Tokyo Marui AA12

Recommended Posts

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 probably get on that with some Loctite.

I might be late to the game as ever but I have just seen these hicaps and I've not seen them before... and maybe other people haven't so here we go

Hi guys - was skirmishing in heavy rain this weekend and it seemed to make the mosfet cut out - was flashing red on a 1 second timer. Anything i can do apart from cover it in electrical tape?

Also skirmish before the pin that holds the rear sling mount vanished - one to look out for!

Cheers.

I've rewired a few for customers with better mosfets. Send me an email at shop@dlcustoms.eu

Cheers man - trying to keep the stock TM purity but when something does go properly wrong I will be in touch as i have a few ideas.

BTW: is there a reason the inner barrels are so short? A cylinder thing?

 

Cheers!

Partly down to the volume, but also because I suspect TM didn't want to fall afoul of the strict Japanese 0.98J limit.

That being said, I did up a AA-12 for a friend down south recently - M190 spring, rewired it with a proper 3034 based mosfet and flat hopped it with modified hop arms to get rid of the 45 degree spread. Does 0.9J and flings 0.28g bbs out to 50m+ easily with a man-sized grouping. Apparently it's very OP now!

That does sound very sweet! Very sweet indeed!!! And re: op i have had a marshall complain about it already i said man its 260 fps - how much lower would you like me to go? He didn't answer so i went on my merry way. I guess what im trying to say is that extra power / range is good but i dont wanna upset people if i can avoid it.

Where did you get the modified hop arms?
Or did you make them yourself? :) my brother is searching for those

I make them myself - I'm trying to narrow down the measurements so I can 3D print them for sale.

Aah nice can you give me a heads up if you do sell them. Much appreciated.

Me again - aa12 died whilst firing on semi auto. It clicks when trigger is pulled- when held there is more of a clunk and the mosfet light starts to flash. Tried on freshly charged batts -no luck! Any ideas? Cheers

I'm not sure on the gearbox in this, but that sounds like the classic "V2 lockup". Have you opened it up yet?

Hi,

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I'm not technically minded so I sent it off to eagle6 airsoft who reported back:

A screw had come loose (cf Malcolm, above) and jammed the piston, which also damaged it but didn't completely break it. I since purchased another aa12 so this one is gonna have an m90 put in - going to see how much i can get out of it till the piston needs replacing - will update as and when.

Cheers and of course a big thanks to Richard at Eagle6

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.
