    The gun is: H&R Topper JR. model 490 20 Gauge, I feel the obsessive urge to do a very thorough cleaning, but cant find a manual or guide online. be a great help if anyone knows any places to look (yes, i tried google..) For any that don't know, it is a youth-sized single shot break open shotgun, and operates rather nice for a great price. thanks!

    You didn't look very hard. I found it in 30 seconds. :D


    I realize that the manual is for the Pardner, but it's the same action. It hasn't changed since it was first designed.

    I would NOT recommend that you disassemble the action. Get a can of Gun Scrubber and hose it out. Then spray some good lube like BreakFree and blast the excess out with an air hose.

    Not sure about modern H&R's but mine differs from the parder in some minor ways. still, that guide will be helpfull. thanks.

    Unless you've got some SERIOUS gunk going on in there, I'd also recommend against try to take those apart. I love'em, but they're just not designed for field stripping in any way. They're simple enough in design that I think UffDa's suggestion would work just fine.

    If you decide you just have to do it, this page is for a trigger job and he shows how to disassemble/reassemble in the process. It's for a Handi-Rifle, but the your action's got to be very nearly the same:

    Good luck
