Unsure how to dis-assemble a Winchester 62
(pre-war, not post-war 62A) that I just bought.
Thought that I could remove the fore-end wood by removing the two side screws, but it's fitted too tightly around the magazine tube and I am afaid I'll split the wood if I force it. Can't decide if the outer magazine tube is screwed into the receiver or not, and the diagram at http://www.urban-armory.com/diagrams/rosi62.htm
really isn't clear enough to show it.
Does the outer magazine tube unscrew from the
receiver; or do I just drive it? (pull it?) clear of the receiver and press the two magazine tube rings out of their dovetails on the bottom of the barrel?
The magazine plug (closes the outer end of the inner magazine tube) looks like it unscrews from the inner magazine tube, does it? Are the threads right or left handed?

Chris, I have those instructions. I'll scan and e-mail them to you. If you don't get it by Tuesday, e-mail me and remind me. The threads are right hand. George
