The old 97 I bought a while back looks like it has been 50 or more years since it has been cleaned, and a friend told me how to push the button in on the magazine tube, rotate the tube and take it off.

I did this, and there was so much gunk built up, the tube almost didn't come off, and then the barrel wouldn't come out.

Is the barrel supposed to come out like the magazine tube ? ?

Anyone know anything about the old 97's ? ?

Depends on what series you have. They made a solid frame and a takedown. Takedown mod.Push in on the magazine plug locking pin and use the long end, which is sticking up, to turn the magizne tube counterclockwise about a half turn until it will pull forward. Pull the magazine tube forward as far as it will go. Push forward on the action slide handle and rotate the entire barrel assembly one quarter turn counterclockwise. The barrel/magagizne tube assembly can be withdrawn forward off the reciever (ANTIQUE FIREARMS BY DAVID R. CHICOINE)
