I have a american bulldog in for new springs.  No problem removing them and had new ones in stock.  PROBLEM, how in he** do I get the trigger spring back in.  It slides off the trigger each time I try to put it in place.  I have had these prior, but this one is causing me grief.  Any suggestions.

Back goes in first, front goes in with screw first?

CAPT55, I see you have not gotten any help. Maybe that is because you didn't say which American Bulldog you have. To my knowledge,Iver Johson and H&R both made a model with this trade name. A British maker also used this name on export modesl of their British Bulldog. However, there isn't much out there on maintence and repair of these handguns. It is mostly handled under the generic instructions for the revolver type..like Top-Break or Solid Frame. From what I recall of this style of handgun the use of slave pins is common. Another personal "KINK" is to secure parts in place with wax,like the kind used to seal Jelly jars when making homemade product. Once the assebly is complete, the heat from a hair dryer style of heat gun melts the wax and then a dunk in  a solvent will remove the residue..a spray oil is then applied...Hope this helps some....

Thanks Zeke, it was one of the british ones, that's why I was having so much trouble.  I got it this m orning, using slave pins and a lot of four letter words.  Gun was rusted on the inside of the frame to the extent it was a pain in the butt.

The four letter words are universal tool...but...for some reason the same ones don't always work..try variations of the same theme next time.....
