On I go.
The action came out of the housing.
The forestock seems to have been “repaired” at some point.
The flap of rubber/polyester/? came loose allowing the bushing to stay in place. This will need a repair.
That bushing. Notice the red line? I think that’s RTV gasket seal, possibly, which is why the screw wouldn’t come out easily.
Bushing and the two screws.
The trigger guard is riveted to the housing.
The rivet heads.
The barrel shroud. I unscrewed the magazine end plug.
That’s a long guide and spring.
The spring end.
The screw is soldered to the rod.
These two screws presumably retain a bushing that aligns the barrel. I removed them but the bushing wouldn’t budge so I put them back in.
Back to the action.
When the trigger is pulled it does several things, including moving the feed shuttle up and down.
The block that holds the barrel to the action.
four screws plus on that retains that weird tab.
What is that tab for? Note the screw heads have already seen “service”.
All the same.
Block lifts off of the action.
It’s aligned by two dowel pins.
More to come…
