Browning BAR bolt removal


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Does anyone have knowledge on the Browning BAR disassembly for cleaning? I was able to remove forestock and spring slides to remove tension on the bolt but could not remove the bolt. it seams to have a pin with spring tension that should release the bolt lever so the bolt can be removed but I could not find a position where the pin could be moved enough to release the lever. Any ideas? This was a used rifle and the bolt needs its moving parts cleaned because the bolt does not close all the way after a round is fired. Also how is the trigger assembly removed.

Trigger assembly: Remove buttstock, use stock bolt to remove the plate at rear of action--IIRC it tips out, then slide out the trigger group to the rear. You have to remove the bolt handle. This will make more sense when you're looking at the gun---slide the bolt cover so that the groove that the bolt handle is in is exposed. You will see what appears to be a latch sticking out the front of the handle--has a little hole in it. Use a piece of wire to lift the latch, simultaneously sliding the handle forward and upward. The bolt is removed thru the bottom of the receiver. Reassemble in reverse order. Here endeth the lesson. Goatwhiskers the Elder

Thanks a bunch this makes sense and should allow a good cleaning of the bolt and trigger assembly which should get the action working up to normal speed for full bolt lock up.
