Lucky find! There is indeed a spring detent to hold the barrel up. Here is a photo-

The spring detent is the silver piece-it slides back and forth under spring pressure to latch the barrel against the rather small lug visible below the transfer port. Mine makes a definite click and does hold the barrel up on closing when the gun is cocked.

I think you fixed this in your subsequent posts, but just to be clear the BIG silver piece does not move when the barrel is closed. It’s the little gizmo under the transfer port that is the sprung auto latch.
