Have a Savage model 58 in for work in our shop and I need some information on how how to take it apart. There is a bolt pin that I have already taken out however it still doesn't pull apart. If anyone have any information on how to take it apart the rest of the way, we would greatly appreciate it.

If you have the pin out, then it's probably just braded togeather. Give the bolt cap a good hard twist, that should free it up.

I ended up rapping it with a mallet a few times to get it to come apart. It was so full of crud on the inside that it just was really stuck.
