    I just got an 1881 Vetterli with the 1916 Carcano modification. I'm trying to clean the darn thing and can't figure out how to remove the bolt. There is a ring just aft of the chamber that rotates around the bolt, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I'm afraid I'll break something if I use more force. Anyone know how to dissassemble one of these guys? :confused:

    Yes!

    Welcome to THR, first. :)

    There is a screw on the lower left side of the receiver. Remove this screw and set it aside.

    There is a wedge holding the bolt into the receiver on the top of the receiver toward the bolt handle. Drive this from the RIGHT to the LEFT, when holding the gun at the stock end.

    The reassembly is the opposite. :)
