Reassembly of the Mainspring Housing with ILS

1. Assemble the mainspring cap, mainspring, and mainspring retainer then insert into the mainspring housing. (See Figure 16)

2. Carefully depress the cap far enough to allow you to reinstall the takedown pin. (See Fig.16-1).

3. Carefully and slowly release the pressure on the spring cap until the takedown pin captures it.
