My wife is laughing and rightfully so!!! Started to install a new trigger and when I couldn't get the rifle to cock, I follow CDT's troubleshooting guide. When I couldn't see if the intermediate lever has seated in the trigger, I thought I'd 'move a few things' to get a better view. Now I'm sitting with all the pins, circlips, springs and levers plus the CDT trigger in a nice little pile and for the life of me, can't get 'em to play nice and go back together. The Crosman site doesn't have a schematic of the trigger pack and all my searching on the 'net, youtube and forums hasn't provided a clear photo or instruction on how to reassemble the little monster back into a functioning trigger group.

Can anyone help, in particular with the orientation of the intermediate spring and the sear spring.

If I could see a couple of drawings, photos, etc. showing the correct placement of the springs with their partner parts, I could figure it out.

Thankyou in advance and yep I know, not the brightest crayon in the box!!!

Check with CDT as the drawings you need are by Steve the designer.

After further searching, and removing the trigger group frame from my Benjy Trail NP XL, I figured out how to get it all back together. It also gave me a chance to clean up some 'sharp' manufacturing edges and very lightly grease pivot points etc. One thing in addition that I did was pick up a brass washer and dress it down to a thinner thickness and place it alongside my trigger. I found by doing this that it took a lot of side play out of the trigger. A little bit of trial and error was needed in dressing it down as it was a bit too thick and that increased the drag/trigger pull. Now I just have to depress the piston spacer enough to reinstall the cross pin at the rear of the main tube. As I don't have a spring depressor, I'm going to try and do it with a flat bar clamp that has a ratcheting grip mechanism (don't know the official name for it). I tried but the barrel kept wanting to break open, I'm thinking I'll use a stainless hose clamp that you tighten with a screwdriver (wrapping the barrel/receiver to protect against scratching) to keep everything locked up.

You could try removing the barrel before compressing the spring, easier and no danger of damage to barrel.

good point about the barrel, what is involved in doing that? Is the hinge pin pressed out or driven out and from which direction or does it matter? I'm guessing that the pin might have a slight taper and need to the removed from a specific side and therefore re-inserted in like manner.

thanx
