2011 Sear Spring Alignment

Recommended Posts

Twice now, I have found that the sear spring has moved or tilted such that the left leg fell off the sear.  (I can duplicate this with sloppy assembly)  I searched the forum and found that I am not alone, but no clear fix was identified.  Any help out there?

What Powder Finger said.  I use a punch and make two dimples along the left edge  below the leafs.   Or more recently used shrink wrap used for insulating electrical connections and put it around spring below the leafs and above the hook at bottom.  Heated it to shrink and the sear spring is aligned.

Use a small piece of sheet aluminum flashing to make an L shaped shim. install under the base of the spring no wiggle, stays tight.

Thanks folks.... So the peening causes the left leaf to bend inward, the heat shrink centers the spring in the opening, and the metal shim forces it to the right?
