    Can anyone tell me what this Brownells tool is used for? I can't find it on the Brownells website either and I'm at a loss. Looks to be some sort of smithing lever.

    Looks similar to a 1911 slide pusher.

    It may be the tool to remove the rebound spring in a Smith & Wesson revolver.

    It could also be a shop made tool made for something only the maker knows. Brownells' sells phenolic tool handles in bulk.

    Gets the Gold Star, it is used for removing/replacing SW slide rebound spring.

    It is shaped quite a bit different from the S&W rebound tool, and the 1911 slide pusher has a hole in the end to capture the hammer of sear pin..

    Ive got a gp100. Do you have to have that to remove the assembly or just nice to have?

    Not a must have, but sure makes it a lot easier when doing a trigger job and for cleaning. I made a homemade version years ago that worked on the same principle to push down on the retaining plunger to release the trigger assembly.

    It’s a tool known as a Ruger Popper
    It’s used to release the trigger guard assembly of a wheel gun
    I’ll buy it if it’s for sale
