A while back I bought a used LCP with a LaserLyte laser installed on the right hand side of the pistol. I like the little gun and the laser (when it worked ) was fun but not something I'd rely on. OK, here's the question: The other day the head of the takedown pin (to separate the grip and slide) broke off ... right behind the little spring that holds it in place! So now I have the body of the pin stuck in the gun not allowing me to get it out and disassemble the gun for complete cleaning. I tried holding the spring down with a pick and shaking the broken piece out -- no luck. Had my daughter smack the gun with a small mallet while I pushed the spring down -- no luck. Hmmm, what to do? The laser covers the opposite side of the pistol and (of course) one of the allen screws that hold it in is stripped so I can't take it off. I want to know if the hole the takedown pin goes through goes all the way to the other side, so that if I take the laser off, will I be able to knock the broken part out with a punch? The laser stopped working so if I have to mess it up, no problem. But if the hole doesn't go all the way through, that won't help me anyway. So, can anyone with an LCP with the R/H side clear tell me if the takedown pin hole is open on that side? I might need to resort to drilling a small hole () and knocking the broken pin out with a very small punch. Don't want to do that, but it may be my only choice. Thanks for any information!
