I never had any reason to strip it down. These guns are bullet proof. What are you shooting out of it?

Re: Browning 30-06

Its a Browning A-bolt. Very very nice rifle. To remove the bolt slide it open and when you feel resistance at the back squeeze the trigger and the bolt will slide the rest of the way out. I use Winchester supreme elite ammo in mine. If you are unsure about the process for cleaning it go to Browning web site and down load the manual. They can also help you with the age by the serial #. Hope that helps!
