The trigger guard itself (from my MX 8) is held in place with a pin in the rear of the trigger guard/assembly. There does not seem to be a pin that holds the front of it. Does the guard remove by rotaing one way or the other?
thanks, Larry

hi deadeye: You take the pin out of the back of trigger guard, and unscrew the guard from the frame. Sometimes you need to remove trigger so the guard will clear. GEG.

The front of the trigger guard is threaded into the trigger housing, turn counter clockwise to take it off after you removed the rear pin.

As "wanderer" said, you will have to remove the trigger pin, and in doing so, you will loosen up the sears, BEFORE you CCW twist the trigger guard.

If you turn the guard BEFORE you loosen the trigger, you will gouge the front of the trigger guard on the front of the trigger.

AND, BE CAREFUL when you remove the trigger pin, because when the sears drop down, there will be two sear return springs and plungers that like to launch themselves into space. Do this over a nice, WHITE sheet or the like, so you're not like me and end up on your hands and knees crawling around the shop looking for the re-entry vehicles.
