I'm fairly certain it's Aluminum (or some alloy there of). Every site I've seen has either just mentioned it as being "metal" or actually saying it's aluminum. Then again, I'm assuming ICS uses the same metal in all of their AEGs (as I am talking about an ICS MP5, not an AK).

I'm talking about the ICS AK74M. There are some parts which are obviously aluminum (bolt), but others seem too rigid to be aluminum.. example: 2mm thick outer shell. If it were aluminum, I'm sure it'd dent, and scratch alot easier.

It isn't steel.

Also, 2mm thick aluminum would be a lot tougher than you seem to think. Auto bodies are made with thinner stock.

An airplane's fuselage coverings are no different (although they may be thicker than 2mm...but 2mm is still a good chunk of Al).

What, you really thought you could hide behind a PM? Act like an Asshat behind the scenes and someone's going to put out it in plain view.

I guess you won't make that mistake again.

for the gent. talking about running a motor in water to help seat the brushes, I have heard of this for a sealed can. but if you have a means to run the motor at a lower amperage, you do not need to run a motor that you can open up. it serves no purpose, I may be mistaken though. also my metal body is aluminum, I have never also the gearbox is cast aluminum, I am quite sure. maybe take a magnet to it. but just don't use an aluminum magnet.

Arman, Vipamave, and now Whozat.
Do the mature thing and just stop it.
Arman, what would your child think if they saw how you have acted in this thread? Vipamave, have the decency and morality to keep private pm's private.
That's why they are called Private Messages.

So stop.

Rain will rust certain parts of your aeg, not much else.

Excuse me? Mature? Explain to me how I wasn't. And as far as PMs are concerned, is this the first time you've seen this occur? Stick around, you'll see it more often. You are right though PM does stand for Private Message, but for one to think that they can hide behind that and not be exposed is just plain ignorant.

I just finished playing a game this past weekend where it rained a rediculous amount. The only issue suffered by AEG's at the game was a bit of water entering the barrel which made the BB's spin out of control. As soon as the barrell dried out the issue was gone. SO i wouldn't be too worried about having water runing down the barrel into the mechbox since the BB's will clear it out (unless you have submerged the gun of course)
