I recently received some firearms form a family member, one of which included a mid 90's 922M, which to my understanding is a variant of the Marlin Camp 9/45.

I disassembled to gun to clean it (I'm pretty sure this gun has never been cleaned before) and I want to take the bolt apart farther to clean the firing pin and extractor thoroughly. There appears to only be two pins that need to be removed to take out the extractor and firing pin, but they don't seem to move at all. Is there a trick that anyone knows to get these out or are they just generally hard to remove.

Thanks.

Sorry I can't help with the Marlin, but welcome to the forum. I'm an old Iowa boy myself, from the west coast (CB). Whereabouts are you?

I believe both of those come out the top. So drive the pins from the bottom side with your pin punch. They aren't necessarily one way pins, so if they're not coming out, hit harder...they could be lodged in with rust/gunk.

My younger son was dumb enough to buy one of the camp carbines. I'd strongly suggest you hose the bolt off with an gum cutter or brake cleaner and then lube it.

It's usually not necessary to disassemble the bolt to clean it.

Among the options are to get a can of a "gun scrubber" spray and liberally flush it with the spray to blast out any crud.

Another is to get a can of cheap paint thinner and pour out enough in a lidded container to completely cover the bolt.
Cover and let soak hours or over night.
After soaking a couple of hours, pull it out and scrub with a solvent proof toothbrush, then soak more.

After either method, shake the bolt off and/or blow off with compressed air.
Warm the bolt completely with a hair dryer until dry.
NOTE: Hair dryer, NOT torch or heat gun. WARM, not smoking hot.

After dry, spray the bolt with a spray lubricant like Rem-Oil or CLP Breakfree.
Wipe off/shake off the excess and reassemble.

This method works well and doesn't risk a lost or damaged part.
