    Title pretty much says it all. I have a 120 that I wanted to take apart to clean and after I pull the pin out, the trigger assembly seems stuck. It'll wiggle a slight bit but it doesn't want to come out.

    It is a youth model so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

    If anyone has any tips or recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

    Is the hammer cocked?

    The 1300 owner's manual I am reviewing indicates that is step one before removing the pin to pivot the trigger assembly downwards.

    Sliding the action half way might help you if not already tried.

    Thanks. I ended up resolving the issue... Turns out, it was gummed up enough that it didn't want to slide back enough to pivot out. Once I decided to get "rough" enough with it, it came right out.
