S&W Model 1000 Cycling issue
« on: October 30, 2009, 09:55:07 AM »
I have a S&W Model 1000 Super1200 and I am having issues with it cycling. From what I can find, it seems there is a shock absorber washer in the gas system that breaks down and turns to tar, gumming everything up.  My question is has anyone taken this gun apart to this extent and how hard is it?  I am FAR from a gunsmith.  Also, it looks like getting this washer is a task in itself.  Has anyone used an alternative or made their own?  Any help would be great.

You should be able to order a new one through S&W support.  They are fairly easy to replace.  Check with support and find out if the replacement is an "upgraded" material.  You do need to break them down every year and clean, grease them up.  The fouling is causing them to deteriate.

S&W does not carry them  There are only 2 companies in the U.S. (that I can find) that make them.  And The closest gun shop is about an hour and a half a way that carries them.  Good news is that it only costs about $3.  Bad news is that I am hearing from everyone that  it's pretty much a gunsmith job. If the damage is not already done, it will cost around $50 to fix.  If it has been bad for a while (I've only had the gun about 6 months or so), then I am better off scrapping the gun for what it will cost to fix it.  And right now, I can't afford a gunsmith.  SOOOOOOOOOO..... If anyone on the east side of Michigan would care to loan their gunsmithing abilities.... @--0--0121

Well, I THINK I have solved the problem.  I took the gun down as far as my knowledge would allow, and cleaned  to the best of my abilities.  Tried it out yesterday and it seemed to cycle fine.  But I am still concerned that I only temporarily solved the problem.  I am heading to Saginaw in a few days and I will pick up that part and get ahold of you.  Thanks!

Works.  Make sure you pick up an extra one... they will wear out.

I'd be careful if the buffer is damaged... if you shoot it with that washer out or too damaged you can damage the feed tube.  Go to home depot and find a really thick hose washer that is the same diameter if you have to.
