Some GI pilots have the capture hole to far forward and the stem that enters the receiver is to long, making it difficult to remove the pilot with the capture pin in place.
Once removed, the spring can be further compressed and the capture pin replaced to make installation easier. Make sure when you remove the capture pin in reassembley that you hold the spring with your fingers so it doesn’t jump forward; this can cause the spring to wind up in a loop behind the bolt and you will really be cussing.
