Not even 1/4", a 1/16" will do fine. I see a lot of people have trouble doing this with only two hands... and Kel-Tec doesn't describe the proper hold to use to perform this maneuver... so I'll post a picture.Flyer said:Beretta,
You don't need to retract the slide all the way to take out the pin, though. Just push the front of the slide backwards enough to take tension off the pin, about a quarter-inch. Then it'll pull right out!
