Project M9: Black or Silver?
Posted 10 April 2014 - 02:42 PM
If anyone is wondering how I did this, here is my method. I have done this to two other gas pistols, and I think this is the easiest way to do it without spending too much on sandpaper. The price really jumps up at about 1000grit. You really shouldn't need more than like an 11 by 9 inch sheet of each which is a pretty standard size. It will last longer if you use it wet (just with water).
1) strip the gun completely (including the slide), you can leave the hammer mechanism in
2) tape off/stuff the hammer mechanism with a tissue/paper towel so nothing gets in
3) personally I think it is easiest to start with 60grit sandpaper and go easy on it
8) polish if you want
9) clean it out, put it back together, and shoot!
10 MAKE SURE TO LUBRICATE THE GUN. It will become completely dry by the time you are done. Firing gas pistols dry of lube usually does not cause harm, but it will function pretty rough.
**always sand everything in one direction, and then go over it again in the opposite.
You may need to take it apart again after testing it for cleaning purposes. You should only have to take apart the slide UNLESS you did not properly protect the hammer area. That will get you in trouble. The area most likely to be an issue is the area around the gas valve. I can't remember what it's called. The thing that moves back and forth LOL. That may stick when you rack the slide when the mag is in, if you have not cleaned around the slide properly. The weird thing is it will be fine when the mag is not in.
