General Tips and/or Tricks to disassembling my AEG?

My advice? Don't. Pulling apart an airsoft gun will most likely leave you with a busted gun. If you are just doing it for shits and giggles I suggest you don't. If you are looking to pimp it out internally, new gears, new wiring, new compression parts ect, take it to a gun doc.

Good internal parts are only half the battle. Getting those parts to work together perfectly is the biggest fight. Toronto has many excellent gun docs to visit.

if that's your main..don't..
if that's your cheaply bought crap, sure..if you don't care if you can't get it working again..

I myself bought a broken gun to work on..and fixed it to work again..
I myself found M4 is easily to learn as a first gun because of all the resources..almost EVERY m4 has a tutorial somewhere...ak styles maybe not..

internally they are the same...but again, I watched hours and hours of gun tech videos and tutorials and then practice on my broken m4 that I don't care if it doesn't work..

Don't just take it apart for the sake of taking it apart.

I'm the only one who has worked on my guns but most of the changes have been simple stuff like changing out a spring, cleaning and re-lubricating a used gun I bought...

The first time I opened my m4 I broke my selector plate, and that was after I had watched a half dozen or more videos on the breakdown process.

I say all this because working on my own guns hasn't been without problems. Ive learned that not all parts are created the same. Fractions of a multimeter difference between one part and the next make a difference, the shore value of rubber between one bucking and the next can cause your gun to stop feeding. If you really are insistent on doing work yourself I've learned when starting out replace one part at a time, then test it. If it works replace another part and then test it again. If you replace several parts at once it will be difficult to diagnose problems should they arise.

Just my 2 cents.

I've opened up guns before and I can honestly say sometimes I did more harm than good. I've opened something for a repair and broke something else in the process as well. Typically, you don't take this to heart but just consider it as "tuition" for learning by trial and error from your mistakes. Spent lots of "tuition" opening up my first AEG in 2011 when prices were only starting to dip.

It will take much longer to put it back together than the time estimate you made before taking it apart.

Man up pussies! Open up that gearbox and lube her nicely! No one likes a dry gearbox.

opening for what purpose? I was kind of forced to open mine to replace the spring. Even at that point I used good youtube videos for every step of disassembly.

Make sure to watch some Re-assembly videos as it took me 4 tries to figure out all my mistakes without watching the videos.
