    Thanks B.C., MIA is on the trail also. Seems like a lot of guys have their own way to do one. I tried but didn't work well. I have 2 triggers to do.

    Don, here's a pic of one I recently made. I've used other types, home made bent pliers and the forked drivers. The reason I made this pair is I lost my hammer rod using pliers while attempting to install a heavy duty spring on mine! The rod is in one of about 10,000 empty cases,:). The pin ricocheted off 4 walls and disappeared! Probably would have hurt a fellow if it hit him too!

    Small Sears vice grips, a John Deer slave pin and a master link from a Harley chain and a little experimenting and out comes the safest and best I've ever used. I still have to cut down the slave pin which fits over the guide base and dress up the ends. The slave pin is notched out to hold the spring in place to prevent it slipping out when compressing the spring. Installing the heavy duty spring with them as is was a snap, lock it, load it and release. A pretty fair "tweak" that works well. Hap
