Hello, new member here.  I would like to find video or printed matter on the teardown of a standard model 64.  Any suggestions?  32 WS for what it’s worth, made in 1935.  I have done online searches, but the predominant information that pops up concerns “pre 64” subjects.  It does not appear to me that this is a takedown rifle.  Is that true? 

I was just given this by my sister, it was our grandfathers hunting rifle.  My dad took his first deer in Eastern Oregon in 1937.  It is in pretty nice shape, stored in a warm area.  No visible rust, minor dings here and there.  I wish I knew when and where granddad bought it.

Ordie,

The Model 64 is with just minor exception identical to the Model 94. If you change your search to “pre-64” Model 94 instructions, you will find a lot of information.

I have a research survey in progress for the Model 64. Accordingly, I would like to know what the serial number is on your Model 64, which variation it is, and if possible, a few pictures of it.

Thanks for your reply.  I have seen some info on the 94’s, I will dig into it further.  But is the 64 really considered a break down?  I will take some pictures tomorrow, beyond what I already have.  Do you know what size hood the front sight should take?  That is the only thing missing from this.

If by “break down” you actually mean is it a Take Down, the answer is No, it is not.  All Model 64 rifles were solid frames.  You can purchase a reproduction sight hood from Numrich – Gun Parts & Firearm Accessories | Numrich Gun Parts (gunpartscorp.com)

Welcome, Ordie. Please heed what you read and use good screwdrivers. Also patience and penetrating oil where necessary.

I’d suggest that you resist the urge to ‘tear down’ your M64. Clean and lightly oil the bore and just wipe down the exterior metal and wood and you’ll be good to go.

I must have seen it somewhere/sometime in the past, as it was already in my survey…. thanks for posting it though.
