Hello, my name is Davin, I have a question for any knowledgeable Gunsmith or anyone who have personal experience with the Rohm RG model 31, there is this little part for this gun called the Bolt that I can't seem to figure out where to place it.

As I was opening the gun and slowly prying off the side plate to clean out the 30+ years of dust and holster debris out of it, the bolt just fell out before I completely removed the side plate of the gun.

This is what it looks like:

I have no idea where it is suppose to be seated, like at all. There is no logical location that I can see for this little part to fit in. I have opened a few revolvers before, but I've never ran across this particular looking bolt in any of them. Does anyone know the proper location where this should be placed? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is some pics of the gun as a reference:

It's my father's old gun, was hardly used but over the years it collected dust and gunk build up from his holster on the inside of it, and I really do not wish to get rid of it.

UPDATE: I finally figured it out. I did a bit of close examination of everything, and looked at the side plate of the gun and found a very small hole near the Hand breach, I can't believe I didn't see it the first million times. Sorry for troubling you all, it's just I've never seen this type of pressure bolt/guide in a revolver before so this one was a first for me. But hey that's what learning is all about, no one is born with all there is to know about every single gun design, we live and we learn ;P.

Here is a reference guide for anyone who might stumble upon a similar situation with this model of gun.
