P229 /228 locking blocks
Thanks to the classifieds here I'll have the top half to install on my 2002 P229R that originally was made as a .40 cal. Now I'll have the balance( hopefully) and the caliber exchange to 9mm. I watched a couple YouTube videos and changing the locking block seems to be straight forward.Any surprises,tips,hints,I should be aware of. I have installed SRT kits is some of my pistols but have not done a more detailed strip down than that.

Pretty straightforward. The frame MUST BE DE-COCKED in order to remove the locking block. Make sure the orientation of your slide catch spring is correct, hard to mess up, just put the curved tail inside the hole and let it run down the drivers side. You will have to rotate the pin that the locking block sits under (flat head on driver's side to turn with, you can just use your nail) until it slides down in easy. Be sure to tip the frame so the slide catch lever stays laid up against the driver's side. You shouldn't have to force anything and if the takedown lever hole doesn't line up it is not completely seated.

Installed, the notches in the trigger pivot pin face down and what looks like a screw drive slot is horizontal on the gun's left side.
To install, do as HemiRR and bblr said. Once you install the pivot pin with slots down, you will find the locking block often inserts more easily if, prior to installing the block, you turn the "slot" from 9 - 3 o'clock, clockwise until the slot is about 10:30 - 4:30 or so. Install locking block moving it down and to the rear. It will rotate the slot horizontal as it goes into place.

Thanks all. You make it sound easy. By the end of the week I should know whether I have the skills or not. I wanted to be sure and not find out the hard way with a flying spring or such. I usually have good luck finding the spring or small part but more time wondering how or where it went/fits.

Well it went in quite easily,probably not as quick as other but hey it's done.
I hope to get to the range and test it out this weekend. The x-ray sights look user friendly.
The 229 locking block and the 228 locking block did not have any discernable difference to my eyes, The 228 LB had a 29 stamped on it and no stampings I can see on the 229 lb I removed.
the next time I have them both available i will try and take some pictures.
