    How does the trigger shoe and trigger bar come out of a Colt Mustang? The pistol is torn down, the trigger should pull straight back and out, but I can not seem to get enough clearance off the trigger bar to do this. The shoe end of the trigger bar is almost exactly the distance between the sides of the frame. I never pulled one of thes down before and the disassembly guide was written poorly. Any ideas?
    Thank you

    Bear in mind that the trigger pivots on a pin unlike a 1911 and a trigger bow. Look just above the trigger on the frame and you'll see a small (1/16") pin, best I recall it drifts toward the port side of the frame......

    Thank you Baily Boat, but I did remove the pin. I can get the trigger bar to clear the frame at the front and rear. I have tilted the trigger shoe ten was to Sunday, and that damn bar just will not clear the "U" at the rear of the grip.
