    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    i played another game today and, as my worse fears suspected, they died after 7-8 mags (mid cap 82) of firing after a full charge!! I wish i could order from richard but I'm not in the UK (I'm assuming you only ship in your country)... Has anyone tried to switch out the cells for better ones and found it to be a hard process?

    thanks guys, I feel less stupid LOL @ berserk: That sounds like a good idea. IS there any modifications I will have to do to make the pack work? Or is it as simple as dropping in each individual cells and just lining up the + and - ends correctly? I'm not sure how these sopmod batteries work. It seems like theres a connector at the head of the battery which contacts the part underneath the fuse inside the stock. For the custom pack cells, I may have seen/read this somewhere earlier in the 106 page thread but any recently memory of it has disappeared.

    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    funny story: This past weekend I had a blast with the sopmod, as expected. However, one point I was shooting at an enemy and the gun didn't shoot. Flipped it to auto and no response. Started freaking out that my gun broke but then I completely forgot about the bolt release because Im used to hearing a dry fire even though I run out of ammo The 1300 mah battery lasted fine during my play but I guess I was only there for a half day. This is a noob question but I just want to make sure: Does the SOPMOD standard battery lose charge over time? I thought nimh batteries keeps the charge? or does it lose charge more slowly than nicad? The reason I ask is that I've shot just about 750 total during that day. When i got home to plink around, the battery started to get weak and had trouble pulling semi, if not at all. So, next week, when I play a game that lasts the WHOLE day, I am worried about it dying. I thought 1300 mah will get at least ~1300 shots before it starts dying? btw, thanks for the help with my earlier questions!

    I think I've read this previously somewhere in this thread but I have a question about the lock up when you shoot semi too fast. I freed it by switching to auto and going back to semi. Just have to be careful with my twitchy finger on semi. Just curious though, Is there a reason why this happens? I found that it happens on my other AEGs too from time to time. Also, is there any damage Im doing inside the gearbox when it's locked up, i free it on auto, and switch back to semi? Is there a problem if I end up having to free it too many times? I dont want my expensive aeg to get ruined!! please calm a noob

    Thanks for the advice. RS m4? are you talking about the kwa EBB series that's coming out? Is there a way I can sling this? I really dont want to take apart the buffer tube to put an adapter (i.e. asap) and it didn't seem like the sopmod came with any sling adapters on the front or back. Maybe i can just tie something to the buffer tube and hook my sling there?

    I just got my TM sopmod. All I can say is: It's just a brilliant piece of engineering and most easily my favorite aeg of all times by just playing with it for an hour or two. I hope the battery doesnt die on me though. The gun shipped it out a week ago and when it arrived to me it still had juice for me to test it out. Guess it's not that bad as i thought? Thanks for the advice richard. I probably dont plan to disassembly anything so hopefully the buffer tube will stay for a long time. When i got my sopmod though, I noticed the rails were a bit wobbly (from side to side) along with the front triangle sight. I tightened the hex screw on top and that helped the RIS wobble but the triangle still goes from side to side. Any reason why? The barrel itself doesnt wobble though, feels like a rock. The stock is a bit wobbly too but that was expected and nothing surprising. Still, i LOVE THIS GUN. I would even be happy if i ended up paying it for the full price!! Maybe I should get another recoil marui AEG!! After waiting so anxiously for this sopmod, now I have to wait anxiously for the next game I will be attending lol I guess since Im the newest member of the club I'm the lowest rank?

    How about the buffer tube? does the screw for that need to be retightened from time to time (with locktite) or it's not necessary? I saw that mentioned earlier in the thread somewhere (I finally finished 104 pages!!). A side note: It's still nice to see the same group of people around from two years ago to still be chattering about the TM sopmod actively till this day.

    Is it safe to play around with the bolt/charging handle without it breaking? From the videos, it seems to makes a better "clack" sound than most other TM aeg m4s when pulled. My tm m4 has a plastic bolt cover and sounds cheesy when I pull the charging handle... it doesn't feel that durable either.

    Oh ok. that's fine as long as I know if I charge them the day before and not have them die on me during an event, I'll be happy.

    Should I bring a backup aeg? I'm just scared the battery might die on me (because I've been reading reports of the 1300 mah batteries dyingor not holding their charge as well) and it's making me a bit worried. Especially when I have to drive out a certain distance to an event, i dont want that to happen!! Is there suppose to be a best way to charge this thing?

    Hi guys, I've been lurking over this thread for the past 3 days. I'm about to receive a TM sopmod used from a person but it has been left stock. I read the first 35 pages (under 4 sittings, lol) and I haven't gotten to the more updated posts but I will over the next few days as I anxiously await my TM. The wait is excruciating and reading this thread will help some of that time pass by. Now, I plan to leave it stock. What I've gather is that the batteries have problem with cold weather. How are they lasting in normal - moderate high temps? (say, around 75-85 degree F) Do I have to worry about batteries dying prematurely during games? Personally, I just play half day games so 1300 MAH is good enough for me. I'm just worried about the batteries dying/malfunctioning on me over time and have to dish out over 50$ for another battery. And the reliability report: Have the people, who left it stock, been enjoying the same reliability as their TM AEG counterpart have experienced despite the added stress of the recoil system? I got some TMs in my collections well over 6 years old and I hope this sopmod can be here to stay with the pack. As of today, this gun is literally sold out almost everywhere (U.S. retailers at least) so I'm grateful I was able to obtain one. (The marui agent guy on ebay is selling the sopmod at a ridiculous price) Any answers are appreciated! this is my first EBB rifle!!! just 2-3 years late but oh well!!
