I inherited a very nice Model 9 from my father in law. It's the model with blue and brass medallions on the grip -- CW on one side, 6.35 on the other. I wanted to thoroughly clean this piece and watched a video on how to do it. But the video was for the later model with an outside-accessible screw instead of the medallions. BIG DIFFERENCE! You need a special tool to remove the medallion-style hand grips. But, long story short, I've been advised to just leave the hand grips on and forget about taking it down to the trigger. I have cleaned everything down to that. I want to fire this gun, see if the striker spring is strong enough to fire dependably, whether I can hit anything with it at ten feet etc. Any wisdom about not breaking it down and cleaning further than taking the slide off and accessing the spring and the striker spring and the little parts you can reach from there? The advice I got seemed sound, based on not damaging the grips or trigger mechanism on this very old, very small gun. (Yeah, it was WAY too hard to unlatch the slide and then relatch it, but I didn't hurt it.) Really just interested in any comments before I take it to the firing range. I'm not interested in the gun as a carry, just want to see what it does, and then either sell or just pass it along to my son or daughter later.
