-motor pins slightly loose
-8 shims on the buffer tube cap and has the dented cap instead of the hole
-body pins were a loose fit
-cylinder needed regreasing
-motor needed it's height adjusted (especially since it moved side to side)
-uses an FCC 2.5 motor which is a decent armature with a shitbox body
-hop mod was done, works, but very shoddy

Only good thing about this one was the gears meshed properly
however the cap for the planetary gears was too tight and crushed the sun gear bearing

Sooooo their track record for the mechanical still sucks
Their boards seem to be pretty good though
I had one come my way for a tune up as well similar issues.

I"ve been to homes of other (X)TW repairmen to trade spare parts and talk shop, I have seen piles of stripped FCC gears, two large coffee cans of dead motors. Didnt give me much confidence. Considering FCC guns make up the minority of the TW population seeing the overwhelming majority of dead FCC TW parts is a cause for concern.
Do you know what ruins airsoft?
