Tec-9 Disassembly / AB-10 Disassembly / Tec-DC9 Disassembly


Firearm shown is an AB-10, but the basic process is identical for all of the Interarms 9mm Tec-series weapons to the best of my knowledge. It's also useful for the Kimel/AA Arms AP-9 series as well as they're close, close cousins of the Tec series.

A basic level of competence is assumed in these instructions, as well as sobriety, legal possession of said weapon, et cetera. A sense of humor is also very, very helpful.

For the purposes of this web page, only the basic maintenance required to clean, lube, and keep your Tec-series "pistol" operating will be covered. We're interested in field-stripping and routine maintenance here, not taking apart the cap-gun lower receiver trigger mechanism or the like.

If you're unsure of yourself or your skills, take the weapon to a competent gunsmith and ask them to show this to you. If you damage yourself, your property, your domestic partner, your low-rider, wall of graffiti, or fellow gang members, it's your fault. Use these instructions at your own risk - they're worth exactly what you paid for them.

Step 1: Step 1: Get your gun

You'll need the following to complete the disassembly of your firearm:

- The weapon itself.
- Slot-head screwdriver.
- Phillips screwdriver.
- Hammer or rubber mallet.
- Cleaning supplies + weapon lubricant (WD-40, Rem-Oil, etc.)
- A flat surface upon which to work.
- A parts tray, dinner bowl, or something to hold the small, easily-lost parts as you go.

Step 2: Step 2: Make sure that sucker's unloaded.

Remove your magazine. Pull back bolt handle and visually inspect chamber to make sure that there's no forgotten bullet lurking inside, waiting to be eaten by a grue.

If you're the paranoid type, hide all magazines and 9mm ammunition in another room while you disassemble the gun. If you're not, bully for you.

I wish I had a Tec-9...
if you've ever shot any gun you will know pistols are inaccurate shooting in semi-auto. do you just want it "cause it looks gangsta dawg"?
Not true. The navy "expert" qualification is hitting a barrel with a pistol(used to be a .45, now I think it's a 9mm) from 250 feet away, while it's bobbing up and down with the waves. Not being old enough to own a gun myself, I have to trust my father on this one. However, he earned the expert qualification with both an M1917 (modified M1911) and an M14.
it's a dice roll, trust me
also have you ever shot?
The fact that it can be done consistently says something else to me, but maybe a Tec 9's a bit different. I haven't shot anything but airsoft, but I know a fair bit about guns and shooting. Waiting till I turn 18. Gonna move to the place with the least strict gun laws, but a house, and mount two M60's (with a trigger lock, of course) on the roof. That's my dream, anyways :)

By the way, did you know that the two kids in the Columbine used Tec 9's?

also, they wore Levis jeans.
Levis Jeans are insensitive
BAN ALL LEVIS!!!

i think they were also wearing shoes.
No I'm pretty sure they were hi point carbines(9mm).
no, one of them used a tec-9
Sorry, did a google at some point there was a tec-9 used. They may have had more than one gun. That being said it really wouldn't had made a difference what guns they used it's about the people not the guns.
sorry man, but semi auto is second only to bolt actions. i think the term your after is full auto.
semi auto discharges one round per trigger pull
full auto continues to fire as long as you depress the trigger.

the only thing that makes semi autos is lack of self restraint.
"if you've ever shot any gun you will know pistols are inaccurate shooting in semi-auto." What kind of BS comment is that? If it's a clip fed weapon it's at least semi-auto. Even a DA revolver behaves like a semi-auto(at least for 6 shots). I don't know how you shoot or what you shoot that would cause you to make a ridiculous statement like that, but I know it can't be attributed to your experience or competence at any shooting sport. The only thing that will protect ALL our second amendment rights is eliminating ignorance
I shall now provide a counter-statement

First off, it isn't "clip fed," it is fed by a magazine.

Secondly, you know nothing of my competence, and I shall have you know I can hit a target the size of a dollar bill at 200 yards with an M1 Carbine (magazine fed rifle).

