I can take it apart its putting it back together.hold onto the carrier and pull on the bolt, or push the whole bolt and carrier backwards in the receiver until it unlocks. Practice and you'll get used to it.
It takes a few times apart to remember how to do it.
My 1st H&K rifle was purchased in 1977 and I've done it a few time since then!
It's not hard, you just have to know the right technique.I can take it apart its putting it back together.
Before you rotate the bolthead you have to pull it a little off the locking piece.I can take it apart its putting it back together.
+1 on LandPimps technique; new locking lever springs can be pretty stiff. Takes just a few seconds with the chanel locks.can also cheat and use a pair of soft(rag works) faced pliers/chanell locks to hold the locking thingy(sorry cant remember name) on the carrier down or can press it down with a wooden hammer handle, then put on the bolt head/locking piece.
Oops. Yep, that's right, thanks for the correction. It was a little confusing the first time I took it apart as I was expecting it to be an exact copy of the MP5, only larger. But I knew that if it came apart that easily, it had to go together just as easily, and that groove in the bolt head was the key.I use AviatorDave's method. You really only need to move the locking lever a very small amount to let it clear the bolt and have the taper do the rest of the work for you as you turn the head into place. A firm handshake and guitar player callouses are the only tools I use. Oh yeah, don't push the head onto the LP any further than you have to. No sense having to unlock the rollers since you did everything else the easy way!
PS - Dave, step one should read bolt carrier, but we all knew what ya meant.
