I recently acquired three Super X Model 1 shotguns. Two XTR's and a field grade. The field grade had a totally disintegrated recoil buffer and the follower was beaten up badly. One of the XTR's looked almost unfired, and the other, a very high serial number, was somewhere in between.

So, I decided to do some maintenance. I broke them down and I am replacing two buffers and two recoil spring followers. I made a tool to hold the recoil spring back so I can easily remove and install the new follower. I took some 3/4" PVC pipe that fits over the end of the recoil spring tube, drilled a hole in one end and epoxy-ed an end cap on. Then, I took a picture hanging clip and modified it with a Dremel tool and pliers. The clip slips into the slot in the recoil spring tube and I attached it with braided picture hanging wire. The tool cost me nothing to make because I had the materials on hand. It worked!

I just drilled a 1/8" hole through the tube about inch down from top of the slot - used a screwdriver to pull spring down then stuck the drill bit in hole - Simple.

Yes. I read about drilling a hole. I prefer not to drill a hole in mine.
