Knight Bighorn firing pin help
« on: October 14, 2023, 09:01:28 PM »
OK, the tiny little spring in the middle of the pic needs a home.  I disassembled the firing pin and got distracted for a few hours.  Now I cannot remember where the pin goes.  Any experts help me out?

I think it goes under the sharp dome shaped part that helps keep the safety held in the safe or fire position

No there is already a spring there.  Good guess though

Had mine apart recently and remember the spring,but location is evading me. I can pull mine apart and take a look in the morning.

Another guess. It's the spring that keeps the trigger in the forward position?

I'll look tomorrow.

I bet that is it.  The trigger didn't feel right.  Just need to know exactly where it goes.

@Sabotloader

He knows exactly where it goes. Seems like he helped someone on this very issue before.

Is this one in place?
If not I'll dig deeper.

I havent tore my trigger completely apart yet, but it sure looks like that spring goes behind the trigger adjustment screw and locking nut. I can look through the tiny hole behind the screw and see the spring working with a magnifying glass when I work the trigger. The spring in the last pic I put up is too big to be the one your showing.

I'm positive it's the spring behind the trigger adjustment screw. It looks like you can pull the screw and put the spring in.

I looked for a schematic online. No luck.

yes and no.  I put the trigger back together and it works, still needs adjustment.  Makes me wonder if that spring was part of the trigger assembly or just happened to be in the area I was pulling the trigger apart.  I was ticked off enough about it that I bought a new muzzleloader today haha.

Looking at mine now. Fairly certain this spring... DISREGARD.

Closer inspection - my best guess from the feel of the trigger and visual inspection is that it sits between the forward upper part of the trigger and the aluminum trigger pack housing. There is spring tension there, but I don't want to pull it completely apart.
