  • Field Stripping, Bolt/Carrier Assembly




    The "check lever" is really called the bolt locking lever. I didn't want to confuse it with the locking piece in the bolt.






    Your fired brass will look like this. The marks are from the chamber flutes.

    Hey...

    Whose mountains are those behind your shell casings?

      Those mountains are the Cascades, near Mt. Baker. Almost in Canada. There are bears and plenty of cougars around those parts.

          I'm in the South Puget Sound. Washington State is beautiful but currently being swarmed with "undesirables" from elsewhere

          Thanks for the thread, battlerifleman. I have a HK 91 but I'm rusty since she's not a shooter. I have a new PTR 91 coming in a few days, though

            Glad to help out.

            I grew up in Oregon. Pronounced Orygun.
            There used to be a sign on our southern border that read "Welcome to Oregon, have a nice visit but please don't stay."
            That politically incorrect sign has been gone for decades now.

              I'd like to make a couple of strong suggestions:

              1) Do NOT wait until you are out in the field to learn the initially tricky bolt/bolt carrier disassembly/assembly. Practice it at home. Do it at least ten times before you try it out in the field. Like a lot of things it seems counterintuitive at first.

              2) Do not dicker around with the charging handle spring for a simple field-strip clean and lube. Getting that spring to lay right has always been my biggest gripe about the gun, next to the long break in time for the charging handle assembly itself. If at all possible, don't mess with it unless you're at home or in the shop.

                Excellent tutorial. It has saved my butt on several occasions.

                  Thanks for posting this!!!!!!!! I dread taking mine apart! Always had to get my gunsmith buddy to refresh me. Mine is so tight, I'll have to get channel locks (2) to assemble.

                    Once you have it down it's simple to repeat. I have quite a few roller lockers so it's routine.
