Most of them stay in place and I can just push the safety detent out of the way with a pick for re-assembly. This one is a pita.
two of mine do -- one don't-- i think their supposed to have a slight crimp on the ends that locks the big end inside the tube.
i am too afraid i'll mess up the tube to try crimping the big end.
speaking of plunger tubes--
i did have one more issue with the plunger tube on the RIA.
the small end plunger was stepped down too far and the small plunger didn't even touch the slide stop.
so i had to file it back a little to get it to work --didn't take much to cut it down--but it took a lot of work to get a hold of that little flea sized bugger!
you know that swenson small parts kit had to have a few ZINGERS in there--LOL hell it only cost $5 for all the pins so they could not afford to toss the bad ones!
