Bacon jam, where might one acquire this heavenly concoction? Bacon Jam and Peanut Butter Sandwiches.

I am going to buy all of Jay's inventory and future production capacity of bacon jam and repackage it as a distraction device. Throw a tiny jar of that in a room and everyone will fight to dive upon it. Imagine the chaos caused by a Tornado grenade optimized to shot blobs of that all over a room.

I do hope that Manchovie can chime in and tell his side. I'm curious how the two stack up against each-other.

Manchovie has briefed a few of us on his side of the story. There is no need for him to speak here. This guys asshattery has shown itself in his posts and more than one ASC'er has figured out the holes in his story.

His lack of fundamental communication skills alone is responsible for half the issues with the deal. Add to that threatening calls from an irate parent and you can start to see how Manchovie got boxed into a bad deal.

I can assure everyone he did his best to make all parties happy and got the short end of the stick on parts and labour. Even on his worst day, Manchovie could never fuck up a deal this badly.

It's this kind of BS that makes good gun docs rethink doing work for anyone. It hurts the community when it happens.

Thanks BT.

I always get a little pissed off when people start slamming gun docs. I've had a couple (Poncho is famous for this, although Manchovie did it once for me as well) who actually stop playing entirely to deal with some malfunctioning piece of kit, and hand off their working AEG to me so I can play while they fixed my shitty rifle.

So not only do they sacrifice their play time to fix my gun, they handed me a working gun so I didn't have to fix mine.

Unsung heroes of the sport, they are.

Bdot...I've read your whole post...and all the others...and all of this thread.

I've also heard Bartek's side of things a while ago.

I've known of him (when I started he was the mystical AEG fixer guy in the corner...) for years...and he's a top notch stand up guy.

You, on the other hand, sound like an miserable ass.

If you ever get back on ASC and read this...I'm sure that there's more than a few guys who've made note of you and who'll have nothing to do with you.

I had to deal with all kinds of issues like the above when working on people's guns, often seemed to be something new pops up (such as an airleak) that takes time to sort out. Custom wiring jobs were a nightmare, and it's true the MP5s take a long time to disassemble/reassemble, so literally a full assemble is required to simply test fire to see if the last attempt at a fix solved the problem. If not, back apart it goes.

I think the OP was expecting the work to be a quick and simple thing, sometimes it is, no more than a couple hours tops, but when you get finicky parts and troublesome guns, it becomes a nightmare for the person working on it, and updates on "This isn't working out with this part" are commonplace.

I'm so glad I got out of the airsoft technician business.

"Patience is a virtue"

When my gun broke down, I first TRIED to fix it myself. After a month of no success, I spent another 2 weeks putting it back together, then took it to a gun doc. The gun doc spent about a month or so before I could get it back. Cost: $50 + $18 for some parts and stuff.

Total elapsed time without working gun: 2 and a half months.

Geez, calm down, there are some really tricky problems sometimes, but all it takes is time.
In fact, the guy I went to told me "call back in 2 weeks", I did, there was some complication, so I called back again in another 2 weeks. Guess what, it was finished and fired right and everything. Tested it on site and left, no problems.

Reading through this whole thread, I think that you, Bdot should have been less impatient and smarter. As in, TEST IT ON SITE TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS. On the other hand, I don't understand why a reputed gun doc would give you back a broken gun.

Many many times a "fixed gun" works fine when tested by the gun doc before it is delivered and "breaks" shortly thereafter

it's happened to me countless times.. sometimes there is an underlying problem that remains diagnosed .. Sometimes new parts fail, sometimes.. it just happens.

it's not the fault of the Tech.. these are toy guns pushed to the limit of performance .. and often beyond.. sometimes they just fly apart..

The best strategy when dealing with Gun docs is to take them the gun.. Tell them when you need it done, ask if that is reasonable .. and then forget about it until you are called and told it is done. The go pay the bill in cash, round up to the nearest $10 ..

and if it breaks again shortly thereafter.. repeat the process.. sometimes the gun Doc will give you a break on the second fix.. but it should not be expected.
