I have replaced the firing pin in a 12 ga. model 12 and have everything put back in correctly I believe but I cannot get the trigger group to snap back in place to finish the installation. It will just not close up enough to screw it in. I have had it almost in numerous times over hours and hours and I am at wits end. Any ideas?

Make sure that the bolt is fully forward and that it is firmly seated so that the protruding tab (firing pin lock) on the top of the bolt is depressed when placing the trigger group in the receiver. If not, you will see that the trigger group is blocked from going forward. If the gun is assembled, except for the trigger group, push the slide hard toward the muzzle which should now lock the bolt and make trigger group install without a problem.
