I just purchased my first 9m.. New to hand guns but when you go to disassembly after locking the safety and exposing the retainer pin the alignment is slightly off. can't punch out the pin since it is not centered in the slot...it appear that when the safety is locked the cutout is just off enough that the retainer pin won't come out.. it this a defect or am I doing something wrong. any help would be appraisated

I have the same problem with my C9.
All you need to do is give it a little push on the slide to move it forward & put the punch in place. Once you have it set you can let go of the slide slowly & then hit the punch with a hammer. The punch will keep the slide in the correct place & you can remove the pin without trouble.
Do the same thing when putting the pin back in. Just use the punch to line it up, push the pin in a little & tap it with the hammer, pull the punch out & use it to send the pin in the rest of the way.

I did a little tweaking on the safety lever on mine and now the slot lines up with the pin!
