Hi, A brother-in-law recently was given a 341-p that has been hidden in a wall since 1962. His friend tried to load a lr thru the breech, it jammed and almost broke in half. The bolt would not cycle and they could not get it out. Since the rifle was in a far from clean condition and jammed up I told him I would take it apart and clean it up for him. Everything was going along fine after extensive cleaning it was time to put it back together again. I went to numrich and found the (schematics)PDF which is really a partial parts list picture. Anyway to make my long story a little shorter, I found that I had a few extra parts. They consist of the Carrier Friction Spring Case, Carrier Friction Spring Plunger and the Carrier Friction Spring. I remember them being on the end of something during disassembly and thinking of how they would be to back in place(senior moment?) but cannot for the life of me remember where they go. On the bolt assembly, sear-trigger assembly or somewhere on the carrier? any help would be most appreciated. Would it be worth the trouble to get the manual from Remington?
Thank You in Advance

Are you refering to the little "button" spring loaded thingy? If so, it goes in a hole in the left side of the carrier. As you remove the carrier to the rear, it will pop out unless held in as the carrier is removed. When you slide the carrier back in, it will need to be held in against the spring tension.

Yes, that is the thingy. I kinda thought about that because of the hole size. Does the contraption help in the cycling of bullets from the magazine to the breech? I will have to pop out them pins again. I cannot think of a way to replace it without removing the carrier completely? I can cycle the LR except the last one gets caught up when you move the bolt forward after eject, it appears as though the slide comes toward the bolt and will not move forward unless you tilt the barrel towards the ground. I wonder if I should replace the thingy with new parts?
Thank You Again for you help I would have stayed up nites wondering!!!

You will have to take the carrier back out. I'm not sure, but I think it just provides a little resistance to the movement of the carrier.

Probably for the very reason illustrated above--to keep gravity from positioning it wrong, so the gun will work in all orientations.
Anbody who believes in gun control should be taken out and shot.
