I am in the process of reassembling one of my Garands after doing some work on it (wood refinish, etc.). Despite my best efforts, I cannot seem to compress the trigger spring and plunger by hand to go into position between the trigger and hammer. I must be getting old and decrepit.

Any tricks someone might suggest, or should I just give up and take it to "Guido the Gunsmith"? Thanks.

It's a bear to get back together, I can't remember exactly how I did it. I used punched to hold everything together, pushed the hammer in place then put the pin in I believe.

It does take a couple of times putting them together by hand to get the technic down. What I do is hold the trigger housing assy in my right hand and with my right thumb press down on the sear on the trigger assembly compressing the hammer spring until I can get the pin in .
