Stripping a WE m1911 mini for paint

Recommended Posts

Hello as the title above says I want to strip the slider on my 1911m mini for paint, I can strip it all down but not sure how to get the last piece out that sits in front of the hammer any ideas? 
thanks

If it is the same as the WE MEU then there will be three screws that hold the nozzle housing in place - one cross/phillips at the front of the of the mech (remove this first) and two hex heads at the back near the hammer area which retain the rear sights in place.

once you remove the back two a little retention block/spacer will come out with the two screws still inside. Some wiggling of the nozzle housing may be needed for it to fall free. Be aware of the nozzle return spring that fits along the side of the unit, it usually doesn't fly out with any force but just be aware all the same.
