:shock: Want. Congratulations on the sticky, by the way. I want to have just a spare set of Riot's lying around. Especially with that DSG....

Great guide, Age.

Btw, macro is a camera setting meant for close-ups.

HAHAHAHA

It's the setting you use for close up photos. Like when people take a picture of something close to the camera, but it focuses on the background? If you use the Macro setting (little flower symbol) then it'll focus on the closer object.

I just wanted to give my thanks for this guide. It's helped me with my first teardown of a Dboys SCAR that had locked up. It runs beautifully, and now I just gotta figure out why my FPS isn't where its supposed to be. One thing at a time!

The order in which gears are shimmed doesn't matter as long as you get them all right.
