    You can peen the end a bit but don't mess with the link surfaces. I keep lots of little stuff like this as spare parts. Whenever I make an order from Brownell's I alwas include a handful of little stuff like grip bushings and various pins...

    You need to stake that pin. Use a punch and stake it slightly on the ends to where it won't come out.
