Backstrap removal for all P Series pistols - Ensure the pistol is CLEAR and decocked (see page 3) and the magazine is removed. Dry firing the pistol will relieve any tension on the hammer spring prior to removal of the grip panel. With an appropriate metal punch, carefully tap out the lanyard loop roll pin (Figure 7).

Extract the pin once it is protruding from the frame. When the pin is removed, the grip panel can be slid downward off the frame (Figure 8). Take care that the hammer strut and hammer spring do not fall out of the frame and become lost or damaged.

Backstrap installation for all P Series pistols - Ensure the hammer strut and hammer spring are properly positioned on the back of the frame (Figure 9). Place the replacement grip panel on the back of the frame, approximately 1 inch (2.54cm) lower than its assembled position (Figure 10), and push the grip panel up onto the grip rails.

Continue pushing the grip panel upward on the frame. As the grip panel slides upward onto the grip rails, the hammer spring will compress slightly creating resistance. Continue to slide the grip panel upward until it fits flush and there is no gap between the top of the grip panel and frame.

At this point, the pin holes on the grip panel and the frame will line up. Carefully reinsert the pin and push it through the grip panel and frame using finger pressure (Figure 11).

With the pin properly aligned in the grip panel and the frame, carefully tap the pin until it is fully seated and centered in the frame (Figure 12).
