Nick, I chose the M4 platform for my use. A short setup is great for CQB, an M4 length is great for field play with some cqb. A M16 is a good DMR platform. So 3 types of play that use the same mags, optics, kit, etc.


There are shorter guns, but they don't have the abilities of the m4 I mentioned. So, to me, its the best platform.

Well, I have an M4 for field use, and I like that gun, I was thinking MP5 because of its small lightweight shape and weight. However, you can do more with the M4 than the MP5. I'm debating the platform I should buy for my new kit, that's why I asked, thanks for the imput.

You can definitely save a fair amount of money by using the M4 you already have. You can buy a shorter external barrel, etc. If your gun is shooting too hot and you, like I, fear letting the magic leprechauns inside your gearbox out, Madbull makes a product called the Crawler™ Barrel. It'll reduce the FPS of your rifle without a spring swap.

Good luck! Buy a red-dot.

eHobbyAsia usually has that stuff. You can even get an adapter for the TM style Mp7 to run a regular battery in an external storage space.

Running lipos in a ptw stock tube, has anyone done it? From what I am reading the board in the tube might get in the way and I would like to avoid modifying it.

I found these two batteries,

Nick: Yes and no. You'll need to remove the orange flash hider to access the threads, which are counter clockwise. You'll need to get that flash hider REALLY hot, though, so you'll probably want to boil it for a little while and grab a good wrench.

Without doing any moding you probably have to sitch to a smaller masfit. Hotspot has one called a code 8 and it like less then half of the size of the stock ones. I have it in mine with mil moe stock and I fit nice lipo.

Just regular Chinese glue. Take off your barrel, put it in a glass of hot water for 10 minutes, pull it out (with a rag cause the whole barrel will be hot) then twist off the flash hider.

Is the use of NVGs with goggles (Ex. Turbofans.) practical? If so what NVG systems?

Alright I'm sure something has been asked along these lines but I can't find it.

I'm new to airsoft only done 2 OP's (Moonlight III/IV). I have a G&P m4 that I was originally planning on upgrading to a DMR but I've been messing around with some other ideas. I would like to actually just leave it about where it is at (shooting just under 400) and use it when I want full auto and buy a new gun to make a DMR.

I know just about nothing when it comes to upgrading, and to be honest I really don't want to be a mechanic. I would like to know a gun that comes pretty good out of the box or a mechanic that would do the work on a gun for me. Preferably as little upkeep as possible.

I would love to have a SCAR platform, possibly a G36 but if it has to be an M4 I can settle just prefer something a little different. I hate the AK and the M14 unless it is an EBR build.

I would like it shooting 475-500 and to be as accurate as possible. I know it is a lot easier said then done and there is no such thing as exactly what I want but it would be helpful to have some advice then to find it all on my own.

Alright, another question. So I finally JUST got around to rewiring this A&K Masada and when I go to fire it, it sounds like a dead battery. So I charge it up and it starts firing. However, after just a few shots, it starts to get weaker, like the battery is dying again. I have put the battery in other guns and they all fire fine even when the Masada thinks its dead.

Is there a problem in my wiring or is it because its a 9.6v 1100 Mah (need more power?).

As somebody who uses NODs with turbofans I will tell you it is very doable. The catch is the you need to look at the eye relief on what set of NODs you plan to use. Cheaper gen 1 sets usually have a very close eye relief so when you are looking through them at night you field of view is very small. Gen 2 and 3 however usually have an eye relief of about 1.5" if memory serves me right which is perfect for most goggles setups including turbofans. There may be some gen1's with this kind of eye relief but I have not ran into any yet. If someone knows of a model that does please let me know lol. The reason I say this is because for a set of gen 2/3 NODs you are looking at the very least around 1K for the optic.

Vinvyin - You're certain that power isn't being lost anywhere? Are the wires insulated, is the soldering a cold joint? Make certain nothing is crossed or shorting, it sounds to me like the wires may be shorting.

Or, more likely, it's a motor issue. Did you swap the motor and test it then?

Thanks for the reply Orwell. I swapped different motors and tried so they aren't the problem. I have soldered two parts of a wire together and then used bullet connectors at another part. The wires are insulated and heat shrink has been put around the soldered part of the wires.

This is typically a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. Make sure that you reassembled the gearbox properly with correct shimming and that nothing inside the box is binding. Take it apart, make sure the gears spin freely and that the piston isn't catching on anything, etc etc...

Well this is in an unopened gearbox. I can take it apart and reshim it, but it has never been opened.

...then how did you re-wire it? Re-wiring implies you changed out the old wiring set for a new set. Regardless, chances are the box is binding for some mechanical reason.

If your battery or motor is getting warm, you might have a resistance issue.

Hey guys, I just had a couple questions. I'm looking at picking up some sort of support weapon, I really don't have a ton of money to put in upgrades right away. Is there a support platform that is considered good to go out of the box? Second, I'm thinking of maybe getting a Tokyo Marui, maybe an AK, I see that most of them shoot sub-300 FPS, does this cause range issues, or are they guns that you buy to upgrade immediately?
