    Don't have the drawings in front of me but there should be a bolt pin I believe that you need to remove,dang its been awhile. Do you have the barrel off?

    You will need a special wrench for the older ones, it is available from Brownells.

    that there are a number of wee small parts inside the receiver mechanism which may be hard to replace if lost or broken.

    Really not that big a deal. You'll need a wrench with thin sides to unscrew the barrel nut at the reciever and a small, stout punch to drive out the bolt handle retaining pin. Drive the pin out from above, and when you get the barrel nut removed, make sure the bolt is forward and locked when you pull the barrel/bolt forward out of the reciever. Go slow and watch the bolt assembly carefully as it is possible for the cam pin and the lock to come loose when they are out of the gun. Menck makes the wrench for the barrel nut, but if you don't regularly take these things apart, it seems like an unnecessary expense.

    The bolt cover going back in is what I always had the most trouble with but I think it was just me
