No that pin is in tthere. The action works fine (seems a bit stiff but apparently I used the wrong oil) its the trigger. It has A LOT of slop in it. Neither my Dad or I remember it having that much before...but everywhere I look online it says its supposed to be that way
I just checked mine and it has movement too. cocked and de-cocked.. Never noticed it before.. I'll check my Dads out tomorrow, he has a pre-64, Mod. 94.. got me wondering now..
Thanks. It seems like they all do. Someone told me its to prevent accidental discharge while cycling. Im begining to think I just never noticed it (not something I think about when holding a gun...dont usually touch the trigger until I fire) but once I took it apart and got it back together I went over it with a fine tooth comb so anything stood out.
I bought my Model 94 new in 1973. I have always been very careful and thorough about cleaning it. It is still in fantastic condition today. I have been able to clean it well without taking it apart. I use long Q-tips and cotton swabs to careful clean the different parts of the action. I don't use Hoppe's #9 for a bore cleaner but I have sure gone through a lot of it for cleaning the different gun parts. It is a great metal preserver. I always wipe off excess oil. Yesterday for the first time I removed the ammunition magazine spring and cleaned the different parts of that mechanism. I have never had the bolt assembly removed from my rifle but it remains very clean and intact.
