Aw, shoot! Just tested mine with a magnet, and it's MIM, too. See how misinformation gets started .

Could the "up and down" linkage direction be part of the problem?

Yes, that pivot joint I am pointing to with pen is supposed to only bend up. There is a folded over tab that keeps it from bending down provided there is a lock collar to hold it together.

I found that a 4-40 nut was a press fit onto the pin. Used a vise to press it on there and then tried to mushroom the end of the pin with a punch and hammer. Also added a tiny drop of red loctite to help secure it. Need to test fire the gun now.

I remember shooting this rifle once when I first got it. It ran okay for a while, but then started having the trigger lock up issue.

I was thinking about how a guy could make that little donut piece of metal to repair the linkage. Now I know!

Not yet. Was planning to go to the shooting range Wednesday but that norther blew in right as I started to load the truck. It's a 45 minute drive each way for me, so decided against it. Firing line faces west so I would have had blowing rain in my face at 40 degree temps. Would not have been a fun day.

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and 60 degrees with light wind. I've got 5 rifles and my range box all packed and ready to go.

Got back from the range a little bit ago. Rifle functioned fine with both mini-mag and SV. Just took it apart to check the 'repair' and the nut is still in place. Going to clean it up and list it on the local gun trader site tomorrow. What does a plain Jane gray tuperware stock rifle with no iron sights usually go for these days? I was thinking of asking for $125 and maybe get a quick sale on it.

Thanks for the Rem info 454.

I'm kinda reluctant to give any advice per selling your rifle what with the repair and how well it may hold up or not. If you make a potential buyer aware of of the repair the $125 wouldn't be a bad price IMO.
