Need help with my Glock 22

So I took my New (used) Glock 22 3rd gen out to the range today and it shot decent until about 75 rounds, then one of the pins started to wiggle out. Is there any way to remedy this?

I would first clean both the pin and the holes with alcohol and if that didn't stop it, others have achieved success by putting a light coat of spray paint on the ends of the pin. If you don't know the number of rounds since the RSA was changed, that might be worth a change.

You think simply replacing the pin could stop it? I was planning to replace the spring and guide rod ASAP but wanted to shoot it first. The spring does look abit old and worn out.

Recoil Spring Assembly. I doubt the diameter of a replacement pin would be any different unless somebody makes oversize pins which I've never seen. If you have other Glocks, you might compare the diameter with a caliper to see if it is undersized.

It mighy not have been seated correctly. Make sure there is an equal amout of space from the end of the pin to the outside of the frame. You can use a punch and tap gently.

I wonder if a previous owner was obsessive-compulsive about doing a detail strip every other time that G22 was taken to the range. My oldest Glock is a 1997 Gen 2.5 G27. I've observed no pin loosening, but I only detail strip my Glocks semi-annually unless there's some good reason. Even semi-annually is likely overdoing that. (But it is fun to show to those unfamiliar with Glocks.)

I was thinking the same thing.
