  1. Rubbing alcohol would be better. Water is not going to do much to the oil inside your barrel.
  2. Some? Massive amounts of misinformation is constantly being passed as the Gospel.
  3. Air Nozzle air seal is irrelevant. Fluid dynamics proves this. Air pressure moves forward, not backwards under the nozzle. The Myth of having an air seal o-ring nozzle needs to die. Thinking the proper way to test compression involves the nozzle is wrong. In the car world, it would be like sticking a hub cap over a custom alloy wheel. Top companies like TM and Krytac never saw a need to install o-ring nozzles and top line parts manufactures (not talking about re bagged stock parts here) don't make upgrade nozzles "readily" available. O-ring nozzles came about (like a few other Airsoft parts, bearings on the piston head or spring guide for an example) due to design errors. And then idiots exacerbated the situation thinking that since one bearing is good two much be better...when in fact its the opposite that rang true. Skip trying to "find" a matched nozzle...it's something you don't need to do.
  4. Way back when...it was the cut angle where the sear grabbed the piston. 45 degree cut or 90 degree cut, which is better for grabbing something holding back a heavier spring. But, I gave up on Bolt Action Rifles...15 years ago for practical reasons...
  5. Taiwan...try email VFC. Surprisingly they have been answering emails and sending parts after payment.

  7. Yep. Same receiver. Back in the day I rocked 6 TM Hicaps and a 5000mah battery
  8. 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.
  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. 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...
  11. 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%.
  12. 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.
