Remington 700s are one of the most popular bolt-action rifles on the market and for good reason. They’re reliable, accurate, and relatively affordable. But like any firearm, they require regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly. Fortunately, removing the bolt from a Remington 700 is a relatively simple process that can be done at home with just a few tools.
Start by making sure the rifle is unloaded and there is no magazine inserted. Next, locate the two screws on the side of the receiver (one above the trigger guard and one below). These screws hold the stock in place and also serve as adjustment screws for the trigger pull. loosening these screws will allow you to remove the stock and expose the action.
Once the stock is removed, take a look at the bolt stop assembly located on the right side of the receiver (as you’re looking at it from the rear). There will be a small pin holding the assembly in place. This pin needs to be removed to take out the bolt stop assembly. Be careful not to lose the small spring and detent located under the pin.
With the bolt stop assembly removed, you should now be able to pull the bolt out of the receiver. Be careful not to lose any of the small parts that are attached to it, such as the firing pin and extractor. And that’s it! You’ve now successfully removed the bolt from your Remington 700.
Now that you know how to do it, be sure to keep up with regular maintenance on your rifle by taking the bolt out and giving it a good cleaning every few months. This will help ensure that your Remington 700 continues to function reliably for many years to come.
First, make sure that the gun is unloaded. Next, locate the release latch, which is located just ahead of the trigger guard on the left side of the gun. With your left hand, firmly grasp the bolt handle and pull it back until it stops. Rotate the handle counterclockwise until it lines up with the release latch. Depress the release latch and continue rotating the bolt handle until it comes free. You can now remove the bolt from your gun.
When reassembling your gun, make sure that rotation of the bolt handle is again halted by the releasing lug before the handle is turned down into its final locked position. If not, the handle could snap off.
If you’re looking to remove the bolt from your Remington 700, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind. First, make sure the gun is unloaded. Always err on the side of caution when handling firearms. Once you’ve verified that the gun is unloaded, you’ll need a tool to help you remove the bolt. A small screwdriver or punch should do the trick.
With your chosen tool, insert it into the slot on the underside of the bolt and rotate it clockwise. This will release the tension on the firing pin and enable you to safely remove the bolt from the firearm. Keep in mind that if your Remington 700 is equipped with a scope, you may need to remove it before you can access the bolt.
Assuming you are referring to the rifle’s bolt handle, there are a few ways to remove it depending on what you are trying to achieve.
If you just need to remove the bolt handle for cleaning purposes, simply unscrew the knob at the end of the handle. This will allow you to pull the handle out far enough to clean behind it. Just be sure not to lose the spring that sits behind the knob!
If you need to completely remove the bolt from the rifle, this will take a bit more effort. First, remove the scope (if applicable) and set it aside. Next, use a punch or small screwdriver to push out the retaining pin located in front of the trigger guard (shown in the photos below). With the retaining pin removed, the bolt can now be pulled out from the back of the receiver.
