Various features of the Pistol Pal makes opening the takedown latch a snap, serve as a punch to drive out tight stubborn bolt stops and also has a self-contained tool for removing that pesky extractor! It even serves as a magazine loading assistant on MKIII magazines.


Sized to fit your shooting box, or in your pocket. This excellent tool was designed and is manufactured by a professional gunsmith on modern CNC machine tools. The body/punch is CNC machined from rugged, non-marring Delrin which is already used for many firearm applications today. The latch pull loop is heavy duty, braided stainless steel wire. Both the loop and tempered steel extractor tool are affixed to an Aluminum cap that screws into the top of the tool.


The "Pistol Pal" extractor tool also works great for the new Ruger® MKIV and MKIV 22/45 pistols, to remove the extractor for changing to an aftermarket extractor and for cleaning.


Stop struggling with takedown and cleaning and order your "Pistol Pal" today!

    I wish Ruger would have included this when I bought my Mark 2. Save you time with the infamous part of the Mark 1-3 series. Also used this to change out the extractor.

    I purchased the Gunsmither tool almost on a whim, expecting to tosss it into my range bag 'Just in case'. About a week after receiving it, I had an extractor problem in a local competition. Out came my little Gunsmither tool and I was quickly back in the match. This is a handy tool that I highly recommend to all Ruger Mk shooters

    I bought this tool specifically for the pin for removing the extractor. It works perfectly making the removal and installation of the extractor effortless. Great tool that is my gun box now.

    I usually only use the bit for the extractor but OMG sooooo much easier. Whole heartily approve and encourage its use if you know what you are doing

    Amazingly simple idea in a good form. Put it with your tools and you'll not have to look for a paper clip or punch
