    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    I believe I've posted before on a front-installed FET (in my case, Extreme Fire's SW-AB-LONG). Out of curiosity, where in the stock would you install your FET and how will you run your wires?

    U don't tape your inner barrels to create a firm fit into the outer barrel?

    Actually, it was TAG themselves that customed the webbing. I called them up to do it. Mind you it's expensive...basically almost double the price of the Banshee (same with the pouches when I asked them to remove the coyote webbing). It's a pity TAG doesn't do this as standard. Their PC and chest rigs would look better without the coyote webbing all over the MC or A-TACS.

    You guys can actually get your Banshee customised. This is what I did to mine to change the webbing to A-TACS webbing :- http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/161225-pictures-of-your-plate-carriers/page__st__960__p__2405004#entry2405004

    Woops, not seen one of these yet? Have a look at this post :- http://www.tkoverkill.com/showthread.php?tid=618&pid=5970#pid5970 As you can see you just plug it into the BB feed of the hop-up chamber. You just use an allen key to remove them. I don't recommend using pliers or tweezers as you don't wanna damage where the BB feeds in. About modding a real PMag for the Sopmod magazine, here are some pix from Echigoya - mind you they're not cheap at more than USD$100/mag but believe it or not, they sold out here!! Sorry, taken with my iPhone :- 1) sanding down the internal mag 2) Before/After of PMag cut 3) Marking where needs to be cut 4) Shove it in

    Clarification? I use the Freedom Art Mag Pipe but what's the "Freedom Art Mag" itself? I use the Mag Pipe all the time 'cos I want to use my PMags (and I don't care about the bolt stop feature). The Mag Pipe has an O-ring and has never fallen out of the hop chamber BB feed even when I yank out my PMags. The only cost is a few extra BB's wasted in the Mag Pipe.

    It'll be for you, until it breaks . OK sorry, I didn't mean to rub it in...or maybe I did . All seriousness though do enjoy it. Now if only you tried the recoil modded version of the PTW!!

    Talking about barrel bases, I don't think this will affect anyone else but if any of you do buy this :- Be careful with the built-in barrel base of this with the Madbull DD AR15 Lite barrel nut. It's actually a little too thick for Madbull nut so I needed to get it milled down the base a little from 4mm down to 3mm in thickness. Megalomaniac, I guess you're talking about this product instead :- If so, when you're talking to ARS, please ask him for the thickness of that base and if it'll be fine with the Madbull barrel nut. Feel free to quote my name in expressing your concern. He'll know what you mean 'cos he did the milling for me last week.

    I don't know if this is new or not (and I did read about the Lonex version) but Eagle Force have come up with a metal hop chamber for the Sopmod/SOCOM. I've not seen the Lonex one so I don't know if Eagle Force is a copy of Lonex or it's own version :- https://eagleonlineshop.com/eagleshop/shop/ShopProductDetail.aspx?id=GD-01-07

    TK, when you hold your PTW, you'll probably love the hair trigger response. Same with its quick response, and it's solid feel. There is no doubt about that with PTWs. In fact if only you had a chance to try the Tokyo Move custom where they put a TM Recoil Engine equivalent into the PTW, feel/response-wise it is the ultimate Airsoft M4!! I definitely have no doubt about it. However, custom modded or not, it's the longevity and durability of the PTW, at least to my mind, is in question. As in the team I run in Tokyo, there are a few PTW owners. And most (if not all) have had repeated breakages after a couple of months->year's use. They can be made reliable but usually that's more time and $$ spent into something that's already expensive. This is just to give you a clearer perspective of where I'm coming from about PTW's. Your friend with the solid still PTW, that's rare. Very lucky of him. Anyhow, I think you will enjoy your PTW, no doubt about that. I do hope the one you get is durable though over time. P.S. About the recoil custom into the PTW by Tokyo Move, you won't see it listed in their web page. But if you call or walk into their shop, they'll tell you about it. It's -really- expensive though. They won't mod your current PTW but if you buy a PTW off them and have it modded from a new purchase they'll keep the warranty, etc. It'll set you back something like USD$3000 without the mags.

    Forgive me for commenting but I've had a few drinks tonight....however....once AWS releases their Stealth/Raptor equiv for the next gen, what are the benefits do the PTW have over the SOCOM/Sopmod? I must say, aside from the 1:1 specs to milspec M4, the PTW really doesn't have much of an edge over the Stealth-ed/Raptor-ed SOCOM/Sopmod.

    So like the 2nd pix. This is actually the original Sopmod. As you can see my cavity here was created for my SW-AB-Long, but yes you could make it longer (but deeper??) for the Lipos :- http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/158786-initial-impressions-of-the-tm-sopmod-m4-aeg/page__view__findpost__p__2298963 I can go checkout the Bumblebee ones out for you again but if I'm not mistaken the cavity there is already narrower/deeper than the stock TM cavity (esp the 16.0" version but that may be too long for you).

    Hmmm...actually the RIS II is a lot narrower than the AR15 lite. So I don't think even the nunchuck Lipo will fit in there. You may have to go external PEQ. One possibility is to go for?an outer barrel with cavity (image taken from http://honeybee.militaryblog.jp/e250600.html) :- Jeepers, I just looked at the rest of the Bumblebee/Honeybee site and there's tonnes of other ideas on customising your M4.
