I believe that I have created some MONSTERS!
It sounds like everyone had a great time at the first ETF meeting! Even with broken guns and the addition of a third eye-ball on Fatjudo's noggen, it appears that the team is off to a good start! My deepest apologies that I could not attend this meeting, my services were required in the assembly of crib, changing table, pack n' play, and the list goes on and on. Not to mention... painting! I'll post some pics of the nursery once we get the last little things done... but enough on non-airsoft matters!
Silent-but-deadly and Mabel appear ready to come out and play! If those dents in the can are any indication of what FatJudo's head will look like in the near future, may I suggest one thing... PASGAT helmets! $20 to save the noodles! One techie note... battery power does not increase BB speed... only the rate of fire! Only the spring (and to a lesser extent) and cylinder compression will effect fps of bb's. But no worries... it looks like it is fast enough!
I just ordered a bunch of internal upgrades for my M4 (my 5% allowance of tax return!) that should substantially help the compression and accuracy of this gun. Including:
1 x G&G Polycarb Piston Head w/Bearings
1 x Guarder Version 2 Cylinder Head
1 x G&G Version 2 Spring Guide with Bearings
1 x Guarder Nozzle for M4/M16
1 x Echo 1 / Modify SP120 spring
1 x CA 6MM Oil-less Steel Bushings
1 x MadBull Ver. 2 Precision Inner Barrel for M4
1x G&P polycarbonate piston with reinforced metal teeth
All from AirsoftGI.
I have to agree with Silent about buying locally... it will help the sport grow in your area. Unfortunately for me, we have no such stores anywhere near us. Only paintball stores. But try to shop locally if you can
and most importantly...
1x Custom-made MOSFET unit from an electrical engineer friend
MOSFET unit will brake your motor so that your spring isn't partially cocked in-between shots and will also reduce trigger delay... makes your gun more responsive.
I'll be tearing the M4 apart so I will try to show everyone the internals of a Version 2 gearbox if anyone wants to do some up-grades of their own. It is complex to learn but once you do it... it is very easy to remember. Any M4/M16, MP5 will have a Ver 2 gearbox... the P90, AUG, M14, AK47 and other guns have their own unique setup (see Levi's earlier post) of which I am NO help!
I'm glad everyone had a good time and I can't wait to run the back woods of Groton... in the mean time... keep building your skillz and camo gear... YOU"LL NEED BOTH WHEN I GET UP THERE!
