I noticed in the scant literature I've read about the Caracal that it mentions a "roller pin" as being one of the big differences between it and the Steyr M series.

What is a roller pin?

Perhaps you could cite your source on this? The Caracal is held together by roll pins (see my disassembly thread) - a design that is not shared in common with the Steyr pistols.

You would also have read that the newest import Steyr pistols have a new "roll pin" trigger, which describes a slight modification to the trigger design. On the newest M-A1 and S-A1 series pistols, Steyr added a bearing in the slide to make the trigger more consistent; this bearing is held in place by a roll pin through the slide. These new "roll pin" trigger Steyr pistols are generally regarded as more desirable, as they come with a "better" trigger.

I reread everything and I think you're right, I just wasn't putting it all together. S
sometimes I think I'm senile.

Thank you.
