Proper way to replace recoil rod assembly in MP5 bolt group?

Can this be done without armorer's involvement?
How?
Thank you in advance,

To be precise:
How to insert recoil rod assembly into the bolt carrier without damaging nylon recoil rod guide?
Thanks,

Just pop it in there. Use a mallet if you need to.
Wiggle it back and forth, it will fit in there with pressure.

Clone or real HK?

Sometimes the clone builders use G3 recoil rod parts including the nylon washers which tend to be too large to easily slide into the MP5/94 bolt carrier. The simple solution is to lightly sand the OD of the nylon washer with a Dremel sanding drum until it just fits into the BC.

Real thing - HK MP5 bolt group and recoil rod.
So - the brute force is the way ...
Thank you very much,

Yeah, but it doesn't take much force. Put a little lube on it, put the tip in the hole, and rotate the free end in a circular motion while pushing forward and it will slip right in.

(how's that for things that sound dirty but aren't)

Hi Dave,
That sounds great (and let me add, also pretty darn applicable to other things except the part about free end)
Really thank you for a great advice.
I will do the lube and wiggling thing and let you know how it went...
With warm regards,
