Just got that Sporter carbine and want to clean it good. Before I break anything, how do I remove the barrel assembly from the stock with no barrel band? Seen the barrel band Model removal but not the Sporter stock. Any and all tips and additional info you can suggest will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Greg

Also wanted to say this is a great and welcoming site. Glad to be a part of it!!

I'm thinking it's the same procedure, minus the barrel band.


1. With the rifle pointing in a safe direction, remove the magazine, open the bolt
and visually make certain there is not a cartridge in the chamber.
Then allow the bolt to close. The rear sight leaf should be down, and the hammer should
be cocked.

2. Loosen the barrel band screw (B-69) and remove the barrel band (B-68). (Does
not apply to non-barrel band models such as the Sporter and Rifle Model.)

3. Use an appropriate size Allen wrench to loosen (don’t remove) the take-down
screw (B-65).

4. Position the safety so an equal amount of the button is exposed on each side. If
the safety is not in the middle when the barrel-receiver assembly is lifted out
of the stock, the stock will be damaged.

5. Swing the barrel-receiver assembly upward away from the forearm of the
stock. Be careful the two receiver cross pins (B-5) and bolt stop pin (B-46) do
not fall out.

6. Place the safety in the “ON” position. Remove the trigger guard by simply
drifting out the two receiver pins. It is recommended that the components of
the trigger guard assembly not be disassembled from the trigger guard.
