How Do You Take The Nozzle/cylinder Out
Posted 21 June 2011 - 03:53 AM
Does anyone know how to take the cylinder out? How do you take B23/B24 apart so you can get to the cylinder? I don't want to break other parts trying to get this apart

after unswrewing that you now have to take out a 2mm diameter pin which is located at the back of the slide.
after that the pull out the single/auto lock, moving it around to find the opening, it is usually around between the single and auto mode. (becarefull of the small metal ball inside the lock don't loose it)
after that just unscrew the +screw.
and there you have it...
I hope this helps.

I eventually ended up seeing pictures of both nozzles, ordered the m17/m18c nozzle and used a file to match the shape of the FPG cylinder. I was also able to order the exact part I needed after 2 seperate calls to KWAs proshop. Without modifying a regular loading nozzle the magazine would not lock into place smoothly while opening the FPG and may get caught causing the loading nozzle to fail prematurely.
Currently I have my filed m17/m18c loading nozzle in my FPG and haven't had a problem yet. I was also running the replacement FPG nozzle in my m18c for a while until that cylinder broke as well (lasted much longer). The m18c is now using a regular loading nozzle. The only thing I can think of that causes this part to break is swelling around the pin holes of the cylinder or just an unlucky batch of cylinders made. They all seemed to break in the same place. If it's a matter of the pin holes swelling up that could be catching on the blow back unit which then gets hit again by the slide returning...
for reference here are some pictures of my M18C slide (top) and FPG slide (bottom)

The top is my M18C slide with a regular M17/M18 loading nozzle. The bottom is another M17/M18C loading nozzle with some hand filing done.

Once again top is stock, bottom is modified. Just a closer shot.
If you take the cylinders out you can see the slope a lot better, but I'm not taking these apart until I get a few more upgrades
