Now she is my favorite main gun.

academy l85a1
1) Manufacturer, Model Name
academy l85a1
2) Date Obtained
feb 06
3) Initial Cost
$250
4) New or Used
used (unused though)
5) Mechanical Problems
no real "issues" it was underpowered
6) Esthetic Problems
after takeing it apart numerous times screw holes began stripping out. the takedown was poorly thought out, gun splits in halfs, the susat was just a "1X" lens with a red led, it actually worked tho. body was not made of the greatest plastic, light, flimsy.
7) Rounds fired between failures
n/a gun problems due to my modifications, not manufacturers construction
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
i installed complete famas internals (everything but hte shell) may06 (which was unneccissary, a spring would have done just as well, as the gears and piston, motor were of good construction, i was just being careful) the famas motor didnt fit properly, which ended up causing a wack of problems down the road. it was wider than the stock motor so it cause the body to sit apart slightly which led to contact problems. also the required battery to run the new internals was too big to fit in the battery holder properly as it was designed only for a 7.2V.
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
march 06 $375
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
the gun was actually a good gun, despite its reputation. for anyone who is looking to get an l85 but doesnt want the 1k price tag of a star (g&g, ca ones not released yet) its actually is a good rifle. as i found the internals were of good construction, even had metal bushings. all you need to do to make it gameable is replace the spring, you dont wanna go too big tho, getting an 8.4V in the housing requires quite a bit of modding.

star l85a2
1) Manufacturer, Model Name
star l85a2
2) Date Obtained
feb07
3) Initial Cost
$1100
4) New or Used
used
5) Mechanical Problems
non to speak of really. found it does have the same fireing characteristics of a famas where you have to pull the trigger fully and release fully, you cant hal cock it like you could with an ar or the rifle jams and you need to switch to full, of hit the spring release to remedy. i dont see that as a problem with the gun, more so the habits of the user. march 31
6) Esthetic Problems
n/a
7) Rounds fired between failures
approx 2000 between skruface, r3con1 and myself, with me fireing the total majority.
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
n/a
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
n/a
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
very impressed with the gun. although the academy has a few features i kinda liked (a1 style furnishings) the gun is impressive in every way, the best ive ever handled to date. well see if it retains its title when i get a systema ptw.

gws (redwolf) xm8
1) Manufacturer, Model Name
gws (redwolf) xm8
2) Date Obtained
feb 06
3) Initial Cost
$400
4) New or Used
used
5) Mechanical Problems
n/a
6) Esthetic Problems
all body parts spilt in halves, which degrades body stability and rigidity, also you have a seam along the entire length of the body. no iron sights, "optics" is just a plastic "1X" peep sight.
7) Rounds fired between failures
n/a
would like to mention that i used cheap walmart bbs once and they jammed in the barrel back to the feed chamber, but thats related to the ammo, not the gun.
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
silent piston head, pdi 140%, spring. nov 06
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
n/a
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
gun is impressive, has a complete tm mechbox, body is nice, has rubberized accents on the grips, which is a nice feature.

10) Optional - Notes and Comments
slide assy i got had manufacturing problems. barrel was not right diameter to allow inner barrel to fit inside, trades arent engraved. but thats not oem parts, so its not too particularily applicable.

we dragon b
1) Manufacturer, Model Name
we dragon b
2) Date Obtained
sept 06
3) Initial Cost
$250
4) New or Used
used
5) Mechanical Problems
saftey became dislodged when gun was dropped, rendering the gun unusable, but it was repairable w/o replacing any parts. gun is a gas hog. i can barley go through a mag on propane. factory mag feed lips are fragile.
6) Esthetic Problems
grip saftey (nonfunctional) can become dislodged from body if cought on anything, even your holster upon drawing, not a problem, but its disconcerning.
7) Rounds fired between failures
n/a about 500
8) Changes to Internals (upgrades, dates)
n/a
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
n/a
10) Optional - Notes and Comments
nice wieght, nice look. like how you can use tm mags/ parts. but gas hog. almost think a tm might be a better buy.

Dare I say you like your 226's? Are these all separate weapons you've dealt with up to this point?
