    I am trying to fix a Jennings 22 auto for my son.
    I think there is a spring missing. Can any one tell me what holds up the back of the trigger sub assy,

    I do not own a Jennings but from what I have seen the only thing that holds any part of them together is

    HOPE AND PRAYER

    Sorry just couldn't help it :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Place Jennings in 1 gallon coffe can
    Fill with concrete
    Place eyebolt in top center
    Wait 24 hours

    Now Jennings can be put to good use

    they sure sold a lot of j22's back in the day. They wear out quite easily. My wifes bryco 380 wore out the slide so bad it cracked.

    To answer the question, the trigger subassembly is springloaded to keep the trigger bar tensioned upward. It rides along the frame and pushes the cam which in turn pulls the sear downward. The whole shebang is kept aligned by the grip panel.
