Remington 81 bolt hold open lever

Post by River Ranger » Wed Mar 31, 2010 12:49 pm


Is the bolt supposed to hold open on the last shot?? I have one that the trip lever works, but has to be it has to be engaged by hand. Is this proper??

Thanks in advance--River Ranger

Yes, the trip lever (otherwise known as the magazine indicator assembly) when manually depressed will release the bolt/bolt carrier to its forward position. The bolt/bolt carrier should always lock back after the last round.
