    Winchester 1902 .22LR Bolt Falls out.

    As the title says... When I jerk the bolt back to make a case eject, it sometimes falls out. Any fixes? I tried adding more tension on the leaf spring but that just makes it harder to eject.

    This gun probably isn't worth much, but it was my grandfather's trapping gun. As you can see he added fishing line to hold the bolt in probably 50+ years ago. He passed when I was around 10 , so im trying to keep the gun intact.

    You might have noticed that there is tape around the barrel. Well legend says that he owned a .22 with a hole in the barrel. None of my uncles (dad's brothers) know if it's this one. My grandpa put the tape there for some reason and im reluctant to take it off.I HAVE SHOT IT AND IT SHOOTS FINE.

    Also my uncle carved the bird looking thing in the stock when he was young... He's almost 70 now.

    .

    IIRC, the extractor doubles as a bolt stop when the bolt removal process isn't done, and so you may have a worn extractor/sear assembly, or something inhibiting it's full travel.

    If you watch the extractor as you pull the bolt back, you'll see just at the end of the rearward bolt travel, the triangular extractor will come out of the notch in the breech face.

    Bolt removal normally involves push the back end slightly forward, and gently pull the bolt back, stopping just before the extractor comes out of the notch in the breech face, then pulling the trigger to remove the bolt to the rear.

    Here's a sear/extractor assembly F/S: http://cfnparts.com/Winchester%20Mod...roduct_id=5068

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    Check the engagement surfaces and see if they are rounded or worn. The bolt stop and the bolt notch both have to be clean and sharp. Commonly one or the other is worn rounded and working the bolt hard will cause them to ride over.

    The bolt stop, if I can call it that was warn out. So much so that it was concaved in.So I took my MIG welder, put it on the lowest setting and filled it the missing part. And filed it back into place.

    You could probably make brass for it.

    If it is smooth bore it could be a garden gun and they still make ammo for it, I just had a box pass through the shop last week.

    I have an identical rifle, except mine is labeled a 1904. There must have been a series of identical models offered in that era. Brings back old memories for me, as it was gifted to me by my grandfather in the 1960's. Shot mostly with birdshot and CB caps. It patterned pretty good with birdshot. Not much rifling left. You have a classic rifle there, that is worth repairing and hanging on to.
