Of interest to your list?
That’s why I like Mosins. Illiterate drunk peasant can clean and re-assemble.
***** “Doesn’t matter, if you take apart your Ruger Mark II, you’ll have to take it to the gunsmith to put back together. ;)” *****
Don’t know how but I actually re-assembled mine the first time, the second time not so much... it spent a few months in a box till I broke down and surrendered her to the local expert...
Now I only shoot clean ammo through her.
How true. I have never completely disassembled mine in fear of not being able to put it back together. Since I bought it for only $160 back in 1983 it would probably cost more to put it together than the original purchase price.
How far did you tear it down?
Nice list. I’m gonna show this to my closest liberal and film the mindbreak..
I hear you. I almost lost my mind figuring out how to put my wife’s 1908 Colt .380 Hammerless back together. Had to completely strip to clean decades of neglect. An insanely difficult reassembly. I got there, but geezus.......
I bought mine in the early 1970 time frame for $29.95. They are a bear to put back together, but when you learn the trick of the positions of the various parts. It is not that hard. Like everything, experience makes things look easy.
I am not illiterate.
I clean up all the trash I drop.
I’m a healthy literate, meself, not ill-literate.
Try a Remington Nylon 66 sometime.
Making a video while breaking it down helps
Cost more to get Nylon 66 clean, oiled & put back together than it cost to buy thirty something years ago.
I have a huge phobia of not being able to reassemble a firearm after breaking it down, so mine mostly just get half cleaning. I just have visions of little springs and slivers of metal flying everywhere. It’s the result of a bad experience I had 20 years ago with a P85 Ruger.
Here ya go:
Funny. I learned to take one apart and put it back together easily.
When one of our employees brought one he bought to work to show it off , I immediately disassembled it and challenged him to put it back together.
hours later and lots of cussing, he could not get it together. Then I took it from him, turned my back and then turned around with it assembled. He reached for it, I turned around and disassembled it, and handed it back to him.
This went on for several hours before he finally learned the secret.
It can be done.
***I bought it for only $160 back in 1983***
I bought my first one for $45.00 new back in 1968. ;-D Wish I still had it.
If you want a to throw a fit, try to reassemble a .22 BROWNING CHALLENGER! It is a booger!
>”Isnt it great to live in the information age? Almost anything youd want to know, at your fingertips!”<
Unless you want access to Obama’s Birth Certificate, College Transcripts or Draft Card.
***Try a Remington Nylon 66 sometime.***
Just spray it with WD-40! That is all I do!
I didn’t see the AK-15 on the list—that’s the one Bill O’Reilly is so concerned about.
“Doesn’t matter, if you take apart your Ruger Mark II, you’ll have to take it to the gunsmith to put back together. ;)”
I have the Ruger 22/45 Lite. I’ve never sworn so much in so little time in my life. I told my husband that I ran out of cuss words. Great fun to shoot, but a real b!tch to put back together. So, off I go to the place where I got it. It turns out that they make a modification kit where after installed, you just have to unscrew one piece to take the slide off. “Great”, says I. I took it home and now I can’t get the screw to re-thread. Will go back on Thursday, I think.
Keep in mind that downloading manuals from this site will provide a ready database of which firearms you likely possess (by IP address). I thought of that too late. Oh, well, none of mine are on any confiscation lists, AFAIK. I lost them earlier in a tragic boating accident anyway and am downloading the manuals purely for the sake of reminiscing.
Download them all! haha
There’s an idea!
I do get errors on some of them but re-downloading generally pulls them down.
The guy running this is probably paying some pretty hefty bandwidth fees — I see he accepts donations.
Right after I bought my first AR-15 I took the pistol grip off to replace with a more ergonomic grip.
I forgot to capture the tiny safety detent spring that goes in the top of the grip and it shot across my workshop never to be found.
Had to wait three days to get a new spring from Brownells for 85 cents.
Wow great resource...thanks! I had an old Bersa 380 that I bought off a friend years ago and never had a manual for it until now...thanks!
In my opinion, it’s that simplicity that makes them an engineering marvel.
Install a free program like CyberGhost or Anchor VPN
Then when you download anybody watching will think you are in Hamburg or Ankara
CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!
Been trying to find a manual for my 40 year old Remington 742 semi-auto 30-06, and now I have one! Remington doesn’t have them anymore.....
God bless you!
If you bought it in the ‘70s it would be a Mark I. I have never had any issue with detail stripping, cleaning and reassembly. I guess the Mark II, introduced in 1982, has a few extra kinks that seem to cause problems.
Saved on my hard drive!
Thank You for the link!
My retirement has been working on guns for friends and family.
Mosins started my milsurp mania.
I knew there was a reason I gravitate towards Revolvers...
Wow - awesome!
You have 40 year old 742 that still works must not have shot it much.
Ha Ha I found one missing, for my Romanian M69.
But that appears to be because none exist except for an enthusiast booklet published in 2010 (which I’m going to purchase for $6.95).
Thanks for the thread!
This is true. In fact, not yet. Clearly you know something of the piece.
I knew some of its history, but as it was supposedly from original owner who rarely shot it, and is in 98% condition, I figured I wasn’t risking much to get it.
I’ll still breaking it down to do an ultra clean and lube on it as well as a closer look at the condition of the receiver before I shoot it. It looks very good from what I can see so far.
Rumors are there are many who’ve kept them clean who have had no problem with them.
Did you ever have one? You’ve heard the horror stories, I’m sure. Is the rumor true that Remington actually wanted to recall all of them?
interesting .22 trainer. Not too many of those around.
Yeah, I always get stuck with the trainers. Owned a trainer airplane at one time, have a helicopter trainer right now (but it’s just a flying model).
The M69 I feel very comfortable with, for some reason, like I used it as a kid. Very simple and straightforward and everything’s intuitive (except for disassembling the bolt, maybe). This particular unit seems to have had lighter use than many.
