Re: Upgrades

A bearing on either the piston head or spring guide is fine. As long as you at least have one. JG motors are great, just kinda slow. My field tech said MOSFETs are useless. Probably saying stuff like that because they can't sell it to you. Sorbo is fantastic as it 1) reduces stress 2) dampens noise...

Re: Upgrades

Guarder SP130 is about equivalent to an M140. SP rating is based on .25g ammo, not .20g like the M rating. That is fine with me, I plan on using .30s once I finish overhauling it. If you want to use an SP130, you should definitely get a better piston, a metal spring guide if you do not have one alr...

Yes, you would if you want it to last.

Re: whats wrong with my gun?

If things are heating up, as you theorized in that earlier post, there is too much stress on the motor. I am guessing bad shimming, which is probably too tight. Also, what battery are you using?

Re: whats wrong with my gun?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5Uv6cxb_JA&feature=youtu.be So the gearbox is completely stock and unopened? If so, what exactly happened before the problem? Did it occur randomly, or when you installed the motor? FYI: You probably shouldn't pull the trigger when the motor is pushed into the ge...

Last thing. When I was looking at the AEG springs on GI, how come a Systema spring costs significantly more than the other brands?


Thanks.


Because Systema is overpriced crap, which does not perform better than others. I would pay $5 for a spring.

I get that sound when the bevel gear is not correct.

Re: Whiny gears

Of course the first thing I upgraded was the sh*tty compression :roll: I only fired once with my finger over the nozzle. I'm gonna crack it open right now and see what happens EDIT When I opened it up, the piston shot forward a bit, and the sector gear teeth were pointed up :shock: Unfortunately, i...

Re: Whiny gears

Yes, if you put your finger over the air nozzle, and you have very good air seal, the piston will be stuck back because of the good air seal. If you fired it more than a single shot, the sector gear will engage on the piston's last teeth, and cause premature engagement. (I know this from experience)

Actually, I have had ASGI "heat treated" sears for about a year now using a Laylax 170Sp spring, and other than some wear on the coating, the actual metal has not worn down at all. :)
