There are a lot of rumors around that the G&G guns are not reliable and will crap out on you really fast, and etc. Well, there is some truth to these claims, but overall I've been relatively satisfied with my purchase. The only things really need replaced are the piston, and the bushings, (I have CA oiless bushings and a guarder piston).
Well, now to the takedown:
Here are the tools you need to take this gun apart:
-1 phillips screwdriver large
-1 phillips screwdriver small
-1 set of allen renches
-tube of lubricant
-1 set of tweesers
Heres a pic of the gun before takedown.
First, begin by removing the trigger unit from the gearbox/stock, pull the trigger guard out, and then lift the unit out.
Now you can slide the receiver/gearbox out of the stock. Simply lift it out of the stock, paying careful attention to the motor and wires at the rear.
Next, unlatch the selector switch lever from the selector switch, and set aside.
Now, carefully recoil the spring and rod back, remove and set aside.
Next, remove the bolt, simply slide out from the rings attached to the barrel, and set aside.
Almost to the gearbox! okay, remove the two small screws shown here that hold the receiver on the gearbox.
Now, turn the gun over, and push out the small pin shown in the pic out from this latch, set aside the spring, and unscrew the screw. (its that little latch laying on the reciever with the little spring sitting on top of it).
Remove these two screws that hold the barrel and hop up unit onto the receiver.
Pull the barrel/front section out from the receiver very carefully.
Now, with all the screws, and front section removed, you can slide off the receiver.
Slide off the top receiver cover.
Remove the screws from the gray matte colored piece of metal that holds the motor on.
It should now look like this, this parts a little frustrating, you have to work the motor off carefully, (I usually put a flathead screwdriver in to carefully pry it off on each side of the gearbox.
Hereís what it should look like when the motor is off.
Okay, now take off the various Allen wrench screws on the gearbox. (Any other type of screws, just leave em alone).
And now, I usually put a flathead screwdriver connected to the spring guide on the side of the gearbox to hold it in place, and then just slowly and carefully take off the gearbox cover, and voila there you are.
I would also like to add that when you are putting the gearbox back together, and wanting to test fire the gun before going through all the steps just to get the trigger back on, thereís a gray sliding thingamajigger (basically the trigger) and all you have to do is slide it forward to test fire.
I hope this guide was helpful in someway, I realize Iím not the best at giving directions, but at least there are pictures guiding you through the process. And it stillís better than having no guides on taking it apart like there where prior to this one.
