  3. I just recently got into spring powered snipers. I almost exclusively use AEGs, so I have never bothered to do upgrades on my one spring sniper, an ASG SportLine m40a3. I purchased this one because it is easy to upgrade (I've heard from many experienced spring sniper users) and it was quite cheap, and even performed decently out of the box. One of the first improvement items I encountered in the context of spring sniper rifles was a 45 degree vs 90 degree piston. What does that mean? I've seen some stuff about the way the sear engages the spring, but it seemed likely that was something entirely different, because I didn't see how it would make sense to name a piston after the way the sear engages the spring. Could somebody please clarify all this? Thanks in advance!
  4. Last week
  5. Yep. Same receiver. Back in the day I rocked 6 TM Hicaps and a 5000mah battery
  6. is the prowin m4 hop unit compatible with a g3? google is giving my mixed results, best I can gather is the rotary type fits but not the side wheel type
  7. You can't. It's going to creak and flex - period. If you chemically alter it to be stiff...it becomes brittle. There is no room inside for any reinforcement what so ever...as a former G3 user...I went short to eliminate the length and the creak.
  8. I want to stiffen up my plastic g3 receiver (cant find a metal body anywhere!), anybody done this? any tips would be appreciated
  9. That defines a battery. If a battery went to 0 volts at no capacity...your table would be a battery too. https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/what-is-a-battery/all - What is a battery... As for why a bad battery was sent with your AEG, Capitalism. They didn't say it was a good battery, nor were they required to sell you a good battery. Same for the charger. As for the Tenergy you bought...wrong battery for the wrong application. Why are there so many variations of tires out there? Different needs, requires different tread patterns and tire designs to handle different purposes. Don't just assume anything will work, one needs the specs to get the right item for the right job. Your Thompson model could have come from a bad batch where the mechbox was assembled to tightly. It happens when the company commission the run goes to the cheapest maker out there, which Cybergun does to have the Thompson made. One set of .1mm shims to many in a batch and the AEG requires more power to turn. Since your pack was already at it's limit for performance...it fails. That is why you don't buy a pack that "barely" is capable of supplying power that is needed. Plus this is Airsoft...notice the warranty is pretty much a joke...60 days, 90 at best. And if the seller determines it's user tampering...its void. The warranty period says a lot about how this industry is buyer beware and not new user friendly.
  10. Thank you. The graphs were quite helpful. Sorry for the ignorance, but when I looked at your last visual, the voltage table, I noticed 0% capacity on every battery was not 0 volts. Why is that? Sorry, I do not know much about batteries. Also, why did a battery that was incompatible with the AEG I purchased come with the AEG the first time? Why was the tenergy battery I purchased to replace the stock battery also incompatible with the AEG? I know other people who use tenergy batteries and don't have problems. What is peculiar about this thompson, if anything? Thanks in advance.
  11. You can't hear tones...text does not convey tones and if it comes across in "text" as condescending...I apologize. But, to many...this isn't a trival matter...like many hobby there are enthusiasts and some quite knowledgeable in all matters of the sport...or at least certain parts of it. As for you're question about battery...yes it does. I know this for direct experience, from NICD to NIMH and NIZN in Nickel. Or Lithium, LIPO, LIFEPO4 and LION. Here are some graphs all showing starting points for fully charged packs. And another And another from an RC site with cell voltage listed I don't make stuff up...I back it with facts and I have been doing this with Airsoft since the 1980s... There are some HO LIPO's that have a cell capacity of 4.4V per cell...fully charged that is...
  12. Not to be rude, but here's a word of advice; this is airsoft. A trivial matter at best. It's not a discussion about anything consequential. There is no reason to be condescending, in fact it is quite unwise if your goal is to advise and have the recipient of said advice listen. But I did listen and appreciate the advice. But does it? You say it can, but does it? Is the 7.4v label simply false? Thanks.
