Basic gearbox upgrade is 40$ this includes shims, de-grease, re-grease, porting the piston head and instalation of any aftermarket parts

Basix gearbox maintenance and inspection is 25$

Custom machining work is charged at 40$ an hour...think it's expensive... My boss bills me out at 127$/hour so do the math. Yeah I'm on part with cnc millings. The joy of die making.

Possessed guns well... the final price will depend on the anount of sanity I lost figuring it out...anywhere from 20$ to 200$

Top SAWs well a complete rebuild and tuneup is about 150$

CA guns... don't waist my time.

ICS guns... yeah well...mabie....

As for parts I have a bunch of Guarder upgrade parts offered at decent price. The client is free to buy them or order his own. In the end it's all the same to me.

The time I spend on other peoples guns is time I don't have to fix or mod mine, play with my girls or relax. Time is money and so is my time.

And since I get about 4 guns a week for various reasons, being shipped to me from as far as Manitoba, I figure I'm doing something right.

There is nothing complicated about these airsoft guns, just the hype on every thread is "take it to a doctor". But if your dumb enough to mess up a stock gun with upgrades then maybe your dumb enough to pay somebody to fix it for you.


I'll add something else, if someone offers you $$ to do a simple job then take it.
Thats a fantastic attitude, you musn't have done upgrades to any degree or have no life at all. Here in Toronto I got so overloaded with repairs that I had to stop because it was ruling all my free time. Even though I was getting paid it wasn't worth it, it became a full time job.

No one in thier right mind is going to do that for free.

Aww, I heard that Sean got himself into a group home, with a straight job bagging groceries at the loeb's.... Too bad he's back on the street.
