Point the gun is a safe direction. Unload the rifle and close the bolt prior to disassembly (See Page 24).
To remove the trigger housing group place the rifle upside down with barrel pointing away from you. Grasp the forend with one hand. Grasp the rear of the trigger guard with the thumb and forefinger of your other hand and pull upward and outward until the mechanism is released. Lift out the trigger housing group (See Figure 32-1).
To separate the barrel and receiver from the stock, lay the rifle on a flat surface with the sights down and muzzle to the left. Grasp the top of the forend with the left hand and with right hand grasp the rear sights/receiver and pull down. With a standard rifle the stock should separate easily. If not, with the rifle in this upside down position, raise the buttstock and strike down firmly on a hard surface against the stock's comb while pulling the receiver down with right hand (See Figure 32-2).
CAUTION: DO NOT ATTEMPT DISASSEMBLY OF NATIONAL MATCH OR ULTRA MATCH GARAND WITH THE ABOVE METHOD OR THE STOCK MAY BE BROKEN OR DAMAGED.
