    Default How do you replace the trigger return spring (P30)?

    Anybody have a link to instructions or a how-to for swapping out the trigger return spring on a P30? I was thinking of trying out the heavy return spring and seeing if that helped with a more forceful reset.
    My mission: To convert every HK USP, HK45, and HK45 Compact shooter on the planet to Variant 9. It will serve as a stop gap until all realize the clear superiority of the P30LS 9mm!

    I don't have a video, but I got a few tips.

    1. Make sure you take a good look at the current one so you know how it should sit.
    2. Keep the trigger in its most forward position. Tape helps.
    3. Make a slave pin. This helped me on my USP. Use it to keep the spring in place and help line it up.

    Just be prepared to walk away from it for a bit. The first time can be really frustrating.

    What's a Slave pin???

    I was having so much trouble with installing the Light TRS. I gave up and put the heavy TRS back and converted the rest of the gun to Todd Green variant.

    I'll play with this one for a while and maybe try install the light TRS in a month.

    Push the slide release lever from right --> left as if you were to field strip the gun, but do not push it out completely. Look for the TRS leg resting on the notch of the lever and lift it up to clear the notch, then push the lever all the way out. If you don't lift the leg, you will ruin the TRS and need a replacement.

    A set of needle-point pliers and a vise will make it easier.
    HK: Yeah, I've got that!
