My Great Uncle (the original owner) asked me to clean his rifles. My current project is his Remington Sportmaster 341 and I need a bit of help.
I have disassembled the bolt and carrier and cannot put them back together. The problem is that I cannot reinsert the rear most pin. It looks like the mainspring needs to be compressed in order insert the pin.
I have ordered a manual from Numrich Gunparts, but have not received my pdf. Also, I have looked at the schematics from the US Patent Office website and they appear to match my assumption above.
Is there a special tool to do this or tip/trick that I do not know about?
If you are wondering why I made this mistake, I thought the bolt would need a bit of attention. The bore was so dirty that 2 hours with my cleaning rod and patches/solvent/brush crud was still coming loose!
