Is there a set of instructions for the removal and reinstallation of the Lefever stock for this model. I just picked it up and it has been heavily lacquered and I want to see if it can be gently removed. I don't want to attempt this with the stock in place.

Thanks

JOe

Maybe someone has some, but I an not aware of any such instructions. They are not overly complicated to pull apart. My recommendation is get a set of gunsmithing screwdrivers to help prevent messing up the screws ( they are not fool proof)and brass punches, take a bunch of step by step pictures as you pull it apart to help remember how it goes back together, and Take your time so you don't scratch or break anything.

Joe;
There wi;; be a slight variation depending on whether you have plate mounted sears or not. Either way I would first lower the hammers, then remove the side plates. If the sears were plate mounted they of course came off with the plate. If not remove them & their springs. The hammers can then be removed by driving the axle in enough to set one hammer out, dri9ve it back the other way & remove opposite hammer. To remove stock it is not necessary to remove hammer axle & cocking hook. Remove trigger guard then remove screws through trigger plate &/or top tang. set trigger plate out then stock will move down & back for removal.
It's been some time since I have actually done this so if anyone sees anything I left out Please Do jump in & correct it.

I think that Miller's instructions about covers it. I'd only add a couple points. Pay attention to the orientation of the sear springs since one leg is longer than the other. And there is typically a small x or mark on the right end of the hammer axle. It does matter which way it goes back in.

The advice about the proper use of good hollow ground gunsmithing screwdrivers should be heeded if you don't want to lower the value of your gun. And the suggestion to take pictures or make sketches is also good advice. Lefever stocks have some rather thin and fragile areas at the front around the hammers. Don't force or pry anything or you will end up with bigger problems than excess stock finish. If in doubt, ask more questions or see a gunsmith.

Thank you very much for the info. Keep it coming as I am currently in Florida and won't be home and ready too operate for several more weeks. More suggestions are always welcome.
