You are watching: How to remove bolt from remington 770

I just bought a remington 770 in 30-06. i took apart the bolt to clean it and when i reassemble it i could not get it to go back in to the rifle. i think i may have assembled it the wrong way becuase the firing pin is sticking out. i tried to take the bolt apart again but now it seems to be stuck. any help would be great!

Welcome to the forum Nicolaih. Rules are simple, be nice and join in.Boy what a problem. I"d check to see if there"s a certified Remington maintenance center near you and have them take a look at the rifle. You don"t want to damage an investment like that. I shoot Remingtons, but the 770 is one I"ve not had any experience with. Perhaps some of our members can help you out here.

I think your bolt is the same as the 700 uses. My first guess is that the firing pin is uncocked. There"s a piece on the back end of the bolt about an inch long that has two lugs sticking out of it, front to back and 1/8" high. Look at the end of the bolt with the handle at the 4:30 o"clock position. If this piece with the little lugs is at the 6:00 o"clock, the firing pin is uncocked. To cock it, clamp the little lugs in a smooth jawed vice and lift the bolt handle to the 1:30 o"clock position. ByeJack

I"d be inclined to agree with Jack, I"ve done the something similar with a Model 70 bolt, it is kind of a pain to fix, firing pin springs are strong

Jack has the right answer as I have done it a number of times and the first time I did it I took it back to the dealer and I think he had a chuckle. Jack would know him as he was a old gun dealer (Percy).

I dealt with Percy a bit, but that was a while back, all right. W.D. Stewart set me up for reloading back in 1968. Did you ever get out to Al Peterson"s at Riverhurst? ByeJack
I never dealt with Al, but I spent alot of time with W.D. and I have a couple of reloading manuals he gave me. He was real close friends with my uncle and my boss Harry Deugua. When Harry passed away I helped a bit with his collection and if I remember right he had over 10,000 rounds of reloaded centre fire ammunition.He also had the sweetest pairs of 88s I ever saw 1 was in 243 & the other was in 308.Jack another old deal was Elmer from Rosemont Hardware or Mic from Frances.It sometimes fun to see if we can remember!
