Hi,

I aquired a Rem 582 recently that my father-in-law bought brand new about 30 yrs ago, stuck it in tjhe closet and forgot about it - it's never been fired.

Onto the problem the trigger will not opperate. I don't think it is corroded as most parts wiggle and not signs of corrosion can be seen.

My only hunch is a pin is preventing the safety from moving from the "safety" position due to pin.

The only thing i can think is the pin had to be removed first before it could be fired (is this an ultra safety feature for first time shipments from Remington - I'm really reaching at this piont!).

Any guesses as to what to check.

Thanks,

Paul

Well,

Just and update. Disassembled the trigger - and it was just 35 year old grease that had become morter in between the bricks. Thorough cleaning and it's a smooth relatively low creep trigger - a tad heavy on pull but not bad at all.

Best Regards.
