Default Replacing the C9 takedown pin with a screw

Has anyone seen the YouTube video of the guy replacing the takedown pin on the C9 with a screw? Can anyone tell me what size, length etc of a screw was used?

Don't think I would recommend doing this personally...most likely would void the warranty imo, but don't quote me on that. If the take down pin is to much of a hassle, buy a hockey puck.. drill a half inch hole in center...set gun on hockey puck with pin being over the hole and punch pin out using a pin punch..hole in the hockey puck should catch the pin...its what I use.. works perfectly.

I’ve see it too. Thing is you still need a tool to take the slide off. But at least you don’t have to hammer the damn thing off.

The hockey puck is a great idea. To disassemble, clean, and assemble my guns; I used a wooden board 3/4 x 14 x 14 with a 1/2" hole drilled near the edge to pass the pin. Works great for me.

Many many guns are held together with roll pins or solid interference fit pins, including many very expensive and cool guns. It's a good, solid, and cheap way to hold things together. Cars, airplanes, and many things are full of them. I'm not saying there aren't better ways just saying don't get to bent out shape about it or there are going to be many cool guns you will pass on.

Seriously, my shop is a mess, and I usually do this, as I can usually find a scrap that does the trick. But if a special frame/pin arrangement comes up, sure: I'll cut something special, just as you do.

If you do it enough the pin can be pushed out by hand with the appropriate sized device yet still be tight enough to prevent it from walking when you shoot. I haven't used a hammer on my C9 in over a year.

How long or hits did it take to be like that?
