Win 1897 takedown won't...
I picked up an 1897 Win in 16 Ga this past week. First step with a new gun is a thorough cleaning. It will not takedown. I can turn the magazine tube until it loosens but the tube will not come loose. Racking the slide does not work. Lots of CLP and penetrating oil have loosened it but it just seems to hang on something - moving a 32nd of an inch up then stops. I ordered AGI's DVD on the 1897 and it should be in some time this next week.
