    I'm having an issue removing the action & Barrel on my MPR Precision from the stock

    I've undone the two grub screws on the barrel band along with the two screws holding it to the stock and the single bolt under the stock yet still no movement so can anyone suggest what I've missed please?

    As it is a 400 it must be a single bolt bolt in front of the trigger guard...
    And that's it.

    Removing action from stock

    There is one bolt under the stock that I've removed, two screws holding the barrel band onto the stock also removed and yet the unit will not separate. I don't want to do any damage to the soft stock wood so don't want to get too violent.

    If you have problems, best advice is to get to your nearest club and ask for help. There's always someone who can help with most guns - especially Air Arms. On an S400, you don't need to remove the barrel before the stock. Best advice - get to aclub.

    Removing stock

    I'm the only one with an MPR Precision at our club :(

    Which is annoying. I cannot understand why the MPR FT based on the 400 has a different band to the MPR Precision, Sporter and Biathlon rifles

    Mpr

    Job done just a little bit if persuasion required.

    Downside is the screw I wanted to remove has a metal blanking plug over it so for now I will leave it in situe

    removing actions

    No just kept moving the action till it popped out. Couldn't do what I wanted too do thought because of a pesky anti tamper bolt [think in engineering circles they used to be called "Cheese" headed bolts or "Sheer" Bolts because the tops did exactly that they sheered off.
