Question Another problem... Loose pin

Well well, the Pin that appears to retain the trigger keeps backing out.. I have to continuously tap it back in with a hammer. The pin I am talking about is located directly above the trigger, and it protrudes out from the other side of the receiver (Texas ERTD receiver) .

It appears there isn't anything to hold this pin securely in place, any ideas?

sounds like your retaining plate or wire is either not installed or installed incorrectly.

do this

Unload the firearm,
pop the dust cover off
Remove the recoil spring, bolt carrier and bolt
Look down into the receiver where your Trigger group, hammer and Hammer spring are located and you should see a small wire type clip or a retaining plate that holds the axis pins in.

it should be riding in the grove on the axis pin if not reinstall it so that it is, or get some small hitch pins

Ah. I see. What hitch pins are you referring to?

The retaining wire is all bent up.. doesn't look right IMO. EIther it's just me, or the QC department over at IOI really sucks. Well.. the firing pin was bad in it to begin with, so maybe it's just IOI.

The retainer plate is the way to go. Fit and forget. Very cheap fix too.

i agree when i first started using the wire's (I was using the plates lol) i used to get so mad trying to get them installed. i would bend them all to hell trying to get them in then i found a picture that has been posted here before of the differnt types of wires and how they are installed. I printed it out and posted it above my work bench and has been smooth sailing since!

i can change them out fairly quick now with a large flathead screw driver!

Take your pivot pins down the hardware store with you to measure. I use a 3/16" hitch pin (not a hairpin type)
