    Question Broken cocking head on Remington 41 (single shot .22 rifle)

    I was checking out an old rifle that I found buried in the attic of the log cabin my wife's grandfather built, and i noticed that the pin on the cocking head (I think that's what the part is called) was missing, and the bolt would not cock when cycled. I can fire the gun by pulling on the safety and cocking it manually, but ideally I'd like to fix the gun. Is this a part that may be commonly available, or am I going to be busting out the welder and the mill?

    Some of the old bolt guns cocked by pulling back on the "head" of the bolt. It also doubled as a safety , as it needed to be cocked to fire. Maybe find a few pictures or exploded diagrams and determine if any parts are missing?

    I own 2 Remington model 41's...yours is not broken, you do have to manually cock it. One of the ones I own is the first firearm I have ever fired.

    Thanks Greg! If you remove the bolt, it looks like there's a 3/8" diameter plug in the bottom of the receiver that was supposed to have something on it to cock it when the bolt is run forward. I suppose I was looking too far into it and it really is as simple as it looked.

    I too have a Remington Model 41. The model is a maunally cocking bolt action. I think the model was made for 3 years in the mid to late 1930's. Good ol' rifles they are. I had mine out recently to do a sight check and it sure is a nice .22. A varmint or critter would be in dire straits within 50 yards of it.
