Anyone have any tips for tearing down a bolt on a model 880 rimfire? I've seen a guide somewhere but can't find it now. I have one that's become hard to turn and I think it just needs cleaning but I thought I'd ask before I start punching drift pins.

This might help, kind of fuzzy pic.
I would start by soaking it overnight in a penetrating oil or kerosene. If it's still stiff, remove the extractor first. Should be a pin under it. These can be removed by putting the bolt in a padded vise and use a pair of needlenose pliers line up the nose with the sides of the extractor and give the pliers a whack with your palm.
