    One question for P230 owners: The barrel on my p230 is locked in place with a DOUBLE pin (a smaller pin inside a larger pin). I have both size pin punches. Should I remove the smaller pin FIRST, or remove them both at the same time??? Thank you in advance, for any advise to my problem.
    Have a great day... T

    Welcome to FTF. Why are you trying to remove the barrel?

    To answer your question:

    Hello to Mountainman13,
    Had to remove a "step" between the frame ramp and barrel ramp; Hollow Points kept "hanging up". The barrel ramp was a "tad" higher than the frame portion of the ramp. (A gentleman on another Forum explained how he did it. - I just followed his advise and it turned out perfect.)
    One question to you or anyone: Do you happen to know the different sizes of roll pin punches I would need, to completely dis-assemble my P230?
    Thank you for any help in this matter... This is a great Forum !!!, T

    Thank you Mountainman13,
    I will order them today... Took the reworked gun to the range yesterday... Absolutely Fantastic... Shot 4 different types of ammo... No problems, "what-so- ever"... It's a different gun, all together... Very, very happy, the way it turned out !!!
    Have a great day... T
