    I have a Browning Recoiless with a broken firing pin.
    Does anybody know how to get the bolt out of the barrel?
    I got it apart down to the barrel but don't know how to get the bolt out?

    Thanks

    I don't know how much help this is, but if Browning has their gunsmiths at the Grand again this year you could probably get it repaired there.

    For those looking for disassembly instructions:

    First thing is get yourself a 9/64 allen wrench, as every screw on the thing is that size. Don't ask me why it's american and not metric.

    Keep the gun upright (horizontal) until told otherwise!!

    MAKE SURE BARREL IS UNCOCKED/UNLOADED

    1. Pull the screw out at the mid-point of the rib. One screw, screws into the other. Slide the front portion of the rib off the gun.

    2.Look at the right side of the gun where it says "target loads only". Right after the "Y" in "only" is a screw. Remove it. Once you remove the screw the assembly key directly on the other side of the receiver can be poked out. Now that the screw and the assembly key is removed, grab the forearm and slide it of the gun as well, while keeping the gun upright (trigger on bottom).

    3. Take the allen wrench and unscrew the bolt handle. Now look at the top of the receiver. Remember the "target loads only" statement on the right? Right about where the "G" is in "target" is a small threaded block (striker sear latch). Screw the bolt handle in it a few turns and pull it out, or at this point you can flip the gun upside down and it will fall out.

    4. With the striker sear latch removed, pick the gun up and slowly pull out the barrel and set it aside (don't worry, no parts will go flying). At this point you have it broken down to the point where you can clean the bulk of it. What I've found that really works well is, once you clean out the receiver, spray it with Rem. Dry-Lube with teflon. This stuff leaves no residue and it seems to keep the aaction working quite smooth without collecting crud.

    5. I would recommend that you don't pull off the trigger. While I could show you in 1 minute how to put it back together, it would take me about and hour to type it out. It's really not as bad as it sounds. If you really feel the need to do it, here's what to watch out for; When you remove the two screws holding it in, get a good grip on the gun and pull it off as slow as possible. There is a little spring underneath the trigger connector that could go flying. Just go slow.

    6. Once you remove the trigger, either draw a picture or take a digital pic of the three pieces still attached to the gun. They are the sear, sear link, and the sear pivot. If you decide to be brave and pull the pins holding them in, just be sure not to lose the spring under the pivot.

    7. Assembly is straight forward so I'll buzz through it quick. Just refer to the above steps in reverse for the most part. Before you begin re-assembly you should have the trigger put back together and re-installed on the receiver. The first thing you're going to do is put the barrel back in. The trick to this is the alignment of the barrel and the receiver. Look at the very rear of the barrel and you'll see a little protruding latch (receiver latch release). With the gun horizontal in it's normal position, this has to be on top in the 12 o'clock position. Push the barrel in slowly (without twisting) just an inch or so. Now, put the butt on the floor and point the gun straight up. The reason for this is, if you remember, there was a protruding rod about 4" long way back at the end of the barrel. This has to be aligned with the spring in the buttstock. Since it just dangles there you won't get it to line up correctly if the gun is horizontal. With the gun still vertical, continue pushing in the barrel until it stops. The reason it stops is it is hitting the sear pivot. What you have to do now is pull the trigger to get it to go the rest of the way in. You'll know you have it right when you start to feel the resistance of the spring. Once you hear/feel the spring starting to compress, carefully flip the gun completely around so the muzzle is on the floor and keep going until the barrel locks in place like normal (I put the buttpad under my armpit and use my body weight to compress it, unless your built like the hulk and can cock the barrel with the muzzle pointing in the air).

    8. Now your past the crucial part. Put the striker sear latch back in from step 4 and then slide the forearm assembly back on.

    9. Re-install the assembly key and screw from step two.

    10. Slide the front rib back on and reconnect.

    While this whole process looks daunting, I'll bet I could break the whole thing down and re-assemble the gun, including the triggers, in 5 minutes or less. One thing you guys might want to do is remove the ejector. I find the gun easier to work on the line with it removed. This way the hulls just stay in there instead of flipping out.

    The above tell you how to get the gun apart but does not tell you how to get the bolt out of the barrel?
    Does anybody know how to get the bolt out of the barrel?

    Well i figured it out. When I removed the rubber buffer washer on the end of the barrel I noticed it was slotted for a wrench. I put the barrel in a vice and put a wrench on the end piece and it unscrewed. I was able to remove the bolt.
