Default Mossberg 352kb takedown help

Hello all.

I was wondering if anyone out there has the knowledge to describe how to take down the Mossberg 352kb .22 rifle. I've just aquired one and know nothing about it. Since its an older rifle, I havent been able to find any detailed info on it. Any help would be appreciated!!

Ha, and maybe I've just shown my noobness, but Basically I'm looking to be able to clean this thing out and put it back together. Perhaps "takedown" isnt the right term or not. I dont know. Its all a learning experience for me

Hi George! Welcome to the forum. When you get a minute, stop by the intro thread, and tell us about yourself.

In the meantime- OLD? HAH! I got boots older than that! Your rifle was made between 1960-1971. You can get a repro of the owner's manual from Victor & Cheryl Havlin at havlinsales.com for a few dollars. They are very nice folks, run the Mossberg Collector's Assoc, and a a great source for Mossberg parts.

This is the owner's manual for the 353- but field strip instructions should work for yours. Click HERE: http://stevespages.com/pdf/mossberg_353.pdf

If you have problems, post here, or drop me a private message. Warning- Mossberg 22s are addictive. Started with one, have about 18 of them now. I think they multiply in the dark in the safe.

Hi C3shooter,

Thanks for the warm welcome and the great info! As I'm sitting here with it, it seems like that rear bushing really inhibits the cocking handle to reverse all the way to the most rear hole. Is this correct? Do I need to remove the bushing first?

Yep. Clear the gun of all ammo, remove magazine, pull trigger to drop the striker. Remove action from stock, unscrew breech plug, get whacked in face by spring, crawl around looking for spring with the one good eye you have left, pull operating handle back to last hole, pull handle out, slide striker and bolt out of rear. Immediately misplace bolt handle so you can look for it when trying to reassemble.

Well, that's the way I usually do it!

Action is out of stock? Breech plug unscrewed? Bolt handle removed from bolt? ? Should be able to grasp bushing, pull to rear. May have to squeeze trigger while pulling gently to lower the sear.

action out check. breech plug is out although it was a pull out not a screw out-check, bolt handle not removed. It seems to not want to travel far enough back to get to the rear most hole. Thoughts? Again, this help is much appreciated!
