STOP. If you've got a Spec1R do not try to pry the covers off, there's a spring loaded catch under each of the side covers that needs to be pushed to the rear to release the cover. If it's a Gunwind I can't help. Which is it?
thanks for the update on the shields! I'll have to get lots of them!
btw, I got a Suomy CD with my Gunwind that had shield installation instructions on it. I'll have to see if I can dig it up (may have gotten rid of it). If I can find it, I'll see if I can pull the video off and either put it on the net or email it to whoever needs it.
