Removing Takedown Pin For SR9C For Cleaning

I have seen the easy way to breakdown the SR9C for cleaning. It seems to be a little harder to remove the takedown pin for a more thorough cleaning. I posted a video on anogther thread that I received no answer to. My question is is there or is there not a spring that one has to deal with to remove the takedown pin?

The take down pin is easy to take out and it's what you have to do to get the slide off, even for basic cleaning, it's the big one you push out from the right side and remove from the left side. Are you talking about some other pin?

In most cases, you do not need to go any further with disassembly than removing the take down pin, removing the slide, the removing the guide rod and barrel.

The only other thing you'd want to do is remove the striker to clean it and the striker channel. That involves removing the striker plate, but that's pretty easy too.

Thumbs up

Tks 89 for the forehead smack to bring me back to reality. What I meant to say is removing the striker pin. The video that I posted under "newbie from FL" showed a spring in the way of removing the striker pin. Before I would attempt to remove the striker pin I would want to make sure that this spring wouldn't get lost in the process and just let me know how hard it is to remove the striker pin?.
Tks, Steve

Removing the striker plate is easy, before you do that, push down on the striker block, that's the round piece under the slide, just in front of the mag disconnect. You should then be able to push the striker forward a little.



Here's a pic, it's the larger black round piece, near that "k" stamped in the slide. Just push that down and you can move the striker forward. After that, push in the small pin in the back of the striker plate and push the striker plate off. The striker can then be pulled out from the back. The striker plate pin is spring loaded, but the spring stays put, it won't fly out. When you're ready to reinstall it, just press the spring back in while sliding the striker plate back on. It's actually easier than it sounds.

The only spring that can pop out is for the mag disconnect, but I removed mine because I don't like mag disconnects. You'll notice that mine looks a little different because of that. You may have to push down slightly on the disconnect to get the striker out, then the mag disconnect will come out too, and that part has a spring that I think be able to pop out if you're not careful. That's the only one though. It's your choice if you want to keep the mag disconnect or take the opportunity to remove it for good.
