    Does anyone have a pictorial or step by step procedure to replace the hammer spring on this shotgun? Checked this site and the web and cannot seem to find any instructions.

    Thanks. Darryl

    Darryl,

    To replace the hammer spring, you have to remove the hammer pin. The easiest way I have found is to use a Dremel tool and grind the rolled over part off. For me, it is easier to remove the shell lifter first. Be careful of the springs. They have a tendency to fly away. When you replace the hammer spring, you will need a new hammer pin and washer. Slide everything back together and flare the end of the pin.

    Hope this helps, Alan

    They make a special tool but I use a Phillips screwdriver tip.

    the hammer, hammer pin doesn't have to be removed! there is enough play in the strap that holds the spring cylinder in place to hold it over to one side and the whole thing comes out in your hand.replace spring and push it all back in place. no fancy tools and 5 minutes tops.

    Thanks everyone for your responses. Benneisdad, I have the guide you referenced but the guide is unclear as to exactly what is required for removal of the hammer spring or only required to replace a particular part.

    Sent a pm to Twinbirds concerning their approach to the spring removal.

    Again, thanks to all and have a wonderful holiday season. Darryl

    Ernesto1,
    I owe everybody an apology! The assembly that I just replaced the hammer spring on was a Timmney release and the little catch above the spring cylinder has been modified or is different than original equipment. I am sorry that I got your hopes up. The way I found out, when I went to take pictures of how I done mine on the pull trigger assembly,the little bracket would not allow the spring cylinder to slide by. Again sorry for the confusion. Leo

    Pain in the ass.

    I gave a new spring to my gunsmith and he charged me $20 to put it in.

    He ground off the rolled over part of the hammer pin and used a small spot weld to put it back together.

    Worth it if you ask me.
