Put the safety on, leave it on.
Remove magazine tube and any ammo.
Check chamber again, then pull charging handle straight out to remove.
Remove the two screws on the right side of reciever cover.
Pull straight up on reciever cover and set aside. Note position of bolt extension over barrel.
Remove ejector from left side of action area, should drop straight out, its the only large metal piece on the left side.
Turn rifle over, start unscrewing the barrel screw from underside of rifle. Its the only screw on the bottom.
Do not fully remove this screw yet, turn rifle right side up and push screw up to release the barrel. The barrel will pull straight out of the stock.
Note that the bolt has moved forward to contact the barrel retention piece.
Finish removing the barrel screw and remove the barrel retention band and its allignment plate from the stock, make a note of how they come out, the plate is marked "front" if you forget.
Pull the bolt out towards the front.
Remove the recoul spring and plunger.
You are basically done now, you can remove the striker, but I don't recommend it for most people, you can reassemble the striker assy so the safety doesn't work but everything else works normally, i.e. the gun will fire when the trigger is pulled on safe.
Hose, wipe, spray, whatever the rest of the crud out, and clean the barrel normally.
Reassembly is in the reverse order.
