Thank you George. I suppose this spring holds the pin in some fashion. I will see about getting the part from the source you suggested, and would appreciate it if you could send instructions on replacing this spring myself if you would. Money is always at a premium during the holidays, and Gunsmiths around here in The Orlando area don't inspire anyone with overwhelming confidence. (and they charge way too much for too little help)
If it is no more difficult than taking a Glock 30 down to itty bitty peices, then I could probably do it myself with instructions. I found an expoded diagram of teh gun and can see how the spring meets the pin. I suppose the pin has a notch.
Thank you in advance. I am at firstname.lastname@example.org
