I mean you need a lot. In the water there is some of the molecules that break in O+ and OH- ions =, but that quantity is minimal. With the help of the electric current that travels in the motor (and water around it). The amount of O+ is getting a bit higher. That is one of the reasons why I run the motor on low voltage. It reduce the effect the electric current as on the division of the water molecules.

Anyways. Still been 5 years I do it and no sign of rust at all.

Went to a game 2 weeks ago at Flag Raiders and it was humid as hell and it rained. By the end of it my AUG was slipping out of my hands (had gloves on) cuz it was slick with rain.

Wiped it down (Shemaghs are so handy for everything) before I put it away in it's case and there hasn't been any rust problems.

I'm sure you don't take offense at being insulted after providing a constructive response </sarcasm>. Not only did I run a search myself, I provided the links as well.


I don't think I do nor do I pretend to have any amount of 'authority' here on ASC. If you want to be an asshole to me, don't expect me to like you.

Two tier body. If rain got inbetween the steel, and ABS, wouldn't that make drying the gun off a tad harder?

Pretty sure that constitutes a ban..

But seriously. Both of you need to stop thinking with your dicks. This isn't a cock waving sausage fest. And arman, you can show him you're the bigger man, by dropping it (or atleast insulting him w/o the use of nasty words ), and forgettin' bout it. Not hard gals!

It isn't steel, it's aluminum IIRC (whatever it is, it doesn't rust...), and the parts fit together so tightly that any water in there would be minimal to the point of not being an issue.

Yes, the body parts are infact aluminum, however the fittings are not. As well, the type of alloy used will corrode just not with the "ferrous" reddish brown.

You aren't immersing it. You're talking about rain hitting the top cover, defying gravity and going underneath the inside of the top cover, down in between PLASTIC and aluminum, and in enough of a quantity to wreck the gun. I don't see rain being an issue at all, as long as you properly dry out your gun afterwards...

Water defies gravity all the time. Although I can't see enough water infiltrating the cover to do serious damage.

I'm pretty sure it's steel. Almost every site says it is. Plus, don't you think it'd be kinda.. stupid.. to use aluminum sheets?
