Thanks.
desert tigerstripe. hands down. Any time you use camo you need some break up though. not just one color. so desert ts with green gear etc.

Nirvana is achieved by not caring and just focusing on having a good time.

Alright guys, so my Echo 1 AK-47 will no longer fire. I'm thinking the problem is the motor. With a fully charged, working battery that is plugged in correctly with no breaks in the wire, the gun will not fire, there are no feeding issues with my magazine either. When I pull the trigger, the gears don't even attempt to turn. No noise at all. Any suggestions?

Check contacts, if the battery and wire ae good - and you did this by testing, then the contact points on the motor and in the trigger would be next.

Motor?
Prolly easiest way to test this would be remove the motor connect it to the wires, plug int he batter and pull the trigger. If it spins, then its likely a gear issue. - also this could confirm its not a wiring issue

You can check for shorts in the circuit. Something that will hint that a short's what's wrong is that your battery is being depleted quickly, even though your motor doesn't seem to be moving.

Even if that's not what seems to be happening, it's still good to check. You can use the same method of checking for shorts to make sure that your wires and contacts are working properly.

All you need is a multimeter. You could even improvise a device to check for shorts with a battery, wires, and an LED (and a resistor, depending on what kind of battery you use.)

@Texx, how would I go about checking the contact points on the motor and trigger? Would this involve disassembling my AK?

Pigi, it's virtually impossible to fix an Airsoft gun without dissasembling it, unless the problem is external. I'm hoping you knew that...? :-P

Yes, I knew that, but I was wondering if I could check that problem by simply removing the plate at the bottom of the grip. New question: How do you disassemble an AK-47? If you have the Echo 1 USA AK-47 RIS (Not the full metal one), and could teach me how, without videos, I can't watch videos because of my internet, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hmmm... I'm not an AK user, I'm an M4 user. I would probably take out the mag, remove the stock, then take out the pistol grip, motor, and then if there are any take down pins, take those out.

I might be able to tell you, but not at the moment...

To check the motor contacts, all you have to do is remove the screw on the bottom of the grip. The entire pistol grip should then come right off, exposing the motor.

Either a short circuit, or an open one.

A short circuit is when wires or contacts or soldered joints touch where they shouldn't. The electricity is lazy, and goes through the short circuit instead of the motor.

An open circuit just means that something's not connected that should be. Like a wire that's broken off the motor leads.

If both connections on the motor appear to be solid and not touching each other, you'll have to look at the rest of the wiring.

This may be the most random question ever, but is it safe to laser engrave a live round? I have a 50car bmg round I want to laser engrave for my bosses birthday, but I don't know if I should take out the powder load first.

Thanks

If its just for decoration it's probably best to take it out anyway just for safety

You might want to get rid of the primer too. If that goes off it could ruin somebody's day although not as much as if you left the powder in.

Help me, Airsoft Ohio. You're my only hope.

I just picked up some Peltor Comtac IIs on eBay and I'd like to know what PTT I should get for them. I have a Puxing PX888K radio and I don't want to get stuck with a piece of trash for a PTT. I've had two Element PTTs fail miserably on me before so that is not an option unless they've drastically improved or can somehow be easily fixed. I'm ready for the spoon.

If they are Peltor (IE real) comtacs, then the element PTTs wont work, they're wired different.

So you'll want a genuine Peltor compatible PTT for I believe the "Kenwood" style 2-pin connector for your Puxing.

Owning the same radio, you are looking for a Kenwood/Midland 2-pin PTT. If Peltor makes one, that is what I would get.

Stupid Question: Is it possible for a post office to give money back to a customer whose shipment was lost during a transaction?

On my international stuff, they usually include shipping cost in the insurance, no clue on domestic.

As a buyer, you should get everything you sent back. If you went through Paypal, file a claim

I traded some stuff, and now the person claims the PO could give them money.

And now he isn't responding...

I beleive it is. But you might get a better answer from the PO rather than here.
You can also www. usps.gov and see if there is any information there

Here's a question I couldn't find an answer to using the search button:

I have been shopping about for grenades that actually propel BBs, but I'm looking for something that isn't going to break the bank (since I'll probably lose one or two or several) but is still somewhat effective. I have heard of people putting BBs in Thunder-B sound grenades to achieve a "frag grenade" effect. Is this either one of safe or effective?
