    I installed a NY1 and a 3.5 connector on my G17 put it all back together and found the slide is binding. I started taking it about to see what the deal is and found the trigger pin is stuck solid in the frame. Anyone else run into this? how to resolve?

    Thanks

    As you are pushing on the pin, are you 'jiggling' the slide catch lever? If not, you need too, as it is probably in the groove on the pin (as it should be) and is thus keeping the pin in place.

    With your right hand wrap two fingers around the slide stop lever while pushing on the pin with your left hand. Push the pin left to right. Wiggle the slide lock lever while applying pressure against the pin and it will release. NO HAMMERS ALLOWED!

    Thanks for the assistance, I removed the pin after putting the slide back on, cycling it and pulling the trigger. removed the slide, locking block and the trigger pin behaved and came right out...Thanks again
