    Need some help. Need to change the extractor, replace the ejector port cover, and clean everything out real good. Can anyone help me with the disassembly. Talked to a local gunsmith today and he basically refused to work on it. So i figured as many rim fires and bolt actions i have worked on i might as well give it a try on this one. Its not much good to me the way it is. Just looking for some pointers. Thanks

    I've had a couple of them. I used the Gun Digest book of semi automatic rifles to fiddle with them. They're a great reference and pretty simple to follow if you have a bit of skill.

    To remove the bolt, you have to remove the barrel first. Brownells has a barrel wrench especially for these. They are a PITA to take apart.
