    How to field strip my amigo

    I'm having trouble field stripping my amigo. I am new to pistols. Does anyone know of a good YouTube video or some other place I can find a visual guide for this?

    Welcome Kenworthy. I don't have the Amigo, so I'm just guessing. I think it probably disassembles same as my Kimber 4" which also has the "internal bushing". If you lock the slide back, there should be a small hole in the guide rod. A tool should come with the pistol, but a straightened paper clip with about 1/4" of it bent to a 90 degree angle, should work. Insert the short end of the clip into the hole & ease the slide forward to catch on the clip. That releases the spring pressure & allows you to align the slide stop with the small notch in the slide. Press the stop out from the RH side of the slide & the slide comes off.

    Now after saying all that, might be best to wait until someone comes along to verify or deny.

    Anyway, congrats & git 'er cleaned up & let us know how it shoots!

    It'll be similar to this.
