    Default Winchester model 67

    Does anyone know how to remove the bolt from a winchester model 67? I believe it is a 1935-1936 model as it has no markings on the trigger guard, finger grooves on the forend, a chromed bolt and a petruding take down screw. The rifle has sat for about 30 years.The wood and the bluing are very good but the bolt is a little sticky from the old oil left on it. I want to get it all cleaned up and running smooth again. My Grandfather and I were the last ones to fire it and it was cleaned and put away after that. I don't remember the take down proceedure as I was 10 then. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John

    Been a long time but I think you just hold the trigger and pull it out, may need to take off the stock but I ain't too sure.

    Yep, you're reaching way back into my memory banks on that one, but the trigger is the key. If the bolt is already open, push it forward a half to a quarter of the way, then pull the trigger and pull the bolt straight back out. I don't recall having to remove it from the stock first, but that could be yet another memory gap.

    Thank you so much! It worked like a charm. Now it's time to get her all cleaned up and running smooth.


    Thanks again,
