Removing barrels from milled receivers

Post by zz_denis » Tue Nov 17, 2009 9:12 am


I need to remove the barrel from a .308 Hunter. The receiver is very similar to the milled M78 and M76 in .308, so i suspect the barrel is mounted the same way.
My gunsmith doesnt have any experience working with milled receiver Valmets, so he suggested i ask around first before he attempts it.

Does anyone know if the barrels on these are screwed, or pressed in? Are there any tricks we should know about?

Send me a PM with your email address and I will send you a .pdf exploded diagram of the Hunter that may help.
