  1. They don't put long inner barrels in them because it would upset the balance of the gas system and raise the FPS.
  2. Retro Arms are doing pistons, and they work really well. Gears are apparently coming in the not too distant future. Loctite 222 will hold the screws while leaving them easy to undo. Straight shooting hop arms available here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3449141 They take about 10 minutes to print including machine warmup time, so you can wait while the local library or whoever prints them for you.
  3. The Evos are a bit of an ugly duckling OOTB, but that really improves it.
  4. I let every man and his dog abuse my 3. I just send them out with 2S LiPos and full drum mags, and they come back full of smiles. I'm kinda hoping one of them craps out so it motivates me to Polarstar it. I see on the AA12 FB group that breaking gearboxes is a thing, but the type of battery won't change that. I'm not sure if they're breaking them because they are putting bigger springs in (I don't think so). Apparently they do rattle all the screws loose (which I noticed immediately with the external screws and Loctited them all down snug). Given they are so easy to strip down, I should probab
  5. Thanks for the review. Looks like I'll stick with the TM versions...unless they happen to make a gold one
  6. You know, I'm not actually sure that we do. Currently it's a reasonably balanced tool that isn't so overbearing as to make it obnoxious. More FPS or RPS and it could easily be a pretty dickish gun. If I converted one of my AA12s to HPA, it would probably be 350fps and 20rps, which although reasonably modest is still 60 BBs per second, and nobody is going to enjoy playing with that except the psychopath behind the trigger. Having said that, if you have the money I have the technology
  7. I've never put one through the chrono; it's factory TM so CQB safe everywhere. I took one to bits, but didn't strip the hop. There is an additional SGR12 being released, the Thor's Hammer edition, and that has a slightly different hop. Instead of the two outer barrels being slightly angled out to give it some spread, all three hop straight up... bit more of a nasty assault rifle than a shotgun I'm not sure about the range... 40m? It's odd though... effective range on an AEG is normally less than maximum range, but with these you get three chances to hit, so effective range is much closer to
  8. I run my AA12s on Lipos, one since launch date, no trouble. I'm using some 950mah 2S 30-60C LiPos in the SGR... the battery space is pathetic, but that little Lipo managed a few thousand rounds last time it was out so it's not unworkable.
  9. They so should have used that grip on the G3SAS (yeah yeah i know, no battery space).
  10. Ohhh yeah, import permit for this and a breacher finally arrived
  11. Yeah, they're ok. Make sure you create an account, so you can see their full range and pricing.
  12. Agreed... and even if they did have a clue, that information would be lost in short order. Forums are definitely my preferred option for technical information, ideally ones that host their own uploaded images. Photobucket was probably the worst thing ever to happen to the web. Oh sure it let us upload far more images than we had been able to previously, but go look at a 5 year old thread; dead links to images long since purged. Facebook relies on content turnover to keep the eyes reading. Archiving and searching through old content on their platform it basically worthless.
  13. One of mine has an Element PEQ16 with the length extension, and inside that is a Turnigy 3S 25-50c 1800mAh brick. The other is a 2S 35-70C 300mAh which lives in the pistol grip, along with a Polarstar FCU (that one is my favourite ).
