pipe+bushing combo (think plusbow)
bolts to hold bushing and spring inside pipe
First start with your stock maximizer. I expect that your front part is totally broken off and is being held on with the spring
You need to get the orange cap off. there are tabs that need to be pushed in with a screwdriver.
Before (sorry for the bad pic)
Next you need to push the metal pin holding the spring out. The whole front part will come off.
Next you need to make a replacement front end. So tape, goop and secure your bushing in with screws. Next drill below it and put a thick bolt through. You will need to cut your pipe to match the original front part.
Now all that is left it to do is get the spring through the bolt (hardest part). And hot glue and tape the replaced front part on.
And you're done!
Now how to actually open it!
First you need to get the two purple parts off. I used a variety of flathead screwdrivers. Good luck and don't hurt anything. This thing is rare enough!
Then take out the four screws on the side. The one on the back has a nut on the other side. I think the maximizer has a record for the least ammount of screws for it's size.
The plunger head hits the end if this.
Picture of the internals without the priming bar.
The green piece moves when the green priming bar pushes it down. this allows the catch to be disengaged. If you want to disengage this lock just hot glue it in the down position. And that black bar is the most breakable part on the maximizer. There is not a very good reason to open it if nothing is broken. I opened mine to show how to do it here and I was interested in how it worked. And to disengage the trigger lock.
Questions? comments? flames? This is my first writeup. Hope I get a spot in the directory (hint hint).
