    M1 Garand Lesson trigger housing assembly "Video"

    I finally did a video to show a easy way without any special tools how to take the trigger housing apart and put it back together. Hope it helps. Rick Bicon

    Here is a step by step instructional, I used this the first time I disassembled one.

    http://207.36.233.89/garand/triggerd...mbly/index.asp

    The above link is no longer active, I saved the instruction file before the web site went down, if you want a copy e-mail me.

    Sarge, notice in the photographic step by step the trigger guard is removed before the hammer and safety. I can't do that on mine. The safety has to be removed first. I don't know if it is because of tolerances or I'm not holding my tongue right. For me it is easier to remove the hammer and safety first since they will be removed anyway

    I do recall the tolerances being tighter on some of the ones I've stripped, they make it look easy, but you really have to position and twist that part just right to get it out and back in place. I replaced the stamped guard with a milled on my 43' receiver, that seemed to go okay, at least I didn't have to walk away frustrated only to try again later, get the part together first try, then say to yourself (how'd I do that so easy?" I also admit to not following instructions step by step if things are just going well, but the hammer shouldn't matter at that point though you could remove it first, I can see the safety as an issue due to tolerances.
    Rick Bicon made that look so easy, I will have to practice how he replaced that trigger pin, that has always been lottery time for me.

    Hi Sarge,

    Yup, I was proud of myself when I got it all back and then got the whole rifle together again this morning, and I'm feeling much more confident about doing it again.

    That is extremely helpful - wish I had that video the first time I detail stripped a Garandicon.

    Thanks