  13. That it does, but you really need to get out of this video game mentality of a certain spec is what you need to get. You need to look at the whole picture. And you have much to learn to get over your assumptions of which they are only partially correct. 15A Minimum = C x mah What you get must exceed 15A at a minimum. So any pack with C x mah that exceed 15A, you are fine. As for a 2S 7.4 being less in voltage, you are not correct in a real life situation. On paper you are correct. Under no load at a barely charged level a 2S Lipo is 7.4V while a 7 cell NIMH is at 8.4V. However this is a MINIMUM Value, not a maximum value. A fully charged 7 cell 2/3A NIMH pack with a 1600mah Cell capacity exhibits a "no load" voltage of 9.45V (~1.35V) for each cell. For a 2S LIPO a fully charge pack can exhibit a no load charge of ~8.4V (~4.2V per cell). However, in real life there are details like battery chemistry performance and in this case NIMH are pretty bad "under load". A 15A Draw on a 2/3A full charged cells drops the output voltage down to ~1.1V and gets even lower as the pack drains. So a 7 cell pack now has an output voltage of ~7.7V. Meanwhile the 2S LIPO nominal voltage hardly changes under load and stays around ~8.2V. So which one now has a lower voltage, which equates to trigger response? Plus the 2700mah pack I am referring to that is configured to replace a mini-pack. The one sold for Airsoft is only found openly for sale on eBay...by me. Or you can just get it from me directly, less eBay fees of 12%.
  14. So all the 2700mah 2s LIPO batteries I see give different "C" options. I assume C stands for Coulomb, but I don't know. What "C" option should I select? Also, all the 2700mah 2s LIPO batteries I see are 7.4v, which offer a lower rate of fire than I wish it did, and a less snappy trigger response. Should I disregard this and buy the thing anyway? Thanks.
  15. B6/Hota Class Logic Charger https://www.amazon.com/Intelligent-Multifunction-Battery-Balance-Charger/dp/B07FMYW4ZG/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=b6+charger&qid=1585232156&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExNURXMTM1VFE5U0E4JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODM0MTQ2TU9LUDRZVlU4UEpPJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAwNTUyNzMxMk80WFZHUUxMRlRZJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ== You will need a AC/DC power supply for that one. Use your car battery or just add in an AC/DC unit, like this: https://www.amazon.com/Futurebatt-Charger-Adapter-Balance-MONITORS/dp/B07CG47TVS/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=b6+charger&qid=1585232239&sr=8-13 Look and Tenergy has their rebrand model for double the price. https://www.amazon.com/Tenergy-Balance-Charger-Discharger-Connectors/dp/B00466PKE0/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=b6+charger&qid=1585232239&sr=8-6 See how they prey on the inexperienced? As for a battery, get a 2700mah 2S LIPO. Good power curve, unlike your Tenergy packs which have a rapidly decreasing power curve and it has 60% more power capacity for the same price as a 1600mah Tenergy NIMH.
  16. It is a product made by VFC. It has a Tamiya Connector (no such thing as a Small Tamiya) it does not use Deans. The listing for the AEG says it needs a Butterfly Battery and the one you select is a mini-brick. This is a butterfly configuration pack: The above is actually a Nunchucku configuation, but the industry is rather dumb in the correct nomenclature. What you can use is either. Short NC/Butteryfly or mini-bricks can fit your buffer from the looks of it...however. You are getting fleeced by buying consumables from Evike. That pack and charger (an not a very good charger) can be purchased independently on the open market for half price. You also should not buy a cheap charger that charges via the management cable. If you loose a charge channel being that the charger is cheap...it will destroy your battery. For 40.00 you can get better chargers on Amazon like a B6/Hota Imax charger or clone. Never buy AEG's that come with batteries and chargers. The perceived value is NOT there. It is only bundled for one purpose...to make you, the new player think you are getting a great deal. The 1.00 charger and that 2.00 battery pack allows them to charger you 40.00 more for the package... Ala-cart is the best way to go in Airsoft.
  17. That is how it's modeled on the real magazine.
  18. why does the amoeba arms pmg-300 airsoft m4 magazine say restricted law enforcement & government use only?
  19. Hello, everyone. As the title mentions, I'm new to this and just received my first gun. It's the PTS VPSC VIRGO MK-I. I didn't realize that it did not come with a battery. According to the description it takes a battery with a Dean connector. However, the comments on the page say it's a small tamiya connector. Again, new to this so not sure what to trust. Advice? Will one of these packages work? Next, I'm going to add a suppressor to it. It comes with the orange muzzle device. Before I go and break the thing, it is screw on, right? It doesn't have any flats to aid in unscrewing. Advice? Any other advice you have for a newb would be appreciated. Thanks.
