    The video was great. But 2:07 is way too quick for me right now.....I'll be practicing using the still pics for a while.

    Rick,

    Today I disassembled the trigger group for the barreled receiver project I completed in October, the en bloc was barely clearing the receiver when empty so I thought it best to replace the clip ejector spring. Doesn't hurt to say that practicing your techniques in the video have really made this easy even with arthritic hands. My question is related to your technique (or other responders) as to re-installing the spring. I eventually figured out a method that worked that I believe I can use again, but is there a better way? The rest of the assembly is going really well, and if I'm lucky I could probably do everything but replace the clip ejector spring in about 3 minutes or less, certainly not in 2:07 though! Thanks again

    Sarge,
    I have found no easy way to replace the spring and fear it when I have to do it. I have arthritis also and that thing is a pain having to use more than one tool and two hands to pinch it over the pin. I guess I could set down and try to do it quicker but bet I would have a few injuries. I got lucky one time Glad teh rest of the video help. Rick Bicon

    I wish I could save the video to my computer so that I would have it to refer to instead of trying to find the link. I do appreciate having it on the forum. Great video.

    Wow. I know this thread is old, but I just found it very helpful for disassembly and reassembly to polish my trigger group mating surface.
    In addition to many thanks, all I can say is Rick Bicon must doing something else to give that left hand such a great workout. The way you squeeze that trigger spring to get the last pin makes it look like you are just sticking your thumb in the birthday cake - needless to say my first experience wasn't quite as effortless. Thanks!

    Great Video

    I do believe that this is likely the best self-help video I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot of them. Short, to the point, and crystal clear.

    Thanks.
