Rear trigger group pin loose

Post by Ranger86 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 6:01 pm

Good afternoon,

I searched this forum, but did not find any information about my problem. I have an approximatly 20 year old express magnum. My ready trigger group pin does not stay in place. If I tilt the shotgun, the pin falls right out. It looks like there is a flat bar inside the receiver that should grab the grove on the pin, but it doesn't. Original pin fell out and was lost, remington replaced it, but this one is no better. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

The trigger assembly should have detent springs in it that holds the pins in place.

Oh, I believe that I am missing that spring. Thank you. Looks like I'm calling brownells...

Make sure you order the proper spring. The one in the back is a different size than the one in the front.

Doesn't hurt to have an extra on hand, Midway has them as well. I add stuff like that when I am placing more substantial orders, like mags or ammo. Also I noticed on one of mine the clip didn't seem to be very tight, give it a little bend if it isn't tight.
