Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

I'm trying anything I can to get one. Sorry to bother you. Have a good life!

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

Just that I need that trigger, mine is worn down and won't always stay cocked or will discharge with no trigger pull. I don't know if it can be fixed, it's pretty worn down.

Hi,

Your gun is obsolete, parts are no longer made for it. The best thing to do is take the gun to a gunsmith and have him build the trigger or sear back up to correct dimensions. It is possible that the sear spring is weak which will cause the same problem. Springs will usually wear before metal parts so have it checked before doing anything else.