Lastly, you forgot a period in that sentence.
When you say semi-auto or do you just mean when rapidly firing?
Also not all magazine fed weapons are semi auto. ~pump action shot guns ~lever action carbines ~several bolt actions have magazines detachable and not
No, but guns are fun to shoot with. And especially in fully auto.
Lol true... and in all the movies they shoot the gun sideways, but the recoil will be going to the left, and the casings will be getting thrown in your face
Look at my 'ible xD

seriously, why would you need one of these? a shotgun, a pistol, a rifle and airsofts, yes, but a freakin' uzi? you can't hunt with, its not great target practice, and it's overkill for defence. Don't take me wrong, the government can take my guns from from my cold dead hands, but yeah.

No one needs one of these, in my personal opinion, no one needs any gun. I have one because I want one, and I enjoy shooting it. I'm not even preoccupied with self defense (not defence), Speaking of lack of education, it is a Intratec 9DC. Not an uzi. It is a cheap, mean looking, inaccurate, semi-automatic 9mm. The only thing about it that may be considered "overkill" is the fact that it can hold up a 50 round clip, which, if you go out to the mountains and just blast away at random targets, beer bottles, boxes, and small unsuspecting, undeserving animals like we do, you can definitely see the benefits of not having to reload after ever 20 rounds. (We're also very lazy) I hope this was informative enough of a comment. Please, think before you go firing off about things you know nothing about.
as i do know what i'm talking about, and when i said 'uzi', i only meant that as a general term as it related to it. i know it wasn't. but fine, your logic is reasonable. don't shoot the animals up to much though; you'll ruin the pelt, if you decide to sking it and wmake a hat from it or something.
I just picked up a tec AB10, it was cheap and I shot it today and it was fun!!! I was also surprised in that at 30 ft. which is a true defensive distance it was quite accurate. even rapid firing I put them into a paper plate size group
What is the price on those? Plus the $200 tax and ammo!
I dont know the price on them but a $200 tax!!! where do you live for that? up here in NH all we have to do is pay for ammo and the gun. LIVE FREE OR DIE!!!!
IIRC I was referring to a short barreled rifle. That has a $200 tax to matter what state you are in. You can thank the NFA for that.
really? wow that sucks. oh well at least californias gun laws arent for the U.S. otherwise getting that baby would be ny impossible lol
Yeah NFA sucks. I would never move to Commiefornia.
speaking of uzis, i just shot my first 9mm uzi today (not a mac10) (but the larger isreali version) was fun, barely any kick but on full auto it goes everywhere
I've shot one as well the weight of the whole thing really surprised me and like you said it's very controllable IMO. The one I shot(full auto) according to the owner costed him $8000. Needless to say I handled it very gently.
It is registered as a handgun, not an SBR.
Correct I think I was talking about an Uzi at the time but to be honest it was a long time ago so I could be wrong.
Whether you need a firearm or not is dependant on where you live. If you live in the wilderness of Alaska with 7 sled dogs and a bear is attacking them, what are you going to do without a 30-06? It's pretty hard to take down a bear with anything smaller than a 30-06. Just something to keep in mind.
tenaciousbd (author)  dla8885 years ago
Of course, the most likely of scenarios...  by the way, is seventhe standard number of sled dogs generally used to tote a fat assAlaskan around?  Or does it depend on the breed of the dog?  Iam genuinely curious about this, how ever, there is no insructable ondog sledding.  One of you needs to get on this for me STAT. Seriously, wipe that stupid grin off of your face and start your research.

the tec nine isnt good for anything. thats the point. its only use its to prove your stupidity and pop culture passion to your fellow degenerates.
You would need a fully automatic firearm because the people you are defending yourself against are carrying AK-47's, FN-FALs, M-16s, M4s, M-14s, and other automatic firearms that they have obtained throught the black market. If you don't believe me, there is a Russian black market arms dealer named Viktor Bout. He'll sell you an AK no questions asked.
its not overkill for defense when alot of the people you need to defend yourself from are carrying AK-47s, micro uzis and AR-15s.
some people get firearms like these for the novelty (much like how some people will buy swords, old vintage movie posters or what have you).
