Note

Recoil damper rod does not need to be held when using the damper rod tool.

g. While holding recoil damper rod (4) with one hand, gently push down on 1/8-in. x 12-in. welding rod 1/2-in. (12.7 mm). Hold for 30 seconds to allow fluid to flow into lower reservoir.

h. Repeat steps d through g until damper reservoir is full of fluid.

i. Using a clean, dry wiping rag, wipe off top of recoil mechanism (1) and around filler hole (19).

j. Install a new preformed packing (18) on damper housing plug (3). Install and tighten damper housing plug (3).

k. If damper rod tool (11) was used, remove straight headed pin (12) and damper rod tool (11).

l. Using a new clean, dry wiping rag, wipe off all traces of damper fluid from top of recoil mechanism (1) and around damper housing plug (3).

m. Remove recoil mechanism (1) from vise.

n. Lay recoil mechanism (1) on a clean, dry surface.

o. Remove rag from top of recoil mechanism (1).

p. Pull out on indicator rod (6), remove second lock pin (9), slowly release tension on indicator rod (6) until it stops.

q. Inspect pencil mark (if applicable), or place recoil housing cap (14) on recoil mechanism (1) and check alignment of recoil housing cap hole (17) and recoil damper rod hole (16). If the indicator rod (6) retracted beyond the second hole (8), the pencil mark is no longer visible, or the recoil damper rod hole (16) does not align with the recoil housing cap hole (17), reinstall second lock pin (9) and repeat servicing steps 1 through 4.

r. Remove remaining lock pin (7).

Any damper fluid remaining on spring segments or spacer will affect damping operation, causing possible gun damage.

s. Using a clean, dry wiping rag, wipe all traces of damper fluid from damper housing cap (13).

t. Check spring assortment segments (2) and recoil spring sleeve spacer (15) for evidence of damper fluid. If needed, use a new clean, dry wiping rag to wipe off any remaining fluid.
