    I've been thinking about ordering packers nickel mag catch and wanted to see how hard it would be to install. (haven't ordered it yet)

    So I took the plunge and started taking things apart. It was easy enough...the only problem I had was not winding the trigger bar spring all the way around to set the trigger forward. I had everything back in the grip and then realized the trigger wouldn't reset. Oops!!! Over all, pretty easy to do. I'm glad that I have a dental hook and some hemostats in my possession. They made life easier for sure!

    You can install the mag catch without taking out the frame. See my last post in the STEEL MAG CATCH thread.

    But anyways, at least you now have experience taking out the frame if you ever need to in the future.
