Blue Gun Splitting
Splitting Non-Weighted Blue Guns
Make sure you are using a non-weighted blue gun. Weighted blue guns contain metal and would be hazardous to split.
Step 1 - Remove Sights
Using a razor, belt sander, or a disc sander shave off the front and rear sights.
Step 2 - Remove Grip
Using a bandsaw cut the grip below the first finger area. We are using 1/8 inch 14 TPI Bandsaw Blades
Step 3 - Round Sharp Edges
Round sharp edges can tear the membrane during pressing.
Step 4 - Mount to Board
Using blue tape mount blue gun to sized board.
Step 5 - Split Blue Gun
Using a bandsaw split the blue gun down the middle.
Step 6 - Rebuild Thickness
Using blue tape rebuild the thickness of each blue gun with tape equally on both sides.
Now you are ready to configure your heat sink and blue gun to your pressing needs.
