    Remove the c-clip, note how spring is installed, pull pin out, remove old cover, install new cover with spring, replace pin, replace c-clip.

    What is the best way to remove that small C-clamp without losing it?

    Small hemostats?

    Just been warned that those little C-clips disappear easy!!!

    Just don't want to have to remove four FF tubes and barrel nuts to swap out those ejection port covers.:steamed:
