I just received my new M^CARBO @ChrisNelson spring kit for my Mossberg Maverick 88 gun. Man the excitement… After reviewing the video a few times, I was ready to tackle the job, at least so I thought!
The trigger group was removed from the gun ‘no problem.’ Of course when one has ‘animals’ in the house you cannot go without any disturbances! I l layed the weapon down and walked away for a few moments to take care of the problem. I came back to take care of my task at hand disassembling the trigger.
Of course as Chris said, ‘watch out for the roll pins coming out of the assembly!’ No sooner of ‘not thinking,’ my sear pin came out???!!! I do not know if any of you had that occur, but WOW , my day was SHOT???
It was my first time taking apart the trigger group! Well, taking apart things, there is an ORDER and not knowing how this assembly fully operates I did not follow the protocol and I was struggling with the springs. I finally figured it out. However, when it came time to putting the sear in, I was all thumbs. I cannot seem to manipulate the spring assembly and install the roll pin!
After spending a day getting NOWHERE, I am looking for a sear spring installation tool !!! I will still have to ‘fight’ the task of installation once the tool arrives. So, you want to be a gunsmith and earn ‘extra’ income? I am starting to question my logic… Laughing madly
