    This is the biggest problem with disassembly for me...getting the pin out without scratching metal or bowing the polymer frame. I don't want to break anything!

    The easiest way for me is to actually start the pin but not to push all the way just flush.

    I tryed that and the second time I did it was a breeze. Other than just about putting my eye out while removing the pin. it works great. I have neglected cleaning mine since it was such a bitch. Nothing against female dogs. Thank you for sharing that with us. You are one fart smeller. Meant to say smart feller. Thanks, mesadeldoug

    Just tried to do it again. Great! Taurus should include this in their manual and give you a new pistol of your choice.

    My early model A I would insert pin before sliding the slide on .. Sent that gun back to Taurus for extractor issues .Taurus sent me a new C series.. GREAT CS !! On the new gun the pin was a MAJOR PITA .Had to file pin. Old method of putting pin in first then installing slide won't work !! Slide will not clear pin on the inside rail, much tighter tolerances. 150 rounds down range all is good! Did have firing pin retainer pin start to pop out the top of slide. After range trip cleaned gun removed pin put a drop of thread locker (blue) in the hole put pin back in..Let you know after next range trip how things went...

    Yep...I do the same as sid1...just get it started and flush with the frame before putting the slide on. This works great. On mine it's darn near impossible with the slide and barrel already in position.
