    Anyone had to change out this part? The rod has a bend in it and sets against a flange that hits it to release the spring loaded plunger. Rod doesnt want to stay on place. Looks like the stock is all that holds it in place. Am I wrong? Thanks Dave

    The only rod that I can recall that is bent is the ejector trip rod. It runs through a hole in the left side of the receiver and rests on a flange on the main spring sleeve. There is a small round button welded to the side that prevents it from turning once in place. When the main spring is compressed it pretty much just sits there, when the spring is released the flange pushes it forward to trip the ejector. Other that spring tension on the flange and the stock nothing else much holds it in place.

    It is on the side of the rod where it goes through the receiver, it can be seen on the side of the rod part number 16.

    You'll probably find that this rod will need fitted to operate properly.

    At least that has been my experience.

    Yes, I have always had to fit them, usually taking a little off the top or bottom of the button.

    I normally use a small fine hand file, taking off very little at a time, using the file and try method ( 3 or 4 light strokes then try the fit). Then polish it with some crocus cloth. It should move freely back and forth in the receiver, fit it with the gun cocked and the main spiring compressed.

    If you need a rod I believe I have some spares in my tool chest.

    Thanks Dave Ive ordered a part from Brownells. When they say the part needs fitting I wasnt sure if yould need to trim some off the rod. Good information.
