    It is easy when you have that special tool that looks like a pliers with a notch in it. Whiz White may have the tool.

    That tool definitely helps. Can be done with other means but it is tough. Let's just say, leverage is your friend. I would replace the firing pin return springs also. As far as when to replace them, there are many variables. I always store my guns with the tension on the main spring released.

    I have instructions on how to do this without the tool on my website above.

    In fact, I'm looking for someone to make some of these old style tools that I can stock and sell. I just don't have the time to make them myself. Lucio was trying to put some together for me, but he's busier than I am.

    I do have the tool for the newer style guns using coil springs, and it differs in design from the old tool. These work using a dimpled hole in the rear of the trigger housing which the old style housings do not have.

    A bent needle nose pliers seems to work best in conjuction with a soft jawed vise to hold the trigger group. Be cautioned, if you try this drape a towel in front of your work because if the pliers slip off the spring guide rod it has enough force to impale someone or put a hole in something.

    After a couple of bouts changing TM springs with pliers, I acquired the proper tool to do the job.

    What Dead On said. Anytime you are working with springs, cover them with clear plastic, or something. It will save you allot of time, and frustration. When one lets go, and gets away from you, you will be absolutely amazed at where they can end up. Especially, if you lose track during the ping and pangs, portion of their journey. Oh, and always wear eye protection!

    Ya, Barry... (HA!) that's why 12 of the 15 Olympic shooting champions shot Perazzi's with leaf springs. Dead on 4, must have stumbled on 4 going to 5, and smacked himself in the head, or he's "been drinkin' Draino!"

    You and I know better, so let's not tell the others...

    Russell Wilson - UK, Perazzi MX2005 - Doubles<BR>
    Giovanni Cernogoraz - Crotia, Perazzi MX2000/8 - Trap<BR>
    Kim Rhode - USA, Perazzi MX2000/3 - Skeet<BR>
    Jessica Rossi - Italy, Perazzi MX8 - Trap<BR>
    Zuzana Stefecekova - SVK, Perazzi MX2000/3 - Trap
    Hakan Dahlby - Sweden, Perazzi MX2008 - Doubles<BR>
    Massimo Frabbrizi - Italy, Perazzi MX8 - Trap<BR>
    Anders Golding - Denmark, Perazzi MX2000/8 - Skeet<BR>
    Fehaid Aldeehani, Kuwait, Perazzi MX2005 - Trap<BR>
    Vasily Mosin, Russia - Perazzi MX2008 - Doubles Trap<BR>
    Delphane Reau - France, Perazzi MX8 - Trap<BR>
    Danka Bertekova - SVK, Perazzi MX200/8 - Womens Skeet

    Wanna bet that all were using leaf springs. I am now awaiting to see the Perazzi muzzle loader

    Whiz, Were all those drop out triggers with leafs or coils? I think you'll find some coils in the mix.
