Beginner's Guide to... Loading CAW ACP cp-hw type Cartridges.




Your modelgun will only function correctly if your cartridges are prepared and loaded correctly. This is intended as a Step by Step guide on how to do this.
Cleaning of used cartridges will be dealt with in a seperate article...

First of all, unscrew the cap from the cartridge and empty the case of it's components.


Tools required are

1. Loading tool (Note CAW supply their own version with their modelguns) 2. Cotton Bud (Q-Tip) 3. Small Brush.
Mascara brushes are ideal for this! Get your Girlfriend, Wife, Mother or just go yourself to the nearest Make Up shop and borrow sample brushes (Debenhams are ideal Wink

Silicone or Lithium based grease make perfect lubricants



The all important Cap, in this case Marushin 7mm (Note photos showing Red coloured caps are MG 7mm alternatives)





Check that all the parts are present... Cartridge case, Primer, Cap, Piston, Cartridge Top... 






Step 1. Run the mascara brush through the cartridge case and over the threads to ensure cleanliness





Step 2. Dip the Cotton Bud in either only a little Silicone Oil and smear the inside of the cartridge bore. This aids lubrication and gives a little extra smoke effect too.




Step 3. Place the "Primer" into the cartridge, smaller diameter in first




Step 4. Squeeze a little grease from the tube, this much should be plenty, and smear it over the outside edges of the cap. DO NOT smear grease onto the powder charge in the cap.




Step 5. Place the cap into the cartridge, powder charge facing up





Step 6. Push the cap down to the base of the cartridge using the loading tool.







Step 7. Ensure that the "Primer" lies flush with the base of the cartridge when the cap has been pushed into place




Step 8. Smear a little grease around the rubber 0-Ring on the piston. Check the 0-ring for splits or cracks. Damaged rings will not seal correctly and must be renewed.




Step 9. Making sure the firing pin of the piston is grease free,
position it into the cartridge like this and push gently until it sits flush with the top of the threads.




Step 10. Screw the cartridge's top into place, then using the smaller diameter end of CAW's loading tool, gently ease the piston down further into the cartridge. ONLY as far as the tool allows. Do NOT force the piston any further as there is risk of the cap igniting.







and there you go, ready to move onto the next one
