CYMA CM.022 (ak-47)
2) Date Obtained
mid-March 2007
3) Initial Cost
unknown
4) New or Used
New
5) Mechanical Problems
Adjusting hop-up doesnt seem to make any diffrence in accuracy
6) Esthetic Problems
Stock wobles and later will require glue or it will come off completly. Counter weight in body is guled in-properly, and will require you to take the stock apart and fix it so the battery can fit into the stock.
7) Rounds fired between failures
no failures yet, rounds fired aprox 1000
8) Changes to Internals and Externals
none
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
unknown
-
10)Notes and Comments
Cheaply made, Im paranoid it will completly come apart if I were to drop it by accedent. Rate of fire pritty good, but lacks range and FPS in order to be used in traditional games against higher quality guns.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name
TM, M3 Super 90 Shorty
2) Date Obtained
March 2004
3) Initial Cost
$430
4) New or Used
New
5) Mechanical Problems
Tri-nozzle crushed (Fall '04)
Nylon piston heads lost compression (may actually be a cylinder problem) (Winter 2006)
Grip screw broke tab that holds grip on (can be avoided by not overtightening grip screw) (2006)
Shell door broken off (Spring 2005)
6) Esthetic Problems
Bolt handle (fake) can bend the mock ejector cover easily if caught on something, also gets loose and needs retightening from inside.
7) Rounds fired between failures
~ 2000 Tri-nozzle failure seems to be due to pumping too fast.
8) Changes to Internals and Externals
New metal tip put on tri-nozzle.
Velcro on receiver for shells.
Washer installed in grip to hold screw.
Shell door reattached.
Fiber optic front sight.
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
unknown
-
10)Notes and Comments
Good shotgun, but the tri-nozzle is an achilles' heel. Mostly plastic construction (only large metal parts are the barrel and pump assembly) is robust, but easy to work on.
Practically guaranteed to break eventually...

1) Manufacturer, Model Name
CA, AUG A1/2 (A1 lower, A2 upper)
2) Date Obtained
Feb 2006 (lower) Nov 2006 (upper)
3) Initial Cost
$425
4) New or Used
New
5) Mechanical Problems
Trigger mechanism for semi-auto is touchy.
Feed nozzle (point where bbs enter from the mag) is too tight due to moulding lines around the end. Fixed by shaving flashing off with a model knife.
Hop up bucking too soft. Fixed by putting plastic tube inside it to keep it round. (not very good stock hop-up either)
Cylinder bent (!!??) (Apr 2007)
Bad wiring, especially battery connector.
Pinion gear set screw has literally vanished twice. (Fall 2006 + Apr 2007)
Anti-reversal latch has a chip- has not affected performance.
6) Esthetic Problems
Minor scratches. Body is all metal/"glass fibre" :P so is very robust.
7) Rounds fired between failures
Trigger acts up from time to time, otherwise more or less 6000 have been through it. (probably more)
8) Changes to Internals and Externals
Guarder short barrel kit (teflon tape around inner barrel inside this prevents wobble)
Rewired electrical w/ Dean's Ultra connectors
150% spring
Bearing spring guide
Guarder silicone hop-up (has stretched, not currently installed, will be replaced)

Short mod: stock M4 inner barrel

Long mod: Madbull Black Python tightbore
CA HK33 outer barrel

9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
N/A
-
10)Notes and Comments
Electrical and trigger issues are most likely due to being an early production model.
A1 optics and upper receiver are very good, but I no longer have them.
Shot 330 fps stock with .20 AE BBs, shoots ~370 now.
AE bb's jam Python tightbore.

March 2007
3) Initial Cost
$350 ish?
4) New or Used
New
5) Mechanical Problems
None at all.
Run on propane and duster with no issues.
Slide has jammed back once, but seems to be a fluke or some brush caught in it.
6) Esthetic Problems
Slide scratched up a bit from fitting into Kydex holster.
Does not fit well into kydex style holsters meant for the glock 17 due to an overlarge rail.
7) Rounds fired between failures
About 500 rounds through it.
8) Changes to Internals and Externals
None
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name
Maruzen, Vz.61 Scorpion
2) Date Obtained
2005
3) Initial Cost
$300
4) New or Used
Used
5) Mechanical Problems
Pin that catches mag follower broke off, allowing the gun to dry-fire on an empty mag. This is caused by a weak pin and letting the follower slam upwards with no bbs in the mag.
Receiver shell separates from time to time on firing. (just needs to be clicked back in place, otherwise no effect on anything)
6) Esthetic Problems
None of note.
Most people ask why the pistol grip isn't wood.
Stock scratches thicker barrel in folded position.
7) Rounds fired between failures
At least 1000 rounds through it.
8) Changes to Internals and Externals
KM threaded metal barrel.
Ghetto stock point attached at base of stock.
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
N/A
-
10)Notes and Comments
Very good gun. Controllable fire rate, but poor sights (which are adjustable).
Stock is basically useless other than for show, and recoil control, as it cannot be used with the sights.

Early 2006? ~$400 with mags and holster.

Very quiet with suppressor, very accurate, good power.
Gun got the nickname "cheater meter" by local players since it is so stealthy, some people would look around when hit but not call hit because they didn't hear anything. :P

10) Very relible, quiet. love this gun

EDIT/UPDATE: April 27 2008. so i finally had a failure using my p90. not of the typical sort either. in my firing assembly there is what i can only call a semi auto stop lever. when you push the trigger in something pushes this lever and it stop the action. i'm not too sure what it is for, but the trigger assembly (right on the mechbox) was butting up againts it. preventing me from touching the contacts and firing. the gun was dead. so as a quick fix i removed the lever. only to find i no longer have semi auto function. i am not sure if i can repair it or not as of yet.

shit, forgot about this crapper.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name (name of weapon on box, and weapon replicated if different from model name)
- WELL D90 (P90 TR)
2) Date Obtained
- March 2007
3) Initial Cost
- $40
4) New or Used
- used, and lose (no box)
5) Mechanical Problems (Gearbox issues, hopup issues.. basically functional performance related -- supply date of issue)
- It is suppose to suck ass. ALSO THE BATTERY IS UNLABELLED (7.4v)
6) Esthetic Problems (Paint damage, cracks in body, loose parts.. physical construction related -- supply date of issue)
- Oh god. The two halves dont line up, there are no iron sights, the body has weights in it that are two wide causing it to split. When I took it apart to steal the gearbox the magazine latch shattered. looks like a 5 dollar toy. Has about a billion screws. And the crappy sling mounts rattle.
7) Rounds fired between failures (think how many bags of BB's used before it failed. If no failure, list rounds fired up to this point)
- Never fired a shot, only dry fired
8) Changes to Internals and Externals (upgrades, mods, dates)
- removed the gear box within first day. Now an empty shell (doesn't look very good) The gearbox was damaged when I was working on it so It doesn't work anymore. It was going to be used in a nerf gun body as a fun little project. Now I have two weapon shells (D90 and Nerf maverick)
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
- N/A
10)Notes and Comments (Optional)
Stupid thing broke. Oh well. I'm might turn the body shell into a MEAN watergun.
