1958 Mounty



Log in to see fewer ads
Ok so I stumbled onto a very nice 1958 Mounty and itís in very nice shape with a couple minor flaws. One of the flaws is that the lever does not stay tight against the stock like my other Mounties do. It droops. I know Iíve seen some other folks inquire about this over the years but I canít find any of the old threads. If anyone could direct me to a thread or know what part I need to look at I would be most great full.
Thanks!

There's a small screw in the bottom of the receiver in front of the lever. This screw holds the spring that puts pressure on the lever boss.
First check and see if the screw is tight. If it is then you have at least two choices.
Order that small piece of spring steel.....or slightly bend the one you already have to put a bit more pressure on the lever.
A small adjustment goes a long way. When you get it open it will become clear when you watch how the spring and lever work together.
Have fun with your new Mountie.

Cub308, thanks for the insight. If that screw is tight and more tension needs to be added via bending the spring a bit. Is there a set step by step procedure for removal and reinstalling?

Your Mountie is a very simple mechanical device.

Separate the two halves of the receiver and you'll be able to figure it out. It's not a Nylon 66.

Once you open the receiver you'll see the spring that holds the lever closed. Not a coil spring, more of a leaf spring.
It will be an easy fix.

Definitely not a Nylon 66....I've been into one of those...


But working on a Nylon 66 is actually easy....if you have two heads with two sets of eyes and three sets of five thin nimble fingers and a memory like four elephants.

These are nice guns. I have a '58 sitting in the safe....unfortunately, I don't seem to find time to put it to use. It will most likely get passed on to one of the kids.
