An older friend of mine just purchased a smidt reuben rifle and was asking me if I knew how to remove the bolt for cleaning. I told him I didn't but I would talk to you guys and one of you would know about it. Any info would be appreciated because if he tries to take it out without knowing he might tear something up"it has happened Before"
Thanks

Get that rifle in your hands and go to http://www.swissrifles.com/ and look up the manual for it.

Swissrifles.com is a very useful resource for identifying what your friend has, how it works, and other links.

Also surplusrifles.com has lots of info on K31 rifles and other military weapons.

the schmidt-rubin family and K31 extensions pretty much take down the same

pull the cocking ring and turn it on half-way between safety and fire. Depress the lever on the side of the receiver, extract the bolt, turn the lugs to the side to expose the lug on the bar and the bolt falls apart

Good info already. It's a simple rifle. He ought to love it. I shot a doe last year with one of mine and have won the TSRA Vintage Rifle Championship the last two years with K31s using the GP11 Swiss ammo. Great rifle. Lots of fun to carry and shoot.
