Home Made De-Jammer Tool

Had someone ask what the brass rod is for? That’s simple. A home-made squib tool / de-jammer. It’s longer to be able to handle long-slide 1911’s and race-guns. But don’t kid yourself, it’s not just the re-loaders who suffer squibs.

Shoot enough factory ammo and you will eventually see just about everything. Including kabooms.

The rod is solid brass since it’s a lot softer than steel. So no worries, it doesn’t mar your rifling or chamber. The larger end is to make it easier to push the rod by hand, press your weight against a shooting bench, or worst case: Whack it with a hammer. Luckily never needed to do that. Yet.

Watching one being used can be heart wrenching for a pistol princess.

How these were made? A bunch of us chipped in a few bucks and bought two sections of brass bar stock. We cut it up and fashioned them together. Very economical. I’ve never seen another group do it, but we did get the idea from somewhere. So if you have a version, I would like to see it!

It’s MacGyver cool and always gets the looks from the Bob Villa types. It even doubles as an improvised black-jack.
