How is a Accu Tek HC380 firing pin replaced?

Remove the slide. Push firing pin forward with 1/16" pin punch & then put a 3/32" pin punch between the back end of the firing pin & the back of the slot in the slide to hold the firing pin forward. Place the end of a small straight tip screwdriver between the right side end of the safety & the interior wall of the slide. Now twist the screwdriver to move the safety out to the left side of the slide. As you do this slowly, be carefull not to let the safety plunger & spring fly away on you. Mine tends to pretty well stay in the hole & not fly out. Once you have the safety out of the slide, carefully remove the 3/32" pin punch holding the firing pin forward to allow removal of the firing pin & spring. Reverse the procedure to reinstall.
