Question Small Mysterious bushing loose in trigger group

Hey guys.

Could yall post a few pics of inside your trigger group? Around all the linkage and such.

Mine would not fire and the safety was acting weird.
I dissembled and found a little steel bushing lodged inside the safety. I cant figure out where it goes.
Thanks,
III

This should get you going. About halfway down the page. Another pic is on the next page.

Also wait for a member here, Al "bite the head off a smelt" the infidel" he's a pretty sharp 597 guy...

There are many others but hey, I want advice from a guy who bites the heads off of fish, don't you?


(seriously, any of the 597 guru's might know if you can't find it on the diagram)

It sounds like the linkage bushing came lose,which seems to be getting more and more common. I don't think that there's a good do it yourself method of fixing it, either. Might be worth a shot to give Remington a call. They've sent a few RFC members new trigger groups.

Keep the old one, "just in case" for parts, and you will have 2 hammers to choose for pull weight.

I hope you're patient. I've been waiting four months for my replacement trigger assembly (warranty replacement), which is still on back order. About a month ago they agreed to send me a call tag to ship my rifle to the Tulsa, OK repair center, but they don't have any, either I put a dab of epoxy on the bushing and pin, to hold it on.

Some have had good luck by jury rigging it back in place by skwishing it and using some sort of glue or whatever to hold it in place; others not so much. One poster was told by a Rem techy they got a bad batch. Try to fix it while you wait unless you are very patient.
