    Take off the stock. You need to remove the trigger guard first. Mainsprings can be removed easily with a hefty needlenose pliers. There is some physical effort but no trick stuff.

    Take a screwdriver, cut a notch to fit the guide rod that holds the spring. I used a dremel cut of disk to make the notch. Grind one corner of screw driver for clearance. Makes decompressing the spring simple, and instilling the new one easy. 10tenner

    You need either a modified screwdriver or the tool like Brownells sells.

    I ended up buying a tool from Brownells.

    I put Wolf replacement springs on the lower barrel. Having some misfires. It is a good thing that they give you two. The first one flew to some hidden corner of the basement! The stock spring I could remove with my fingers and no tools. Trigger pull is stronger pound wise now.
