I need some help here...Is there a specific tool I can use to remove the grip? I see it's an allen nut, but, what size? Where do you pick up one long enough to reach?

Long handled 3/16ths allen wrench

You can also use a 3/16ths allen bit in a socket with an extention.

I use a 3/16 hex bit on the end of one of those screwdrivers that allows you to swap out the bit.

Also, watch out for the safety detent spring on the left side (safety side). It's not difficult to lose.

Oh...Ideas on where to pick one up? Any hardware store, or is it a weapon specific tool?

Anywhere that sells tools. Not weapon specific at all.

It's a little off-topic, but I replaced the allen screw on mine with a standard slotted head screw to make removal easier as it just requires a screwdriver.

Just my 0.02, FWIW.

I picked up a good set at Wal-Mart for a decent price.

I got a T-handle allen tool from my local hardware store and the long shaft on it is perfect for getting to the grip screw. Works like a charm.
