This is a specialized, finely fitted mechanism; and you may mar it for life by an attempt to remove the inner mechanism. It is unneces- sary, and may do damage to the inner mecha- nism, to disassemble it for routine cleaning and oiling. Of course, misfortunes (such as dropping your gun in water) require appro- priate attention, and in such circumstances we recommend you immediately take your gun to a competent gunsmith.
