Default Sear Spring Removal

I am in the process of doing some internal maintenance on my 12 guage Parker and am at the point where I need to remove one of the sear springs (old style). I am looking for advice on how to remove it without any damage. Thanks in advance for your help.

Look on our Home Page and refer to the links in the column at the left.

You will find various tutorials under the FAQ heading.

I researched the FAQs on the Home page as Dean suggested but they do not address sear spring removal.

I read that FAQ in detail. It does not address sear spring removal.

They are rarely loose enough to pull out from the tip with pliers. Use a non-marring wedge and gently tap it between the bottom of the spring and the frame and it should pop loose enough to pull with pliers. If you donít have or canít make an aluminum or brass wedge/punch, a regular thin blades tapered screwdriver will work but if you arenít careful you can roll or mark up the edge of the frame.
