I Beleive that it only works with certain nozzles as the 'ledge' which matches the ledge on the 'nozzle' is too short. cant remember where i saw that though, may have been on Airsoft Mechanics. Try removing your nozzle from your gearbox and push it inside the hop.

I bugga it, I think I am using a sysema nozzle if that comes with the Systema full tune up kit anyhow. Anyone know which nozzles work well, preferably ones with an O-ring

Hey guys,

 

I've recently bought a second hand AUG off a guy on the ASM forum. It's definitely seen better days but I've managed to fix most of the broken bits. My problem is I'm missing parts ST-37 and 38. Before I resort to trying to make my own, does anybody know where I can get these or anybody have them spare?

 

Cheers,

Luke

zerooneairsoft will get them, phone them up give them the part number and it should be with you, altho it took around 2 months for a the barrel clamp for my M14 to arrive.

Last time I emailed ZeroOne about sourcing something for me, I got no reply... <_<

 

I received a PM from someone looking for some help. In the interests of helping others who might have similar issues, as well as opening up the problem to others who might be able to help better than I can, I've reproduced the conversation below. The name of the user who contacted me has been removed by me to preserve their privacy.

 

Hedganian,

I'm having some trouble with a CA AUG A2 I'm working on, and well... I couldn't think of anyone better to ask. You see, this AUG is having trouble feeding BBs. It shoots around 1/10 of its shots. I thought at first that it was deformation of the feed nipple, but I filed down the inner surface very slightly (I used the edge of a flathead screwdriver). Now when I insert a mag into the lower receiver without the upper receiver installed, BBs spray all over the place. I figured it was a good test of the nipple. It also made a mess. Unfortunately, this means (in my mind) that the nipple isn't the cause of the misfeeding. Do you have any idea what could be the issue? Could it still be the nipple?

Also, I am the second owner, so I don't know what the first owner did to it. Let's say for argument's sake that he replaced some parts in the gearbox. Could replacing any part in the gearbox cause misfeeding?

One more thing: This is kind of an embarrassing question, but can the gearbox be removed without splitting the lower receiver shell? I'm having the damnedest time trying to get it out like the gearbox in the TM version. It looks like something is catching the shell on the top. Any tips?

 

Have you checked the AUG FAQ/Helpdesk thread? That's what it's there for.

 

If, after reading through the thread, you can't find any help, please post your issue in the thread where I and people who know more than me will be happy to have a look at it for you.

 

I've been reading the thread for a while now. I haven't found an answer yet, but I'm still going along. To be honest, I don't expect to find a solution to this question: How exactly does one remove the gearbox from a CA AUG? It seems to be catching on the body, and I expect there should be a way to remove it without splitting the body.

 

The CA gearbox comes out of the back of the AUG in exactly the same way that the TM does. And I believe the JG AUG also follows this pattern - they're all clones of each other anyway.

 

It can be fiddly to get the gearbox out, the top where there false bolt is attached to the gearbox can often get snagged on something inside the stock. You just have to bear with it and keep trying to work it into a place where it'll come free.

 

The feed nozzle could be the cause of your feed problems if it's not lining up with the hop-up unit correctly. Or the hop-up unit could be at fault. OR the air nozzle could be coming too far into the hop-up unit, preventing BBs from getting loaded correctly (this happened to my G36 once, and I had to replace the air nozzle with a shorter one). Or it could be some combination of the above. Or something else entirely.

 

Was the AUG having feed problems when you bought it? If so, I'd contact whoever you got it from and ask for an explanation. If not, then it's unlikely to be a result of whatever they did.

 

Lastly - while I'm happy to help anyone out with AUG related issues, it's better for everyone if these matters are brought up in the FAQ thread. Firstly, the issue may have already been dealt with, and secondly, other people can't see PMs, so I end up getting the same issues raised again and again. If someone else is having trouble, the answers you get from posting your question in the thread might well help them, and then they don't even need to ask for help. Also, other people who read the FAQ/Helpdesk thread, such as Docv400, AmateurStuntMan and Treadhead, to name but a few, all probably know more about and AEGs in general and the AUG in particular than I do. By PMing me instead of posting in the thread, you're excluding many extremely helpful and knowledgable people from helping you.

 

As I said, don't get me wrong, I'm happy to help. It doesn't hurt my ego that people think of me first when they want answers, and I don't mind helping people out. But everyone can benefit more if questions are asked in the FAQ/Helpdesk thread, rather than PMs.

 

[/soapbox]

 

Good luck

Hello.

I have been following the AUG threads here for a long time but I haven't posted anything yet. I have seen fantastic jobs and mods done by some aug-lovers, you really know this gun! <img src="http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

 

Well, I will post a problem and a question.

 

My "problem" is this. My AUG's accuracy is not the best, it never was. I have changed some things and it got better, but now I am having more or less the same problem again, BB's always turn to the right!... Sometimes more than others but they do.

It shall not be a gearbox problem, those are solved already, so I am thinking it might be due to one of two things:

1 - The feeding nozzle;

2 - The barrel is slightly turned to the right so the hole where the hop-up rubber gets out is not centered.

 

I think it might be the second one... Probably due to that U-shaped platic thing that is supposed to hold the barrel, i might say. I have a G&P metal chamber which you guys seem to dislike. I really am thinking of changing it to the Poly one, would you advise it in order to get more consistent fire? Is is better to have a more stable barrel?

