Hello you all and Mr Harley:

I have a 22 L.R. Tube fed winchester model 77 rifle.

This rifle was not funtioning properly , failure to extract a round and it was extremely dirty.

I have the book on firearms dissasembly from Mr.J.B.Wood,and I followed the disasssembly procedure succesfuly.
I started assembling the action and was able to put all the components in the receiver but was not able to insert the
barrel retaining pin because the timing rod would not allow the barrel to move about 1/8" inside the receiver to insert the pin.
I inserted only the bolt with the timing rod into the receiver and the inserted the barrrel and there was no problem.

My questions is , do you Know of any reassembly tips that would help me complete the assembly?.
Also If you have any dissasembly procedure other than the one in Mr. Wood's book I would greatly appreciate it if you would be so kind to share a copy.

I don't have the 77, however, you may want to post in the Smithy Forum for quicker results.
