    That's all...

    Remove the forestock. Open the action all the way. If you don't open it all the way up it won't work. The barrels will come off in your hand when you break it open.

    clemson, thanks for trying but i too thought the same..it wont. unlike a savage 311..the forestock is held by a screw only, no tension, no spring. juxt removing it makes no mechanical difference.

    I see that the Numrich catalog has an exploded diagram of the 511. I have never taken one of those down. If you think this diagram would be helpful, e-mail me with a FAX number, and I will send it to you.
