Trigger rivet won't go all the way back in after conversion.

Recommended Posts

Greetings. Just did my first conversion for a friend. Stupid easy thing to do. Had no idea .

 

Anyways, after everything was put back together we realized the rivet that holds the trigger in place isn't all the way flush, and we cant get it all the we flush either. I'm concern that this thing will wiggle outward during firing. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a non-issue?

 

Thanks!

You didn't say what model. Which side isn't the axis pin flush on? If it's the left side it's normal. Pictures would help.

Is it in the hole, and is the retaining clip or plate solidly locked into the groove on the pin? If not, then the gun is not ready. Also you should be able to poke the pin from the left side of the receiver without it moving out of the hole on the left side. 

 

My guess is that you have your shepherd's crook or retaining plate on the wrong side of the pin groove and it is preventing you from fully seating the pin.

I think you are correct. I just took it all apart, paid more attention to that, and put it back together. Issue seems resolved. I actually got really lucky by doing all of this, as I realized the front river that holds the hammer in place wasn't through the bolt hold open. Thanks!

Glad you got it sorted. 

 

p.s. The Code of Federal Regulations isn't all that popular around here. Were you trying to start fights with that screenname?
