Disassembly and Operating Principles
The Calico is really
two separate weapons systems. The rimfire version is significantly different
from the 9mm version. As with any autoloading weapon, you will want to remove
the magazine, and check the chamber before beginning disassembly. I have
included sections on disassembling the magazines, but do not recommend it.
The magazines should rarely need cleaning or lubrication, and they are very
intricate assemblies. They are also very costly, because of the short supply
and restrictions of the 1994 magazine ban.
