This doesn't work on all airsoft pistols.

Zansion (author)ChefZombie2009-11-01

This works on all professional grade gas blow back airsoft pistol. if yours doesn't, i suggest you trash the pistol and get out of the sport.

ChefZombie (author)Zansion2010-10-22

Chill, I meant different guns have different ways of field stripping such as a m9 doesn't field strip the same way as a desert eagle.

negative nancy (author)Zansion2010-10-21

No it doesn't. Most gas pistols depending on the brand, and the model the replica is based off of, have different ways of being taken apart and cared for.

What is the gun you used in your picture?

Your Average Guy (author)2008-12-05

Yeah i have a SIG like that. Ive been playing airsoft for a couple years and only have a spring pistol. hahaha.

michael9319 (author)2008-11-29

good instructable, but this only works for the m9 series, if you have an m1911 it will strip differently, along with the glock series, desert eagle, walther, and other oddballs like the cz series, and some of the SIG's.

goeon (author)2008-11-26

i added you to the airsoft guide

finnster (author)2008-09-29

i used to do this to annoying little kids in my neighborhood, then say i broke my gun, then reassemble it in a few seconds and shoot them

grimfig (author)finnster2008-09-29

What was there reaction?

finnster (author)grimfig2008-09-30

screaming and running away(they were always stealing my stuff)

grimfig (author)finnster2008-09-30

That'll teach 'em.

MD_Willington (author)2008-04-22

The lever is the take down lever, actually the take down you are showing is similar to a real take down, I do not have it on video but the take down for my S&W 5906 9x19mm pistol is fairly similar, as it is with my Taurus 9x19mm pistol...

ubr.bzkr (author)MD_Willington2008-08-30

Thanks man. I've been trying to do this all day and I couldent figure out how to slide the bolt out. haha now I can try and mod it.

Storm950 (author)2008-07-01

Shouldn't the instruction manual explain how to do this? Although at least this instructable is of high quality.

grimfig (author)Storm9502008-07-01

Well I got mine from and it did not come with instructions on how to do this so.

ac1D (author)2008-04-21

I add lubrifiant on mine, i dunno if it make it stronger! any airsoft expert can tell me ?

grimfig (author)ac1D2008-04-22

why do you add lubrifiant

Vertigo666 (author)grimfig2008-05-15

Why wouldn't you? Doesn't make it inherently stronger, might make it easier to slide.

benthekahn (author)Vertigo6662008-06-28

And it would increase the power.

awoodcarver (author)2008-04-22

lot different then a 1911 , a S&W;, or a Kel-Tec field strips ....thought it was going to be a real gun

grimfig (author)awoodcarver2008-04-22

oh ya i guess i should say airsoft gun instead

Vertigo666 (author)grimfig2008-05-15

My airsoft 1911, you just push/pull out the slide lock lever.

awoodcarver (author)Vertigo6662008-05-15

On my 1911 I have to drop the mag eject the bullet check the chamber to make sure it is unloaded push down on the front of the barrel and move a key to the right making sure the recoil spring don't fly our ...on the smaller ones I have to stick a bent piece of metal in a slot move the slide back after I make sure it is old .38 S&W; model 10 revolvers are the easiest to clean followed by the Glocks....he changed the title since I posted the above I thought it was a real gun when I wrote comment ...I have since gotten my son and myself 2 air soft type knock off's to see what all the hype I see posted about them was about shoots a small orange pellet lots of fun takes me back to my red ryder bb gun days and yes I do have both eyes
