I've just done a bedding job on a M70 using Devcon As I've not done one in quite a while, I'm a little nervous on how the initial removal of the stock will go. Any recommendations on procedures you've used successfully for first removal. Also, how long do you allow for curring prior to removal? Thanks in advance.

24 hours.
Whack the receiver with a big plastic hammer. Several ways to remove the receiver; make a puller that fits over the stock. Put the guard screws in and tap those.
I always just tap the comb on the bench and hold the barrel. Resist the temptation to lift up the barrel too much. You want it to come up as straight as possible.
Or freeze it. I never do that.
If you did it right, it will come out easily. If you didn't.....

thanks Tom. Exactly where on the receiver do you tap, and how are you positioning the stock for tapping the comb, and how hard a tap? thanks

Use Johnson's Paste Wax as a release agent and it will come out easily. Plug recesses with clay. We take a rubber mallet and smack the top of the receiver. Then clamp the gun upside down by the barrel in a padded vise. Grab the forearm in one hand and the stock in the other. Wiggle off.

He is past the release agent and clay stage; as I said, if he didn't do that right, just leave it in forever. Right, as Bob said, on top of the ring. Remember that stocks are easy to break through the wrist, so be very careful.

put the bolt in and take a wood block and tap it out..I can even hold the forend and tap the barrel in fromt of the forend with a lead hammer lightly until it gives a tad then pull it apart..Lots of different ways and tricks to release and most work. just don't get overly aggressive, go slow and work it apart..the proper use of release agent goes one hell of a long ways preventing problems..I use the old world Johnsons wax, not the new stuff..I use Marine Tex, but suggest to the newbie to use Brownells gel to start with..

I got it out guys. Used dpcd's advise and put front and back guard screws in and using a plastic mallet and small block of wood directly on the screw heads, kept whacking the screws. Actually took a good number of hits. Back broke loose first and then I could rock it a little back and forth, then more and finally came. Used old Johnson's paste wax as release agent. Many thanks for all the help and suggestions guys.

There is always that moment just before she comes out.

When one is saying did I use enough release agent.

Then great relief when she pops free. Smiler

pdog,
then there is the Aw Shit moment, that most live with to one degree or another early on in life with glass!!! rotflmo

When all else fails, get out moms hair dryer heat the crap out of the barrel channel and action and pry it out and then keep heating and get all the glass out and start over..Ive been told you can freeze it in the deep freeze and break the metal out of the wood..
