Default Missing Pin

I just got my 340PD and a small pin is missing from under the grip. It would always fall out when I changed grips and I would find it. I guess the guys at S&W weren't so careful.

What does this pin do? Is it needed? The place where it goes is circled in purple.

Thanks.

It's a lanyard pin so you can attach a lanyard or cord (when using grips with an an exposed backstrap). It's not needed, but S&W will probably send you one if you ask (they did for me). I've lost a few and now I just make my own out of a piece of brass coat hanger (perfect fit).

You could also cut a small drill bit down & use it for that pin.. The factory one is aluminum & is easily lost when changing the grip panels..
Look around were you swapped grips & you "Might" Find it..
Good Luck!!
Nice Airlite Carry Piece..
