View Full Version : Removing trigger group on 870 Express
April 4, 2009, 08:51 AM
The manual says nothing about taking the trigger group out to clean. I see it's held in there by 2 pins. If i pop out the pins, will the group come out? I would like to give it a good hose down and lube it correctly. Will all sorts of springs and pins pop out if I take the group out?

Yup---just those 2 pins holding it in.

if memory serves me right when you put it back in the hammer must be down and shotgun bolt all the way forward and i wouldnt take it apart any further unless you know all about the assembly,alot of little parts and springs

yep, pop the pins out with a golf tee and it slides right out. keep the safety on and don't pull the trigger.

When the trigger plate is out of an 870, the hammer should be left cocked and the safety ON. Pulling the trigger when the hammer is not stopped by the firing pin/bolt body might result in damage or unintended disassembly...
