This was the first time the GB was opened, and all I could see was grease. That thing was coated, and I mean coated, in grease. I removed the clumps and it seems to be better.

The AR latch was a bit confusing as far as reassembling goes.

Tomorrow he selling me the battery and the externals, as well as a magazine.

I'm hoping to fix it, and then switch out the motor, put in a bucking or a TB, mount a laser and flashlight, and possibly some other small things. (suggestions?)
The motors in them seem like they're junk. Good idea. A proper shim job, proper greasing, newer motor, and possibly a lighter spring (I'm probably in the minority, but I don't really think you need 400 FPS or the 370 they were shooting out of the box when I was working at smith) and you'd be sitting pretty!

Let's hope it's just a fuse.
