Ok, was cleaning my PF today and noticed a little rust forming on a rear pin, due to carrying on the belt clip.

So, I drove the pin out and got the rust off, oiled it back up and went to install.

The pin hole is now filled.

The pin I removed is directly below the C in Tec on the left dude of the firearm.

Anyone have any tricks to getting this pin back in?

Thanks

Since the three main pins holding the frame in the grip are polymer (so not subject to rust), the other rear pin is the axis pin for the hammer block. By removing the pin, the hammer block (and its spring) are likely now completely non-functional. The only way to "fix" this, will be to remove the frame from the grip and then re-install the hammer block and spring so that you can reinsert the pin (this is in the grip, not the frame) It is fairly tricky to get the hammer block in place with the spring acting properly. Check out the instructions and illustrations of this part in the sticky on maintaining and assembly of the PF-9 for help on this.

Ouch... That's definitely the Hammer Block pin. The one pin you shouldn't have messed with.
You need to remove the Frame from the Grip to get that back in properly.

Check the 'Diassembly and Repair" thread for Step-by-Steps.

Here's also a video: http://www.thektog.org/forum/showthread.php?t=242358

Thanks for the replies guys.

It was actually very easy to get back together. ;)

Now I'm familiar with the inner PF. ;)

Works well when we all play nice. Forums should be that way and this is one of the best.:)

That's a good question.. I've done so much in my life that I would have never done without the help of the internet.

I'm currently studying with some training in a new career I just "took on" and am amazed at the level of info out there.. I study via YouTube. If I would have had this in high school and college, wow.. :)

I think of this daily. I know I don't want to go back to being ignorant.
