That rug really tied

I have a 8-10 year old P226R with that one piece grip that requires that special tool to remove. I don’t have the tool. Is there a way to remove the grip without the tool? Or do I have to buy the tool? I’m going to be rebuilding the pistol with new springs and new grips and have to figure out how to remove this grip first.

I have used a box end wrench before. Simply insert and twist. Start with a smaller size and go up till you get the right size that works.

Will work on both single and double stack mags. Also have stuck a finger into the magwell and pushing out and insert something like an old credit card on each side to upld open and then pushing grip off.

I have removed them with my thumbs, just get a hold of it and spread it slightly and it will come right off!

I'd be surprised if there weren't a YouTube video on this very task.

Like the others have said, it is not hard to take them off with your hands.

On a side note, when reinstalling them, use the credit card trick over the trigger spring, to prevent destroying the spring. There are a few videos about this as well.
