Anybody know of a website, showing how to take it down and put it back together. Can the mag be taken apart, its full of crap and hard to load. Also a place that sells parts.

Also whats the best way of having it refinished, its scratched and marred in places?

Ok ive had a chance to play with it for a while, why sell it and run? Have you owned one?

I did, and it was an excellent rifle.

The sole complaint I had was, the scope mount design requires removing the mount to disassemble the action for cleaning.

It was accurate, and extremely reliable. Never had a stoppage of any kind.

Perhaps there were good ones and bad ones -- and I had a bad one. The POS would jam regardless of the type of ammo used, even when following the mag winding instructions to a "T". I sold it to a coworker, who ended up threatening me with a small claims lawsuit if I didn't refund his money. I took it back and eventually swapped it even in early '89 for a '78 Honda Civic to drive back and forth to work.
