I would like to take the bolt out of my Browning BL22 leveracton for cleaning.I don't have an owners manual.Does anyone know the proper method of doing this? OR is this something I shouldn't do? It looks like I would need to remove the big screw which goes through the middle of the reciever.

Nevada, the BL-22 is sort of a take down rifle. Remove the inner mag tube and set the hammer at half cock. Take out the large screw and remove the sub-frame and stock rearward. Move it slowly and put your finger throur the ejection port to hold the ejector and spring as it will be released when the bolt clears it. Go ahead and take out the ejector and spring. Tip the bolt upward at the rear, move it to the front, lower the rear parallel again and lift it out. Assembly is in the reverse. George
