    Hello to all, I am disassembling a Browning Citori action for maintenance. I have almost completely disassembled it (removed hammers, locking block etc), but removing the top lever has me stumped.

    Any hints on how to remove the top lever greatly appreciated.

    As an aside, I am also keen to remove the free play in the trigger (pull/pull) before it fires – any hints there?

    Cheers Mike

    Mike,

    Having taken the locking bolt out, you should be able to see the bottom of the top lever. Looking here, you should see a "dog-legged" part extended from the round shaft.

    This part pivots on the shaft. Uusing a brass punch, tap on the round shaft of the top lever(bottom side). As you tap, you will see this dog-legged part begin to pivot. Continue tapping and it will pivot to the diamater of the shaft, and the complete top lever will come out the top of the receiver.

    If you remove the pivot screw holding this dog-legged part to the top lever, do not over tighten it when reinstalling. If you do so, it will not want to pivot back into position very easily.

    I do not give trigger adjustment advise.

    Doug
