    my next door neighbor, Marvin the Magnificent, dropped off this shotgun last night and the action won't stay locked wanted me to take a look at it, I can see from the outside that the screw heads have been messed with since leaving the factory was wondering if someone could suggest a site that would have an exploded diagram of the action so I can see what it's supposed to look like before tearing into it

    Dont know about the diagram but I've fixed a BUNCH of them. The problem is generally the slide lock spring, which fits onto a stud on the slide lock. It's a bent-wire spring visible on the left side of the trigger group and the problem should be obvious when you drop the trigger group.

    You MUST remove the buttstock to drop the trigger group. After removing the buttstock, drift out the crosspin at the front of the trigger housing right-to-left, then remove the cross screw at the lower rear of the receiver. The trigger group can now be removed to the rear and downward. The slide latch can now be detached from its stud on the left. The spring is riveted to the latch.

    thanks for the reply Doc, so does spring usually jump off or break? is there an "improvement" to keep it from happening again? ol' Marvin had it sold and went out to shoot it for old time's sake and this happened so his sale may have fallen through, he's got one of those last names you can't spell let alone pronounce but without guys like him Polish jokes just wouldn't be funny

    Best (and easiest) to buy the slide lock with spring already riveted to it. Not that much more expensive and worth saving the hassle.
