    Default Flap handle pin

    I was having a heck of a time getting the pin into the silver flap trigger. Tapping with a hammer wasn't working too well. Then I had an idea, use a rivet squeezer with the bottom die removed so the pin could protrude into the hole.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure that it is supposed to be that tight...

    The manual make specific mention of the hole orientation...that leads me to believe the pin is not supposed to rotate. I hit the crap out of it and couldn't get it thru. The rivet squeezer took almost no force to push it thru. Not sure what to tell you except the pin doesn't move and the flap handle is assembled.
