I may be mistaken about this, but I'm pretty sure that S&W stopped pinning the barrels BEFORE CNC machinery was rolled out to the company.
I would have to agree as the non-pinned came out in the early 1980s . I doubt CNC machining had anything to do with Smith eliminating the barrel pin. The elimination of the pin was simply a cost cutting measure.
