Dear Guys,


I notice that the pre-64 Winchesters, and some made in the 1990s, have a round headed screw on the underside of the action, in front of the lever, right on the forward part of the flat toggle/link piece.


What does this screw do?


Does tightening it or loosening it do anything?


Thanks,


Mannyrock

I think you're referring to part #32 in the following schematic.


It's the link pin stop screw which holds the link pin in place, which is what the front of the link pivots on. Post 64 model 94's used a screw in place of the link pin so the link pin stop screw was no longer necessary.


I'm not too familiar with the later angle ejects.

They should not be loosened as the link pin can be lost.. but over tightening can damage the threads..
