View Full Version : Help With Old .410

05-10-2009, 15:56
I am trying to get an old .410 back to working order. It is a Stevens Model 940E .410 single shot made by Savage Arms.

The problem I am facing is that I cannot find any assembly guides out there anywhere. I found a basic schematic on a gun parts website, but it has not been very helpful.

I am trying to get it put back together, but I can't figure out how the springs are suppose to go back in. Particularly the trigger spring and the hammer spring. It looks pretty simple, but I can't figure out how to get the trigger and hammer put back in so that everything is functional again. Here is a link to the schematic I found:

It looks like someone else had taken it apart and didn't know how to put it back together so they just stuffed everything in and put the pins back in. When I got it the hammer was loose and wouldn't cock and the trigger didn't do anything. After I got it apart, the springs looked fine so I figured if I got it put back together how it was supposed to be everything would be in working order. Please, any advice at all would be appreciated.

Bump. Anyone know where I can get the assembly guide that I need? Or can figure it out from the schematic?

I know this post has been dead for a while yet, but I wanted to bump to see if anyone could provide any assistance. I haven't been working on this .410 in a while and I finally came back to it.

It looks like my major problem is I do not understand how the trigger spring goes back in. I just tried to take a look at my AR to see how the hammer/trigger springs go in and I may be able to get it.

Anyone have any experience working with old .410's? Anyone know how to assemble one that has been stripped? All I have broken down is the trigger guard, trigger, and hammer. The trigger spring, hammer spring, trigger, hammer, trigger guard, and two pins are out. I just need to get the dang thing put back together.
