My 20S stopped ejecting today and I opened a ticket with FN but decided to remove the retaining pin myself to see what happened. The retaining pin disintegrated and the ejector spring was at the end opening with the debris from the pin. Does anyone know what size of roll pin the ejector retaining pin needs to be?

Thank you.

Sorry, it’s out of stock at Midwest Gun Works, but you may be able to back order it:

This assumes the same one is used for all SCAR models, which is probably safe.

Hello, I am new to the site and was wondering if you were able to fix this issue yourself. I had the same problem with my Scar 17 today. It seems the ejector retaining pin broke and my gun is not ejecting the brass just like yours. Did you contact FN or order the retaining pin from HDD? Thanks for any help, I can't believe this broke in less than 300 rounds.
