S510 strip down (pic heavy)

Ok, I'll will try and remember everything..... I still had the pictures, but none of the text from the previous AAOC and it's been a few years!

I have to admit that this is one rifle that I regret selling every single day! :(

First of all you should make sure that the cylinder is completely empty and then..... remove the stock, scope and silencer. The stock (even this ginb) is held on by just a single Allen key bolt underneath the stock.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Next the barrel band. Unscrew the filll valve cap first and then the barrel band can be removed, it is held inplace with 2 grub screws.
Image

Ok, so now the anti-tamper (a-t) may or may not be present on your rifle...... When I originally did the strip down all discussion of a-t was somewhat taboo.
Image
Image

Once the a-t has fallen off you can remove the 6 bolt housing bolts.
Image
Image

Don't forget the o-ring between the valve block and bolt housing (transfer port)!
Image

The shroud is now more accessible, and unscrews off the bolt housing. It can be very tight, rubber gloves and some heat help a lot if needed.
Image

Remove the side plate which houses the mag indexing post and cam.
Image
Followed by the mag retaining clip.
Image

The barrel can now be removed by unscrewing the 3 grub screws, 2 above (1 is under the mag retaining clip), and 1 below.
Image
Image
Image

Image


The fill valve has 2 flats on the end, you can easily remove this with a spanner. The cylinder end plug on the other hand can be quite tight! I've found that a decent pair of 90deg circlip pliers (ground down) and a pair of rubber gloves make the best tools for removing it.

Image
Image


The cylinder can now be unscrewed from the valve housing, once again the rubber gloves help you to grip and twist.
Image

Remove the gauge dogleg which also reveals the firing pot retaining screw.
Image
Image

Remove the bolt at the back of the striker housing, and also the guide bolt at the top of the striker/hammer.
Image
Image

The valve block and striker housing are now separated. The firing pot can be unscrewed (don't forget the grubscrew mentioned previously). Standard setting of the firing pot is 57mm protruding.

Image

To separate the trigger housing from the striker housing you need to first remove the trigger guard, which is held inplace by 2 bolts. The trigger housing can now be removed, 1 bolt from above and one below.
Image
Image

The trigger sear plate can now be removed to access the Sears.
Image
Image

Remove the side lever mechanism, and guide bush.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


The breech seal is also easily replaced with the barrel removed.
Image

Sorry but I never got around to doing the shroud baffles as they can be a right pain to get out. If I do another I will document it.

Ps....... Good luck!

Kev.

What's the general concencus on a-t removal? I wouldn't like to be held liable for anything. :?

AT plugs aren't a legal requirement. They are normally fitted to prevent home servicing. Power adjuster ATs should be left in place if you can, this helps if you get pulled by the police. After all, why would the police be interested in whether or not you have replaced an O ring on the gauge?

Brilliant post Kev, everything you need to know about stripping down an S510.
Do you have anything like this for the S410.
Cheers

You can easily adjust the power way over or under without removing any of the A-T! :roll:

I tried this yesterday, I couldn't get the striker housing screw out or the barrel shroud off. I could put a piece of pipe down over the allen key for the striker screw for more leverage but I'd be putting serious pressure on it, when you say use a little heat for the barrel shroud what exactly do you mean, bic lighter? gas torch?
