Can anyone point me to a link that describes what the sprung hook on the side of the carrier assembly does?
Thanks

There are some threads dealing with slicking the action in the gunsmithing section that can explain it better than I can.

The lever gets caught by the hook and lifts the carrier on the backward stroke of the bolt resulting in a round being moved up to the chamber. At the peak the of the upward carrier movement the hook jumps off the lever and falls to rest. That's the "shade tree" explanation.

Thanks,
I just found a similar explanation. I was confused, but now not (one hopes).

That's a great explanation, by the way - I wish I'd asked earlier in the week.
