The pin, in the frame behind the trigger, on my 2nd generation HS2000 will begin to move or "walk out" after about 50-100 rounds fired. I just push it back in with a punch. Does anyone have a long term fix for this problem.

Thanks.

one-eye

So do you think the pin has worn down too small? Or was it undersized from the factory. I bought the gun used BTW.

Heard of this happening to the 357Sig that Shooting Times tested 5000 rounds thru. Author just gave the pin a whack with a hammer to flatten it out a bit and punched it back in. Did not have any further trouble with the pin wanting to back out. It to was happening after about 50-100 rounds once the frame had heated up. After sending it back to SA to check, they noticed that the extractor had broke off, as it was to long to begin with, but never had any problems during their testing. SA said the recoil spring was a little softer but still within accectable limits. Nice to know even with a broken extractor and softer springs, it never failed.

There may be nothing worn with the pin since it is just a pin and not a moving mechanism. Maybe consider loctite or silicone glue?
If you do order more parts, maybe order a few extra? Good for spares and you may end up with one that fits tighter than the rest.
Good luck, shoot safe. :)

I agree with the all knowing EYE, replace it! Or you can be cheap like me and put one drop of Loctite red on one end,
mine hasn't moved since i did that almost 4 months ago :wink:

If you pound a little flat spot on it and punch it back into the frame, the inside of the hole will be damaged. A new pin or a drop of Loctite is pennies compared to the possible damage you can do. :shock:

I put some Locktite blue on it today. Glad to hear it's not just me. Even a pointed pin punch in the middle of the pin might bulge it enough to stop it but not ready to mangle it yet.

maybe the original owner disassembled his gun too many times causing the hole in the receiver to wear?

one reason why I dont do a full disassembly unless necessary, is because it can cause parts to become loose over time.

If you ever watch gun videos by "SOOTCH" on Youtube, you will notice how easily his pins, parts fall out during disassembly because he takes them apart a lot, pins need some tension to keep them from drifting out during use.
