stevens savage 77b 16 gauge nightmare

Post by blackknight » Thu Nov 12, 2015 3:36 pm

evening folks, i am attempting to clean a stevens savage 77b 16 gauge and it has turned in to a freaking nightmare. i've been attempting to absolutely no avail, remove the trigger assembly and it won't budge! even bent a drift pin trying to do it... also a square piece with what looks like a plunger has fallen out!! so what should i do? and before you post something un-useful, no i cant sell it,yes i must repair it and no i cant find a manual for it.

any help would be great...

Been a long time since I worked on one, so hope this helps.
Be sure the hammer is cocked and locked before trying to drive out the pins.
the piece that fell out may be the slide block. For drawing google the net
and you'll find them. Hope that helps.
BTW I always hated working on those stevens monsters.

I've seen a few commercial 77's available for about $100, and ex-military parts are available. I was thinking of picking one up, parking it, swapping some parts, and building a 77E clone to go with my retro ARs. Originals are on the C&R list, though I've never seen one for sale.
