My rolll pin that engages the notch in the take down lever on my M&Pc 40 is walking a bit under recoil. I'd like to try installing a new roll pin. Does it matter from which side of the frame you knock the old one out? And yes, I have a roll pin punch. Thanks.

After about 100 rounds or so my locking block coil pin backs out to this point and stops. But that's further out than I'd like it to be. This is a brand new pin. The original pin did exactly the same thing. Any tips on preventing this? Thanks.

Kraigster414 - That's the way it's suppose to be. See the half-moon notch on the takedown lever? The roll pin acts as a stop for it.



You're good to go.


I don't believe it's supposed to be that far out. It was not when I got it new, unfired (nor is out that far in my 9c). The pin only has to be out a little to engage the notch in the take-down lever plus when it's extended too far out, you risk snagging the gun on the inside of your holster or on your clothing. I hope that's not the way it's supposed to be. :?

The exploded diagram I downloaded from Brownells shows that pin being removed from right to left, the same direction your photo shows it walking. And yeah, I also don't think it should walk out this much. I haven't experienced this...yet.


My gun is on its way back to S&W to address the "restless pin syndrome," aka: RPS




If you are having problems with your locking block coil pin walking, Dan Burwell suggested this but makes no guarantees:



"You could try “denting” the pin by laying it on a solid surface putting a regular screw driver on it and smacking the screw driver with a hammer. This will make the pin kind of oblong and should tighten it up a good bit. Just don’t go to wild on it or you won’t get it back in..." Position the screwdriver about 1/8 inch from the end of the pin.
