    I recently acquired a 30.06 stamped "Herters" and on th other side "Made in England" I have not been able to discover how to remove the bolt unless I dismantle the trigger group--no sign of any lever to lift the sear, which also retains the bolt.
    Can anyone help?

    Welcome to THR, DrGary.

    Chances are, the Herters marked rifle was made by BSA. It was a pre-70's import and designated a U-9 action by Herters.
    The rifle is almost identical to the BSA Monarch series of rifles. It is a unique, quality rifle.

    Here's a link to a Herters rifle on gunbroker and has pictures. Does the action look like that one? If it does, then I can only guess how to remove the bolt. The safety might actuate the release for the bolt.

    UPDATE:

    To remove the bolt, raise the bolt handle and pull the bolt about halfway back. Press forward very hard on the trigger and, while holding this pressure, pull the bolt out.

    I have found through personal experience that many bolt guns pull the bolt by pushing forward on the trigger. If you don't see an obvious bolt release on a rifle try pushing the trigger forward.

    A Herters U9 is a BSA (no connection with the Mark X Mauser, sorry, smitty) and the bolt is removed by raising the handle, pulling the bolt about halfway back, pushing the trigger hard FORWARD and holding it there while you slide the bolt out.

    Thanks to all--with two identical solutions, I am now able to maintain this 30.06
