Ejector pin




Started cleaning my new Compact after two hundred rounds
and the ejector pin was broken . I had noticed on initial cleaning
that the pin was two small for the hole , kept sliding in and out.
Ordered a new pin to install , are the pins a standard size ?
Hope the durn hole is not drilled too large.

Thanks for help

Love the gun

Bill

The pin is broken into, Two pieces? as Cappi stated it should be 1/16th
if it fits loose just put some Blue LOC TITE on it just one small drop, that should hold it. let it set for a few hours. if you ever need to get it out, just heat it a little, and drive it out.....
