I've got my 97 almost all stripped down ready for my new spring this week
I'm having a hard time getting the trigger housing (trigger block is removed) to unscrew from the main tube
All the internet vids make it look fairly easy but mine is very tight
Any tips?
Can I add some sort of lube to the threads when reassembling to make future removals easier?

What have you tried so far?
There are about "3" ways to remove Trigger housing.
Will not mention on this Forum, because did once and got "Chastised".
Do another search on YouTube under HW77.
After removal and per-reassembly, apply some Anti-Seize Compound to threads.

I've tried with the wrench in the slot covered with a cloth to protect it then whacks with a rubber mallet
I have the assembly covered with towels and in the jaws of my Job mate workbench
I think I have to much covering the metal, Might need to use a metal hammer too for a sharper blow?
I'm doing all I can to protect the finish

I would use a metal hammer on the padded wrench. The assembly needs a sharp hit to break free the first time. The rubber hammer is not allowing a sharp enough impact. Just make sure you are unscrewing in the correct direction! :wink:
P.S. I put a tiny spot of Moly paste on the first thread on re-assembly, It made dis-assembly much easier the second time.
I had no problems with the rear assembly trying to unscrew itself after applying the spot of Moly.

Perhaps you can use something to carefully get a "grip" on the part of the rifle where the breech is. In the Summer 2014 edtion of Airgun Shooter Lyn Lewington demonstrates the step-by-step process to take apart the HW97K. He puts "the front of the main cylinder -- where it's flat, not the tube section -- in a vice," he writes. "To protect the action, I use cloth-covered pieces of flat wood between the vice jaws."

All cleaned up and ready for new moly and spring
Thx again

I also wanted to say that mine had plenty of lube on the spring and piston, unlike some stories I've heard of others being barely greased
