1st Ruger, #1 International in 270

Never owned a Ruger before. I have a question to ask well actually several. How do you remove the Mannlicher Stock? How do you get the date the rifle was produced?

I've watched several videos and read articles but nothing on the removal of the Mannlicher forend.

I have never a Mannlicher stocked #1 so am not completely sure. I do have a 10-22 with the Mannlicher stock and to remove it you have to remove the Schnabel. There is a small screw on the bottom, remove it then tap the Schnabel toward the front.

I suspect the #1 is similar, remove the Schnabel and also the screw in approximately the bottom center of the forearm.

Good luck

There is a screw in the bottom of the fore end, take it out, remove the fore end tip and it should come right off after taking out the other screw in the center of the stock.

Congrats!! I purchased a used one off gunbroker in 2013 which came with no manual. I've never had to take it off but the suggestions above seem most accurate (part s-50 and s-51). I think the owners manual will only give disassembly instructions enough for cleaning and probably wouldn't recommend anything past that. Here's a manual up for auction which you might be interested in.

Fair warning though. It's a little kicker.

Absolutely the most beautiful rifle ever made, and in a caliber, (.270 Winchester) that IMHO is the best ever devised, congratulations are definitely in order. I'm still looking for one in pristine condition at all the gun shows and LGS out here, could kick myself in the butt, as I found one about 3 years ago at a local gun show at a very reasonable price, and before I could turn around and buy it, it was already sold. In other words, "he who hesitates........".
