FWIW, the triggers between the Standard and MkII have different pivot pin anchoring set ups. The trigger pin on the Standards are held in place with an internal 5/32"E-Clip (PN-A34-1), just left of the trigger pivot point. IME, (with the e-clip having been installed from the top) a 1/16" punch pushed under the bottom open end of the e-clip will release it from the pivot pin. CAUTION, hold a closed palm over the trigger area to stop the e-clip from launching...forever (don't ask how I know)! To re-install, I use a large 5/16" flat blade screwdriver (with a slightly magnetized tip) to re-clip the e-clip back in place onto the top of the pivot pin notch!

The MkII has an installed semi-round spring in the grip right side lower (PN-KA04200). It can be pushed down from above with a very small blade flat head screwdriver, releasing the pivot pin. When reinstalling the trigger pivot pin, the spring clip will find the pivot pins notch, re-locking the pin in place!

You may not want\need to go this far with maintenance, but if you do...
