Field-expedient method would be to use a bootlace to pull back the firing pin head.

Never tried that method, but now I know.... thanks...

Yeah, it's pretty easy to do if you're wearing appropriate footwear.

M70s for certain, but I have a custom FN that works the same way with its M70-type safety. Howas are also easy. 98s are easy, if they have the 3-position safety, but few sporters do. Still, the dime trick isn’t too hard to master, but you need something to press against.

Any rifle with a box trigger is going to be subject to trouble. The three 98s I have that can be hunted all have single-stage military types with lighter springs.

Howa is easier to break down then the Model 70 if all you want to do is remove firing pin assembly from bolt body on both rifles.

You can remove and break a Mark V bolt down with no tools even removing the firing pin spring.

The 03 Springfield bolt is every bit as easy to dismount, perhaps a tad easier, as a M70 bolt. Speaking as someone who's messed with both of them for five decades.

Easiest I've ever found was a 6.5 Japanese Arisaka. A push with the palm of my hand and a slight twist and the bolt came apart. The Winchester M70s were a little more complicated in comparison.

I've owned most of the rifles promoted above but in my experience the absolute easiest and best bolt disassembly is found on the Brno ZKK 600 series bolts. Push in a button on the side of the shroud, then lift the bolt handle and remove the bolt, then unscrew the firing pin/shroud assembly. Very slick and easy. The triggers on those ZKK rifles, if the single, non-set trigger is installed, is certainly as simple to inspect and clean as a Model 70. Too bad so few USA hunters have experience with this wonderful design. I really like them.

Steyr männlicher has a button on the shroud and it comes apart easily as well.

Tikka requires a Allen key or a small screwdriver to disassemble the bolt.

To further my vote for the Springfield I just now timed myself. From the moment I flipped the safety into the middle upright position and flipped down the magazine cutoff/bolt release switch to when I put it back together and re-inserted the bolt into the receiver and snapped the trigger on an empty chamber, 12 seconds transpired, which included pushing in the locking detent and unscrewing the striker from the bolt body and then screwing it back in. Bet I could get it down to 9-10 seconds if the Huns were on the verge of over running my trench.
