Rampage drum magazine drum magazine
Posted 01 December 2012 - 11:49 AM
I took apart a rampage 25 dart drum magazine so I could paint it and took a bunch of pictures. This magazine uses 12 screws total all the same size, and 2 springs (only one of which will be removed). The only tool you will need is a philips head screwdriver. I used a sandwich bag to hold all
There are five screws on the front (grey part) of the magazine and five screws on the back (clear part). I started with the front.
This is what the magazine looks like after the front plate has been removed. Go ahead and flip the magazine over at this point to get to the back plate.
After the screws have been taken out of the back plate, slide it straight up off the slot. The jam release knob should stay on the inner drum and not come off with the back plate, but if it does be careful because...
...there is a tension spring right underneath the knob. Take note of it's location and set the spring aside. Turn the magazine over again.
The drum wall slides right off easily.
Take out the center rod. It just sits in there, so no tools are needed.
This is where the dart pusher connects to the inner drum. The mechanism here is much like a tape measure as you will see. If you don't plan on painting the inside of the drum then skip this next step.
To remove the dart pusher I tilted it to the side, then gently pulled on the grey plastic holding it opposite the side I was tilting the black plastic rod to. It popped right out.
Here are the two pieces separated from each other.
Here are the final two screws. If you don't want to paint the inside of the drum you can just remove these two screws without detaching the dart pusher from the inner drum.
The dart pusher slides right out after the screws are removed. Take note of the way the dart pusher comes out of the magazine, it will need to go back in the same way when it's put back together.
There are two tabs like this on the magazine that you can pry apart to separate it into two halfs. I didn't because they appeared to be glued, and also because I can paint this piece as it is.
and here are all the pieces ready to be sanded, prepped, and painted!
If you have any comments or questions just post away. This is my first post on these forums and I hope that some one finds this useful. I'm tearing apart a few different guns to be painted, and I have found that the guns usually need to be broken down further than you would need to for modding. If there is an interest, I can take pictures and post more break downs like this. Let me know what you think!

P.S. Your Maverick paintjob looks awesome.

I'll stand on my head and gargle peanut butter for 70 dollars.

What the heck did you do to your finger? 0.0
Also, nice job on the pics, they'll make for a valuable and helpful addition to the internals directory.
I'm the only respectable person here. The rest of the NIC are pretty much just child molesters.

HasReadCoC, that's paint from the Maverick paint job lol. I hold pieces in my hand to spray them, it's the best work table in the world. I don't wear gloves though because I've had folds of latex brush up against wet paint before and cause me lots of grief. I've found it's better to just paint bare handed.
