Default M1 Trigger Assembly

One of my worst fears is putting together (as in "assemblying) a Trigger Assembly..especially after it had come apart by accident.. I guess I do not have the "right way" of squeezing the parts together in order to insert the pin.

Just keep working on it, you'll get it. I always found out that if you can't get it together or anything for that matter, put it down and come back in an hour or two and "BOOM" she goes right together.

The first time I tried to do one was in the AMC class.After about 5 minutes of fighting the trigger pin one of the instructors took it in one hand and while looking me in the eye shook it a couple of times and handed it back completed. So simple like the jitterbug it plum evaded me.

That is one of those great pieces of advice. I learned that when I was a kid. Not that I don't get worked up sometimes because things don't go right.

The trigger group, the bolt and the rear sight and maybe a couple of other things on the Garand can be challenging. But when you get it and it "goes home", Ooh,La,La, it's so sweet. You know, kind of like, well....

I use a small "F" clamp that cost a dollar or so from Harbor Frt to compress the spring to insert the pin. Works like a charm and no strain on older hands.

That's exactly what I use. Piece of cake.
