    Start reading at post 16: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...pleted-at-last!

    There is a way, unless you are unlucky like me and get a pair of westars w/ threadlock.

    Nice one. Thanks mate. Ill see if it can be done on mine when i get home from work.
    I bet mine has thread lock though. That would be my luck.

    By the way, love the armor mate.

    Yeah as long as there is nothing like threadlock in there you should find it very easy. Let us know if you have any troubles. Foxbatkiller I still feel a personal quest to get yours to come apart. If I am out that way with my job we will have to try to tackle it together.

    If you come out here for SDCC or something you're welcome to give it a shot but I think you will end up with sore arms and no progress like I did.

    Well, looks like ive got the thread lock version as well. I might try a little heat on the end. Dont know which thread lock it is but the stuff we use at work softens with heat.
    The plastic hand grip on my ones seems to creak and click on their own when in the stand. Dont know how they are fixed either.

    The grips are held on with 2 allen head bolts from the bottom, under the trigger. The trigger is glued in. Best way to get the trigger out. Wrap a socket extension in masking tape, so you dont mess the chrome, or wrap it in sheet. The longer the extension the better. Put it through the trigger and either tap it down with a hammer, or just push it hard. Make sure the gun is supported on the ground or something.
