I also looked at the video. Am I correct in saying you don't have to remove the barrel or the buffer tube? Seemed like maybe you don't have to do that. Idono
Sorry, I missed that question.
Since I was just replacing the trigger I did not remove the barrel or tube. Additionally, I did not remove the screws from the opposite side of the pistol grip. In the video the guy puts all the screw posts back in place anyway, so I didn't see the need to take that many screws off.
My goal was to replace the trigger without upsetting any of the springs, but I accidentally bumped one of them when inspecting things and everything came off!
My other deviation was in the the way they remove the stock pin. For some reason the guy uses a hammer and punch instead of using his finger to ease the tension and pushing the pin out by hand.
