    Two different styles of screws that I've seen. Pretty sure there was a third style with a straight pin.

    If the gun has a V shaped groove in the yoke, then it takes the V shaped spring loaded screw.
    Happiness is a couple of 38's and a bucket of ammo.

    It's a sad state when a gun company can't make a quality product.

    Years ago (1940's) Ford Motor Co. was making one B-24 flying fortress every 63 min. and every one flew.
    They served in three theaters of war.

    And now our manufacturing plants can not make a revolver that will stay together.

    Well, on the other hand, imagine that this was someones' self-defense weapon, and after one cylinder fired they had to reload - And the cylinder fell out like that. There're REASONS we ask for perfection, another reason being that if the gun blows up in our face it's going to HURT. Neither of those two possible outcomes is acceptable to any of us, I suspect?

    Exactly! Self-defense firearms manufacturers are producing products that must be 100% reliable due to the stakes being so high.

    When Sig knowingly released a pistol that they knew had the potential to kill or wound the police officers and soldiers that accidentally dropped it, I lost any respect I had for that company.

    Yes, I recognize that spring loaded screw from the first gun. I had no idea until now it was spring loaded though. The second gun is already on its way to Davidson's.

    My new S&W M&P40c arrived today and so far, appears to be perfect. This thread and my previous S&W purchase had me nervous.

    That's good, I haven't heard all that much bad about their semi-auto's.
