    It back in? I just replaced the connector and slide and mag release for extended ones and I can not get the top pin back in. FWIW, I am feeling a bit silly for I have several Glocks, made upgrades like the ones mentioned and have not had this problem. It is a new G17OD as if new should mean anything other than being tight, which I expected. I do not know why this pin won't go back. There is nothing in the hole BTW, and it will go all but appearing out the left side. Any tricks to getting it back in would be greatful. I guess I might need a bigger hammer!

    You are hitting the slide stop spring with the top pin!
    Remove the trigger pin and slide stop. Insert the locking block pin FIRST
    Install the slide stop and then install the trigger pin.

    Thanks, I seem to have had a senior moment. All fine now. FWIW the 3.5 connector I put in this new G17OD has really made this trigger very nice. All my other Glocks have improved but for some reason this one seems better than previous guns with the same mods. I don't know, maybe just me. I did notice the Lone Wolf connector was plated in a more polished coat. Who knows. Thanks again.
