*Guide* WA 2011 Maintenance

Postby Jake777 » Sat Sep 26, 2009 2:30 pm

**Please take note** Do this over a work surface with no carpet on the ground as there are a few small pieces.
You'll need an Allen wrench set, hammer, and silicone oil.
WA SVI/STI 2011 UPPER SLIDE MAINTENANCE
Remove The Magazine!
Alright slide the slide back to the first notch.
Image
Knock the pin out and pull the slide forward and off the frame.
Image
Push the guide rod forward.
Image
Unscrew the guide rod and remove the spring and guide.
Image
Push the outer barrel forward and unscrew it. Pull the chamber/inner barrel out of the slide.
Image
Flip the slide over and unscrew the rear sight.
Image
Unscrew the two screws under the rear sight and flip the slide back over.
Image
Slide the GBBU/nozzle forward and out of the slide.
Image
Remove the spring from the GBBU and pull out the nozzle/piston head.
Image
Wipe down and wash all these parts. Especially the entire inside of the slide.
Image
Drench the piston head/o-ring and where the gas goes very well. There is no such thing as too much lube in this area.
Image
Also lube the inside of the GBBU very well.
Image
Now lube the slide rails where they come in contact with the frame.
Image
Swab the inner barrel with a q-tip that is soaked in oil. Do this until the cotton comes back white.
Image
Alright now re-assemble your pistol and put a couple dots of oil onto the guide rod.
WA SVI/STI 2011 MAGAZINE MAINTENANCE
Flip the mag so you can see the bottom. There is a pin that you push in, and that allows you to slide the mag bumper forward and off the mag. The pin can be a plastic ring around the valve or here in this picture.
Image
Careful when the mag bumper comes off the spring shoots out. Use a cloth to clean where the spring went and the use a q-tip with silicone oil on it to help the spring slide better.
Image
Next unscrew the inlet/fill valve.
Image
I use a little Teflon on the threads to help protect the threads and create a better seal. On modern GBB’s there is usually an o-ring that should be oiled.
Image
Unscrew the Allen head screw on the back of the mag.
Image
Pull the screw out and lift up and out the valve blocker piece. Be VERY careful unscrewing the valve, and do NOT grab the round piece of the valve with pliers. If it gets smashed even a little the valve will stick. Now lube the three o-rings on the valve and re-assemble that the valve part.
Image
Lastly put a drop or two of oil into the gas release area of the magazine and on top of it.
Image

WA SVI/STI 2011 FRAME/GRIP MAINTENANCE
Unscrew the grip on the right side.
Image
Then the left. Don't worry if the safety pops out.
Image
Next unscrew the trigger guard screw.
Image
Now use an Allen key that sits on the outer diameter of the threads that screw set in. Knock it out (may need to use hammer)
Image
The silver piece that screw held in can be knocked out now and the grip can be removed from the frame.
Image
Make sure the hammer is cocked and the slide safeties are up. Wiggle the left safety off. Followed by the right safety and the beavertail grip safety.
Image
You can see the hammer pin and remove the hammer for maintenance or replacement.

Haha mine isn't completely finished. I need to show what parts need to be lubricated on the frame/hammer area. I'll finish the rest in a little bit.

This guide is much more in-depth then mine, but it's only useful for one pistol. Mine is a general guide that can be used for any standard gas pistol. They both have their purposes, but I don't think I can say that one is "better". :P

what slide and barrel set is that?
Pro tip - Tokyo Marui gas blowback pistols DO NOT need metal slides to run propane. Trust me I own one.
Follow up - I don't suggest metal propane adapters. The one I had broke my mags in < 3 weeks. Plastic adapters have many more pros than metal ones. Don't believe me? HolyHandGrenade has the most experience on the forum (that I've heard of) with any adapters.

An OEM Xcellerator outer barrel(brass color) and I believe it was a Prime aluminum slide.
