    My kid needs to pull the bolt on his Remington 742. He claims that he must pull the barrel to do so. Can this be right? :confused:

    Thanks

    that is correct. come up to my place and use my special wrench. The barrel is held on with a simple nut.

    Thanks for the offer. I called him a kid but he's over 50. :) He lives in the big city. I'll ask if he wants to drive up to the cool north.

    If he'd bring it to Salome I'd probably be able to make up something that would work.

    That must be a dandy rifle if you have to remove the barrel to get at the bolt:D

    Thanks for the info
