Afternoon Boys,
I've been fine tuning my weapon. I watch videos on how other people do it to get me started in the right direction. Some of them do more damage then good tho. I made a quick video of the break down. I just watched some guy scratch the heck out of his weapon and he didn't care. Me,, I care, I like my 995, so I made this.

Click here.

Sounds like I was a lil upset,huh? I gotta learn to settle down a little.

What??? Some new fangled tool? Mine is put together with bolts. Kids today...gotta have all the fancy doodads. Maybe I should move out of the stone are and get a TS. Then I could use the proprietary wrench and be like the cool kids.

Since I do not own a carbine, I am guessing this tool comes with it.

And - I'm not at all surprised that there are people out there that are so stupid that they can't or won't read instructions and have no common sense.

Then they'll actually put up an "instructional" video like the ones Hobbles describes where they demonstrate how stupid they are.
And they probably still wonder what that tool thing is for...

There are some really cool and informative things on the internet!!
And there is a lot of worthless garbage out there too...

All joking aside, I'm seriously considering a 995 ts. I think my "Classics" are cool as hell but they require a box of of tools to get em apart. Breaking down a 995 with a single multi-tool makes me a whole lot of jealous. Speaking of takedown simplicity, does anybody know the reason why the roll pin and the slide notch don't line up on the handguns? And...if I grind it out so that it does, do I void my warranty?

I don't "think" it would void your warranty, but I also "think" that the extra side notch helps to keep the roll pin from coming out under use.

I ground mine out and haven't had any trouble in several thousand rounds.

You need to put that video on YouTube.

This. And also, on my C9, the slide must be back that little additional amount. Were I to modify the hole, the slide would not
be far enough back.

actually Jason the tool comes with the pistols too... it has a screwdriver blade that you use to adjust the rear sight... and George, the tool has a hex slot that takes the nuts off of the classic carbine so it is useful there too.... very handy little tool for sure

Really Walt? I don't remember that tool coming with my JHP...
But, it's been a while - and with my "dementia" the CRS syndrome is really elevated... ;)

I did put that Mahan sight on my JHP not too long after I got it.
I DO have the tools to adjust that baby - but haven't had to use them very often!!

I doubt the roll pin would ever back out anyway. The only time that notch is over the pin is when the slide is fully back. That said, grinding that slot wider was one of the second things I did to my C9. No issues so far. Use the correct roll pin punch to remove the pin and it should stay really tight for a long time. Once the end of the roll pin end gets peened out from using the wrong kind of punch (like a nail) it widens the hole and VIOLA! loose pin. Ideal would be to use a new roll pin each every time the pin was removed.
