    It seems handy for easy disassembly, but do they work loose over a period of time? On me gen4 the longer pin hardly holds the optional grip extensions in place.
    I see that there are stainless pin sets available, do you think they are worthwhile or overkill?

    I think a metal pin would then wear the plastic frame material and you'd probably have the same result. I haven't had problems, but have read others using clear nail polish, blue Loc-Tite, etc. to hold the pin(s) in and that being a decent fix.

    + 1 on the clear nail polish. Re-apply as needed.

    Use the proper tool (punch) to remove the pins as well as the proper procedure. (No hammer, proper direction in/out.)
    Don't remove the pins every day just to fiddle with it.

    Should last a good long long long long long long long time.
