These are easily made and installed. I just did one a week or two back. I can supply a piece of spring steel the correct width, you'll just need to bend it and trim it to length. Or you can send me the knife and I'll fix it.
Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither and will lose both.

When you get this knife apart you will find that the tail pc. is actually carbon fiber or some kind of hard rubber. Those 2 pins work together to keep the tension bar in place. Over time the synthetic material develops slop and the tension bar comes out. I had a small pc. of n/s and used the old tail pc as template and got this back together. Doubtful you can reuse the original tail pc. But maybe Kaleb can work his magic.
