    Make sure its unloaded, remove the magazine tube, and set the hammer at the safety notch. Take out the large takedown screw at the right rear of the receiver. Move the buttstock and subframe STRAIGHT to the rear; go slow, and restrain the ejector since it will be released. Remove the ejector spring through the ejection port, and pivot the ejector downward and off its post. Tip the bolt upward at the rear and slightly forward, then bring the bolt back down parallel to the frame and lift it off. The firing pin is held in by a crosspin.

    What has probably happened is your parts mechanic failed to properly re-install the ejector spring and ejector and now the spring has been crimped in its recess causing the ejector to drag as the bolt is being cycled.

    Hi Dinny,
    I have a copy of the NRA firearms assembly guide. If you wish, I can take pictures of the pages and email them to you. I think they will be good enough for you to read.

    Warpig883 ~ First I would like to apologize for the crack I made about your striker stock and thank you for being man enough not to retaliate. On another board a few months ago, I would have been burned at the stake.
    I spent Saturday morning at the Tampa gun show looking for one to see it first hand but not a single striker was there.

    Now as to the books ~
    Go to Ebay and type Firearms Assembly in the search block.
    Go to www.biblio.com and do the same in the title block.

    I check both before responding and there are plenty to choose from. I only have the NRA guide #3 for long guns and the #4 for hand guns. They have come in quite handy!

    Humbly, Frank

    procratinater, no apolagees needed. I can take a good ribbing, sometimes I do not like it at the time but I can take it. The Striker is a great shooting gun. Remminton quit making the XP about the time the Striker came out and I have been seeing more and more of the Strikers in my local gun stores. Three shots with the bolt on the left and GREAT accuracy.
    The link below is mine in .308. Savage Super Striker 516BSAK .308

    I will check out that tip on the books. Thanks.
