Default Trigger guard replacement help?

I got an old Harrington & Richardson model 088 410 gauge singles shot not to long ago. I'm just getting into fixing it up and have run into some problems. The trigger guard is broken and I'm not sure how to replace it. Does anyone know where I can get a new one and how I can take it out/ put a new one in?

So my idea that they are similar to the AR was wrong haha. How exactly would I get the broken trigger guard out? I googled it and yahooed it but I haven't found any info pertaining to my model.

Looking at this schematic, it looks like the #7 is with the trigger assembly.

It should be easy enough if care is taken.

The pins are knurled on one side, so you need to drive them out so the knurling side exits the receiver first

If you look at a Numrich's schematic it does show a difference on the end of the pin, not the best detail but that corresponds to the knurling.

Brass punch usually gets em started to move. Have done dozens, but one was a real PITA.

Here is where you buy me a beer.............

Putting it back together..........you can come close to getting things all lined up, many times. Save yourself the hassle and make a "slave pin" that holds the trigger group stuff all together, then slide that into place and insert the pins(s).

Had a guy in my LGS work one one for an hr, almost got it, over and over. I went to the back and dug out the slave I made, popped it in the trigger group and had the thing together in seconds.

Good guy, but he still punched me (I used to work there so knew where I stashed it). Been years and we still laugh about it (and he doubles up his fist).

You can see the "detail" on the pins in this schematic.

Should show you the direction, unless somebody has worked on it before and put them in the other way.

I would replace part #29 Locking Bolt Catch Spring while I was at it. The Locking Bolt Catch Spring is going to fall out when you remove the trigger guard. Locking Bolt Catch Spring $2.35
