    Hey all, need help finding a gunsmith that could fix this for me. I know the quality is poor, that's a phone camera for ya, I didn't feel like dragging out the DSLR for this. Anyways, this is the bolt release mechanism, and it looks like some rivet or solder or something that holds it in place has busted, so whenever I pull out the bolt I have to pull the stock off to reset the catch. It's not critical, but does anyone know how I can fix this or know a good gunsmith to recommend in the Portland/Vancouver area?

    Thanks for the help! Issue resolved! It turns out the pin was either broken and someone tried to fix it with super glue, or the pin had been set in too far and someone had tried to fix it with super glue. Either way, I got it fixed and it works perfectly now!
