Hope this helps anyone who needs it. I know it's a lot of pictures, but a picture is worth a thousands words.

Enjoy!

Nice work on the takedown guide! Very informative and I'm sure it will be helpful to many! Man... I sure wish I had a guide like this the first time I tried fixing a broken WE Hi-Capa, since the design is essentially the same. I did get it fixed eventually, but there was a lot of guess and check work along the way :lol:

Anyhoo, kudos PxRxSxRx! Very well done :)

I know how you feel. The manual (in the M1911 it actuall shows the Hi-Capa) the take down was terrible and didn't really show anything so I had to figure it out on my own for the most part.

Thanks for the compliment, I should maybe post in the title that it will be nearly the exact same to take down the Hi-Capa.

Good guide! Moving it to our guides section.

Great guide man, it will sure help me when I get my WE!!

I know what u mean Jin. However in my case I actually
like taking a GBB apart for the first time. :) Only part I
hate is the springs that shoot out at you, then you can't
find 'em after. :evil:

Was snooping through some of the miscellaneous threads and came across this nifty one. I was looking at the pictures (which were great, by the way), and was wondering how you took the pictures? In almost every shot both of your hands are seen. Are you maybe operating with a mysterious third hand? :wink:

But in all seriousness, how'd you go about taking them?

I simply set the camera between myself and the gun and had it set with a ten second timer. Afterwards I just made sure I was holding the right pose in front of it. I hope this helps.

Awesome guide thanks

BTW, what brand/make of hopup unit is that?

I ordered a King Arms one for the M4/M16 as recommended by forum members for its better design, but Im not sure if it will have special take down procedures.

If your not a Bot. That is a GBB pistol and your talking about an AEG. Rocks versus Wood in comparision here.

Perhaps pnce I get all of my guns working again I'll post up some more take downs... But yeah, I'd much rather play with GBB than AEGs. Completely different monsters especially for those not afraid to rip into the gear box.
