    Does anyone know the procedure for disassembling the bolt on the new AB3? I just want to clean and lubricate like I do on my other rifles. It says in the owner's manual to send it to their service center for cleaning. To me, I don't think it could be that complicated to do. Thanks for any help.

    Despite what other replies advise about holding back sear tab and unscrewing to get firepin out, it turns out that doesn’t work for AB3 model.

    It tuns out that firepin assembly is held inside the bolt by the charging handle - so removing charging handle allows the firepin assembly to drop out. So if anyone gets frustrated with taking apart AB3 bolt assembly, please share this video showing how to remove the charging handle.

    P.S. - the Winchester action in this video is identical to the AB3.
