Splitting the action-Need advice and guidence please

Postby Boaby on Fri Sep 11, 2015 8:34 pm

Hi Fellow FXers,

Hope i can get some advice here.

Stripping my Vermy to service and replace seals.

Out the stock, barrel off. hammer spring out, ect.

But how do i split the action, I see two socket screws underneath at the rear and a large (very tight cant move it tight) T20 torx under where the magazine goes.

Is there anything else i`m missing, and why is that T20 torx so bloody tight, already broke my bit trying to remove it. :-(

Hope someone can advise me please.

Thanks

Boaby.

Ok,

Answering my own post, not cool but just letting you all know i`m making progress.

Just found that you unscrew the rear of the pellet probe to get at the rear socket screw.

Now just stuck with the tightest torx screw ever.

Is it just very tight or am i missing something here, and if just tight any recommendations on how to remove it.

Cheers and beers,

Boaby.

it could have loctite on the threads if it feels that tight so best thing to do is hold a soldering iron to the head of the screw to soften the loctite, also make sure you are using the correct torx tip !! and use a half inch torx bit holder along with a half inch ratchet and gradually build up pressure on the the torx stud !!
