Default Lost pistol parts

I got this cool pistol. One I've wanted for a very long time. Took it apart to see if the parts were matching which they were. Problem is while assembly, I lost a retainer pin. Sucks that 115 year old pistol stays intact until I get it.
Good news is the seller has period correct parts and was very reasonable at 20 shipped.
Sorry just a whine. Thanks for the vent.
I have spent about 4 hours looking for the stupid part. I did find, two ar buffer spring detents and screws. About 10 new assorted primers. But no sign of that dam pin.

Get one of these magnetic pick up tools, it's a lifesaver when I drop small parts on the shop floor.

It's also good for picking up shotgun hulls and steel cases at the range.

I don't think so. I even went through two five gallon buckets of brass. Piece by piece thinking it may have flown into my brass bucket.

I thought about that after the fact .
But I did find two pins and springs from a AR that went flying. Still haven't found a Glock mag base plate. Guess it's hanging out with my luger part and missing socks?

Get up in the night to take a pee - you'll step on it barefooted.

Best I can think of is that Numrich would have the part.

I am still missing my bolt/firing pin for an NDM 86 - how the hell does one lose something that big - ?

Did you check your trash receptacles too? That is the only way I can figure how it left my house.....

Yes checked that. Also dumped 10 gallons of brass thinking it might have gone in my surplus brass bucket

Get one of those big magnets from harbor freight. Start running it along the ground where you worked on the disassembly
