Breech cleaning..

On my new, old 94, the crown is great and I want to keep it that way. I clean my Marlins from the breech after disassemble but can't seem to find online, really clear instructions regarding tear-down for the Win.
I'm very capable and can strip and reassemble my Ruger Mark 2 pistol for example but am unsure with this gun and don't want to screw up.
I guess my question is how hard is it to get the bolt out are most of you-all getting the job done?
When cleaning from the muzzle, is there a preferred bore guide that is popular?

I am a huge fan of boresnakes, and now use them on all my guns. I didn't at first, but after a few unscientific comparisons, I'm convinced they are the way to go. A boresnake certainly removes any excuse NOT to clean a gun after every use, or at the very least on a consistent basis. Of course a cleaning rod is still a necessity to remove a squib or any other bore obstruction, and if a major brushing is in order to remove a bad case of lead or copper fouling.
