I'd just take it to a gun shop and let somebody who knew what they were doing give it a try. I'm pretty sure many of us here could get it to work if we had it in our hands. Just saying....

I have used this approach also, only I substituted a 8 inch small wood dowel for the screw driver since it will not scar or dent the mainspring housing and pin. You have been struggling with this for awhile. RUT may be right in that maybe you are best taking it to someone for some help.

Yeah, I'm about burned out on it. Am supposed to get with a guy Thursday morning that I used to shoot PPC with. He is an ex-armourer for a large police department and he is very familiar with the MKII so maybe I"ll be shooting Thursday afternoon.

Finally got it squared away. Had to use some hammer work to get the mainspring pin to move past the rebound spring but it is back in and running smoothly. Makes me want to never take it down that far again. Maybe once a year from now on. But on a positive note, the new trigger, hammer bushing and sear made a world of difference.

Glad to see you got it back together, but there's still something very wrong here. You still may want to have someone look at it, as it shouldn't require a hammer to reassemble. Good luck!

The guy that put it back together is the best I know. As I said, he is an armourer for a major police dept. and is very well trained. I would trust him with anything. The problem just may be solved by smoothing out the underside of the pinch point on the rebound spring assembly.

Or as somebody else pointed out, try a different recoil spring assembly. I've replaced all of mine with Volquartsen's offering.
