I was cleaning my 336 in .35 Remington and the bolt went all the way forward without the lever put in place first. I am unable to get the blot to the rear to put the lever back in. I was wondering if anyone had a problem like this before and can I avoid a trip to the gunsmith or should I just go.

Welcome to the forum.Its kind of hard to say what to do with out seeing it.If you dobt that you can get it out of there without any damage I would say.yes take it to a smith or local gun shop.

Set it horizontal (like you were shooting it), tap the sides right behind the loading gate. That should drop the locking bolt down out of the way. Or you can get up in there where the hook on the lever goes up inside and pull it down yourself, releasing the bolt.
Then just run a rod down the barrel to push the bolt out.

I would try to get a wooden dowel and try to slowly tap it out

Just a quick update. I taped on the loading port side with a rubber mallet and the bolt slid right out with a little pressure from a wooden dowel. Great advice and saved me a trip tithe gunsmith. Thanks for the help!

Should have thought of this sooner, so you'd know what I'm talking about.....



It locks the bolt in and also sets the "head space" and pushes the split fireing pin up into alignment to strike the primer.

Only on old brass that split at the head. Had to run a patch down the barrel to push out the blown case.
Is this reloaded stuff that maybe wasn't sized or loaded too hot?

Likely it was reloaded to many times. When resize the brass it gets thinner little by little. That is for full length resizing, neck resizing I have never tried.
