    What is the procedure to relieve the firing pin/pins spring tension when breaking down (removing stock and receiver from the barrels) on an over and under shotgun.

    After I took off the barrels, I put a piece of hard plastic or a copper penny over the firing pin holes, then pull the trigger.
