The Remington 760 is a slide-action hunting rifle introduced by Remington Arms in 1952. Although discontinued in 1981, the Remington 760 remains a popular hunting rifle through the United States. Basic disassembly (sometimes referred to as breakdown or field-stripping) of the Remington 760 is a relatively simple task, given the proper steps and preparation.
Things You'll Need
- Large towel
- Small screwdriver
Point the gun in a safe direction and open the chamber to make sure it is unloaded. If loaded, unload the gun before continuing.
Remove the small screw in the front of the fore end of the rifle using the small screwdriver.
Pull the wooden fore end off the rifle.
Pull the fore end forward. Insert the screwdriver into the two small holes on the fore end and use it to turn the tube until it unscrews from the receiver.
Pull the barrel, bolt and carrier assembly out of the receiver. They should all come out at once. The rifle has now been broken down for basic cleaning and maintenance.
Tips & Warnings
- Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
- Always keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard while performing firearms maintenance.
- Always remove live ammunition from the room before performing firearms maintenance.
