    Mossberg 500 Shotguns - Sorry I found 5 More Quiz Questions!
    I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Armorers course on Mossberg 500 Shotguns. I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the future.

    There are over 60 quiz questions covering this firearm and I have answered most of them. During my study and research I am having some problems related to some of the following quiz questions. Either I am not sure of the correct answer or I have conflicting answers.

    Can you help me determine the correct answers for these few real final 5 quiz questions? Please correct my answers if I am wrong.

    Thanks for your help.

    a) the amount that the firing pin is mechanically shoved forward

    a) .040" to .055"

    Note #25. When installing the sear back into the trigger housing, the notch should
    a) face to the left side of the trigger housing
    b) face to the right side of the trigger housing
    c) face upwards

    Note #26. A special tool must be used to install what gun parts?

    Yeah, doesn't getting your answers off the interweb kinda violate the spirit of the test?
