    Hi: I acquired a 1942 winchester '94 with a screw missing. It's on the upper front left side, 10-36 thread, maybe 5/32 long. I haven't found a readable schematic so I don't know what the screw is supposed to do. Maybe hold a "trigger stop" that's also mising, but there's no room on the inside because the breech bolt is flush w/ the inside and there's no clearance for anything. Does anyone know what it is & where I can get one. Thanks, Mous

    This is for a post ‘64, could it be one of these? Pictures would be a big help. I’m having trouble understanding “upper front left side”.

    The screw on the left side of the gun at the top and front is a plug / retainer for the bolt to lever pin. It has a small hole aligned with it on the right side so you can drift out the pin. There is a small chance the pin could drift into the hole and jam the gun without the screw in place. In the just posted diagram it would be no. 22

    The lever pin is removed by inserting a punch on the right side, you want to replace the plug as any lateral movement of the pin will jam the action.

    Excellent diagram - I've got my Dad's 1948 version, and that fits perfectly. I'm glad you found the document you need!
