Anyone know how to remove the latch spring on the bolt of a 592?

Service manual says: if necessary to replace latch, insert into forward end of dove-tail slot in bolt head and drive forward as far as possible. When properly assembled, latch should flex into slot when rear is pushed inward. Restake. The offspring of the author of this were probably hired by Sony to code their instructions.

Sounds like it is staked in and not meant to remove for normal cleaning?

I have a 591 that I have disassembled right down to every last screw/spring, including the trigger assembly, and I am not familiar with any sort of "latch spring". I looked at the 592 schematic on Numrich's site and could not find a "latch spring".

What are you guys talking about?

Part number 37 on numrich's site. They just call it a latch but it is a small flat spring that engages the ejector

Why do you need to remove it, has it snapped off? Those parts are 591 and 592 specific and likely very hard to find!

Correction, Numrichs is showing them in stock!

It hasn't snapped but it appears to be slightly shorter than the one on my 591. It does not engage the ejector enough to pull fired cases from the chamber. Swapping bolts fixes the problem so it doesn't seem to be an ejector problem. I have bent the latch a little an it works better but I'd rather fix it correctly. I have no idea how it got this way.

Oh, that. Yeah I had to do some tuning on mine when I installed it on my centerfire bolt head to get it to work right.
