    Reminton model 14

    Need to know about the half moon shaped piece that keeps the takedown screw from falling out of the receiver. How is it installed? At one time several years ago I had it figured out (I think) but I disremember.

    I think it's just a snap ring . I never took mine down far enough to make that needed .

    Not a snap ring; half moon shaped piece that resembles a tiny woodruff key...

    I believe it is staked in, but I will do my best to try and remember to check one when I ger home!

    Not staked in either. Have the part in a plastic bag on my bench from last winter. With cold weather fast approaching, want to get this rifle off the 'project' list and the takedown screw retention is the only thing left to accomplish. Thought I had it figured out (how to) last year, but time constraints prevented me from finishing. Just don't want to have to reinvent the wheel this year...

    I never figured out why Remington thought that particular screw should be fixed so it wouldn't come all the way out. Seems like it is nicer to work on the rifle if that screw is out of the way. But no, I haven't taken that screw clear out so don't have any good advice about reinstalling it to work in the way Remington intended.

    Here is a page -- "schematic" -- of the Model 14, which I hope may be of help to you. I have one missing a part I long gave up seeking: the follower at end of magazine spring. I'm not certain vis the part you query about, but later today will hopefully dig mine out of back of safe and take a gander for you. If successful, I'll edit this post and PM you.
    BEST!

    After examining mine , I think there is a TINY pin installed on the edge of the " Screw Retaining Bushing ", that does not allow the threads to pass through the bushing. The takedown screw has a flat milled along the side, and allows it to slide back and forth , but the tiny pin stops the threads from coming out of the bushing. I have never removed the screw and bushing, and think it was pressed in, and won't come out easily without damaging the threads.

    That Pederson? guy who designed these rifles sure made them complicated, with lots of intricate machine work.
