Hey all I was just wondering if anyone on here has used the threaded take down pin they are selling on eBay?? It has good reviews but I always feel like those are staged.. :hmmm:

There's a video on YouTube with a "how to" on those pins.
I believe that threading the right side of the slide will void the warranty.
You might want to call MOM before opting for the threaded pin.

After a closer look it appears that it's simply a 1/16" or metric set screw that would cost $1.50 at a hardware store. It's threaded full length and must cut it's own way in. I wouldn't waste the money. Just take your roll pin to a good hardware store or Fastenall and match up with a long enough set screw.

Yep, what Randy said.

In my opinion, I would not "spring" for it! YMMV!

Maybe someone could explain the point of this part. I've shot the crap out of my C9 and still have to use a punch to drive the pin out. I've heard the little Remington 380 can drop it's take down pin if you hold it sideways while firing it, but the roll pin in my Hi Point doesn't move a smidge.

It's just an ease of takedown thing, I'm assuming. Why beat it with a punch and hammer when you can just use a screwdriver bit? I don't know, I don't have one anymore.

I believe a lot of the C9's had the take down notch on the slide in the wrong position to easily get to the pin to drive it out. Or it was purposely put in that position to ensure the pin never walks out on it's own. :dunno: :thinkin: I used to have to use something to hold the slide back far enough...now I just don't clean the gun.. :whistle: No seriously, I pulled the slide and filed the notch wider so the slide catch held it open far enough.


FWIW...
I also filed and sanded all the parting lines off and re-polished the plastic, rounded out the trigger guard, shorted the trigger so it doesn't pinch my finger when I pull it, and smoothed the return spring channel so it racks easier and is quiet while doing so. I never polished the feed ramp and don't have any problems with it.

But I digress...

:whistle:
