Beretta Olimpia Standard Barrel Disassembly



Log in to see fewer ads
Dear Fellow Members-Are there any tips, warnings or complete disassembly videos on the Olimpia .22 standard barrel rifle? Would not ask, but mine needs a thorough cleaning and rust removal. I discovered that a ball detente for the safety is easily lost and am wondering if there are any tips on how NOT to lose it. I already have removed the bolt assembly and receiver cover, but am concerned about how to remove the action screws and action w/o losing any parts. I have searched all over the 'net, looked in my Gun Parts Corp catalog and asked another collector. Will be using the Frontier .45 wool pad to remove the rust and leave the bluing. My gun has a great bore and crown, just some spot rust and storage oil that needs to be removed. Lastly, do people recommend a light oil for the bolt assembly as opposed to Lubriplate? This is a soap based lithium grease that I use on my centerfires. Thanx again for any detailed input, as I'd like to do this properly. Wafermonkey1

Disassembly

I recently (last week) received my new heavy barrel. The two rifles dissemble the same way. I searched google and came up with this site that completely tells you how to do it.WARNING read the entire article first before beginning take down.

Dear Sir-Thank you for the link. Thanx to Eric at Lakeside Machine, I received some good information that really helped. Honestly, I am disappointed at the level of rust on this gun, even though it was hand select best of 10. After having my C&R for over 15 years, I could tell that this poor rifle was rode hard and put up wet. Work about 8 hours straight removing what surface rust I could. The rifle really needs a complete disassembly, but I simply don't have the time nor desire to go to that level. The bore is very clean and the crown is pristine, thank God!-Wafermonkey1
