Loose action pin on Miroku MK70

    Recommended Posts

    Afternoon All

    I had the good fortune to spend this morning at the local clay ground and managed to shoot a good 150 odd clays with my MK70.  As always the gun was faultless unlike my shooting.  Whilst cleaning it I noticed a very small amount of play (about 1mm) on one of the pins at the rear of the action, see the picture below the pin in question in marked in red:

    Not overly concerned about it as the gun works perfectly but I was wondering if anyone can tell me what it is and whether the tiny amount of play needs to be looked into.

    Cheers All

    Tap in out slightly from the other side - minute drop of superglue or thread lock and tap it back.

    Thanks Gordon, not entirely sure about using superglue on this gun though, is that the right way to fix it?

    That pin is the cocking lever pin - on my Browning it had a set screw to hold it tight. You could only see it after removing the stock. On the left side if I remember correctly. (Not sure if the MK70 is the same setup but assume so.)

    Sounds like a fairly simple diy job assuming the set screw can be accessed just by removing the stock.  Has anyone had to do this on their gun? Any pointers as to the process and tools needed?

    There should be a Allan headed  locking grub screw , just above the cross pin on the left side of the action . Easy to see when the stock is off .

    DO not try superglue or  locktite  .
