Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

This is my first ever post so apologies for any schoolboy errors.

I have a Harrington GAT from the early seventies which I had as a schoolboy. It was never any good but I would like to refurbish it - seals etc.
Anyone have any ideas how it comes apart? The grip side and trigger mechanism come apart with two screws but that's as far as I can get.

It's my Corgi James Bond Aston DB5 next week...

I had a Gat pistol years ago; you need to hold the barrel, extended of course, and turn, ie unscrew the end cap of the barrel; I think its knurled, or maybe even slotted. When it comes off so will the barrel and spring.

Many thanks I 'll try this. Although it looks like the end is riveted on by peening the end of the barrel over.
