Loving my new Mete SFX - just one issue. I want to attach the included flared magazine well, but none of the screws in the mini-gun parts kit seem to fit. I count: 1 smooth/headed plastic pin, 2 screws longer/narrower (clearly too small diameter), 1 screw shorter/wider (will not thread through mag well, but drops free into frame hole). Has anyone else come across this issue, have any suggestions, etc?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Sounds like you didn't get the right screw. It should be a flat "bugle" head screw that takes the T10 torx bit. Bang your little gun / bit driver on the table really good as sometimes the parts get jammed up in there. Did you get your gun at a local dealer? Sometimes they rob parts to make some other customer happy. Not sure what the plastic pin is - I did not get one with my SFT kit but I did get two of the larger screws.

i did not get any sort of plastic pin either. i am thinking one of 2 things.

the plastic pin might be for when someone needs to change out the trigger, and that pin is inserted thru the trigger to hold it in place, until the metal pin is inserted?

or, he's talking about the orange safety "pin" the keeps the slide partially open to indicate an empty barrel..????

Problem solved! Mine evidently came with the screw in question having the mating thread insert nearly seized on :) (this was was appeared to be the unthreaded plastic pin). Had to use a clamp to separate the two, but then able to insert and assemble successfully. Thanks to all for the help and welcome.
