    How to install a Wild West Trigger Happy Kit

    I looked for this under the 'search' function and found nothing - so I thought I would write up how to do it, as I just did mine.

    1. Open the action half way.
    2. Remove the lever screw.
    3. Remove the lever.
    4. Remove the bolt.
    5. Remove the ejector.
    6. Depress the portion behind the trigger that the lever would press when closed, put your thumb on the hammer, pull the trigger and lower the hammer down to the receiver.
    7. Remove the stock screw.
    8. Remove the stock.
    9. Push the hammer spring retainer to the left side and remove the retainer and spring.
    10 Remove the hammer screw & pull the hammer out the top thru the tang.
    11. Remove the bottom action screw - just next to the magazine tube.
    12. Turn the rifle to the other side (left side) - remove the other action screw (lower middle of receiver).
    13. Gently pull down on the lower receiver piece (where the trigger spring retainer sits).
    14. Once off the rifle, look and find the small retainer pin that holds the trigger in place (really obvious). Pop it out to the left.
    15. Push the factory trigger forward - towards the barrel. Pull down and remove. It's two pieces.
    16. Push your WWG trigger (it's one piece) back into it's place.
    17. Reverse procedure to re-assemble your rifle.

    This literally took about 4 minutes for me to do. What a sweet upgrade! I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Thanks for the instructions!
    I just bought one, along with a slew of other Guide Gun parts off of a guy.
    I had a pit of a trick getting the hammer screw to line up so I had to loosen the other two screws and "work" the receiver pieces a bit, as well give it a few gentle taps with a soft mallet.  Oh and I got the action screws mixed up when I was putting it back together so the action wouldn't close (hint:  The SHORTEST of the two goes in the side!)
    Otherwise everything feels good!  Trigger definitely breaks more cleanly...can't wait to try it out.
    The floggings shall continue until morale improves.

    I'm torn between having a gunsmith work over my trigger and installing a happy trigger. Which generally gets the best results? I have about a '79 model 1895 with 22" Bbl and straight stock.

    A smith will tweak it a little farther if you are inclined. Either is a good deal. Gunsmith will do an action and trigger job in most parts for around $100 or less.

    I just got done doing my 1966 39A went a little farther than most 12oz but I'm an ex bench rest shooter and still have two with 2 oz triggers. My 1949 336RC has a 24 oz.

    What I'm saying is go with the Happy and have a smooth trigger with no flop just an easy do it your self swap. They are a good product well worth the money for the lighter trigger pull.

    Want a lighter trigger specify to your smith and ask what an action job would cost with it.

    450 Sniper,

    Thank you so much for this guide! I purchased my new 336C last week and this guide helped me install the Happy Trigger flawlessly!

    Kind Regards,

    Andy
