Best Answer

Not very easily. The barrel is not designed to be removed by the user. With the gun empty, work the bolt to cock the hammer. Drift out the two pins that retain the trigger guard assembly and that can be removed. No further action dis assembly is advised.

Who made sears model 66?

High Standard, because High Standard was actually owned by Sears at the time, and JC Higgins was high executive at Sears that the series was named for. High Standard did not start putting out weapons in its own name until 1962. The model 66 was made until 1961. The 583.XXX beginning indicates made by High Standard. The last three numbers do not indicate year made, but which lot it came from, and the lot indicates year made. Mine reads one side - JC Higgins Model 66 Sears, Roebuck and Co. 583.608. and other side says Model 66 12 GA.

What are the factors for number 66?

The first step to finding the factors of a number is to break the number down into its prime factors. In this case, 66 can be broken down as follows: 66 = 2x3x11 To find the other factors (apart from one) you have to multiply any combination of these prime factors together. That gives us the factors of 66 as: 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 22, 33, 66.
