Disassembly of M1 S90?

Random Gadfly

Recommended Posts

I have a "new to me" M1 and the finish needs to be redone. Is the total disassembly of an M1 possible by the average person with good mechanical skills and tools, but not a gunsmith. Or is this something best left to a professional? I have the tooling to give it a cerakote finish and need the gun totally disassembled for media blasting. Any input on disassembly or finish is appreciated.

Its incredibly easy to disassemble. Unscrew the magazine cap and remove the barrel and foregrip. Pull the charging handle out and the bolt assembly will slide right out. There is 1 pin holding the trigger assembly in. Drive it out and the trigger assembly will slide right out. Using a phillips head screwdriver with a little lube on it to remove the butt pad (the small holes in the pad are where you slide it in) Using a 13mm deepwell socket and an extention, you can then remove the nut that you will see inside the stock. Once that is done, slide the stock off and you should be good to go for refinishing the gun. Good luck!
