Looks like the same people have a stainless pin that would match the existing Strietman pin better. Then again, maybe it'd be good to have a softer metal on the easier to replace part.

It is the front pin which is brass, but I ordered one of each to try. :)

I just got used to it and have no problem removing it every 3 weeks for lubing and cleaning. I just use a small flathead screwdriver and that works great.
