First, I'm having trouble disassembling it. I get to the part where the bolt goes forward and is supposed to lift up & out.
The other problem is the fiber optic from sight (OEM?) slid off. I saw what appeared to be a small threaded on to of the rail.
Thanks for any help.
Keep in mind I'm a little dumb. :oops:

Press the shell latch to the side and slide the action sleeve assembly out the front of the receiver and then just lift the bolt off the action bars.
I believe the front sight was screwed into the rib.

OK, so the shell latch is on the bottom where you load? I did hold down on that as I slid the bolt (receiver?) but it only went so far & I couldn't budge that lever.

Press the shell latch to the right, into the recess in the right inside receiver wall and it should slide out.
I am not sure what you are calling the lever. If you are talking about the operating handle, it pulls straight out of the bolt. It has a little spring loaded ball detent retainer. Sometimes if a gun has not been disassembled or cleaned and oiled for a while they can be tough to get out. Two small pieces of wood and a pair of channel locks may be needed.
