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 clean all my lever guns from the muzzle. Marlins included. Each time you take them apart it introduces a bit of wear to the screws. It's not needed for every day cleaning.
I use a multipiece steel rod made by Kleenbore and an brass cone shaped muzzle protector made by the same company. It works very good and I do not risk added wear and tear by taking the gun apart for each cleaning.
