I've seen guide rods for full-size 1911s that came from the factory with the hole drilled through them. And I believe I saw competition pistols for sale that had pre-drilled guide rods. My tool basically does the same thing on a guide rod too thin to drill through. I suppose you could drill through one but a hole big enough to stick a paperclip in would weaken it.

I was looking at a Taurus 1911 Officer .45 ACP at Taurus' site after I saw it somewhere else online, then I started looking at other similar size .45s. I can't remember what I was looking for specifically. I almost s**t myself and had a heart attack when I saw an article about one of Springfield Armory's little .45s they used to make. They had a plastic takedown piece, AKA disassembly assist tool, shaped a lot like the tool I made. I couldn't believe my eyes. It's longer, and since it's plastic it snaps onto the guide rod. I've been trying to post a good picture of it for a month but still can't post it. I did find a PDF of Springfield's 1911-A1 operator's manual online. It shows the disassembly method I used on page 42, and an alternate method on page 43.
