Default trigger group problems

Hi, new to the forums here. I have a 582- series mini 14 and I popped out the trigger assembly to show my brother how the rifle was disassembled so that if he takes it shooting he can clean it himself. when i went to reassemble the rifle, I found that the trigger would not work. I cannot pull the trigger far back enough to release the hammer. When I take the assembly out of the stock and snap the trigger guard back in place, the trigger works normally. I'm hoping that one of you gentlemen could help me find a solution before I resort to sending it to ruger. The rifle is still more or less brand new, I bought it last month and ive put barely 100 rounds through it.
any help would be much appreciated
thanks

Try racking the slide before re-installing the trigger assembly.

Read the owners manual

Make sure the trigger is cocked before trying to dissemble or reassemble. After you remove the trigger you do not have to snap the guard back , leave it the way it was when you took it out. Hope this helps. And read the owners manual like Mongo said. Good luck

Default resolution

well, after a lengthy process that involved me trying to fix it to sending it to a smith and ultimately off to ruger, the tale of my sick mini 14 has come to an end. The smith suspected it was an issue with the secondary sear, as did I, though when he returned the rifle to me he told me that ended up not being the case. So off it went to ruger. Last friday I got a call from ruger to let me know that they could not fix the problem and they are sending me a new rifle and if I could kindly send them the information for the ffl I would use for the replacement. I suspect that there is an out of spec part that is not easily brought into spec. anyways, I am posting this so that anyone who comes across a similar issue can have some sort of resolution. when in doubt, send it back to ruger.

They do stand behind their products pretty darn well. I blew up a Stainless Mini back in the mid 80's. They "rebuilt" it with new receiver and barrel. I think the only part that was old was the stock.

One of my guys had a P-95 (I think) with a bad extractor. They sent the part next day along with a very good set of instructions on how to replace. It took me more time to read the instructions than it took to actually switch it out
