AEG that doesn't sound like a toy

Hey guys,

Are there any AEG's out there that have great performace and don't sound like like a wind up toy. I am looking for something that doesn't have that electic motor sound and sounds a bit closer to the real thing. Some of the blow back AEG seem to sound better, but I have not heard many good things about them as AEG.

If there are not any like that, are there ways to surpress this motor sound without sacrificing performance?

I thought of going to air but I would rather have an AEG.

no such thing, unfortunately All AEG sounds like a sewing machine the only one that does not sound like one is a CAW M134

The wind up comes from the motor, the gears and the "wind up" of the compressing the piston. Sort of a ziiip-twack of a shot. Plus the motor noise.

A precocking gun, that cocks the piston at the end of the shot has a "backwards" wind up...sort of twack-ziiip where you hear the shot, then a wind up, plus the motor noise. HK33E, PSG1, G&G L85

Some guns basically eliminate the delay (or comes very close to it). A working PTW has near instantaneous shot. Any "wind-up" is minimal compared to an AEG. So basically you just get a twack sound from each shot. No recoil or any "rifle-like" effect....but no sewing machine noise. Mind you...you'll might still hear the motor...but not the gears when the piston is being compressed. If you haven't tried a PTW, try one if you can. When they work, they're gold...when they don't they suck.

Any of the "blow back" AEGs are either destructive...or are really dinky. More of an annoying clink-clack than actual bolt/firing noise. Sounds like your bolt is made out of a pop can when it cycles.

A gas blowback rifle is the only way to escape the sewing machine sound.

You can minimize it but not eliminate it.

There was a post somewhere about making an AEG quieter, one things you can do is use sorbo pads, shim your gears right and set your motor height right. It will still sound like a sewing machine but it will minimize the "toy-like" sound.

The only real way is to go with a GBBR but in that case it's a money pit.

Every hobby is a money pit.

Just pick where you want to spend it.

Building on what people said here. It will always be there, but if you want to make your AEG sounds better: Make sure the motor is adjusted perfectly, make sure your gears are shimmed well, Install a metal piston head (WARNING: Metal piston heads will wear your mechbox much faster, and will make it much more likely to break)

Comm lathe'd and balanced motor
Proper motor height
Helical gears that are shimmed to perfection in bearings that fit properly
properly greased with a viscous grease
Sorbo piston head with a sorbo cylinder head
Light weight piston
Trigger Master unit with Active Breaking and Soft Start
High voltage battery that'll provide an instant trigger response
Cover the dead spots in the AEG with dense material (Epoxy, hot glue, expanding foam)

A PTW with a one of those Novesk thingies to enhance the sound of the air discharge.
