View Full Version : Weatherby Mark II Italian Disassembly Inst.

I have a Mark XXII that has never been so called field stripped, if that is indeed possible by the average guy. The bore has been cleaned but only wiped for the receiver and trigger mechanisms. I know how to field strip an M1 Garand and an M1 Carbine. Misplaced the instructions many years ago, if there ever were any. It is fast approaching squirrel season in Tenn. and I am itching for some squirrel gravy.

Bob, try the follow steps:

1. Remove the action from the stock.

2. Push out the cross pin.

3. Push the trigger group about 1/4 of an inch to the rear and then down to remove it. It may need a little tap with a mallet.

4. The bolt handle is held into the bolt with a ball detent. Pull out on the bolt handle and it will come out of the bolt.

5. Pull the bolt a little to the rear and lift the front of the bolt out of the receiver while controling the recoil spring.

Hope this helps!

I got as far as the spring loaded cross pin, but I suppose after twenty odd years of goop on the assembly it would be stuck. I think the mallet is in order. I shall dedicate the first batch of East Tenn. squirrel gravey to you.
