    That Go Where I Point..

    Now if only RA-Tech will make a steel version of that selector armature. This one is not log for this world...

    Looks like this is the weekend of breakage. Plinking this weekend my niece broke part of the hammer off and something else...that I have yet to figure out what was. The weapon still shoots fine, but wear is showing up on the selector in the same place as Reppyboyo. While it hasn't broken there is a hairline crack towards the barrel right up against the selector cradle. That tells me that this is a really common problem. She is on magazine 59 apparently. I asked her to leave it be until I can find a selector part to replace this one if it falls out. I don't think she is going to listen though since she is sick as a dog and bored. lol Does RA Tech sell this part yet?

    No not yet. My niece will not consent to my desire to take apart these magazines until she can get some new ones since these work...more or less and she fears I will break them. lol

    You know this might actually be the issue. The mags can load more than 30, that is for sure. I am no expert on this, but it could be. Sadly loading less BBs didn't fix it so these mags might be just screwed. I can also report that the Ultimak rail fits without much fuss. I had to file it just a little on the bottom and shim it with a manila envelope clasp painted black to stop some side-to-side wobble. The optic mounts up to it nicely and she could care less about the rear sight now since the optic is way higher. The gun also has one more, not as hard, session of playing under its' belt. Holding up mystifyingly well too! Only the paint is really showing the wear-and-tear bad now. Even the gun case seems to scuff it.

    My niece just got this and she has run it really hard the last few days. She emptied exactly 42 magazines (4 mags x 10 reloads each and 2 more plinking) worth of BBs so far. She had a blast with it playing in the rain with her male cousins and it was a big hit with them. They are notorious high price AS snobs, but this gun made them take notice. Pretty solid overall, but as adadqgg has stated, the parts that are potmetal or some of the scariest on the gun and concern me. Right now the biggest issues are that the gun still likes to fire a lot when empty (It did well for a while, but now none of the mags ever engage the stop function) and that occasionally it will gas out (meaning release all the remaining gas...even if there is a LOT of gas left) if the magazine is rocked/bumped too hard. The magazines having plastic lug catches are also not looking great. Just 2 times playing and some pliking any the front of the magazines are pretty eaten up. WHY, OH WHY, ARE THESE PLASTIC?!? I mean seriously...this is a high wear point on real steel AKs...what makes airsoft makers think that it would be otherwise for a plastic mag? The mags have a pretty noticeable wobble. So a lot of issues with the magazines. On top of that the rear sight will not hold its' true. I mean a bump seems to unset it. I put a dot of hot glue on there for now and will sort a better solution soon for her. She is pretty bummed by that since there is not easy way to take another optic and drop it on there for aiming. The other thing that is bothering me is that her bolt is losing paint super rapidly on the cocking lever/handle and all over the place. It is wearing really oddly on the inside too...like it is dragging against the dust cover or something. She likes it, but it needs some work. I fitted a black Hogue grip on there with no fuss, so RS parts work with it. She has ordered an Ultimak rail for it so we will see how that works out.

    ^That one They are designed to allow you to slip them into normal M4 pouches as opposed to doubles.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Yup...it looks like the SCAR mags fix a lot of the issues folks are having. My brother has ONLY SCAR mags and his gun cycles fantastic. Did a test and it won't lock back and has a lower FPS with either the Normal WE black mags or the 5KU mags. This is just too weird. So basically the 1/2 millimeter or so of rubber on the SCAR mags helps it cycle better, but what on the SCAR mag is helping them lock back better?

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    If it locks up, the O-Ring degrading will be the least of his issues...

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Torque, is it really cold to the touch? It might actually be the lubricant freezing. My mate had this issue. He likes using copious amounts of lube on his guns. His PDW was having similar cycling issues around the 5th magazine. We later learned that the lubricant was freezing. Using less lube worked for him. You might want to try using gearbox grease as opposed to spray lubricant. We found that it was much less susceptible to freezing and locking up than the spray lube.

    There has been nothing but rain for a month here. It has not been "Oh it'll be fine. LETS GO PLAY IN IT!" Rain...it has been "OH *beep* THE ROOF IS COMING OFF!!!" rain. I didn't blog about it, but I broke my rib diving onto the ground to avoid some fire in a game back in OCT. I been laid up for over a month so when I got well the only thing on my mind was getting out there and friggin playin. Well NOW there is nothing but rain. RAIN RAIN RAIN RAIN RAIN! Hard rain. We had a little break in the rain last Saturday, but we didn't even have time to get geared up before the wind and rain started going crazy again. Driving and doing much of anything on the streets here has become an interesting exercise in caution. Anyhow things are compounded by the fact that I have new guns and have only plinked with them. I had nothing to do while my rib healed up, but design and make airsoft goodies. I made a vertical grip, made two MP5SAS SMGs, designed a new sling rig and shopped about for MOLLE goodies. My mind is so full of Oorah right now that I wanna BURST! God willing, this Sunday, I will be out there playing my brains out...and this time...I won't get an MP5 mag shoved into my bottom and second bottom most ribs. Aye? Aye.

    In the beginning...

    Hi and welcome. If for whatever daft reason you are reading this (I assume terminal boredom set in.) you decide to continue please remember that I am quite insane and this is the place where I plan to vent my various frustrations, observations and thoughts. These are my opinions and not those of the administrators of this fine Airsoft forum...not that they are any less insane. Where to begin... I guess the beginning. Many years ago at the "Riggs Resort" in Okinawa I kept hearing Corpsman talking about a sport where they took large gas tanks and replica guns and shot little yellow pellets at each other. Back then I was much more interested in the real steel guns that my Uncle Sam was letting me shoot than paintball (which is what I assumed this was...) games. I thought it was a game for little kids. Little did I know this strange sport would become my passion. Fast forward MANY MANY years (God...I am so old.) to the early part of this millennium. I am now a church youth minister and airsoft is all the rage with the young boys I have the pleasure of teaching every Sunday. All they talk about is "Springer Colt!" this and "Bio BB!" that. They beg me and beg me to play since they know I am a really great shot with real steel guns. I grudgingly agree and I like it. Fast forwards about four years and I am now totally addicted. Today I have a modest arsenal with all of the guns being custom made "One off" originals by yours truly. (I seriously need to post up some pictures. For real...) I need to go to airsofters anon. Seriously, I dream airsoft. One day I would like to have a business where I make custom guns for international customers. I love the look my guns get. They are crazy and they are my babies. Originally I got into airsoft as a way to save money. Real steel eats a lot of cash. The only problem is that I spend more now... cest la... I better cut this short before I get really rambling. Thanks for reading about my madness. I hope to use this blog as a tool to present the community with some useful information as well as mark down my random thoughts. As the Brits say...CHEERS!
