How To Disassemble The FAMAE SG-540 and 542 Rifle

There has been a ton of confusion regarding how to disassemble the gas system on the FAMAE rifles. In reality it’s a very simple process and rather than requiring removing one of the bolts, it simply requires a 180 degree rotation of the retaining screw to release the assembly.
