As mentioned above, there are several good videos on Youtube that describe how to both disassemble and assemble a Sig Classic Series pistol. Find one that makes sense to you and follow carefully. Replacing springs in a 228 is like a lot of things in life - easy the 2nd time. The first time you do it, just make sure you have a lot of time and aren't rushed to get it done. Reassembly can be a bit of trial-and-error the first time, especially with the trigger bar spring. The first time you attempt installing a springs parts kit, it will likely take you longer than you anticipate. The 2nd time, it will take less time than you anticipate. The last word of advice is also like a lot of things....any job is much easier with the correct tools. Buy a cheap armorer's tool kit and/or have a set of punches the right size for the job. I can't tell you how many pins I've seen that look like someone used a sledge hammer on them. Be sure you have the openings 180 degrees from each other (6-12, 4-10, 3-9 o'clock, it doesn't matter.)

Congratulations- the 228 is a sweet shooter.
I got one Feb 23 for $300, it wound up $327 out the door. It was very dirty and appeared abused and had a bad magazine. But after cleaning it up and lubing it and a new mag- it shoots great.
You will be happy with it.
