be shure gun is unloaded ! pull the hammer back to full cock. open lever about 1/3 and remove the screw that holds the lever in (pivit screw),remove lever handle. pull bolt out slowly (may have to hold hammer past full cock). the ejecter spring is under presure but pulling the bolt out slowly will release the presure remove the bolt remove the ejector spring with a small pair of neddle nose pliers or nimble fingers. on assembly be shure install ejector spring in the hole and hold it their with a finger and install the bolt to hold it in place. the rest is just reverse directions. good luck. Go to the following webb site to see a diagram and might help along with the previous advice........ If it is a 39A model, put on half-cock safety, unscrew the takedown screw, separate the two halves of the gun (they may be stuck together pretty well. Lay gun on your lap, with the receiver flat lever towards your knees - smack receiver with the palm of your hand to the right of the half-moon shape seam. Make sure your knees are far enough apart that the gun can "fold" in the center. Once halves are apart bold can be easily removed. On newer models there is a screw or pin that keeps it from falling out, on my older 39A the bolt practically falls out.

How do you clean your Marlin 30 30 rifle?

I will assume that this question pretains to the fact that you do not like cleaning, and rightly so, from the muzzle end of the firearm. Step 1 is to partially open the lever to a point where you can grasp the the bolt with your fingers. Then remove the cross bolt where the lever attaches to the frame of the gun. The lever should now drop eaisly fron the botton of the action. The bolt can now be removed. The firearm should now be inverted for cleaning so any gunk will drop out the bottom.
