    Sorry for necro, but this is some updated info. Made a video review talking about the updated internals of this gun. The gearbox 2.2. A follow up video already uploading about piston compatibility.

    Okay. Its actually quite weird how so many drool when they see that mp5, and ask how much would it cost. It's beautiful indeed.

    I'm glad to see that aswell. I was the second owner of that gun and paid over 300 euros for that gearset.. So you were the 3'rd? or 4'th? Anyway, my latest vid. Using my custom mp5a3 aeg.

    Cutting down spring is always a definate no-no, it will cause unbalanced strain on the spring which will eventually cause it to bend or break. There is a reason why spring ends are filed FLAT. Just use the springs designed for the gun, in this case eagle6 springs. And what comes to the dry firing, the piston practically always slams forward before the BB exits the barrel, its tested & true, so in theory the strain is a little higher on the gearbox when dry fired.

    Brickfactory of Virenoja 07.05.2011 Headcam clips. All are in REAL 720p, not like many "720p" videos that are actually 480p or less and just rendered to 720p even though they really arent PART1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fB5V28AzMY PART2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ89o5wEjNI PART3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKv6I32lKW8 PART4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNTC9idUYf8

    There you go.
  18. There are quite a many other experienced techs who agrees with me. Its not just me and my "tiny little world". Wait what I dont even...? Did you miss my point entirely? Thats exactly what I'm talking about. Only thinkin the japanese market and perfecting the system to work in THEIR limits, not thinking about other countries and their limits. I would understand it if they only released it in Japan. Thats why some manufacturers release different versions of their guns for different country markets. Now that car metaphore is just silly and doesnt work here. This discussion has gone too far already. You provoked me to answer in the way I did, if you cant face the facts and call me ignorant instead then ok, then this discussion is pointless and Im personally ending it now.
  19. It wouldnt be above its limits if TM would bother not designing them that way! Youre missing my point there.. Logic is to think logically based on scientific facts, instead of listening to just one or few persons experience and their point of view affected by their personal opinions of the subject. If I know the mechanical properties of the material, and see how its constructed its easy to create quite accurate predicion what kind of stress it can take. From the photos I can easily conclude that it's properties strenght wise are similar to a TM v2 and likely weaker. You cannot make me think otherwise unless you provide me clear scientific evidence which would prove me wrong, which you cant do. The pictures already proves it, I dont need to prove anything. If I had a test run of this gearbox, the test result wouldnt mean anything, because simply I would have to test several hundred of them in order to create a realistic view of its durability. Only way to test it for sure is to run a realistic computer simulation with other gearbox versions as well and then compare the results. Can you see my point? Case closed.
  20. Its called logic. I like to use it in my daily life. I know fairly well the mechanical characteristics of cast zinc, and when its clearly visible in the pictures that the new gearbox has much less material surrounding the cylinder in the front area, simple conclusion is that thus it is weaker. There is no way around that. If you disagree, its OK to me, nothing personal but its against the laws of physics and makes absolutely no sense. Fractured gearboxes are very common phenomenom in this region, because of colder weather and higher fps limits. Cold affects the yield strenght of cast zinc quite massively, and if a gearbox is designed for under 1J power and is ran at 400fps in cold weather, you probably understand why gearbox strenght is quite big deal for me. Thats why I critisize TM for not designing their aeg's to withstand higher power. edit. removed all pointless personal ######.
  21. Well I have seen 3 STOCK tokyo marui version 3 and few version 2's crack in the front with all stock parts and 8,4V battery. And that was within the first year of use. The Scar and Sopmod gearboxes are even weaker in the front, its clear from the pictures just look how thin that bar on top of the cylinder is. There is no magical reinforcements there, fact is a fact. I have to disagree with that.. The TM g36k gearbox design is very similar to a Ver3 gearbox in the front, thus much stroger. See it here. Im not meaning to be rude, but thats just how it is. It's not like its useless, in fact it will be just fine. Thats as long as proper shock buffer, sorbothane pad that is, is used in the cylinder head. Even a tm ver2 can take a m170 without issues with sorbothane if everything is working right.
  22. I foresee a lot of cracked in the front gearboxes.. If I some day get one of these a sorbo pad is a must.
