Matt Chase: I'm having a really hard time getting the pump tube loose and I DO NOT want
to damage this gun in any way, it was my father's and it needs a deep
clean, is there any suggestions you might have to loosen this up without
JP PATTERSON: thank you for posting. very helpful
zoranindijanec: I have the same rifle, remington 7600, but I have a loading and reloading
problem. It seems like the magazine is loose. I tried a new magazine and an
after market magazines and I still have the same problem. I like the gun.
Can you please offer any suggestions. Great video. Thanks.
downeastgunworks: @jodopeg True, but the Remmy pump guns are nowhere near as complicated as
many semi auto rifles.
downeastgunworks: @Adam0Fraley I don't see why not. They operate much like a pump shotgun,
which is what many people know how to use already. The thing is the stock
has to fit the shooter as far as length of pull. Any competent gunsmith can
shorten it as needed....IF that's what is needed. The most important thing
is to go to the range and practice a lot. You need to be proficient with
whayever gun you're going to use, before you hunt with it.
LifeWithMadMattsNewS: thanks you the man
0407gil: gday mate im in australia and found your video to be double thumbs up. in
your dealings with the 7600 do the firing pins break easy. or often. i have
a .243 that has done its second pin. only 1 shot after it was replaced
under warranty. the rifle has shot approx 150 rounds.
jimsk9s: Thanks for a great video that is clear and to the point. I have an early
80s Sportsman 76 that is totally gummed up with whatever the previous owner
lubed it with. Thanks to you I will be able to take it down for a good
cleaning with confidence.
downeastgunworks: It's kind of tricky to do, but if you read the directions on the package
and are careful, it'll take a lot of the rattling noise out of the fore
end. If you don't care to remove the fore end ever again, you could just
glass gel it permanently to the pump tube. If you ever need to replace the
wood, you'll have to destroy it to get it back off again.
bsg53md: Thank you very much for the info. Also that's a frihhin cool Stache
jodopeg: Great Vid,,but that Remington is just too complicated for my taste,,I would
prefer a bolt action set up....simple and easy.
Scott Walter: Any chance you do the assembly now? Every time I have taken a gun apart
something doesn't work out or go back simple. I currently have a Marlin
22LR 25N which I can't get the bolt assembly back together after I took out
the Screw holding it in. Any suggestions?
cottonjeff: thanks for the tutorial. very helpful.
rcruz003: Very thorough . Thanks
DieselDokter: Hey Jim. I just purchased a model 7600 and used your video to learn how to
dissassemble it. It was easy to follow and helpful. Thanks a lot. Aaron,
oya691: @Adam0Fraley i have a 760 game master 30-06 my first rifle and i love it
OhPhilly: Informative video.
Vayjak: Thanks for the useful vid. Picking up my 7600 next week.
mike5010: Just bought a model 7600 in .308 and wanted to change the stock. This video
has been very helpful
Tom Grabmeyer: Great video! Thanks again!
asepos: Been looking for this simple of an explanation for a LONG time! GREAT
VIDEO!!! First day of deer season in PA and my 7600 is soaked to the bone.
Needs a good cleaning & the rails re-lubed with a different type of lube
because the action is SO clammy. Recommendations on lube? My biggest
concern is; if i go this far, am I going to have to go back to the range
and re-sight my rifle in before going back out to hunt? Will disassembly of
the barrel from the receiver throw it off much or not at all?
leftheart13: this was my first gun bought 23 years ago! ... bought it new, and will
never sell it! just glad they have a metal 10 round magazine for it now..
and man this thing has a wicked kick! Thanks again
nomyhomi56: awesome vid man thanks alot. any more tips on cleaning the trigger once its
downeastgunworks: @asepos It's always recommended to reboresight any time you tear apart the
gun this far. I can recommend CLP like the stuff I was issued in the USMC.
A company named Break Free makes the stuff. As to " water proofing " your
gun try using a car wax with carnauba. Just rub the entire gun down with it
like you were waxing a car. It works well believe it or not.
rotamanX: hi mate, I have a 30-06 brand new 7600 and the barrel bolt it super tight?
are the newer models glued or thread locked
CanadianCluband7: Can you show removing the barrel,up a bit more,closely...thanks. Mike.

