    First let me state this is how I do it. And has never failed me
    First remove the action from the stock. Dont forget to put safety in mid position.
    Once clear of stock, push the 2 pins out holding trigger group to the frame.
    You should now be looking at this

    Next put safety on "fire" apply pressure to hammer with your thumb and release the hammer. You should see this

    Now see the punch?? Push that pin out (some require a tap or 3 with a mallet)
    The top finger to the bolt release spring will unload. But is still trapped

    [​IMG]

    You will see in this photo the above pin is still captured. Its ok to remove it. Your choice. Next push hammer fwd and remove the hammer spring. You will see it sets in a hole in the frame and rides in a slot on the hammer. Some springs will shake out others need persuasion

    [​IMG]

    The hammer pushed fwd frees the spring and should look like this

    This pin is the pivot pin for the hammer and also traps the bolt release spring we talked about so take note. On older groups you will see a hammer and 2 hammer bushings plus the spring. On newer groups the bushings and hammer are 1 molded peice

    The hammer and bushings with spring is what you see here. Bushings are still seated in the hammer

    Next is this pin. It will release your bolt catch, the magazine release , and magazine catch with spring.

    [​IMG]

    You should see this

    Now the trigger pin. It will release the trigger, disconnecter/sear and spring, and trigger return spring and detent you see behind the trigger
    I use a slave pin to keep all peices together for assembly/disassembly of this. Slave pin is just long enough to keep parts together while removing or inserting. Heavy weed whip line works for this.
    [​IMG]

    Here you see my slave pin going in

    [​IMG]

    And here is the trigger and assoc parts as a group.. carefull inside the group that the slave pin is holding together is a small spring that's rather easy to lose

    [​IMG]

    Now except for the safety you are disassembled and ready for a good cleaning.. the assembly is in reverse order and ill do a tutorial on the safety for those who might want it
    Any questions post them up. Ill answer them sometime today.

    Outstanding, jeff, i've had mine apart only once a few years ago. It wasn't that dirty so i haven't taken it apart since. I see you have modified your bolt release to make it a auto bolt release.
