That screw is quite stuck. The one that connects the top lever to the coupler. I have straightened up the damaged head and slot and will try an impact bit driver with backup to see if that will free it.

Impact driver to the rescue. Its apart now. I don't have anything for reference but man the toggle to rotary locking bolt feels very sloppy. After everything is cleaned up I'll post up some pics and info on the fit of the internals.

Thanks for the help

One valuable lesson you are learning here is that Kroil is overpriced junk. I don't think it is much better as a penetrating oil than diesel fuel or kerosene. Just my experience, based upon all of the times I have seen totally dry threads after prolonged soaks.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Keith, I have used all kinds of shit and never could see where one worked better than the other. I get the Kroil for free so that's what I use. What do you think works best for penetrating and freeing rusty parts?

skeettx, thanks, good to know they have a few parts, I may be looking for some.

So.......I completed the disassembly of the receiver. The biggest issue appears to be a lot of wear between the rotary bolt and the coupler connecting the top lever

So much wear that there is a hole in the bottom of the bolt where the tip of the coupler wore thru.

Questions: Does the bolt usually wear or the bore in the receiver where it rest or both? With this much wear would you bother buying another bolt to try? What should the OD of the bolt be?

The trip also appears to be very loose in its bore. Here is a pic showing what that looks like. When you open the top lever you have to hold it open to open the barrel. When you release the top lever it closes partially. Looking down at the trip it just wobbles all around when you operate the lever.

I also took the Trigger group apart, cleaned and reassembled it. Looks like the trigger shoe for the front trigger is bent a bit and will hang up if you pull it hard. I will try to straighten it when i take it back apart.
