Forend disassembly

Recommended Posts

I have a AYA No4 or No3 which I want to strip to stock and oil, however I can't get the metalwork out of the forend, any pointers as to how to do this?

1 remove the screw through the iron

2 unscrew the push rod 

3 at the front of the push rod tube [ known as the box ]there is a hole which will allow access to the tail pipe retaining pin .

4 When these are all out a sharp slap against the palm of the hand would free the iron from the wood .

Thanks, planning to strip the old varnish off the stock as it is pretty tatty and refinish it using tru-oil, hopefully should come out with a nice finish.

Make sure the Tru-oil is a new bottle. I have had some very decent results in the past, with a new bottle, but dire results with a previously opened bottle. Once opened and then re-used, the stuff never seems to set and is permanently sticky.

I've just ordered a tru-oil stock refinishing kit, hopefully it'll come out well, never refurbed a gun before.

Recommend you recut he checkering boarders first . This will give you a better line to work to and be easier to remove any finish that gets in there when working on it .
