    Cant get the damn disassembly pin back in!

    Ive been trying for 20-30 minutes to get this pin back in my new Taurus TCP .. WTF? My old Pro millenium had the same pin but it wasnt this hard to get back in. That little spring seems to be covering up 1/4 of the hole?? Any tips? Im about 5 minutes from taking the pin to the bench grinder and giving it a nice big chamfer.

    It was tricky my first time trying to get it back in there as well. Best thing I can offer is to angle the pin slightly upward so it's pointing towards the slide so that the one edge can catch the top of the retention spring.

    the pin is a real pain to put back in.. it's really odd that when I finally get it to go in, I can't figure out exactly what I did different..

    I put a small chamfer on the pin also. I also do machine work and there are some rough areas. I think there should have been somewhat of a bevel on the pin to start with

    I put mine in wrong once. When I tried to fix it I popped the spring out and it flew across the room. I almost didn't find it in my carpet. Fortunately, it's get easy to take out & put back in over time.

    The disassembly/re-assembly procedure is my number ONE complaint about Taurus!

    Yep just tilt the pin downward (raising the tip upward a bit), and then insert it pushing the spring DOWN and it should go right in.
    always be sure that the pin is on top of the spring or you got big problem!

    actually I like the system that Beretta uses on its PX4, the pin pulls out and locks into a groove, so the pin is out of the way of the frame but still retained in the slide, so no need to remove it at all.
    of course if needed you can with a bit of force take it completely out, but really disassembly/reassembly is a breeze.
    leave it to them crazy Italians to think of something this smart and easy!

    Ain't that da truth!!! No matter how many times I put the stupid pin back, I couldn't remember how I did it the last time... And of course my daughter can just "pop" the pin back in in less time than it took me to type this. Grrrrrr.....

    Put the pin part way in...before you put the slide on.
    You may have to adjust it a bit.

    Or better..leave in partially in. I think Olfarhors or Greenwolf told me that. It was a while bavk.
