AR10 dustcover: what happened here?

OK, I have not been able in my mind to really figure this one out, maybe you can help me.
A coiple years ago I bought a new SW M&P10 rifle. After shootin a few rounds I noticed the dust cover pin had walked forward and the dust cover nearly fallen off.
After looking at some pics and my rifle, it appeared that the pin was too short. But when I contacted S&W they stated that there was only one part # and one length of pin, same as an ar15.
SO I bought a captive pin/Strike Ind. cover and forgot about it. But from time to time I wonder if they were right, then my rifle must be missing something at the rear of the handguard which would have butted up against the front of the pin. I just don't think this is the case. What say ye?
