Stupid CAN be fixed - failure to feed on 40Expert

I was thinking about something else when I loaded 9mm rounds into my 40 Expert. Shot a couple before I realized what was going on. Since then I have had a recurring problem with the last round in the magazine failing to go into battery. I tried cleaning thoroughly including the extractor and this has not solved the problem. It is otherwise functioning normally up to that last round. Did I break something? Time for a visit to the gunsmith?

Be aware that that those pin holes are tapered. IOW, the pin is supposed to go in one way only.

That proper direction is from the top of the slide to the bottom. Drive the pin out from the top, re-install from the bottom. And while the advice given not to re-use the same roll pin is sound, I dunno if I'd use the one from the mag release. Those pins are cheap; buy some new ones.
