Remington Model 12 Firing Pin Spring Question
I am working on an old Model 12 which I haven't had any experience with. My Lt. asked me to fix it because I am the dept armorer...but I only know newer Shotguns AR15 and pistols.
It came with missing parts, a broken firing pin, one missing firing pin retaining pin, firing pin spring and the guide were missing as well. Once I was able to break it down I found the parts nomenclature and pic on line to see what was missing and ordered the parts and the the owners manual...except I wasn't able to get the firing pin retaining pin. I am going have to substitute with a roll pin.
My question is about the firing pin spring and guide...how and exactly where are they fitted between the two retaining pins? Since I never saw it assembled correctly, I am guessing the forward pin fits through the notch on the firing pin (facing out left) and the rear pin fits through the oval hole/slot in the pin?
Hope my question makes sense to someone, and praying for a picture!
