Put another 60 rds(for a total of about 600) through Baby today,no problems whatsoever,as a matter of fact the girls been absolutly flawless for the last 400 rds or so.Very pleased with its reliability.The only issue I have is that no matter how careful I am the takedown pin spring allways pops out of place when I break it down to clean it.Took me well over an hour to get that sucker back into the frame.To avoid "THE BULGE". Previously Jocko was nice enough to suggest the rubber vice grip to hold it all together before breakdown,may have to get one. Was getting very frustrated today.At any rate got her back together,back into my waistband for another month or so_Or at least until I have the burning need to take her out and throw some lead down range. Really do enjoy shooting this little cannon..

Just curious on how are you removing the pin. ?

the way I do;
use fingernail to lift pin to get a gap.
force rim of round under head with base flat against slide, just a little foward of exactly above pin.
use thumb to push barrel/slide back just a little
then push bullet end of round away from pin, while forcing base into pin.
It gives me a very positive pop out

Maybe I've just been lucky :-?

Hi JFB.
Yours was made before mine.  "HUExx".
I have no trouble with grip, taken the pin out.
I made a wooden mag to hold the slide back.

After blocking the slide open with a piece of plastic,I press down with two fingers on either side of pin,use a small screwdiver to get it started then pop it out with the rim of a spent round.Still that ornery spring pops out..Ah well smalll price to pay.Overall great little gun.

Some good ideas on holding the slide open while dissassembling. I have been using the old fashion method of just holding the slide open with my hand the way I do on my larger pistols. Live and learn, die and forget it all.
