Part 1 of the how-to video detailing the full disassembly of a GSG-5 carbine and reassembly with upgrade screws available from www.rrages.com. If you've ever wanted to know how to completely tear down your GSG-5 and were amazed at the lack of detail in your owner's manual, this is what you have been looking for. You'll learn how to strip the receiver, bolt assembly, and trigger pack--along with helpful tips to keep your GSG-5 running smooth for years to come.

Where did you get those push pins?
They sell the push pins at rrages also. Same place as the screw set
thnx for this series of video, some minor differences with the titanium
anniv. edition but the rrages upgrade kit has all the screws needed.
Same to ya, brotha!
Where did you get the pushpins you mentioned you have for removing the
forgrip and the stock?
I'm still having an issue with loose bolt jacket screws even after the
rrages upgrade and loctite. Any suggestions?
My gun has 4 pins that hold the receiver together not 3. You should remind
people not to lose the locking washer for the screw on the bolt stop.
Please could you list all the screws that you used for the teardown
Thanks for the Video! Now I know where that damn little bolt hold open
spring is and where it goes! Great vid!
Scruggs Just bought my GSG5 from a friend. Didn't have any type of manual
for the disassembly. This 4 part series makes it a breeze! GOOD JOB! THANKS!
You may have the anniversary edition SD.
Which would be better: The GSG with a plastic/ polymer receiver or the
Umarex with a metal receiver? Thanks.
very nice vid 5/5
@Chassidoftherebbe the screws that come with the gun wear loose over time,
if you dont replace them with better ones or at least tear it down and
re-tighten them every 8000 rounds or so the gun could have a serious
NEXT TIME YOU DO A "FULL TEARDOWN HOW-TO" VIDEO, MAKE SURE YOU DO JUST
THAT, AND DON'T DO IT AS AN AFTER THOUGHT! WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN JUST
MAKING REFERENCE TO THE THREE BOLT JACKET SCREWS. ALSO, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE
SIZE OF YOUR HARDWARE AND THE SIZE OF THE DRIVER NEEDED.
hey can anyone please help, i ost the "mystery spring" does anyone know
where i can buy one at?
Where do you get the Hk take down pins? Hate the ones that come on the gun.
The trigger and stock pins.
Glad you made it through the upgrade--way to go! You might think about
refinishing your SD with some matte black Duracoat for a more durable
finish. Most smiths can do it or you can give it a whirl provided you prep
the surfaces well.
hey thanks for the awesome vid man. i have few questions though, im having
a hard time getting the cocking tube/front sight off my gsg. i dont know
how big this difference is but at 5:20, you point to the three screws that
must be removed in order to get the cocking tube off. the very first screw
you point to, i have another screw off to the right of that one, so theres
four altogether. do you know what the fourth screw is? and im just not sure
what else could be holding that cocking tube on.
I didn't film that simply because my upgraded bolt jacket screws are in SO
tight (torqued them down and loctited them) that I think I might never get
them installed that good again. The original screws were self tapping, so
the more times you take those screws out, the less tight you will be able
to get them. The procedure for removal is as follows: Remove the bolt
carrier, and strip the bolt per the video. If upgrading the bolt jacket
screws, take one out at a time and replace accordingly.
thank you very much for these videos i just finished my upgrade on the 522
sd it was quick and easy thanks to you
Do a Google search for "Rrages hk pushpins"
which screws do you need to put lock tight on?
@pipersmitty that was the bolt stop... STill cannot remove it- those two
long screws are in the way- what are those, I dont see them on the earlier
