if it's an ACS bolt, this is what i did.

i heard about this problem and decided to do somehting before i lost the pin.

take the pin, and tap the end that goes into the bolt. this flares out the edges and fits it to the bolt. repeat if needed.

you can also make a new pin out of a dowel rod:
1.) cut it to desired length
2.) sand bottom until it fits into the bolt (tightly)

hope this helps!

thanks! i do have the ACS bolt, but the problem is that the screw in the back that you tighten has loc-tite on it and i cant get it hot enough to melt:(

I would buy a new pin. Sundragon has some good ones. I would also check to make sure that your e-trigger frame screws are both snug. if the back one is loose it has a tendency to slope the back of the bolt downward while firing causing it to hit the back of the gun springing the pin loose. I bought one from Sundragon and it has not escaped yet, much better quality than the stock pin.:)

When will this get a sticky...?

Here's the original post:

Here's a link to a replacement cocking pin:
http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/...47/2940653.htm (http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/item/3373147/2940653.htm)
I've posted a step-by-step for cocking pin set screw tension so many times I can't count. You'd think they'd sticky one of them.
Oh well, after you get a new cocking pin try this:
There is a set screw at the rear of the bolt that helps hold the pin in place. This screw rests against a small spring and ball bearing. The further in the screw is turned, the more spring tension there is against the ball bearing that rests in the small dished out area at the bottom of the pin.
To adjust this screw you will have to heat it up and the metal insert inside the delrin(plastic) ACS bolt that the screw is threaded into. This is because there is thread lock on it. I completely disassembled my bolt to get at the metal center, then heated it with a small torch. You can use a hair dryer or heat gun. When the loc-tite is warm enough you should be able to remove the screw. Let all parts cool and clean off any loc-tite. Reassemble the pieces (ball bearing in first, then spring, lastly screw) and put loc-tite or women's nail polish on the screw threads. I like polish because it holds but can be broken without heat and the wife always has some around. Insert the cocking pin and turn in the screw about a half a turn at a time; all the while removing and re-inserting the pin after each turn. When you get the screw turned in so tight that removing the pin isn't possible, back it off about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn so it is removeable but there is enough tension it won't fly out.
You should be good to go. One other issue some people have noticed is that the slot in the body that the cocking pin moves back and forth in may not be long enough. This can bend the pin or add to the flying out problem. I carefully took a small rat-tail file and lengthened the slot approximately 3/16 of an inch at each end.
If it happens again in the middle of a game, carry an allen wrench in your pocket small enough to fit down in the bolt and use that for a temporary cocking pin.
Good luck.

I do not think that the rear cocking bolt will work for your pilot.:(

It will work fine. It'll just stick out the back a little bit.
