Picked up a used P-40 from the local House of Hock the other day. The first time I stripped it, a spring shaped like a rounded V, with one arm shorter than the other popped out. It appears to be what holds the disassembly pin in place. I'm having some trouble figuring just how it goes back in.

can you take a pic of it? Plus take a pick of your gun without the slide on from the top. Then we will be able to know what your talking about. Pictures are worth a thousand words when it comes to figuring out what happened. Congrats on the p40. There are not many parts in the gun.

Yes, that sounds like the assembly pin retention spring. It fits into a slotted area on the aluminum frame, and you will likely have to remove the frame from the polymer grip to replace the spring properly. An excellent guide to disassembly and reassembly of the P11 (same as the P40) can be found at the Northwood Components web site. It is for installing the the Northwood aluminum trigger, but provides excellent guidance on how to take the frame out, how to put the spring in, and so forth. It is in PDF format, and can be downloaded (and even printed out) to help you.

How about it Mods/Admins? Can we get this pinned as a Sticky? I can't count the times we've sent users to that site.

Aha! That would be why I haven't been able to get it sorted. (And might explain how the gun ended up at the House Of Hock to begin with... :tinfoil: )
