Striker cover and disconnect safety
Hello everyone, I have a quick question/problem. I was showing off my new SR9 to my friend who happens to have one. He stated he "wanted to show me something" and proceeded to remove my striker cover and the disconnect safety. This actually had me pretty mad, he should have asked first. I am capable of removing it myself. Anyway, I didn't like the huge space that was left there, (more room for debris), so I went to replace the magazine disconnect safety and I noticed he screwed up my SR9. (Well maybe screwed up is a little harsh, but I am ticked.) The hole that allows you to depress the striker plunger is now slightly enlarged!!! He apologized and offered to buy me a new part or give me his. It looks like it is ok, I guess, just slightly enlarged. Do you think this will effect anything?
Also, for those of you who have removed the magazine disconnect safety, did you notice a problem of debris accumulating in the area where it was? Thanks for your time. Frank.
EDIT: Just wanted to update the situation. I was really mad at my friend when I started this thread. When I wasn't as mad, I checked that part more carefully. The hole on the outside of the striker plate is only slightly enlarged. The inside, (which is the important side), has a metal ring. Everything is ok...no harm, no foul. (I'm still making him give me a new part though)
