Got my new P3AT...looking forward to breaking it in. I just cleaned it and had problems getting the assembly pin out. I used a cartridge like in the manual but it scratched the finish. Anyone have suggestions on using something else to get it off?Also it was a little tricky putting back on..is there a specific process for this?

I use a small flat screwdriver to get it started then my fingernail. I am very careful and have not scratched it. Going back together I curse alot and that seems to help.

And kind of "Wiggle" it out while applying increasing pressure.

Not just pry it out in one fell swoop (POP)!

Wiggling gives the retainer spring a chance to work it's way up out of the groove in the pin.

If you just pry it out all at once, you may spring the grip housing away from the frame enough for the spring to slip out of it's pocket and bulge out the grip.

BTW: The brass case probably did not really scratch your gun. What you see is brass rub-off on the gun.

Some Hoppes #9 or copper solvent bore cleaner will clean it right off.
