Have you checked on Minnesota Trapline Products website? I haven't been on their site for a long time but they used to have some videos on there about different things if I remember correctly.

�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

The guys at MTP told me to bend the end of the frame out where the dog is.I didn't do that, I just pried the spring pin over the dog, my spring pins are stock length not cut down. And I had the 3 bolts loose.

Yeah, they are not easy to put back together. Found that out a few weeks ago when I put new base pieces on two. I also forced the spring pin over the dog. First one took quite a while. Second one about 20 minutes.

I don't own any Mb550's... but if it goes together that difficult- it comes apart that hard also, sounds like a quality design.
