Some of the posts in here make it sound like a real problem if the assembly pin spring slips out of its "notch" in the frame and gets caught between the frame and grip. The disassembly instructions instruct and depict two fingers pressing down on the grip while prying the assembly pin free with a cartridge case. It's easy to see how the "drag" from the assembly pin would tend to bow the grip away from the frame allowing the assembly pin spring to drop into the space between the frame and grip. This is clearly another Kel-Tec design problem. I didn't know this was a problem until I saw it mentioned in this forum. It hasn't happened to me yet but someone in here said it took them about an hour to get the spring back into place. Has this happened to a lot of P3AT owners? Does anyone have any good suggestion about getting it back in place? If it were easy to separate the frame from the grip it looks like it would be a piece of cake but I imagine it takes special tools to separate the frame from the grip. How about it? Anyone have a simple way to get the spring back into place. I know that someone suggested using rubber-jawed vise grips to clamp the grip to the frame so that there's no space for the spring to drop free but really, should this be necessary for simple disassembly of a gun? Anyway, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.
