    Installing a mag tube plug pin

    Guys,

    The plug pin fell out of my 39A, lost somewhere on the ground, got a new on ordered. Any suggestions on how to attach the new one?

    thanks,

    Tancred

    Mount the plug in a padded vice, get an extra set of hands aka wife or friend.

    Get a small nail or wire that will fit through to line it up.

    Have the helper push down while you put the pin in, tap it gently with a small hammer and drift punch (can be a nail ground flat on the end)

    I guess I thought there was more to it than that. Thanks.

    You might want to glue it in so prepping the area by degreasing ect would be good,this may be necessary if it is loose.

    My 39A made in 66 has a loose pin so far I haven't lost it.

    One other thing before you get to doing it, make sure you clean it well first.

    One tip, putting it in a drill motor and using 000 or 0000 steel wool to polish the outside of the brass tube does wonders for making it slide in and out.
