Here is an interesting article on do it yourself Airsoft gearbox repairs.

Tango - I know you're going to shudder and the metal shavings, broken bushing and chewed teeth in the section 1 picture, sorry.

I've taken apart a gearbox or two in the past and I have to say, it really isn't that bad. The most annoying thing comes when you have to reasemble it and the spring keeps bowing out making the gearbox come down uneven, knocking the anti-reversal over. It can take a while depending on the quality of the GB Shell, but it isn't extremly hard. Just be sure you have a few hours of time and are patient. The problem happens when people give up after 15 minutes.

A trick I have used to hold the anti-reversal latch in place is to place a neodymium magnet on the opposite side of the gearbox shell. Holds in where its supposed to be.

Take enough Gearboxes apart and you figure out some pretty easy tricks and techniques to getting that Gearbox shell on even with out much, if any difficulty. And I can also vouch for Twitch's magnet trick, it really makes it that much easier.
