    Trigger Group Problems.

    I just bought my first Garand and detail stripped to clean it up. While putting the trigger group back together it got stuck like this. How do I fix this? The trigger pin is not inserted and it is still stuck together. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The trigger has to be cocked before you insert into stock. Trigger guard needs to be unlatched. Is that your problem? Also looks like it could use some grease.

      The problem is that the trigger and plunger are stuck it there without the trigger pin even being installed. Something is bound up somewhere and I can’t get them apart.

        You have to compress the hammer spring to be able to get the pin in. Follow these steps:

          I have compressed it and I can’t get the hole to line up properly. If I remove the pin I can’t even get the thing to come apart.

            Ok, I had that problem once or twice. I don't remember what I did but I just kept working on it until I got it free. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Maybe one of the other guys will step in.

              No worries Jak. It is just baffling because I can’t see anything that would be keeping it in there. The only thing it might be is the trigger sitting too far into the trigger guard. But I can’t get the trigger to budge.

                I believe you will need to unlatch the trigger guard and push the trigger assembly forward and up, compressing the trigger spring and relieving pressure on the trigger tail hung up in the housing. Could be wrong, of course.

                  I fixed it! I had to compress the spring as much as possible and pry the trigger up out of the trigger guard. It was perfectly wedged in there so that it wouldn’t budge. Basically exactly what LavaTech said. Thanks guys.
