The Weatherby PA-459 Tactical shotgun
In order to hydro drip my shotgun, I needed to take it appart.
I would only ship the buttstock and forend to the printer.
After searching for a while, I only found videos and sites
that showed basic field stripping procedures, not the entire
This site is an attempt at fixing that.
Unloading and safety check
- Pointing the shotgun in a safe direction, put the manual safety button
to the "SAFE" position.
- Pull the forearm (pump) back, which will extract any shell form the chamber.
- Push the forearm (pump) to feed the next shell.
- Repeat until all shells are removed from the shotgun.
- Check the chamber to ensure no sheel remains in the chamber, or in the magazine.
- Unscrew the magazine cap. The clicking sound is normal.
- The magazine blocker (long plastic bar) might fall from the shotgun if you tilt it down.
- Grab the barrel and push it forward until it is clear of the receiver ring.
- Pull back on the forearm (pump) to cock the hammer, then push it forward, clear
of the receiver. The bolt is attached to it.
- Lift the bolt up and back from the bolt carrier.
- To remove the bolt carrier, rotate it up, and off the forearm (pump).
- Remove the rubber butt pad with a small screw driver (Phillips head).
- Using a long screw driver with a 5.5mm Hallen head (or a long 5.5mm Hallen key),
unscrew the long stock retaining screw.
- To remove the trigger group, push out the pin from the left side.
- Once the pin is out, pull out the trigger group.
Parts to be printed
- These two parts are what will be hydro printed.
- Note that I did not take the pistol grip sleeve off, it was just tapped when it was dripped.
UPDATE: The parts were never printed. I could not find someone
to do it in Canada, on gun parts (even if I would not have shipped the whole shotgun,
only the specific parts). Buying a kit to do it myself is still available, but
in the end, I did not get it printed.
