    After switching from an Armalite collapsible stock to a Magpul PRS, I realized that I had mixed up some of the parts with some AR15s.

    Gunsmithing Rem 700 firing pin spring

    Is there an easy way to replace the firing pin spring in a Rem. 700 bolt. I have no problem removing the firing pin assembly from the bolt body using the edge of a desk or the shoestring method. If I remove the item (dime) in the slot it looks like it may be a bear to compress the spring to get...
