New member here...excellent forum!
I've got a Colt Mustang 380 pocketlite - as I was cleaning it the other day, the ejector pin fell on it's pivot, ending up facing down into the magazine well. For the life of me, I can't get the darn thing back up...its hitting a stop somewhere, preventing it from going back into proper position.
I searched this issue on the threads and only found one mention of it...and of course it only said "don't let this happen" LOL.
Anyone have any insight as to how I can put things right? I did it once about 10 years back, but forgot how I did it.

I appreciate any responses. Have a great day!

Bob

its common after you fix call colt and get a manual They devote 2 pages to this . You will likely only do it once. But should have a manual any way.

Yeah, happened to me ONCE many years ago. It's not something you want to let happen twice. I found the solution in the manual as I recall. This was very pre-Youtube days,:D

Watched a SigP238 tear down, it was close enuff to work for me. I really like this pistol the more i learn about it the more I like it. Parts are a little tough but not if your determined, lots of stuff still out there. Numrich and Jackfirst are good sources. Found an awesome grip maker as well, a gentleman named Mike Poulin out of West Hartford, CT http://home.comcast.net/~mgpsrjr/ is making me these. http://i918.photobucket.com/albums/ad25/stuartdivebum/mustang_diamond_checkered_walnut.jpgI will post up photos as soon as they arrive.
