Each of these pins has a groove near the outside, on one side.

What is the purpose of these?

thank you

The ears on the hammer spring sit in the grooves, retaining the pins.

Thank you

Does the direction matter?

for the hammer, yes.

I've never heard that the direction really matters, but I've always made it a habit of inserting the pins left <non eject side> to right with the groove on the left...

there's a J spring inside the hammer that catches onto the groove of the pin which keeps it from walking out, it doesn't really matter I guess if you don't mind the pin to move around.

for the hammer, yes.

How would it matter?  The J-pin will catch in the center groove either way and no matter if the trigger pin is inserted from the left or the right, the hammer spring will rest on top of the trigger pin, with one end in the groove on the trigger pin.

Hmm, I guess you're right, I stand corrected.