 

The question is about a cilinder set. I will shorten my AUG so that the internal barrel will get less 5 or 6 centimeters than the original 50,9cm. Is it advisable to install a bore-up kit in order to have better accuracy? Or a kit like this (http://en.airsofthardware.de/shop/show/5737?item=13&page=1&search_cat=0&searchstring=aug) is better as the length of the barrel is not "so big"??

 

I hope I was clear with my doubts, any help is welcome, thanks. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

_________

My specs:

-TM AUG A2

-G&P Metal Hop-Up Chamber

-Guarder Hop Rubber with Element H-spacer

-Area1000 Cilinder and Piston Heads

-Area1000 Nozzle

-Tight Bore Systema

-Li-PO 7.4V 1900mAh

 

First - sorry for missing your post before - looks like someone else posted after you and your post was kinda overlooked....

 

Anyway, my first impression is that you've answered your own question. If you know that the barrel is not fitted correctly, how can you expect the AEG to work correctly? You should fix this problem first, and then see how things stand.

 

I recomend the all-metal Poly hop-up unit mainly because I change my barrels a lot and have had the plastic rings on the stock unit and the G&P "metal" unit (which only has a metal body, IIRC, not metal rings) crack, leading to problems. Previously, I never had issues with the Poly units, but lately some of my barrels have started to have issues, which I believe is due to the rubbers/buckings rather than the metal unit itself. All my barrels use these units, but only some have feed problems, so the hop units can't be the cause.

I will post on the helpdesk thread momentarily about this, but I would like to update you once more. I checked the alignment of all the parts, and it seems to feed perfectly if I put pressure on the mag up and towards the front of the gun. It's worth noting that the mags (all of them) have some play in the magwell. I was thinking that shimming might be a solution, but it seems like quite a lot of room to take up. I know not all of this is normal, so how much of it is?

 

Scratch that, I found out that it's the feed nozzle. I inserted a highcap with the hop chamber out and tried to inject BBs into the gun. I only got sprays of BBs when I played with pushing the mag further into the well. Undoubtedly, the issue is the feed nozzle not pushing the catch back.

 

Glad to hear that you've got it sorted. I'd recommend replacing the feed nozzle with a metal one, however the Iban version I use does not fit into the CA AUG. You'd have to check around to see if you can find a suitable version for the CA AUG.

Does anybody know how to go about splitting an AUG receiver in order to foam-line it. I have disassembled mine right to just the plastic shell, removed the four bolts holding the two halves together and it's glued really well. I'm frightened of cracking it if I'm not careful. Anybody done this before? Am I missing something?

And how can I solve this?? I tried tape around the barrel in order to keep it tighter to the outer barrel but it doesnt fit in.

I tried to find that Poly/PDC hop-unit but no shop has it, not even Chinese/HK shops... Does anyone know a place with stock of it? Or someone with one piece to sell. :)

 

And what about the cylinder set issue??

Is this aimed at me? Your post doesn't really make much sense.

You're right. Which would be because it's in the wrong thread. Oops. :flamed:

 

I think the answer to your AUG splitting issue is discussed earlier in the thread. The techniques described here with a view to splitting the foregrip can apply to the whole stock as well.

 

And how can I solve this?? I tried tape around the barrel in order to keep it tighter to the outer barrel but it doesnt fit in.

If your hop unit is not holding your inner barrel in place correctly, a new hop unit could solve the problem. If not, the barrel itself could be damaged, so a replacement inner barrel might be needed. Having not seen the gun, I can't say exactly how to solve the issues with it.

 

I tried to find that Poly/PDC hop-unit but no shop has it, not even Chinese/HK shops... Does anyone know a place with stock of it? Or someone with one piece to sell. :)

I think the last batch I bought were from Redwolf in HK. If not, try WGC.

 

And what about the cylinder set issue??

"The question is about a cilinder set. I will shorten my AUG so that the internal barrel will get less 5 or 6 centimeters than the original 50,9cm.

How would installing a bore-up kit affect accuracy? Accuracy is a factor of the inner barrel and hop-up unit. The cylinder is nothing to do with it. There should be no need to alter the cylinder or piston configuration is the barrel is shortened.

:D :D :D :D :D

Thank you very muuuuuch! I emailed them at DEN to ask about shipping costs, because the normal costs they have in their info are way to expensive... I also emailed Redwolf because I couldnt find the hop unit in the website.

 

At WGC I have sent an email some time ago and they said they will never have it again as it is a discontinued item.

 

And sorry Hedganian, I meant stability and range. A better air flow will help it right?

There's a brief description of how I do it on page 2 of the STANAG AUG link in my sig...

As long as your barrel's volume is equal to, or less than, your cylinder volume, then you won't have any problems. If you shorten the inner barrel, you *should* lose muzzle velocity due to the shorter acceleration time of each BB. Of course, the practise doesn't always follow through with the theory.... <_<

I have a Aug related technical question guys when using the following recomended hop unit

===========

My fps is terrible, I simply have no idea why? I am using the same hop rubber. I have read other reports that this product is simply ######.

 

 

I Beleive that it only works with certain nozzles as the 'ledge' which matches the ledge on the 'nozzle' is too short. cant remember where i saw that though, may have been on Airsoft Mechanics. Try removing your nozzle from your gearbox and push it inside the hop.

 

Have a look here...

Rather than clutter the picture thread, I thought I'd ask here. I did see a picture of an AUG fitted with an EGLM and just wondered if a) someone could link me the page it was on (ive trudged through the AUG pic thread but pictures don't seem to load well today) and B) How easy is it to fit it? Any help be much appreciated since I'm considering an AUG as my next purchase. Thanks.
