Tired of dropping or losing your trigger housing pin?
Before takedown I am sure everyone clears their carbine, right! Shocked
 
What this does is it cocks the hammer. I am sure everyone will agree not to dry fire, so what to do?
Pull the slide back until you feel it engage the hammer. Pull the trigger and hold while you control the slide forward.
 
Now the hammer will be pressing against the bolt, this in turn puts a little pressure on the trigger housing and the pin will be less likely to fall out. No more digging under the bench for your trigger housing pin!Clap

Dan, good tip, however I am not sure everyone would agree not to dry fire. I for one was brought up where "snapping in" is a critical part of marksmanship training, teaches trigger control, sight alignment, sight picture and breath control. Dry firing is also part of the trigger group function check described in Ruth and Duff's Carbine owners guide. Additionally dry firing is encouraged in the CMP Rifle Safety Manual where page 12 of this manual has a whole paragraph on dry firing and pretty much starts with this "Be assured that reasonable amounts of dry firing will not harm these surplus military rifles since all were designed to be subjected to extensive dry fire exercises during military training."

Thanks for the tip also Dan, A practice I always do on my Mauser type bolt guns, shows my continuing learning curve of Carbine 30 Cal. Will do the same on both types now.
