Magazine Tube Removal From Browning 1886 Rifle

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Can someone who is famliliar with this rifle tell me how to remove the magazine tube? I see two screws in the forearm cap which obviously should be removed and the screw in the magazine cap. Anything else I should be aware of?

1886 mag tube

I just dis-assembled a vintage 1886, much caked on crud. There are some variations. The mag tube cap may have a "tab" that fits in a slot on the barrel. The tube should turn easily after screw removals, mine did not. I applied penetrating oil to the hanger ahead of the forestock and the forestock cap. After that I rotated and twisted it out without using a lot of force. Mine was really caked in with crud. You twist the hanger in front of the forestock to remove it from the barrel.
