Is there a way to remove the slide without marking it? I noticed each time I place the round to wedge out the bolt that is slightly marks the slide

That brass mark should come right off.  An easy way to removed the assembly pin is use a very small screwdriver with some tape wrapped around it on the round part just before the flat blade begins.  This provides a padded fulcrum to lever out the pin.

The idea is to take pressure off the assembly pin by locking the slide back. Oh, that’s right the P-3AT doesn’t have a slide lock. Some folks rack the slide back and insert a block of wood, hard rubber or plastic to keep the slide back. If pulled back far enough it also gives more room to insert your assembly pin extraction tool.  I personally don’t bother pulling the slide back as I have a very thin APE tool.

I hold my fingers on either side of the assembly pin while I depress the small screwdriver, which is wrapped with electrician’s tape. The tape not only protects the slide but also acts as a fulcrum to slowly remove the pin. With the newer small-head P-3AT assembly pins, I use an even thinner screwdriver.

Wilson – who’s feeling all tingly getting to use that fulcrum word again ;D

I use a little Hoppes #9 Benchrest editon bore cleaner. It high in ammonia and considered a copper solvent. Brass is mostly copper with some zinc. I apply some with a qtip and let sit then wipe it off with nylon brush or rag.

i like using a large plastic drywall anchor that looks like the image below.  works well and definitely doesn't mar up the slide.

Who cares if ya mark it up a bit?

It's a carry weapon, prone to banging into all kinds of things, not a safe queen.


Just another point of view. ;) :D

This is a great idea and one that I am going to steal! I have been using a clean patch wrapped around spent .380 brass...saw it in a youtube video somewhere...

Anything plastic would really help you.

I place a small piece of paper between the slide and my screw driver. But plastic is much better for prying like the dry wall anchor shown above. A great idea!

No one will ever see it in your pocket.
I pull the slide back to line up th pin with the thinner part of the slide and it gives me a bigger space to slip the case lip under to pry the pin out.

ha!  yeah, believe me, i've thought about that too.  i know it's just an inexpensive pocket carry gun but... i still hate scratching up my firearms.  that's why i looked all around my shop for plastic tools to use and found that the right drywall anchor works really well for me.  to each his/her own  ;)

As far as scratching up my firearms intentionally or semi-carelessly, I guess I've always been one to figure the better I take care of them, the better they will take care of me.
