Hey guys ran into a problem, firstly I just wanna say I didn't assemble the lower reciever so my knowledge on assembly and stuff isnt much. The pin is sticking out which is locking the trigger. I tried to just nudge it with my finger and it doesn't wanna go in. I looked on the other side and can see that the pin is off center with the pinhole.

What do I do try to reassemble it? Any tools I need?

Check to make sure the hammer spring isnt in the way. I believe it rides on that pin.

With pressure on the pin, wiggle the trigger left and right until the pin lines up with the hole.
One leg of the hammer spring should rest in a groove in the trigger pin keeping it from "walking" out. Check inside the fire control group to make sure the hammer spring is in the correct position.

Flip upper forward, grab hammer, wiggle around til it pushes back in.

Try to straighten out the trigger with your fingers so the hole lines up and push it in with your other hand. You can smack it a couple times with a mallet or nylon hammer too. Like vintagearms said make sure the hammer spring hasn't slipped over the end of the trigger pin.

it should look like this when assembled:

Thanks worked, looked inside both of the hammer springs legs is suppose to sit in the grooves right?

some times the pin's grooves are not very deep so i chuck them in a drill and use a file to make them a bit deeper but dont go crazy with the middle one or you will never get the hammer back out
