Kind of funny how I got into this... I work from home sometimes... My son had a clear soft laying around, so being bored I took it in the office and built a makeshift target. Fire - reload, fire - reload.... I thought there has to be a better way... So to google I went. I found he place where I got my LG3. Never looked further and got it...

I have always been a fan of guns. When I was younger I owned some real ones. I think these are better cause I can shoot them in the house. Well the aeg ones. Shot my mp7 propane... Don't smell so good.

So next question. Now that I have both an aeg and gbb. What general maintenance do they need? Like do they have parts that require any oil or anything?

Keep the barrel clean. Add silicone oil to the propane valve befor you screw on the adapter (if you got the airsoft innovation one it came with instructions and oil if no get light weight silicone rc shock oil from a hobby shop or the oil from airsoft innovations. Add a drop or two every 5 or 10 mags))
Not fully familiar with the mp7 but when you tear it down you will sed the contact points. Prolly alrdy have lube on them. Lotta folks use super lube. I usd madbull gearbox grease with teflon

Awesome Hectic. I have another question about the game in general... Do you guys use a side arm or do you find you just use a primary?

Sidearms are plentiful, generally in the form of pistols and sometimes small smgs (like your MP7). They are not actually used (read drawn) that often, but a lot of people carry them.

Sidearm isnt really needed. Its not a bad thing to have but you will only really need it if your primary goes down (ie totally out of ammo or dead battery)
Your mp7 is small enough to fit in some holsters. And there are some holsters for it on the market but you dont really need a sidearm unless your a sniper.
Canadian tire has the crossman c11 (i think thats what its called) its a co2 non blowback that is a good cheap sidearm (one of the few good clearsoft guns) or you can browse around for a gbb if you really want a sidearm but id invest in a good primary and extra mags befor a pistol (unless you got a big budget then go nuts lol)

AEG's require less maintenance than gas. I generally play 3 times a month. I try to clean my barrel after every game and I usually open up and clean/re-lube my gearbox once mid season and again near or at the end. Some guys do it once a season, some don't touch theirs till something breaks, and some guys may do it more often. I try to clean/re-lube my pistols after every 2 or 3 of uses.

I don't use my pistol very often in outdoor games, I really only use it if my primary goes down for whatever reason. Pistols generally don't have the range or volume to compete with an AEG so your tactics have to be altered. I don't always carry my pistol outdoors. My pistol gets 90% of it's use indoors where it can be used as a primary at certain venues or where the engagement distances are short enough to make a transition more favourable to a reload. I wouldn't say a pistol is by any means necessary, but it's nice to have something if your primary shits the bed.

I didn't know anyone either when I started out at 32. It doesn't take long to get to know people, it's a pretty small community so you'll see a lot of the same guys all over. Best thing to do is ask about people's guns and gear, most guys love to show their kit off. My first AEG was a clear gun with plastic gears from Walmart . I'm just glad I was able to return it a few days later and get my money back.

I am more af a pistol guy, so I use my riffle but first chance I have I use put out my side weapon.
If I decide to get a support weapon it may change my game...

My first ''kill'' on the field was with a 15$ crappy springer from wallmarde.

It's all about what you want to do

I found that when playing indoor (e.g. Ultimate Airsoft) that when I entered '"maze" like areas it was much easier for me to maneuver and acquire my target using a pistol compared to my MP5 (before I had my MP7).
However if you are using an MP7 you will most likely not need a pistol to better maneuver tight spaces, though it would be nice to have a back up in case your primary goes down or you run out of ammo for your primary.

Thanks guys, and thanks for the maintenance thread.

Still not sure if I am going to get the M4 or a side arm, if I go for a side arm... I really like the P226/229 style. Is there a brand to watch out for? I have found several that I really like, I wish I could post links but don't want to break any rules.

I see a TM-GBB-G26 that I really like but have concerns that in a holster it might be hard to get out if you need it as it looks like a small grip on it. Also a TM-DESERT WARRIOR 4.3 GBB really seems cool, holy cow... I am going to have to get a second job for this...

Also, is it possible to shoot GBB guns in the house without it reaking of Propane?

Are you using regular coleman propane? Green gas should do well with less smell but more money.

Use your paintball mask and LG3 and play at your field for awhile and see your play style. Since I'm a VFC fanboy, I'd say get one of those. They're all good right out of the box. Although you can never go wrong with an MP7!
