    Not the easiest thing to do. Don't do it if you don't have to. Mine was full of grease and gravel so I had to. Have a third hand ready.

    I'm actually restoring.one for a buddy, he has been duck hunting with this gun for last 16 years, it has been under water, in the sand, and had countless shells through it, and he never cleaned it, it SAS rusty, Had to use channel locks to get the barrel nut loose, the trigger was so gritty it wouldn't reset it self, had no choice lol.

    Might be some usable parts there, including what they say is a complete trigger group.

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/220sig10/m....h=item19d7cf4297&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Some other parts listed (mag tube & spring & internals & such).

    Taking it apart is the easy part. I did find a couple YouTube videos on the subject that helped me but I have been working on firearms for the better part of 20 years. I have a small padded vice that held the housing while I assembled everything.

    The most difficult trigger group to assemble is the Camp 45 carbine. (In my opinion.)

    I you open one up, I'll tell you how I got mine back together and then I sold it. Once of that was enough.
