I fully strip the slides on my P99's after every range session. Striker, extractor, safety plunger, everything out on the table. I have never dissassembled the reciever however, never felt the need.
SW - That is the great thing about the P99, there is nothing to wear out. Everything in the slide is held in by spring loaded plungers. Push the plunger down and the extractor and striker safety just comes right out. No roll pins to punch. About as easy as a Glock Slide.
Kewl. Any order to put them back in?
i never thought of taking that all apart... i'll have to take a look at it when i get home
Do you guys know if there's any way to get the brass coloring off the slide, from where the casing contacts with the slide?
I tried Hoppes on the HK and it didn't work. They make a stronger Hoppes copper solvent. Its not cheap, though, and I would only need it for that 1 thing. So, I haven't tried that yet.
well... as far as i know it's not affecting the performance of the gun... it's just a little annoying that there is a substance on my slide and i can't get it off
To get most of the brass circle off the breach face, use a solvent like hoppes and a bronze phosphoruse brush (looks like a big toothbrush with bronze brisles). The bronze is softer than the steel and tennifer finish and will scrub the brass circle off. If the brush makes a copper colored residue on the slide, do not worry. Using alittle more solvent, like hoppes will take that off.
