Default barrrel removal.

I have a Ruger M77 MKII. It needs some TLC. I have cleaned the surface rust off the barrel but it seems that i need to remove the barrel to do the job right.

I had someone tell me that I should remove the screws in a certain order and re-install them in reverse order.

Is this true?

Secondly, excuse my ignorance but should I remove the scope before removing the barrel?

If so...should I remove the scope from the mounts and then the mounts from the barrel?

Thanks for your help?

Bill

Removing the barrel is a lot of work just to get rid of the rust! I would take it to a gunsmith and have him do it if thats what you want. If it were me, I would just take the scope and base off and do the best I could...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

s4bill, are you actually talking about removing the barreled action from the stock instead of removing the barrel from the action?

I am not sure what I am talking about. The surface rust is up to the point where the barrel meets the stock (on the bottom). I am thinking it might be on the barrel (under the stock) where I cant get to it without removing the barrel.

I am thinking I need to get the barrel away from the stock just to make certain it is not rusting.

Based on what I am attempting, what do I need to remove?

I would like to do this myself. Is there any level of experience required to do what I need to do?

I dont mind putting in the time or effort. My only concern would be jeopardizing my safety or the rifle.

Thanks
Bill

bill..Sound like all you need to do is remove the stock to get to the rust. It's not hard,just remember what screw goes were and how you took it apart and take your time and you'll do fine...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
