Default Mossberg 500C

I am about to complete the Master Gunsmith course from PSU, and wanted to attempt to fix repair the safty on my Mossberg 500c 20 gauge shotgun. My grandson took the gun hunting last winter and returned it with the safty latch missing.

1. Do I drill out the trigger pin, or does it punch out?

2. I have already purchased the schematics from Numrick, but is there a repair guns book?

3. What tools, other then screwdrive, pliers & hammer will I most likely need?

Any information to assist me would be appreciated. As I am just starting out in this field.

Thanks

Really? You're about to complete a Master course in GunSmithing. I don't mean to be rude but these are questions you should already know the answer too.

With those questions, I would question what are you getting for your money.
The first thing one learns is what tools and how to properly use them.
Pliers have no place in a gunsmith shop. (I can understand the hammer, but make sure it is one BFH)

If you don't want to answer my question, keep silent, I don't need your comments.

The trigger pin punches out. When you pull the trigger group free from the action the shell stops (long pieces of steel on each side) will fall out if you don't watch it. I suggest the AGI courses.

Default Reply, Thanks

Thanks for your reply, I realized that once I noticed that it was a pin, and not a ribit. About AGI, I considered them but they do not except monthly payments. They want all cash up front. Poor people can't go that route.

However; I have been around and worked on guns all my life, and I believe with a schematics and a place to order from, like Numrick, I can fix about anything. I don't think you actually need a gunsmith certificate to be a gunsmith, (I'm a retired locksmith, but wanted something I could do as I relaxed) so I considered gunsmith, and took the course only for a place to order schematics and parts from, and I'm sure there's books out there along with the internet and U-tube where I can find info.

Thanks Again

P.S. I too, am/or was a Kentuckian, born and raised in Greenup County, but left there in 1967. A bad mistake!

i've seen several older guns end up with horse shoe nail firing pins lmao i prefer the good old lathe and rockwell test , oh and i must not forget all the books you receive when you attend an accredited school for gunsmithing.
