I have a 1977 Ruger 7mm remington magnum that I got from my dad and I took it apart and did a clean job on it. The bolt release on the left side of the gun is held on by a single screw and the front end of it is suppose to pull away, allowing you to slide the bolt out. It worked before I took that piece off. I didn't see anything other than the screw and the metal tab. I reassembled it and had no extra parts and now the bolt release tab doesn't move, it will not pull out to the side to release the bolt.
Any ideas? Did I lose a small spring out of there somehow?
