Need help with backstrap change P09
« on: November 11, 2017, 11:44:50 PM »
Hey Folks. First time owner of a new P09 Urban Grey. Love this gun! How the heck do I change the backstrap on this one? The YouTube tutorials have a lanyard loop and this one is flush. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Find a screw that's just smaller than the plug, get a piece of wood or use your bench top and screw the screw in so it's sticking out at least a eighth of an inch or a little more .using that screw head, set the hammer spring plug on the screw head and push down to relieve the pressure  on the PIN then you can push out the pin.

Lanyard ring or not same procedure. The ring makes it a little easier, you have something extended to push against.
Use a punch pin or anything smaller than the hole to push out the retaining pin, assembly is the reverse.
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

Have the hammer down against the back of the slide, to take the pressure off the hammer spring and the plug, that makes it easier to push the plug upwards into the frame.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
