Lightbulb Just picked up a gun.

Hey i just picked up a tactical force tf16 and was wondering if it is customizable or compatible with most other m4 pieces.
ie new stock, internals, front of the gun (thing that goes over the barrel on the m4 no idea of the technical name.)

Generally, the TF16 is an incredebly low quality gun not worth the money.

I agree, the only TF gun ive had any luck with is the TF11, it works well, its just not very good, lol
Id say sell the TF 16 and get something like a JG or G&G, G&G GR 16 goes for about 300 bucks

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

Just the part that you need in order to make it a gameable gun will cost more than what the gun cost you to start with...

If you just picked-it up, I'd suggest you to get it back to the store and wait for a refund. Then, accumulate some money.

In the meanwhile, if you're 18+, get age verified.

If you're replacing both internals and externals, why not just purchase a better gun from the start?

Some people wait four years to play this sport. Eight months isn't that long. Save up some money over that time period and buy something good off the classifieds when it's time. You can even use the fact it's Christmas to get contributions from relatives.

Nothing short of a complete rebuild will bring this up to gaming standards, and that will cost a whole lot more than a new stock gun from a decent company.

Use it for what it is, a cheap POS or training for mechbox repairs.

It's SUPPOSE to be compatible, but there are pretty good chances that a lot of the parts are poorly made and will not be. It will be cheaper to replace the entire mechbox, and the motor, probably with a JG set off of velocityarms lol. Even then, I would assume that the low-grade plastic will crack or break quite easily, and you may have to replace those as well, then you end up with one of those semi-rare cases where the only stock part on your gun is the screws in the pistol grip
