I just took a more careful look at my HW55-it appears that the lever latch adjustment will also snug up the spring detent.

Here's a link to an article on adjusting the latch-

And a picture of the adjusting screw-

The screw is turned counterclockwise to tighten the lockup latch. From what I can observe the detent lug fits into the round hole in the silver bar and is sprung so that it moves back into the breech block as the silver bar passes over it, then springs back out into the round hole in the silver bar to hold the barrel up while the lever is latched. Hope that made sense!
