Default Sears Ted Williams Model 34 Problem

Hi all,

This is my first post. Long story short this is my dads gun he sent it with me to sight the scope in and while doing so the bolt operating handle broke due to an existing crack. This however is not the problem, while I had it apart for a couple days waiting on the replacement a roomate of mine picked up the bolt and somehow while he played with it the driving spring and the driving spring guide came out of the bolt. Now here lies the problem I have tried to push this spring back in multiple times but to no avail. I'm not quite sure as to what really even holds them in. Any suggestions on how to get this back together would be greatly appreciated!!!

Ps Here is the only manual i could find, it gives a good break down of the gun. The parts that i am talking about are #16 and #17

Welcome to FTF. It looks like the spring and guiderod should just go in. I'm not familiar with the gun. Pics of the parts might be helpful.

I do not think anything "holds" it in. It presses against the back of the receiver. When in the gun it can not go anywhere.

Thank you both for the replies, I will try to get pics tomorrow and post them, I had it together and it stayed once but when I sat it down it came out again also when I first pulled it out of the gun it stayed in the bolt. Now when I push it all the way in and release my pressure the spring just pushes it back out. It would make sense that it would stay put while in the gun but i cannot insert it in the the gun without letting go of the guid pin and then it just shoots back out. For a little spring it is actually quite stong and hard to push in all the way as well. Maybe Im making it harder that it needs to be haha

So funny story lol You guys were right as well as me saying "Maybe Im making it harder that it needs to be" I put the bolt in at an angle and compressed the pin\spring in and slid it down the back of the reciever and viola!! Super simple, the part that confused me was the it was actually was stuck all the way in the bolt when i disassembled it. Im guessing by how dirty it was that it was being held in there by gunk! I have it all cleaned and put back together and it works great, Now to go finish what i started by actually shooting it and sighting it in! Thank you both again for your replies they turned the light buld on upstairs

Glad ya fixed it , And welcome to FTF. One thing did confuse me though .

I wonder why sears made the Ted Williams model number 34 instead of number 9. I assume they are referring to Ted Williams who played for the redsox? His number was no9 and I know because the redsox are my favorite ball team seeing I'm orig from RI and I had a 249.00 custom jersey made with ted williams number because when he retired after 16 seasons in I believe 1960 they also retired his jersey so No 9 wasn't avail so I had authentic stiching from the Co that does the stitching for the redsox make that jersey for me.

Wonder where they got 34 from. Bizarre

Sears used the Ted Williams name for several years on many different guns.

And Scopes...and a lot of other things...

Ted Williams was a Sportsman after he retired from Baseball...he loved nature!!
And it didn't hurt that Sears was willing to pony up some serious cash for the use of his name...
