How hard is it to change the  trigger return spring on a P07?

I'd say the level of difficulty is low.

I recommend good lighting, vise, needle nose pliers or locking medical clamp to reduce the number of potential "f" bombs.

Go here. Watch the video pause when you have to ,rewind if you have to. Never did any Gunsmithing or take apart a gun in my life until a year ago, but I did it with these videos. And yes works the same for po7 as it does the p 09

Just did it along with the other basic CGW springs, left the trigger bar in and used taped up needle nose pliers as to not scratch the trs.

Its not hard just take your time!

Don't forget a little piece of round toothpick to use as a slave pin, makes it a lot easier getting a trigger back in place with the spring.

A slave pin is a must.  I just found the appropriately sized drill bit and cut the smooth end off with a Dremel.  Chamfer the ends a little.  It will keep you from filling up the swear jar.

Regarding slave pin, I used a very short section of Q-Tip. I threw it in my gun toolbox, and used it again a few weeks later. I cut three or four extras, and they're all sitting in a tiny zip-loc bag with my tools.

Thanks for the tip. I got the spring ordered.

Slave pin is a must to get everything back in. I used a binder clip and cut a section of the silver section. Took about 5 min with the pin. Be careful as the pin will fly a long way if it slips.  You can guess how I found this out.  Good luck.
