Removing a Barrel

How can I remove the barrel from my .38-55 repeating rifle without sending it to a gunsmith?

In their latest catalogue the Marlin Firearms Company give instructions for removing rifle barrels which are so practical and to the point that I give them below verbatim. "Having removed the magazine, forearm, etc., clamp the barrel rigidly in a vice, close to the receiver, barrel pointing to the left; place a wad of leather or paper between the barrel and the jaws of the vise to prevent scratching the barrel. Be sure the breech-bolt is removed or drawn back out of the way—otherwise the extractor and lugs of the breech-bolt, engaging the corresponding slots in the barrel, will spoil both the barrel and the breech-bolt. Place a flat piece of metal or wood on each side of the receiver (to increase the face bearing against the receiver) and then close a good big monkey wrench with wide jaws on these plates, over top of the receiver. Keep a wad of paper under the metal plates and the receiver will not be marred or scratched in any way. Give the handle of the monkey wrench a sharp, quick blow with your hand (this will start the barrel much better than a steady pressure), and unscrew the barrel. All barrels are screwed into the receiver by means of a right-hand thread on the breech end of the barrel.

"When replacing a barrel be sure the breech bolt is out of the way, screw in barrel; be very careful to see that the sight bases are parallel to the top of the receiver, so that the extractor and lugs of the breech-bolt will enter the corresponding slots in the barrel."
