Removing Fore-End cap screw

Post by jack63ss »

I inherited a Gamemaster 760 .35 without a firing pin (long story). I would like to get the weapon back into working condition, so I looked at a couple of videos on disassembly. They all say to remove the Fore-End cap screw by just unscrewing it. My issue is there is a cap over the top of the screw and I am unsure how to remove it. See attached photo.

I am unsure what the age is either, as I went to the Society page on Manufacturing Dates and what it shows is not stamped on my weapon. Instead of a date code I have 2 numbers and some symbols. See attached photo.
So either the weapon was built in March 1903, which I doubt, or I am reading something wrong.

I would appreciate your help, as this is weapon 1 of 12 without firing pins. Oh, and did I mention I don't have the firing pins for any of them but the 760.

Thanks, Jack

The entire Action Tube is meant to be unscrewed. Open the action then look at the Action Tube, there are probably two holes that aid in disassembly.
