Disassembly

1. Remove the magazine from the buttstock by turning the Magazine plug handle about 1/8 turn counterclockwise and then pulling the inner magazine tube out rearward from the outer magazine tube

2. Begin to takedown the rifle by loosening the takedown screw on the rear of receiver (see Figure 5). To prevent dropping either half, it's a good idea to do this with the rifle laying on a table, on top of a padded surface like a soft rag or other non-marring protection.

3. Separate the gun into two halves by pulling the butt stock to the rear and forearm to the front (see Figure 6). Your rifle is now in two compact halves.

WE RECOMMEND THAT YOUR MODEL 63 NOT BE TAKEN APART FURTHER THAN THIS. THERE ARE MANY SMALL, FINELY FITTED PARTS, SMALL PINS, SMALL SPRINGS AND SPRING-LOADED PARTS THAT CAN EASILY BECOME DAMAGED OR LOST. SOME REASSEMBLY PROCEDURES REQUIRE SPECIAL TOOLS AND AN ADVANCED LEVEL OF EXPERTISE TO ACCOMPLISH. IF YOUR RIFLE SHOULD NEED FURTHER DISASSEMBLY CONTACT ONE OF THE AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTERS ON THE LIST ACCOMPANYING YOUR RIFLE.
