    Seeing how much I love to clean guns, all my family members decided to bring me their guns to clean. Everything was going fine untill my grandfather brought me a Savage 99 (don't know the specific model) in .308 Winchester. I took out one screw (labeled part #9 and #32 here: http://stevespages.com/ipb-savage-99.html). Then I heard a spring move. Now, a part has moved to block the hole the screw was in and the action won't cycle. I have no idea what's going on here. I researched it a little afterwards and boy did I bite off more than I could chew.

    But regardless, I need to get this rifle working again ASAP or I'll be stuck paying for a gunsmith (which I should have done in the first place). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try taking the lever out of it to free up the bolt. Remove item #23 and #41, get yourself a digital camera and take pix. along the way, or draw the guts as assembled...a schematic is good, as long as it shows the assembly sub drawings.

    Call Savage!

    Did you try turning it ...upside down? lol

    Never start unscrewing bolts on a firearm randomly. I learned this the hard way when I tried to take apart a Winchester 94 by randomly pulling out screws LOL

    Here's a step-by-step disassembly for the 99:

    I would suggest following these guidelines until you reach the sear screw, then reversing the order and it should be fine.

    Edit: wulfbyte beat me to it
