Yes, the retaining pin hole was drilled too close to the top of the housing itself. Removing the housing for detailed stripping/cleaning caused it to break.

My STI Trojan has a polyment MSH. They say that it is self lubricating. It's checkered surface does give a good grip.

Wonder if that is really true about the lubrication, or just a way to add 8 bucks profit to the gun?

Ok, I am not the internet police but I do have a sense of decency. I will never call a President of the United States, whether I voted for him or not, like him or not, insulting childish names. This is the greatest country this planet has yet produced, with the best political system yet. We live with a majority rule and an orderly transition of powers. We have fought to keep it that way. It may have weaknesses, after all it is made up of flawed human beings like all of us, but it has survived. My oath to this country still means something to me, to protect it like I protect my family and my friends. Whichever party, whomever the President, whether I like or dislike the policies. I have the next election to have my voice heard, as an adult.

Sarge - he's an Ineligible Usurper that was installed in the oval office by a totally corrupt bunch of Leftist/Socialist/DemoRats and RINOs that's Hell-Bent on Destroying Your Country!

And sadly, No-one in Uniform seems to give a damn that he's an Ineligible Criminal.

Sorry for the off topic post - but it needed to be said.

VERY well said Wild Bill ! ! IMHO, IF you voted for Obummer in 2008 to prove that you're not a racist, you need to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove that you're NOT AN IDIOT..............
