    Have you ever taken yours apart?

    I just got a second trigger spring in the mail today from Ernie.

    Not fully. I’ve changed the stocks a few times and pull the trigger, but never a full tear down.

    I replaced o-rings in the 760s I own this evening using Danco #40 o-rings. The original o-rings where intact though flattened. The replacements firmed up the pump and it feels very nice.

    I had to pump a tremendous amount of heat into the tube using a propane torch to loosen the red loctite. Needless to say I did not re-loctite the threads.

    Thanks for the update.

    Did you lube them at all?

    I lubed them with a good dose of gun oil only.

    Honestly-it isn't that hard (especially if I can do it!). The only problem you might run into is getting that action tube to "break off" the threads. Mine was very difficult to remove. It is a lot easier if you have a vice. But it literally comes right off once you get started and you can just pull the rod out and their is a groove for the o ring.

    From what I have read, it seems pretty common to have to heat the tube to unscrew it from the receiver. As mentioned, that sounds like the hardest part of this job.

    There is a tool ($40) which would make tube removal a lot easier.

    What's it look like? Is it something that one could make fairly easily?

    Looking for it as I type here.
