    Savage 64F Disassembly for barrel cleaning

    The manual that comes with the rifle is sorely lacking as far as pics and instructions.
    So here is how to do it. May also work with the wood stock.
    1. Make sure the rifle is EMPTY!
    2. Make sure the rifle is EMPTY!
    3. Safety 3rd.! Make SURE the rifle is EMPTY!!!
    4. Put the bolt forward (closed chamber).
    5. Move the safety to the Fire position and pull the trigger to disengage the sear.
    6. Pull the bolt back and lock it open.
    7. Remove the 1 or 2 stock assembly screws with a 5/32" Hex Wrench and separate the action from the stock.

    8. Remove the magazine housing screws. You need a Phillips and Flat blade screwdriver.

    9. Remove the front stud and barrel clamp. You need a 7/16" wrench.
    10. Gently pull the barrel forward, you may to give it a slight twist.

    13. DO NOT DISASSEMBLE THE BOLT ASSEMBLY.
    14. Clean the barrel and parts.
    14a. Remove the trigger assembly screw and clean the trigger assembly. (I was hesitant to do it as there was no good picture, thought maybe it would all fall apart)
    15. Reassemble in the opposite order.

    Hope this helps anybody with the same rifle.

    Here is a Youtube video I had saved for the occasion.....I like it because there is no color commentary, just a guy disassembling the rifle.




    That is a good how-to you've assembled as well. Good job !

    Watched the video. Wood stock is slightly different on the screws.
    Why he took the bolt assembly apart I don't know, the manual says don't.
    Maybe he's a gunsmith?
    Anyway, interesting. Guess I'm good for another 500 rounds before cleaning again.
    Thanks for the link.

    I usually take my bolt assy apart around every 1000 rounds. You wouldnt believe how dirty it gets in there. If you do, just pay attention. Its actually not to difficult.

    Did not want to risk it yet.
    What I did was to soak it in a glass full of 90% IPA for awhile and used a nylon brush to scrub it every few minutes.
    When the alcohol quit running dirty off of it I figured it was clean.
    Gave it a light coat of RemOil and reassembled the rifle.
    I did the same to the trigger assembly.
    Maybe I'll try it after the next 500 rounds.

    I think that means Isoprophyl Alchohol.
