The manual shows no method of disassembling the handgun without a tool. And it's $26.00 a box, get it right!
Davidautofull: Sorry guys, where have you been? the 1911 was made in 1911 and that was the first time it was dissasembled without a tool. i bet everyone here uses $25.00 per box 45 ammo. RELOAD.
