The grip screws can also be removed using the sidewall of the magazine as a tool, and the grip safety arm of the sear spring can be used to remove the magazine catch. The actual tool, as issued, had only a pin punch and a screwdriver, all that was needed for field maintenance.

The only parts that should not be removed by the user are the front sight, the rear sight, the spring tunnel, the grip screw bushings, and the ejector. The mainspring housing should not be disassembled in any normal stripping, but it can be and might be in an extreme case, such as the gun having been soaked in salt water.
