The holes in the receiver are now stripped and so are the 6 screws. That’s where I am.....so now what? Trip to the gunsmith, r...

Re: To disassemble or not?

No problem glad I was able to help. There is a disassembly video that’s 45min long on YouTube. It helps to watch that a couple of times. It’s really not that bad once you get in there. Just be careful cleaning and stay away from all the springs/mechanisms in the receiver. Get a wad of QTips and you ...

Ok update....I took it all the way down to trigger group/housing off and bolt out. Everything is reachable from that point. There was so much residue and crud behind the bolt I have no idea how it even cycled. After seeing what I saw tonight I retract my previous statement. It needs to come apart at...

Re: To disassemble or not?

I just inherited a model 8 from my grandfather and I took both stocks off and the barrel, was able to clean 90% of the rifle from there without full disassembly. Cycles and functions very well with no issues. I would go that route until you feel more comfortable diving deeper.

What do I have 1932 Model 8 sn 59xxx

I recently received 2 rifles from my grandfather one was a 1907 Winchester 351 and the other was a Rem Model 8. The model 8 was passed to my grandfather from his father. It has the Krieger conversion and a weaver side scope with paperwork. I’m confused when in comes to the stock which was never alte...
