Default M1917 Disassembly

Some time ago a link was posted showing a complete disassembly of the rifle (even removing the safety and floorplate catch). It appears that link is dead or has vanished. Anyone have it saved somewhere or a working link? Thanks!

I googled the subject and came across a site that shows on youtube complete disassembly of a p14. This may be of help to you.

If possible leave your ejector,and spring alone.You can break that spring just by looking at it wrong.

Yeah I intend to avoid the ejector. When I got the gun it was still packed in cosmoline. The safety only wants to move after a tremendous effort. I suspect it is stuffed with cosmo.

Now that you've teased us, don't forget to post photos and a range report.

Hi Mr. Tickle, I like gadgets so I got one of these from Marstar...https://www.marstar.ca/dynamic/produ...roductid=81808 it's a bolt tool. Ordering from Canada was fairly painless. Marstar is a little slow in shipping but no problems. irishsteve has stated that the ejector is delicate. Mine was broken and it was noticeable when I tried to remove the bolt to inspect the bore. The fix is easy as I only had to remove one screw. Here's a YouTube on the bolt tool...https://youtu.be/ZMuJ85t_ZxM


Regards, Mike
