Can't answer your first question ad I am not a support guy.
As for your second question, yes, almost all maruia shoot sub 300 by law in Japan. Does this affect range issue's? In a normal gun, yes it could, in a marui? No. The hop ups in these guns are so phenomenal that it will equal if not out range other guns with the same or higher fps.

Many people believe that velocity and range are linked. Yes, a 400 fps gun is going to shoot farther than a 50 fps gun. But when it really comes down to it, you need a good hop up/ bucking, which maruis have.

No you do not need to upgrade these (aside from maybe external thing). Most people believe an untouched marui is a mr better marui

To answer your support question, A&K makes some pretty cheap Support guns. Most of their guns don't need upgraded and run great out of the box. The only time I would suggest upgrading is when they either shoot over 400fps or something breaks.

Hey DrGarthon,

FPS does not necessarily translate to "getting good range." My marui shoots 250fps and outranges about 90% of all the other guns on the field. The quality of your hopup unit and inner barrel are more effective and safe methods of increasing your range. In terms of reliability and accuracy out of the box, you can't go wrong with a marui.

If you're looking for a cheap-out-of-the-box saw, you really get what you pay for. A&K would suit your needs - but my word of caution would be that their hop unit are both terrible and proprietary so you wouldn't be able to but a better hopup unit for when the original inevitably breaks.

I'm trying to cut down on the fire delay for my G&P M4 and I know a MOSFET is a good way to do this, but I don't know of any other methods. What else is out there? If I decide on getting a mosfet will there be anything else I should get in conjunction with it?

By "fire delay" do you mean trigger response?

If so, you can lower your fps by putting a lighter spring in. It will let your stuff cycle faster.

You can put high speed gears in it.

You can use a higher voltage battery (be careful you dont rip up your internals).

Im sure there are other options out there, but those are the ways that I know. And as for mosfets, I have actually heard that some can slow the trigger response? I dont really know how, but thats what I have heard.

And if none of this is what you are talking about the I hope someone else can answer your question!

High-speed motor + high-speed gears. I had a Lonex high torque and SHS 13:1 gears installed in my gun and now with a 7.4v LiPo my trigger response is PTW-like, without any sort of MOSFET. Just my $0.02

Using a high-speed gear ratio will do the most for improving trigger response. While some fets do help decrease response time by overcoming that mechanical-related curve, they can be finiky and difficult to trouble shoot in the field. I have been running a 13:1 (short-stroked) gearset for about 6 months now and get pretty awesome trigger response out of it. You can hear mine compared to a PTW used by ReverseFlank sitting in front of my camera in this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX_kwHbenn0&feature=plcp

I'm using an old Systema Magnum motor because...well just because. Not the best motor. You don't have to use an 11.1V lipo such as myself, tailoring back to a 7.4V will decrease the ROF while still providing very nice trigger response. I should note, I'm using a wiring harness that is around three years old, and never burned. No fet required.

Hey guys, I'm getting into airsoft after 1 experience with it at Conquest years ago. My question is about the average range of engagements. I purchased a KWA m4 2gx and have yet to use it aside from shooting at a farm. WHat range should I set it up to be accurate at, I'm more interested in milsim and big game like blind fury, also what can I upgrade in order to get more range out of the gun if needed. I know I need to use the gun and see what my preferences are but I would also assume there is some sort of 'standard'. Thanks for any feedback

The easiest and most obvious upgrade would be to get a tight-bore barrel. Ups your range/accuracy.

Ok, how about the average range of engagements? I need to set my hopup, but I dont want BB's flying 3 feet in the air, to get range that I really dont need

You need a lipo balance smart charger. There are 2 plugs on a lipo battery. The normal timiya and the little white one.

You DO NOT use the timiya to charge it as that is for output. Be sure you get a.lipo balance smart charger. Some of the not smart chargers also balance and some of the smart chargers don't balance.

Best bet is to spend whatever money it costs to get the combo of the two.

The entire goal of the hop-up is to keep pellets level as long as possible. Adjust your hop-up so that you see a miniscule rise out of the barrel- literally maybe a n inch or two. At that point you'll have the most range out of your rifle. More than that and you'll waste range on spin, and less than that and your pellets won't have enough backspin.

One last question guys. What is an average game for a medic? Do they normally just hide behind everyone until somebody gets shot or are they pretty active on the front lines just help people once they have been hit? Do they carry a weapon like everyone else?

This may or may not have been asked before, but I just got into the world of gas guns, and I'm really interested in getting a GBBR. However, money being a big issue for a 14 year old, how much (ballpark) would getting a GBBR load out cost? I mean like, gun, magazines, any other upgrades to make the range/accuracy better, etc. Also, which GBBR brand would you say is the better of them, but ALSO makes a non-common gun. I'm interested in the WE PDW, but I've seen a lot of people have problems with WE stuff, so I'm a little leery on that one. Not necessarily looking for suggestions, just a point in the right direction.

Thanks for the help

I've heard the King Arms M4 GBBR is a decent gas rifle. Can't really give you any suggestions on the rifel but most GBBR are in the ballpark of $250-$350. Plus mags are another $45-$55 a piece. They're standard capacity mags so you are looking at carrying around 10 mags for just 300-400 rounds. Not to mention the weight of each mag is about 10 times heavier than mag brands and 5 times heavier than metal mags. Also, you want to look into buying gas, carrying gas, refilling both bbs and gas on the field.

Didn't really answer your question about performance and such but this is just giving you some information you should know if you are going to run it as a primary.

Good luck on your decision.

I play medic quite a bit. Medics don't have to hide and not shoot (unless your team wants to keep you alive). Medics usually have to be the most strategic player on the field.

When I play medic, I usually use a smaller gun or a DMR style gun that way I can stay in the back, push forward and revive players as it happens, and still fire at the enemy.

So to answer your questions:
Medics play like every other player
No they don't normally hide behind everyone unless thats how you like to play
Yes, they carry a weapon.

Thanks Vinyvin, not sure whether I'm going to get one or not, it just seems like a more reliable option than a lot of AEGs.

GBBR's are not the easiest to use or maintain if you do not typically work on gas systems.

However IMO the KWA Lm4 is the most maintenance free and skirmish ready GBBR on the market. I believe everyone universally agrees that the LM4 has the best gas consumption and capacity with their mags. The magazine's max capacity is 1.3oz, which is about 1/6th of a green gas can or 1/12 of a propane tank(fully filled). Depending on the weather you can get between 3-8 full reloads out of this amount of gas. The gun with one magazine costs about $380, which is on par with most base model, quality, GBBR's on the market. The main difference is the only skirmish ready GBBR right out of the box. WE, G&P WOC and King Arms are all very good platforms for upgrading. However it takes some work to maintain them and keep them performing well.

For a KWA Lm4 and enough mags to use in game, I'd estimate you would spend about $800. As soon as you want to get into external upgrades you will be well into the $1000 dollar range.

Good luck,

sticks

I think G&G makes a GBB version of their combat machine for around $170.

Garthon,

I use Midland's. They have a line of products that caters to most budgets (as long as you've got $50, MSRP). I'd stick to that level and that company.

It is most likely a bad/dead battery. Have you tested it in another gun? How old is the battery? These things are all important. I assume you are charging it on a "smart" charger and not a simple wall charger, but if you are using a wall charger, you could have left it plugged in for too long and ruined it. Test it in another gun, and if it has this same problem you can determine that the battery is dead.
