    they are hard to come by...I got mine from UNCo a while back and they sold out very quick. I would do the stock alarm at WGC,UNCo, and Global and wait to see if they get them back in stock. My longshot wishlist is for Guarder to come out with the inner slide, steel chamber and new version fiber reinforced frame set.

    like I said before, I have the creation slide installed in mine with RTV and it doesn't rattle one bit. In fact when I first did a "pre-install" without the RTV, I recall that it didn't have much of a play then.

    haha..figured as much...probably would have rip apart the gun and buy a new frame slide set

    yes thank you...I mean the plastic nozzle. Most of my gun is RTVed. If I need to ever take it apart, how difficult would taking the parts apart with the RTV glued in there?

    on my 5.7, I have the guarder ss barrel RTVed to the chamber, creation metal inner slide RTVed to the outer slide, blow back unit RTVed to the slide, and also the hammer assembly RTVed to the lower frame. My first guarder frame cracked at the two screw holes and now everything seems to stay put and no minute movement of any of these parts and no cracks that I can see. There's tremendous amount of jolt and stress that goes through this gun when it blows back and RTVing seems to do the trick. Only thing left that worries me is when the plastic blow back unit slams into the metal chamber, it makes a loud clack that sounds like the bbu might crack..haven't figured out how to remedy that or if it even needs remedying but seeing that spare parts are not readily available, I don't want to really take a chance.

    no just wondering wondering.....the aluminum barrels with holes enlarging etc. I'm just caught off guard about the non magnetic stainless steel. Got the gun when it first came out and just recently brought it back out...interesting gun...just "wondering" compared to aluminum outer barrels vs. stainless steel.

    interesting...was not aware of that. I wonder what the durabilty comparison is with aluminum?

    sorry to bring back an oldish thread and not sure if this has been addressed before but I have the threaded Guarder outer barrel and the 10mm to 14mm adapter thats on WGC says it's made of "stainless steel" and on Guarder's site it says "stainless". Well anyway I just put a magnet to both of them and neither sticks...I checked the magnet with other steel and it's ok. I never bothered to check before because it does very much look like stainless steel. What's up with this...???

    by any chance can we get a photo of this?...also my remedy for the two screw holes in the lower frame(Guarder) where the hammer assembly sits that broke on mine and had to "replace"with a new Guarder lower frame, now I silicone gasket the whole hammer assembly to the frame with the silicone surrounding the two screw holes. This i think prevents the hammer assembly from jarring from recoil and eventually cracking the screw holes. I did as advised in this thread the silicone in the hop chamber/outer/inner barrel now I might do the same to the FN15 part area also...this gun is becoming mostly silicone gasket.

    just noticed on my guarder framed 5-7 that the hammer component was loose and noticed that the 2 screws holding it down weren't tight..so I gently tried to tighten them up and found that both screws turned freely without stopping(as though the threads were stripped) So I tooked them out saw that the threads on the screws were fine and took out the whole hammer component and found out the 2 female holes molded into the frame had cracked and on one of them the whole half just broke off. I don't think these guarder kits are any more "reinforced" than the marui ones, possibly even less. And mind you, when I put this kit together I was very sensitive about not overtightening screws into plastic female threads. Also I've only put 2 mags(GG) into this gun. very disappointing...back to metal bodied guns...

    yes I got the guarder replacement slide and grip and everything fits just perfect...just as you would disassemble any gun just be careful to remember where everything came out of and don't let any springs go flying off. Only trying part of it was the taking out the rear sight and the gas chamber...the rear sight needs to be pryed from the rear of the sight fairly forcefully..it doesn't come out straight up...I used a small flathead screw driver at the bottom rear of the sight and pop it out. The gas chamber also didn't want to come out without a fight...what I did was insert four rounded toothpicks between the walls of the slide and the chamber to spread out the slide wall and pull the chamber out. Putting everything back in was relatively easy because most every part is part of a modular component so it's a matter of unscrewing couple of screws and popping them back in...
