    as a side note the carrier assembly piece 2 ( P011064) often gets a carbon build up in it and can block the link from seating correctly , it all shold be bright shiny metal but can look like its dark metal ... this is really carbon and crude , clean well and retry

    That spring is intended as a carrier detent, to keep the carrier up or down depending on the action at the moment; the carrier is intended to stay in one place, up or down, until it is moved. Now let me see if I remember.

    When the gun is fired, the bolt comes back and trips the dog, which raises the carrier. The carrier has to stay in the up position, with a shell on it. As the bolt comes forward, it chambers the shell on the carrier, then the link trips the dog forward and drops the carrier to pick up the next shell. Again, the carrier has to stay down until it is raised.

    So it sounds like the carrier is working the way it should out of the gun, staying up until forced down and vice versa. Cleaning never hurts, but dirt or carbon seldom affects that operation as the parts are big and well out of the way of most firing crud.

    ok i gave you a bum steer , that plate is like a spring and the tension can get weak , if you put a 8 oz weight on it it should compress or close no more than 3/64" according to what i remember but here that model is illegal now ( Gun control ) but was the most popular model auto Shotty here and i had a couple myself

    there is a browning shotgun book ( sold that ) that has it in the maintinance section

    maybe google can find it or a call to your browning reseller to double check what i said , (please do 16 years since i played with one ) best of luck eh

    It is a spring; the nomenclature makes more sense if read as "trigger plate carrier spring", a carrier spring that goes on the trigger plate, trigger plate being the name given the trigger guard.
