Also be advised some of the reference material is early and dated. It may no longer be correct. There are now better references produced by others on specific firearm assembly & reassembly with fantastic photos produced for example by Mowbray Publishing, the publishers of Gun Collector magazine. See their books for sale section. There are now many fine books in print on specific firearms that have sections on assembly & reassembly that were not yet published in 2001. This link was posted as more of a historical perspective to the original forum back in 2002 when it started a surplus rifle craze. Mr Mangrum was a primary figure in the creation of the forum world of information on surplus rifles.
