Spring Seal Removal

I imagine you stick in the small end and pry it out.

 

For what it's worth, I have never owned/used a pair of snap ring pliers, and I've always just used my cold steel knife to pry it out and my fists of steel to squash it back into the tube.

 

I imagine similar results could be had using the bolt. I wouldn't really suggest it though ... because even though the bolt handle is very durable, it's generally a bad idea to use small gun parts as pry tools, as they can get damaged and do an inferior job compared to easier to use, more durable actual pry tools, like a screwdriver to knife.

Hey Duggan,

 

I agree.....anyway, it seems to me that the stock spring seal/retainer is kind of an odd piece IMO..........I would prefer a real snap ring and groove or maybe incorporate the end cap as the retainer and eliminate one part.

 

Thanks!
