Maveric Slide Repair
Posted 18 June 2007 - 03:34 PM
All you need is:
And A cutting tool
1. Drill a hole that will fit your nail right in the middle of the 2 pieces that originally held the bar in place.
2. Cut the nail so there is ~1/4" of nail on either side of the cocking slide.
3. Re-wind the return spring around the nail.
4. Slap it all together and glue it in place. Sand the edges of the nail so you don't cut yourself or someone else.
And you're done! Congrats, your mav. works again.

First, if you were to slide the pin so one side was flush with the slider, and dremel off all that stuck out on the other side, you could glue one end in and then a piece of metal wouldn't be sticking out, waiting to tear fingers.
If you do decide to dremel it, don't leave it in the slider while you do - it can get hot enough to melt through the slider and maverick case.
Glad someone posted a writeup of this at last.

I think, though, that maybe instead of a nail, there could be some better alternatives. I do like my threaded rod + cap nuts.
Perhaps in addition to the nail, you could put some rubber grommets on top of the nail on each side to cover the metal. Also, the slide itself may start to experience cracking in its later days.
