Default Bubba calling.......

I was changing the rear sight on my M&P semi auto .40 today and lost the rod or pin that's in the spring that comes out when fumble fingers misses it all on disassembly. I've been looking at schematics on Brownells and Numrich, I see the part, but none offered or available. Where should I look next ?

Thanks for any help.

Steve who should have known better

I started to say
Bubba I recommend you look next in the carpet and all around the area you were working in.

But I will say:
If you don't find the part check Midway USA, and Jack First gun parts. Apex makes a striker block if that is the part. Good luck.

If your talking about the striker safety spring, under the rear sight, the only other thing under the sight besides the spring is the Striker Block Spacer, little disc with a nub in the center to hold onto the spring. There are some listed on Ebay listed under, S&W M&P 1.0 2.0 Striker Safety Plunger Plastic SPACER Full Size Compact Shield.

Give S&W a call and see if they will sell you a replacement.

Thanks very much. I was working on it in a small plane hanger, concrete floor, all sorts of tools around, pickup truck, JD tractor, lots of places for small flying parts to hide. I did some looking, after being told there was some sort of rod in there with the spring. A schematic on Brownells showed that, but a youtube ( that I should have watched, of course ) didn't show that little part. The little disc shown on the youtube had the nub to hold the spring, but the one on mine is flat both sides. I'll contact S&W and check eBay, too. Thanks for the help.

If you pay for transport I will send my Wife over. I look for a day for something, swearing up and down. She walks out to the garage and says "Oh this thing"?

Looks like I was mistaken about the rod piece, it's just the spring, as mckenney stated. I must have not had the correct reading glasses in place.

Again, thanks for the help.

How many different pairs of reading glasses do you need?

Just kidding. I know the problem, and itís not getting any better. Good luck getting your gun back together.

I misspoke slightly. Some early guns that I worked on only had a flat metal disc on top of the spring, no nub & definitely no rod.
Order of installation: Striker safety, spring, disc/spacer (nub/no nub) and then rear sight.
