    I have a P345 45acp and love it. It has become my CCW. I noticed the last few times at the range that the mag catch (I think it is) works itself out of the frame. It never comes out far enough to hang up the mag and it snaps right back in. I think it is the mag catch pin. It is located on the right side of the frame just behind the serial number plate. It has a flat head and pops into and threw the frame. What could be making this pop out of the detente and how can I stop it? There has only been around 200 rounds fired from the gun and it shows no ware at all. Any ideas?
    Thanks for the input.

    Are you referring to the "takedown pin"

    No. I think it might be the hammer pivot pin.

    It is the flat head in front of and to the left of the serial number plate. I think it might be the hammer pivot pin.
