Any suggestions on how to release the trigger lock on my fire arm without using a key ? I have misplaced my trigger lock key - cannot find the duplicate either. Its on my .22 so its not that urgent, but I would like to remove and replace said lock soon.

Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated...........any S.A. comments can be left on your side of the keyboard......

Thanks.............. :oops:

What kind of trigger lock is it? If it is one of the cheaper ones you may be able to drill it out. Start will a small bit and go bigger and bigger it may unlock!!

If you are not in a hurry and it is a master lock trigger lock you can contact master lock and give the code on the lock and they can send you a key for it. Or maybe you can try a locksmith.

It's weird but a few of my trigger locks can be opened with the "wrong" key. Try fiddling with another key. They aren't super locks; just meant to slow down someone in a hurry to shoot someone else.

The catch on the lock can be pried back with a small screw driver or pick if it's not on too tight, maybe use another trigger lock as a reference. It doesn't wreck the lock. Was shooting with a guy once and he had to do it.

Thanks. This might be the best alternative....or at least my starting point. I have dental picks that are quite strong and very well designed for tight spots.

Never had to try it, but I've been told that if you grab each half of the trigger lock with vice grips that you can actuall just twist them and they'll come apart. :?:
