Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

Recommended Posts

Just read on one of the recoil facebook pages that the Next Gen BTC should be on sale within the next 48 hours or so.

More like the next 48 months........ :rolleyes:

I was trying to convince myself that now the product is out there, there must surely be a rolling production line setup... right..???  But in the end I decided not to risk it, I got my first ever MOSFET installed a couple of months ago and to be honest I wish I hadn't because now I'm spoiled.

 

YOLO

I wanted one, for months, but the budget says no. So it's probably as well they've gone and taken the temptation with them.

 

Weirdly, having spent a fortune on getting the gun "just so", I'm now kind of bored and fancy doing something else. I'm going to regret it if I sell it aren't I?

Not had a chance to show off my new toy yet. Took a lil while getting funds/parts together but here's my gun as it currently stands :)

 

Externals:

 

- CQBR Base

- Madbull NSR 9" rail

- Ares M16 grip (hogue style grip)

- Hayley/Inforce WML Light

- MBUS replica sights

- Marui Sling adaptor

 

Still need an optic, thinking T-1

 

Internals:

 

- Internally all stock but have a BTC specter on the way!

 

What i'm really trying to decide is do I upgrade the internals along with the specter or leave it stock and if so what components to use. Also I have no idea how i'm gonna have the gun wired when the specter is fitted, what are you guys gonna do? I'm currently using a triggertalk lipo adator.

If you're going with the fet, get rid of all that QD cubbins (fuse, bars, contact points on the stock tube) and just solder two lengths of wire onto the wires on the stock and be done with it.

Cool so I don't need to solder a connector to the contact bars? That was my fear coz i think that looks ugly

Remember this is a personal choice, users don't have to remove all this, in fact the whole point of me pushing for a BTC fet 4 years ago was that it would make this a more viable option.  I have installed a fet with 8.4v bats and got very usable ROF, so on recelled sopmod pack, or 7.4v with lipo converter its going to be more than fine.

Can I ask Richard, In your personal opinion what is the most viable option??

Will have you tight bored the barrel that would give you a lift in FPS

 

Considering it Paul but the question is what barrel, I'm happy to pay that bit more if it def gives me that performance gain and then what bucking/nub to pair it with. Do i then leave the rest of the gun stock? decisions decisions.

Very true there's almost too much choice, almost lol

 

Coz the othe route is to go with a widebore and just bang an m120 spring or something in there. So confusing to know what REALLY works or not. You run TK twist barrels don't you? or is that just Sam?

Personally, if you're opening the box up to install the Spectre, then I'd drop some hornbill gears in there (or Prometheus, if you're feeling rich) to pre-empt the stock ones breaking and possibly an E6 M100 spring or similar. Nothing else *needs* doing. Original barrel/hop are good as is.

Yeah this is my thinking. I worry though. If I change the gears and spring, is everything else still compatible? i.e won't I then need new bushings, cylinders/pistons and so on as a result of the extra strain from the new spring and higher torque gears
