I have an old (Sears If I remember)12 gauge pump that has the 2 front tabs of the trigger group broken off. I have put some JB Weld in place to keep it from moving up jamming the action. Would it hurt to drill two small holes in from the outside and after threading them install small bolts or screws of some type?

so this is a J C Higgins Model 20. There are (were) two little tabs at the bottom front corners of the trigger group. They apparently were intended to fit into two slots on the sides of the receiver. both of those tabs are broken off. They were what kept the trigger group from sliding up and preventing the action from cycling.

Bet TINCANBANDIT has a good source for that part.

Hope it’s not like an H&R Pardner I needed parts for. That was a frustrating quest akin to looking for unicorn earlobes.

Good luck, Brother Fox.

blue fox sir. Not having eyes on makes my suggestion more difficult. But, it sounds like I would find some steel pins, drill holes to insert the pins as reinforcement for the below product, (JB Weld makes a similar one), form the product to near the shape you need and final fit with a dremel or file. https://www.jdindustrialsupply.com/...=faststeel&utm_campaign=cse&msclkid={msclkid}

Currently it looks like this gun will become a wall decoration. the wife has indicated that a newer model replacement is something I should consider. I think she is right.

90 ain't bad at all.
a Winchester 1200 or 1300 is $120.00 if you can find one.

you can buy a brand new 1300 for about $300, if you look around some maybe a little cheaper.

So, yesterday I got carried away with myself on this. I managed to cut a small piece of steel, shaped it with a Dremel and applied some 2 part epoxy to it. Still have some shaping to fit the whole thing together but hoping it works.
