    I think I have the infamous "frame bulge" where the take down pin is. What do you do to fix this? I can't seem to search on here for an answer, but recall seeing it discussed.

  2. First...Drop the mag.... UNLOAD gun... make sure gun is empty. Check again!

    With the gun assembled (and unloaded) and the pin installed, warm that area of the grip with a hair dryer, then re-form the grip at that spot.

    Slow and easy. Use your fingers to apply the pressure.

    In the future, you can use finger pressure on the grip while taking the pin out to prevent this in the future.
