Anyone remember the guide someone posted for installing a trigger return spring in 60 seconds? I tried looking for it using the search as well as a google search. I couldn't find it. Asking for a friend of mine.

I have never seen a TRS guide. I just made sure the one leg went behind the trigger and pushed straight down with my needle nose pliers. I was just able to get one coil on my allen wrench (used it instead of a punch, could not find a 1/16 punch anywhere), so I then pushed the rest down with a screwdriver and slid the allen wrench the rest of the way over. Then pushed out the allen wrench from the other side with the trigger pin.

I would say about 60 seconds is all it took once I got the right pliers.

That's the way I do it. Sears sells 1/16th Craftsman punches or you can order them from Mcmaster-Carr.

My local Sears didn't have one in stock. Didn't want to drive 40 miles to the next closest one that was in stock. Sure didn't want to wait two days for it to come in if I ordered one.

Patients is NOT one of my virtues. :)

The first one I did was a few weeks ago. It helped to tape the trigger in the forward position. It took 10-15 minutes, including trying several different tools. I finally got it into place once I figured out how to hold it with my thick needlenose pliers.

The second one I did was last week. It took about 30 seconds, and I didn't use tape. I think using the long skinny type needlenose pliers would be very helpful, it would be a first try installation using them.
