Remington 597 Trigger Spring Kit Instructions

1. Verify the rifle magazine and chamber are empty.

2. Following the instructions in your owner’s manual, remove the trigger mechanism from your gun.

3. Use ~2” finishing nail (must be smaller than 0.125 dia) to press the hammer pin out.

4. Lift the hammer, spring, and spacers out of the trigger housing.

5. Arrange the hammer, kit spring and spacers and install them into the housing. Install the stock pin, taking care to align the parts. Be patient and do not force anything as your plastic trigger housing can be damaged easily.

6. Now is a good time to add a little grease to the hammer surface. Do not attempt to polish the hammer or sear surfaces, as doing so would remove the stock teflon-nickel coating as well as potentially make your trigger unstable.

8.Re-install the trigger assembly into your gun per your owner’s manual.

9.Cycle the action to cock the hammer. Load a snap cap or spent shell into the chamber.

10. Put the rifle on safe and point the muzzle in a safe direction. Pull the trigger to verify that the safety works and the hammer does not fall when you attempt to pull the trigger.

11.Place the safety on “fire”. With the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, pull the trigger and verify the hammer falls.

12.Your Remington is ready to be test fired. You should notice a reduced trigger force and associated accuracy improvement.

My review addendum

When I wrote my review of the Mcarbo 597 spring kit I was focused on the additional let-off of the trigger sear that I forgot to mention one of the most important advantages of the Mcarbo spring. I mentioned that when properly installed the hammer rests left past vertical whereas with the Remington spring the hammer is vertical. The important thing to note is the Mcarbo spring applies pressure to the hammer PAST vertical and consequent gives a more aggressive hit to the firing pin and cartridge primer and the F-to-F (Fail to Fire) problem disappears!

Inspection of fired cases shows the definite difference between the Remington spring/firing pin primer "dimple" vs. the more aggressive firing pin dent caused by the Mcarbo spring!

The MCARBO trigger spring kit has converted an awful trigger on my Remington 597 into a decent one and my group size has improved. The quality of the spring kit is excellent and was easy to install and the price was also very reasonable.

Tip On How To Get the Spring Kit in Right The First Time!

I bought a new Remington 597 counting on Remington to have corrected the shortcomings that received so many negative reviews. I was wrong! After over a year of negative reviews I found the rifle still almost required two fingers to fire the damn thing!

I followed the lead of many other posters on the 597 forums and ordered the Volquartsen hammer and the Mcarbo spring kit and installed this combination.

The hammer went in without a hitch because there's no way it can go in backwards. However, I did have a problem installing the Mcarbo spring kit. I installed the spring in backwards five (5) times! This was after reading the instructions several times as well as watching the Youtube installation several times.

When I installed it I installed it exactly like Remington had THEIR spring installed, which is WRONG way to install the Mcarbo spring. This was an 80 year old taking a mind fart to a whole new level.

To save a lot of grief and put a simplistic spin on rather you have the spring installed backwards pay attention to the position of the hammer after the spring is installed. Looking at the side of the trigger group, if the hammer rests to the RIGHT of vertical (toward the back of the trigger group) when resting on the Mcarbo spring LOOP, you have it in backwards!

If the hammer rests to the left of vertical (toward the front of the trigger group) when resting against the spring LOOP then the spring is in correctly.

This means that when you have it installed properly, you will push the hammer up past vertical and down to cock it.

I have to thank Chris for his patient explanation to help me get it right the sixth and final time. The resulting modification to this trigger was amazing. It went from a white knuckle pull to an approximate 3lb pull which breaks like a glass rod. Now I have a rifle that fires like it should. The Mcarbo spring bushings that replaces the Remington plastic POS bushings is a definite improvement as well. This will be seen when you remove the loose plastic bushings.

The money for this spring kit is well worth it!

Worth it

I have two of these rifles, 1 for each of my daughters. The first one I purchased has a pretty decent trigger and I have been impressed with the accuracy of the 597. When I purchased my second 597, I was frustrated at how terrible the trigger was. Total crap. I don't have a scale, but i have match rifles and factory glocks. The trigger had to be twice the factory glock 19 trigger pull. It was ridiculous. I could not hold a group, let alone an 8 year old. So I purchased this trigger kit, hoping it would help. After installation and a trip to the range, I was amazed at the difference. I ordered a second one as well for my first 597 hoping to further smooth that trigger out. Today is July 14, 2016 and my second spring kit will arrive today. Once installed and tested, I will follow up on that one as well. Bottom line though, these are great rifles, but without a great trigger, they are worthless.
