ok on the back left of the gun there is a little bolt type thing there, you pull that out while holding on to the round knob in the back. pull that out and then pull on the t bar like your going to cock the gun.(after that i normally put a squegie through the front and push so that the bolt and striker can come out) i think that in order to get the t bar out you have to take off the sight rail and unscrew the piece underneath.( i would suggest that you dont mess with that unless you really have to.

if you have anymore questions i will try to help!

if i pull out the bolt will it mess up the spring in the t bar when i put the bolt back in?

... Use your manual ... if not


They're pretty much the same.

Newp, no springs. Just take it off with ease ... :)

The only part with springs that really POP out when you take them out is the VA spring and the striker spring.

Other than maybe your sightrail ...

Does anyone have the manual for the MR2 (pdf format)?

My biggest advice is take the gun apart on a white towel. It makes the peices easier to see, plus they will not roll away like they would on a table. Nothing is worse than looking for the spring that was there a minute ago.
Other than that just do it slowly and lay yhe pieces out by the way they came out of the gun.

The videos are a good way to learn. The guns are similiar and will give you a good idea what to expect

I'd REALLY ADVISE NOT TO TAKE OUT THE T-BAR. You need to unscrew the sight rails on top to do this (I think) and from the threads here on Spyder.tv, it's supposedly difficult to reinstall because of it's design. It's not really nessesary anyway.

BTW don't fret about taking about the striker, buffer, and bolt, it's very simple and easy.

I managed to strip the marker completely for cleaning and replaced a worn O-ring on the hammer. Put it all back no problems (no leaks) works just like new again. Thanks for manual guy's.
