I picked up that box a couple months back, they work VERY well with my P* shooting 50+ RPS.

At this time of year you'll probably be running indoor games and with 2 hi-caps you should be good to go there as well. Hope to see ya in the field
Hate to burst a bubble but...
Yep, currently at 265$ at one of the great retailer we have here...
And I often see the Nylon Bodied at sub-200$ prices or very close to that; Currently in special a 160$ at a particular store too...

2 years ago, before prices starts to come down massively, I bought a full metal King Arms with Ras and all for about 320$ if my memory's good. Just the RAS is worth approx 100$, to put things in perspective. So yeah, I personally wouldn't consider 250$ for a Nylon M4A1 a good deal. Maybe not bad, but definitely not good

King Arms full metal M4 magazines usually retail for between $10-$15 a piece. They can be ordered online as well.

Screeching? Are you sure it's coming from your magazine? It could be your motor pinion gear is being stripped from not being properly adjusted.

the feed system for hicap mags is a spring loaded drum in the bottom of the mag, with no BBs it will spin and release all of its tension loudly, and it wont feed the 20 or so BBs that sit above the feed wheel

also, fire the gun without the mag, if it still makies the screeching its the motor, theres and adjustment screw on the bottom of the pistol grip, the screw you see might be the adjustor, or it could just be a plug covering the adjustor, it depends. on the gun

could be describing the noise of the winding spring when it unwinds itself cause you're low on BBs... a high cap will not feed every single round, that's the nature of the highcap, anywhere from 10-30 depending on type of gun. If the gun just makes that sound at the end of the magazine instead of every shot, then it's not motor height.

If it's screetching every shot, get it adjusted.

edit... what nooblord said.

The last thing a noob should be doing is any adjusting of the motor height, especially when they don't know what to listen for. Too tight you jam the gears (and most likely break a few teeth on the pinion) Too loose you slip the gears and I guarantee you break teeth off. The motor height should be set just right from the factory. Take the gun to the local store and let them listen. Best thing you can do is get a friend who knows how to disassemble the gun and V2 gearbox and learn how to do it yourself. You will need to get in it many times so you may as well learn. Youtube has some great vids on this too. Learn it!

As for the battery charger.....agreed get a smart charger. The slower you charge the battery the longer it's going to last you and the longer it will hold a charge. You can make the charger charge a 1500mah battery in about 20min but it will do major damage and not last. I recommending charging at a max rate (especially on new batts) of 1A. A 1500mah battery will take 1.5hrs at this rate.

I disagree, as long as you slowly and carefully adjust it , it should be fine, just tighten it until it starts making screeching noises, then back it off until its quiet, usually just a few turns
its not rocket science, and how better to learn how the guns work than through working on it yourself?

well this only matters if his motor is out of adjustment in the first place, sounds more likely that its just the mag unwinding

Adjusting the motor screw is the WRONG place to start. If there is any noise coming from the gearbox (extended whining noise) chances are the gears need to be shimmed. Start here FIRST and DO NOT touch the adjustment screw. Like I said befriend someone who knows how to take it apart and get them to show you the in's and out's. Motors are usually ALWAYS where they need to be right from the factory, so don't touch it.

This is true I got my full metal KA M4 for $229. Sure there was zero compression when I got it and it had the issue of firing full auto in semi, but $7 later and a few hours in the gearbox and I was in business!

Good to hear you figured out your issue! I would suggest investing in midcaps when you have the cash. They shoot all but the last 4 bb's or so and have no rattle! Also be sure to learn how to open up your mechbox. You will need to learn your maintenance! Have a good one!
