This, kids, is what happens to polycarb pistons and hot springs. Yes the metal rack is BENT. Siegetek gears walked away unscathed.

* Stormtech polycarb piston
* M160 spring
Psh, just throw a new piston head on there, good as new!

Was the rack epoxied to the piston? I find that the new Chinese pistons have fairly soft steel racks too.

This nice surprise swung by recently...



This is what happens when you don't ensure that your bushings/bearings are flush against the mechbox.

I hate buying used guns from kids now. Im talking newbies that are around the 18 age and have had their first attempt to upgrade a gun. Why oh why do people feel the need to throw a whole tube of lube into the guts of their guns? And why do they think sanding a barrel can be done with needle files? Havent they heard of sandpaper and paint stripper. Gahhh its annoying, but all part of the fun of working on guns.

You can't pull a Pawnstars on them and just totally devalue the gun because of an improper upgrade job and stuff that needs fixing? ("Well that's not original, that devalues the worth of this", or "That's broken that devalues the worth of this", etc.)

But I guess then you have to deal with fixing stuff and spending hours and hours on that.

the problem with most used guns right now is that they are overvalued for what you're getting. It's a buyer's market due to the dropped prices last year, anyone selling used for even half of what they paid prior to the price drops are still having hard times selling. Even a bone stock gun in a package deal, never mind upgraded or had a problem, tried to fix it, deal.

why buy someone else's problem when you can buy new for a little bit more? Would you buy a 3 year old car at 15k or a brand new car at 17k?

Giant +1 BTW Has anyone attempted a troubleshooting flow chart? I can picture it
Guns makes no noise when trigger pulled -check fuse -try known charged good battery -check motor connectors - with battery connected and trigger pulled does current arrive at motor connectors etc

I had a similar experiance, but not quite as bad, I had made a trade for a gun, in working condition but I wanted to try and put a new body on the gun.

I found that the base plate for the motor grip was glued on, making that pistol grip useless when I took it off.

And... I found out that the gun had no nubbin inside the hop up unit...

This gem came across my bench today.
I can't even tell what colour the piston was originally.




And the blue tape. Why?
