I am trying to figure out how to take out and switch the backstraps. I know you are supposed to to knock out the pin towards the bottom of the grip or something but it is not working, unless the pin is really tight in my gun. Words, pictures or a video could help...

Drive out the pin that is located near the bottom of the grip to remove the strap.  Tap it out with a 1/8" punch and small hammer.  Be sure to support the handle when doing this and drive from left to right.  When you replace the pin drive from right to left.  I can not remember is the pin is actually directional or not but if it is this is the way it would need to be removed.  If it is not then driving from left to right is simply a good habit to get into.

Use a punch not an allen wrench.

And when new you have to give it a good whack the first time to dislodge the pin.

also, if you have a finishing nail, cut the point off and make it a flat edge, might also work for those of you who dont have punches,

3/32 pin punch works perfect there about 2$ at any hardware store
