    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.

    but I know Sig warns you NOT to let that happen or you send it to the factory

    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

    You tube worked

    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. [​IMG]I will post up photos as soon as they arrive.
