Just acquired an old Stevens model 87E and I can NOT find hardly anything on it. No schematics, no take down, no specifications. All I can find is its supposed to shoot .22 shorts, .22 longs and .22 LR's. And that they made the 87 series for a long time and the E model isn't very easy to find anything on. It's jammed right now, the bolt moves back and forth slightly and I have no idea if there's a round stuck in it or not. It's old, beat, scratched and rusty....just wanna figure out how to get it functioning and if parts are available. Also having similar problems with a junk Remingon 522 Viper. I'll probably have a post on it in the near future. Any of you guys have any knowledge and wisdom OR just point me in the right direction. Thanks!!!

Anyone know if parts from the other models or any other gun interchange?

Taking for granted you have removed the stock. Soak the jammed parts in soap and water. What ever you wash your clothes with will work.....Then every day work the action till you get the results you want. Keep soakin till then......Rain water works best........

No, stock hasn't been removed yet. Squirted some PB Blast in various locations of it last night. My buddy dropped it off late last night, so I haven't had time to fool with it.

Default Don't hurry.....

Be carefull and don't force the process. Either way, it takes time for the break down of crude holding it in place.......

Looks just like my Stevens 987 don't know about interchange of parts though. Take it out of the stock and take the trigger group off (watch so you don't lose the circlip that holds the safety). Take off the cap with the safety lever off (unscrews, righty tighty, lefty loosy). Should be able to remove the hammer and firing pin. Go from there.

Great, I'll try that thanks. Unfortunately I didn't get to tinker on it tonight (went pistol shopping) so hopefully tomorrow evening or Thursday.
