  • Floor plate latch spring reassembly help

    I took my bottom metal apart and removed the wrinkle finish. I painted it with some nice flat black epoxy paint. Everything looks great and went back together EXCEPT I can't get the latch spring back in.

    Any help will be appreciated as I can't find anything on YouTube..

    It sounds like you may have gotten some paint in there, I would check that first. Did you put it back in the stock? maybe something is binding there.

      It was correctly disassembled, cleaned of all krinkle paint and refinished.
      My gunsmith took care of it for me.
      Problem solved.

        Sometimes they take a lot of downwards pressure to get it to slide into the guide. I’ve been there.

          I screwed up.
          I should have taken a pic of how the spring was installed prior to taking it apart for refinishing.

          My error.

          Old age I guess, yeah that's the ticket !
