View Full Version : Tips on quick cleaning a Rem 700 bolt

February 14, 2012, 09:02 AM
Bought a 700 bdl .308 that needed a clean up. The bore and everything else is clean but the bolt. I've never disassembled one and hpe there is a quick method so I can shoot it this weekend. Suggestions appreciated.

Download the owners manual from the Remington website. I believe it tells how in there.

You can buy the takedown tool, or you can use a pair of shoes/boots.

Now that's pretty slick...

There is also a way to do it using a Dime. I don't have one in front of me, but I believe there is a slot in the bolt body that is exposed when the striker is pulled back a little farther than normal "cocked" position. You slip a dime in there and it holds the striker back so you can take it apart.

The shoelace trick works well.

Pull back on cocking piece, insert coin in slot, unscrew.
