Re: newbe 1869 owner

What you have is a Model 1868 Rifle made in 1869. There are disassembly instructions posted on the main page of this website. You will have to get the barrel out to remove the hinge-pin. It might help to soak the 'bonded' area with lemon oil before attempting to separate the parts. Just work slowly, and do not remove the trigger guard unless you have a reason to do so.
