See this? This thing I'm pinching between my fingers? That's a bit of an oddity. That's the hammer. It hits that flat piece of metal that rides in the groove on top of the bolt, that being the firing pin. It's slightly odd in that it encircles the spring system and cocks on closing. This is a bit strange for a semi auto, as most of them cock upon opening.

Now, see that dual spring? A freaking STUPID piece of engineering if you ask me. One is the return spring (the smaller of the two, inside the outer one), which returns the bolt to battery, and the other is the hammer spring (the outer one). They are juxtaposed. Meaning, they push in opposite directions against each other. I could see this with a larger, more powerful caliber, but a little short stroke .22? It does seem to work. I still think the engineer should be shot. Then hung. Then shot again. With his own design.

I haven't figured out how to remove the spring system yet. The firing pin simply slides right out though.

Now, as you're cleaning the bolt, watch out for these two ridges on the underside of the bolt. They clear the feed lips of the magazine. The crevices also get dirty. But, because of the way they are machined, and maybe just enhanced by wear, THEY ARE SHARP AND WILL CUT THE FREAKING PISS OUT OF YOU if you're not careful . So sharp in fact, that I didn't even feel the cut, not until I saw the blood starting to drip, which was about the same time I got cleaning solvent in the cut and it started to burn. NOT FUN.

Now you're down to the bolt and the bare receiver.

Clean it up, inside and out. How you do it can vary greatly.

Personally, I flushed the receiver out with Carburetor and throttle body cleaner, and massive amounts of hot water. I used paper towels on a dowel to swab it inside.

A stiff bristle nylon brush, cleaning solvents, and lubricants, all applied liberally, will get it nice and shiny.

I'll see if I can find a link to the gun cleaning thread, you can get ideas for your cleaning regimen.

Now, I hope you were paying attention. If not, you can just scroll backwards through the dis assembly process, as it's reassembled exactly Backwards of how it's taken apart.

When you tighten any and all nuts and screws on any firearm, take care not to overtighten.

And you will have to take care to mate the ejector back into the bolt upon reassembly of the barrel to the receiver. Pretty easy, just align and insert. See pic.

Cleaning....

This is likely the most detailed and comprehensive cleaning information repository on the planet:
http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f35/gun-cleaning-input-48564/


cleaning tips:



Tips-for-Cleaning-your-Firearms



That should cover it...

Now, to address your misfeeding issue...
Once your rifle is nice and sparkly, see what happens. If it works, great, tell us all about your results. If it doesn't, we can work on that.

Remember, we like knowledge here. Anything that works for you, post it up and share it with the world.

Thanks so much trip286!
I couldn't figure out how to disassemble it, either.
This, and my marlin 60, are the one of the only guns I could not figure out how to break down. You wouldn't happen to know about a marlin 60, would you?

I can answer that one. What part are you having problems removing?

I need to know how to disassemble the bolt and reciever. It has never been fully cleaned, and sure could use it. It seems semi .22s are the most difficult to clean

I'll tell you this on the Marlin 60. It would be best to have a video camera running!

I am familiar with it, but I don't have one in front of me to go through properly, and it's been nearly ten years!

The first time I did it, I took it to a Smith in a Ziploc bag to have it put back together!

Pull it out of the stock, look on the side of the reciever, there's 2 pins-one on each end. Drive them out. Then pull the bolt back and lift up on the bottom of the reciever. Don't let go of bolt but ease it forward. When you reassemble it lock the bolt back first.
