Purchased a very nice 1964 MB nylon with the original box to give as a christmas present for my son. Question is that when I work the action I cannot get the bolt to lock back for cleaning the barrel. Does the bolt lock back or am I not doing something right?

Bolt does not lock back.

BTW, according to the owner's manual, the rifle is intended to be self lubricating, and Remington does not recommend disassembling the rifle. From personal experience, if you DO decide to take it apart, be sure you have an adequate supply of profanity.

As mentioned above, the bolt does not lock open. Good video here for cleaning and disassembly.

Do not disassemble that damn thing.

If you do take it apart, it will go better if you cock it first, apply the safety, and keep it cocked until it's reassembled. Don't mess with the trigger assembly except to spray it off with an aerosol cleaner. Wipe all oil off the action. The nylon parts don't need it and oil just gums up the works.

+1 More on "DON"T TAKE IT APART", unless you have a need for raw materials for a floor lamp (no need to ask me how I know).

Just trying to clean the barrel from breech to muzzle with an otis kit and needed to lock the bolt back. Gun functions perfectly and have read where they do not need any oil or lube. I do not plan on any disassembly at this time and appreciate all the good helpful answers.

" Remington does not recommend disassembling the rifle"

The understatement of the century.

To properly clean the barrel, remove the "action cover" (2 cross screws hold this in place). Loosen the large screw seen on the underside of the forearm, push the barrel retainer up slightly, and pull the barrel out the front of the fore end. If you choose to take the bolt out after removing the barrel, hold the bolt and pull the bolt handle straight out the right side. This releases the bolt under power of the action spring(hence the instruction to hold onto the bolt). Resist any urge to take anything else apart or you'll be sorry.

I put a basket case one back together once, never again.
Dad traded for one, had a lot of ammo threw it. Never missed a beat. However when it was 35 below it cycled really slowly, I could watch the bolt move. As it started back home the new round would jump into the chamber well ahead of the bolt.

If you do take it apart, call Jim Starke.

Hi....I used a piece of rope from the cocking lever to the butt, tied to the correct length loop to hold the lever open for cleaning. BT

Wolfpack, I have some familiarity with these pleasant handling rifles. I just purchased another one of these and finished cleaning out the loose debris in the receiver area underneath the cover as well as the barrel (no oiling!!!). As long as you don't go any further than what "Mobuck" explained, it is a piece of cake as he describes it. I would only add that you have to pull out the charging handle to the right (firmly grasp it and it just pulls out)first before removing the receiver cover. As "Mobuck" described, the barrel comes out easily after removing the forearm screw. This will allow you to clean the barrel from the breach end. Kim
