You Do What Now

I found a field service manual for the Browning Hi-Power.

A "special tool" is required to hold the hammer while you are removing the sear pin and sear.

There are instructions for making your own tool in the back.

You take a nail and bent it into a U shape.  0.44" inside between the legs and the legs are about an inch overall.

A nail.

I've gotten so used to "purchase proprietary single use fixture" that instructions on how to make my own part out of common hardware seems strange.
