Realize this is not military but Ed said you might know the answer. My father bought a .22 rifle that shoots short, long and long rifle ammo and was charged with a clip that is now missing. The purchase was made circa 1937. The rifle was left with an uncle on his farm for their use, shot some by me as a boy sniping some groundhogs. My cousin gave it back to me on a recent visit. I thought it was long gone. :lol:

The rifle is stamped "SPRINGFIELD J. Stevens Arms Company, Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA, Model 84 C-" no serial number found. Just in front of the receiver on the barrel is the number "12" with a circle around it. No serial number is evident.

Primarily, I want to find out how to remove the bolt and where I could get a clip. Movement of the trigger does not release the bolt as is often the case in other .22 rifles.

Fiddling with the bolt, like the Mauser, I released the firing pin with the bolt in the open position. :roll: The bolt will not close now. Do you know how to recock the bolt on this rifle or how to remove the bolt? Do you know where I can get that information?

Thank you,
Larry

replacement magazine.

Some of the older .22's had a grove cut in the floor of the receiver. you would line up a lug in this grove and withdraw the bolt. Not sure about the Savage,Fox,Springfield Model 12.

Well, it took a S E R I O U S YANK by my range buddy, but holding the trigger back and pulling the bolt rearward hard did release the bolt, finally. The rifle is all cleaned up now and shoots great! Thanks my friends.
