Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

Recommended Posts

you should try a stronger battery then if that doesn't work it might be best you take it apart to make sure everything is ok and moving smooth like shiming / gears etc.

thats correct, the way AEG's for is you need to pull the trigger back and although the mechanism to discount its self.  If you try and fire and release it your self like a real gun it will potentially lock up.  If it gets really bad then try more voltage.

hello all

 

my front receiver pin worked itself loose in the last skirmish. I wrapped some teflon tape around it to make it a tight fit and it worked for the rest of the day, but it has now become loose again. I also noticed some play between upper and lower receivers. I can move the upper forwards and backwards and side to side a bit.

 

Will a new TM replacement pin eliminate the play between the receivers?

Can the recoil shock m4's take the standard tm m4 wiring kits? Can't seem to find any wiring kits available specifically for the next gen series.

Next gen contact switch sets only

First Factory/Laylax did a 10.5", exact same shape as the TM one just nicer materials.  Not seen any others around myself.

Pro Arms I belive.

Thanks. The pro arms seems to be the cheapest of them all, possiably an indicator of the quality?

Just for the record I have opened the gearbox and it turned out that a part from the ridge that keeps the O ring in place on the Prometheus piston head has snapped off, and that caused the stoppage like a lock-up. I have removed the snapped of part, it's quite tiny so it seems like it will run nicely like before of that. Also turned out that the rotation in the spring unscrewed the tiny screw that kept together the bearing part with the piston head, so guys make sure you pull tight that screw if you have it. I took the chance to upgrade to a Lonex A2 motor and an E6 120 spring. It turned to be a beast even with the 7.4v 30c Lipo.

Hey guys & girls.


I've recently upgraded my TM recoil to a finely tuned machine!


Full Siegetek, lonex and Prommy internals with a Lonex Franken Torque motor, E6 M95 spring, ER-Hop and one of the new BTC New V2 spectres. 


It's running beautifully but I have one slight concern...


I'm getting FPS of between 347-355 (UK site limits are 350 for the most part)


Now I played with it yesterday and the site gave me the benefit of the doubt, especially since I actually play with .28's but didn't wanna be THAT guy who tries to pretend he's running at 280-300 but only coz he's secretly firing .28s through the chrono.


In your experience is this going to be a problem for me or will sites allow this 5 fps tolerance? Is there anyway I can lower it that tiny amount without having to open it up and risk messing with how well it's currently working


Would love to hear your thoughts on the matter guys.


Cheers

If it's not still a TM piston, you should be able just to unscrew the stock tube remove the spring and either cut a coil off or swap it for a lower powered one. Remember 350fps is really max for must sites, so I would drop the power a little.

So does a mechanic not need to go into my gearbox to make this change? Just take the stock tube off and chuck an M90 in??

Yeah, spring changes are really easy on recoil guns once you've done the first one.

So I lost my outer barrel locking ring somehow.  The only place I could source one was the eagle6, but it seems out of stock since I've started looking.  Anyone else have a place to source it?

 

The only other options I've found is the pro-arms barrel that comes with it built into the barrel for $75 or potentially this one http://echigoya-guns.com/guns/index.php?route=product/product&path=61&product_id=353  ?  Or anyone have a TM/ARMY one they would want to part with?
