Issues With Opening A Vulcan - The Slide
Posted 07 July 2009 - 10:10 PM
I assembled a vulcan, handle, slide, batteries and all to make sure it was in perfect working order. That may not have been the best decision in retrospect as I now want to open it to remove the AR. I laboriously removed all the screws, the barrel and the battery pack but I cannot for the life of me remove the loading slide.
It clicked together when I assembled it and brute force won't work. Blame my poor upper body strength perhaps but I can't pry it open. If I used a tool such as a screwdriver, I'm afraid that pressure on the gun's outer shell would simply crack it.
There are others with this problem, of that I'm positive. Are there any suggestions on how to remove the slide for an unenlightened soul such as myself? I'm relatively new to all this and some advice from some veterans would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking I might have to resort to using a vise or a dremel but that seems drastic and I would rather not damage the slide handle. Here's hoping I'm just missing something really obvious that will just make me /facepalm when you mention it.

There might be better ways, but I tried several and this was the only one that worked for me.

A crowbar or claw hammer are probably much better ideas, though.
Probably dead by now, or something.

(makes you think....)
They say, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." What?!?!?!?!
I say, "Screw that! Give me a bigger gun!"
