    There’s a very good YouTube video. Search “Stevens 311 shotgun reassembly tips.”

    I seem to recall using a slave pin to hold everything in place, then you have to hold you tongue just right and speak to it while referring to it's mothers heritage!

    I just put one back together last week. I came up with a method that used a drill press or mill. Put the receiver in a vise with the tang side up. Once you get the springs started in the correct position, lay the hammer against them. I then chucked up on a 6" long 1/4" rod in the drill chuck and centered it over the notch in the hammer. Compress the hammer against the spring with the quill of the drill press or mill till the hole lines up and start your slave pin. Move to the other side and do the same thing.
