. . . decided to watch the section on the 239 in the armorer's DVD first. Just found out that removing the main spring and strut assembly my require more than just a screwdriver. As a result I didn't get to the level of detail I was hoping for.



Any tips other than purchase the Sig Armorer's tool for removing the 239 main spring and strut assembly? I came up with some ideas but figured some one may have already tried a sure fire method. If I need to purchase the tool, then so be it.



Thanks in advance.

You CAN'T on the 239. Every other gun, yes. 239, no.

I'd recommend getting the armorer's tool; useful tool to have in your range bag. You can get one for about $30 at TGS.

Can't do what? The only difference that I am aware of is that the hammer strut pin is an integral part of the hammer on the P239 (and all DAK handguns).

Can't do it without the tool.

Okay ... thought you were saying something else. I've got a P239 inbound and wasn't expecting significant differences with what I am already familiar with (i.e. P226).

I just read a tip suggesting the use of a nipple wrench for a black powder firearm. Next time I have a chance to pull the grips and try it out, I'll give it a try. Seems logical, the shape of the tool is similar, could save a few bucks considering I already have one.

The technique on the 239 is different than the 226. Same concept, similar parts, but you can't use the same approach.

Well, I gave this a shot and while conceptually it's sounds good, my nipple wrench is a bit too thick on the sides. I won't be able to fully capture the end of the strut without marring the frame. Looks like a Sig tool will be on my shopping list.

Isn't that what I already told you? :-p

Yes you did, but I just had to give this idea a try! It sounded like it had some merit.
