Sorry about the aim talk. I checked all the mods on the Crossfire and i just don't understand what to use in the minimization mod.

I tried a string but i didn't pull it back enough.

Yes, fix your fucking grammar. Is it impossible to hit the Shift Key before hitting the "i" key?

Take off the slider.

Thread the zip tie through the slot in the case.

Make sure the the zip tie is in front of the hook shaped piece on the plunger.

Once it is secure, lock the zip tie onto itself.

*Optional-use vinyl tubing to cover the exposed zip tie.



Hope I helped.

Then pull it back some more!

What exactly are you not understanding? Where are you in the minimization? Might it not be cocking due to a broken cache? I doubt the last one

Pictures do worlds of help, even more when there's explanations with them. Give us some more info and we'll see what we can do to help.

Sorry I'm not very good with computers, I have no clue how to get pictures in here, but i know that I am at the end of the Cutdown/Minimization mod. I think the string i was using was to flexible. I'm going to try a thicker one.

Thanks sputnik, you helped a lot.

I took picture wire, cut little slits in the chunk of plastic that comes up to grab the bar on the slider, wrapped that around a few times, secured it, then I drilled a hole in the back, treaded that through then used a keyring, so mine cocks with a keyring now. Hope that helps.

That's a really good idea. How hard is it to cock? When I put on the zip tie it's pretty hard to cock.

I can cock it by snagging it on the hooks on my SNAP. Its pretty easy to cock, and it makes in PERFECT for a holster.

I understand what JATDO is talking about. The first time i did the minimization on a CF, I just looped a Zip Tie through the slider, and no matter how hard I pulled back, it wouldn't catch. Ive found that attaching the zip ties to the original metal rod, and then joining the Zip ties together in the back is a very effective solution.

I would love to do that but I have very limited supplies. I can't even get my hands on a drill. :unsure: I think I'm gonna try it with what I have.

Oh and CrazyIvan VI I can get my single zip tie to work I just have to hold it a bit.

He has already been told that, and has already stopped speaking in aim talk. His replies are now fairly grammatically correct. The same cannot be said about your replies. Please don't try to scold people for using bad grammar if your grammar is just as bad or worse.

I just picked up a crossfire about a week ago. Don't know why on earth you would take the slider off. The gun seems so naked without it. It has a similar plunger system as the maverick. What I did for my mav is I used the metal tube that goes up the turret. I trimmed it down to size, and used the same pieces that normally hold it on the turret to fasten it to the bolt slot. It even works with the extention spring, and goes back forward so it doesn't get in the path of the plunger.

I have pics if that didn't explain enough.

Just another idea if you have a spare maverick.

I know what your talking about when you say that the Crossfire looks naked without the slide. When I took off the slide I did it so that it could be easily holstered or hidden. I got the two pack so I have another one that i will keep the slide on. :D
What you did to your Crossfire sounds really cool, but I am really confused about what you did. I have a spare mav, do you think you could post some pictures?

Oh and thanks for backing me up. :D
