    I didn't know a small sampling of those three companies represented most of the industry. BTW, colt does not use loctite.

    They could have used Loc-Tite 380 (Black Max Adhesive) but I have never heard of this being done across the board. If the roll pin is difficult to remove all you need is to apply some Kroil, CLP or similar and let it soak in. Then using a correct punch tap it out. It's worked for me over the years.

    PUT DOWN THE HAMMERS PEOPLE!!

    Here's what you do...

    Get a drill press, non-maring support material (wood) and a punch. You may also need a pair of needle nose pliers and a third hand.

    To remove the existing pin:
    Support the lower with the wood, being sure to leave room for the pin to come out. Chuck the punch in the drill press and ease down on the pin. Slowly apply pressure to the pin until it starts to move. When it does, keep the pressure on. You can either push the pin all the way out or stop short and pull it out with pliers.

    To install the new pin:
    Close the jaws of the chuck completely. Lower the chuck down on the pin and apply pressure until it starts to move. Keep pressing the pin in untill it's almost flush. Then, chuck the punch and drive the pin in till it's even on both sides of the lower. You may need an extra hand to hold the pin with the pliers.

    Trust me, it works great!
