    Hi all -
    For those of you who own a 41P .22, you know how hard getting info on them is. My problem is my bolt which has a little wing and when the trigger is pulled, hits the peep sight. I finally ponied up the cash to but the peep sight but now I have this problem. Is there a way to remove the 'wing' from the bolt? Has anyone had this problem before? I have already asked Remington with no help. Thanks in advance dudes!

    Thank you Saiga for your responses. In the last picture, the 'wing' when tightened is more vertical than the picture shows therefore the 'wing' hits the signt. The pictures and the video were helpful but mine is simply more vertical. When I loosen the bolt it seems to be more left but it isnt tight like it should be. Do you know if I can still fire the rifle safely while its loosened? Thanks again.

    Ok so I figured it out. In the above picture of the set screw, my bolt does not have one. I went to my gunsmith and got a set screw that fits and bingo, everything is aligned. Because I had no set screw, the rear of the bolt was over-tightening causing the 'wing' to be higher than it should be. When I inserted the set screw, it locked it in place right at the 10 o' clock position...which does not hit the sight. Thank you so much for your help. I dont think I would have figured it out without you. Thanks Saiga.
