Next, we need to remove the gas tube and piston. If you look just in front of the rear sight, and on the right side of the rifle, you'll see a lever you can move up. Move this up about 45 degrees. (see figure one) This removes a block and allows you to lift the gas tube and piston out.
It may be a bit tight getting the gas tube to separate from the gas port on the barrel -- be firm, but gentle. You don't want to bend anything -- parts are getting hard to find in the US. Also, watch for the piston to fall out from the gas-tube. It'll come out the end nearest the muzzle of the rifle.
