Phantom Trigger Pin issue

MCB Vets/Phantom Gods:

Again, I come with a simple Phantom question that I can't figure out (or resolve via the "search" function on here :P ). Please show me the way...

I installed the Rocker trigger into my phantom, but have been having alot of trouble trying to re-install the trigger pivot pin (see pic). It's a larger-gauge punch pin with a slightly wider head (I'm guessing for retention). I can only get the pin ~90% in using a standard punch tool and a hammer, but I can't get it in and flush to save my life. The head of the pin (and some of the frame around the pin) have become marred from multiple hard strikes with the tool. I bought a second pin off CCI and tried putting that one in and got the same results. Anybody have this issue and know a trick/work-around?

If you have a bench vice, that's the easiest way to go. Clamp down on the body over the pin, and it should slide right in when you tighten down.

Careful~! Don't be dumb like I was and forcibly put the pin in the wrong way (like I did) only to realize later that it's not identical on both sides.....

as havoc mentioned, one end is larger than the other.

So, I should try to shape the wide portion of the pin before punching into the Phantom? Just want to make sure I understand before I attempt.

I'm punching the pin in with the narrow end leading in and with the "wide" portion as the head.

Good to know this as I have never messed with trying to R&R the trigger so IF I ever have to this information is vital.