Cannibalriot: Excellent Jim, thank you so very much That's my gun man!
jodopeg: My mini-14 is about the most complicated to me,,,my AR15 is next in the
simpler list and then my AKs , being the peasant rifle, are the simplest. I
think the SKS is a good working design, but is a parts apart nightmare. I
like my Marlin lever action 44 because I don't have to break down anything
to get it clean. Just call me lazy, but I don't like a gun I have to fuss
Darrell Perkins: What is the best procedure for lubricating(where and how much to
use)?Thanks again for a very informative video!
Stacey7772: Very informative video Jim ,now I will tear down my 7600 35 whelen and
clean it then not be able to assemble it myself LOL Then we shall meet in
person ! ;)
kel horton: very helpfull
Dmytro Bryushkov: Now it is understandable, why majority of hunters prefers bolt action
rifles (disassembling and assembling is much simpler, than a pump gun, and
usually no tools is required).
ken mcgehee: very helpful viedo best yet straigt to the point well demastraited.
ThaiTan Corner: jazzy brother very pro
downeastgunworks: Yep, that's me.
bsg53md: THANK YALL FOR THIS VID!!! Wicked sweet breakdown. My(used) 7600s forend is
pretty wobbly and not only am I concerned for safety, Id like to quite it a
lil for hunting. What do you suppose could be the issue? A local gunsmith
told me it is sposed to be that way but I have my doubts.
SaturdaySportsman1: Good video. Simple and informative.
Adam0Fraley: would you recommend the 7600 for a first deer gun?
1000cubes: Thank you Jim Green, I needed that. :)
tjdinfl: I have this gun. My dad bought it when I was a kid; it's now mine and has
never been stripped down. I always knew it needed to be done since it is
difficult to thoroughly clean inside the action. I finally decided to
research the proper way. This is awesome information! Thank you very much
for posting! And thank you for your service to our country! I really
Carlos Andres Bolivar: Great video. Very helpful.
1nfidelcrusader: Thanks for the take down instruction. I also have a 7400 and 742. I'll be
looking on your posts for similar pertaining to those actions. the 7600
Police - 16.5" barrel, unfortunately won't cycle rounds reliably. Changing
mags and mfg types, as well as ammo configs doesn't not resolve. Feeding
problems and double feeds. grrr..
leftheart13: Love this gun.. thanks for the info on take down.. always wanted to know
the steps for take down.. many a rabbit.. and many a deer have meet this
rifle of mine!
Darrell Perkins: Thank you(you and YouTube) very much for posting this video!I researched
this rifle before buying it and was hoping there's a video for it!I need to
remove the barrel for muzzle brake installation,not wanting to wait until I
find a service manual.
Aaron Wenck: So i'm sitting here watching a show called Lords of War. Awesome show. And
i'm like damn, that guy looks familiar. For some reason it feels like I've
talked to him about my remington 7600. Then I realized I just watched this
youtube video a couple days earlier and I'm 95 percent sure that this is
Jim Green who is on Lords of War. Great video, and great gun!
downeastgunworks: @rotamanX Yes, they have some sort of thread locking compound on them. IF
-- and ONLY IF -- you can't remove it in any other way, you could gently
heat the barrel nut / tube right at the threaded part to loosen it. BE
CAREFUL ! Too much heat will anneal the parts and ruin them.
kot0564: Great video Jim, I finally took mine apart after about 6 years of huntin
(doesn't look like the guy who had it before me took it apart either) and
it was really ugly in there. Operates like a dream now, appreciate the time
you took to make this vid.
Todd Bowles: Very well done and helpful.
downeastgunworks: I have in the past "quieted" the rattles on these guns by removing the
forearm from the pump tube. I then carefully apply a little bit of
accraglas gel to the wood where it rests on the pump tube. Wait until it
dries before putting it back on ! Otherwise you might permanently glue the
wood to the metal. Make sure you use the release agent on the steel and put
the wood back on just as it's nearly dry. Once it forms to the tube, pull
it off and allow it to fully cure.
