I remember once being given an AEG that the user had 'upgraded but after he put it back together it wouldn't work'.

 

The piston had been installed upside down.

My favourite is the 'tech' who looked really confused as to why her leg wasn't doing any more than dribbling bbs out of the barrel until she walked back and saw the inner barrel sat on the bench and then sort of skuled away looking gormless.

That's amazing. 

I have, occasionally, forgotten parts as I reassemble a gun(Or put things in the wrong order), but I always notice before I walk away from the table, take it apart and put it all back again.

I did once put an AEG back together after replacing a motor armature which had burnt out. Test fired it and nothing. Not a sound, no movement, nothing.

 

Spent about 10 minutes checking over the mosfet, connectors and wiring before I saw the new armature of the motor sat on my work desk. Derp.

When I tech my gas guns I tend to lose a spring.

 

First spring was the we bolt catch spring, second was the g17 spring for the knocker lock.

 

Ill even leave a disassembled gun on my "bench" for a month and not lose anything.

 

Except for a spring that's never retained.

This is why I don't work on others guns. I can live with a hack job if it functions and doesn't ruin the aesthetics of the gun. But my 'bubba the gunsmith' ways probably don't fly with others. I have learned a lot just by screwing up, and paying for my mistakes.

 

I won't even admit I'm a tech, just a guy with a screwdriver.

So someone at Airsoft Forums wrote a "how to fix leaky mags" guide:

 

 

1. Take the leaky magazine, and ensure it's empty of propellant.

 

2. Depress the top fill valve and spray WD-40 inside the rubber seal that feeds to tank inside. Give a generous amount, you want to be able to liberally coat the inside walls of the tank.

 

3. Shake the magazine vigoriously, and then set it in various positions (typically baseplate down) as gravity will help feed lubricant to the portions of the baseplate that are dry.

 

4. Let the magazine sit for 5-10 minutes, and then give it a SMALL pressure charge (giving it too much could prematurely blow out swelling seals).
