Wow great advice pusangani.

He's already said he's not looking for that answer, he's looking for help to get his gun fixed. If you feel that this is an 'unfixable situation' than state so from your gundoctoring experience and suggest it's better left be.

Never said you needed years of gun doc experience to give advice. Just back up your statements by explaining them. Telling him why you suggest doing something willl do FAR more for helping him learn than saying "Your guns shit. Buy a new one". Especially considering he already admitted it wasn't the greatest gun, but for now was all he had.

Now if you had actually elaborated on why fixing it wouldn't work, than great. But as it was, that was a useless post, just like that last one.

This section of the board isn't for discussion or arrogant comments, it's for information.

And something to tinker with to learn the basic mechanics of an AEG with risking breaking something.

Bounces where in the chamber? Without seeing it firsthand, I'm not sure if I can help with this...

While he's right that this fps does seem to be the average in most new guns these days, you'd have gotten much longer life out of your gun if you had something like the modify M90, it wouldn't be so hard on your gun.

Ha, sounds like you made it stronger than it was before.

I'd hang onto that gun for now, and if you make it to a game before (and stilll want it working) see if there's a local gun doc who could at least look at it while you're there, give you some opinions. Although I'm not sure it'd be worth it to pay him to take it home and open it up (depending on his hourly rates I guess)

Sounds like the box is stronger than it was before :P.

Well I suppose theres a good chance that it is the same, hopefully the exact same. From what I recall on the topic I believe there could be issues with fitment with an actual metallic version 2 mechbox. However in airsoft as in life things do change, its more than possible that you could perform a straight out swap with little to no issues.
