Anybody have this happen to them I changed the sights on my Glock 22 today.
And after I put it back together.
I racked the slide a few times .
Just doing a few dry fire drills.
And something fell out.mmmmm
I picked it up it was part of the lower pin.
Completely broke .
The lower pin.
I have extra ones and replace it .

Did you disassemble the slide before installing?
It's likely all the tapping and the pin being put under pressure.

That's very odd. It looks aftermarket. What brand?
It's after market I don't remember but it was a stanless pin that I had anodized red a few years ago.
It just snapped at the point where the slide lock sits on it .
It just could be that it was worn out.

It's odd because I don't really shoot this gun that much

Those seem to be the aftermarket anti-walk pins. I build my own "Glocks" and I refuse to use them. I would get the OEM Glock Gen 1-4 stock lower pins. The only lower parts worth upgrading in my opinion is the trigger.

It has a ZEV trigger in it .
And I did replace the pins .
It broke off at the spot that the slide catch sits.
So it could just have been wear on it .
Or just a bad pin.

I keep it happy in it's own box with plenty of mag's.
It was my night stand gun at one point.
