    Custom M4: was JG, not anymore lol, only thing stock is the plastic body and the trigger, and the tamiya connector but that will be deans within a week JG Bar-10: neo-piston, 110 spring Schmeisser MP-40
  1. Constant load also wears down springs. Compressing a spring all the way for a long time adds tension on the metal and can, given enough time, alter the length of the spring by repositioning the molecules. 2 days, probably doesn't hurt it. 2 months...that might, and you'll have to re-stretch it. Just look at car springs. I hate when people say long time compression doesn't hurt springs...it does, but it depends on the spring. After 150k miles or so, compare the spring to a new OEM spring. Usually they are about .5 inch shorter and are softer. Airsoft springs are much softer than car springs, and lose their firmness faster. If it seemed fine, your spring probably isn't too bad.
  2. works better than electrical tape and probably won't slide as much in the 111º heat.
  3. Okay, 1 shouldn't be causing the problem. 2: by "basically" stock, does that mean you upgraded one or both of the sears? I'm going to assume they are both JG. 3: yes it is, it can cause friction and loss of compression, possibly a lockup, or o-ring tear. Lube your entire cylinder on the inside lightly with silicone grease. Just take a penny size dab and rub it all throughout the cylinder with your finger or a long swab or something. Also, have you lubed the piston sear and the trigger sear with grease? Lube every moving part on the surfaces that touch. very lightly is all it takes. Have you put the Teflon cylinder back in to check if it works or slams after this incident occurred with the stock cylinder? 5: Stock spring means it's not jumbling up causing a lockup, that's good. 6: is good. so worry about 3. Let me know how that works out.
  4. 1) What brand of piston are you using? 2) What brand of piston/trigger sear are you using? 3) Did you lube your cylinder? 4) Any CLOSE UP (use macro function) pictures of your trigger sear's sides, piston sear, spring guide stopper? 5) What spring are you using? 6) Is your spring guide stopper in place and unbroken? Most likely a hairline fracture in the middle of your trigger sear near the pin that supports the piston sear. This is what happened to mine.
  5. Those 2 areas are the only places you should teflon tape. Anywhere else and it will not affect performance. No air nozzle teflon tape. lol blow chunks.
  6. no no, my gun never arcs at 300 feet. it's a million fps. rofl. I use a soft bucking in my BAR-10...works amazing. Part of it is ripped, but it doesn't affect the air sealing or the bb flight.
  7. FLIP FLOOOOOOPS.... Nice gun man. real nice! Wish mine said Stoner Rifle on the side, too bad it's not an SR-25 either.
  8. I started with walmart, but if you're going anywhere other than your back yard, I would go an online retailer, or a local retailer that is dedicated to airsoft. Crosman BB's probably will not shatter in your gun, but they will when they hit your target or something near your target. BBs should deform, not shatter. Since you are looking toward mp5s, go the JG or Echo1 MP5/AK74 route, or if you have a money tree, a Tokyo Marui MP5-J or G&G CRW. Also, crosman BBs fly wildly because of air bubbles, and they jam in any barrel less than 6.08mm inner diameter.
  9. with only 1 bb fired, right? and how much would it arc? 0º
  10. I had this problem before...but not with a teflon cylinder. I just took it all apart, cleaned it, and put it back together. It seemed to fix the issue. You probably have too little lubrication in the cylinder making it stick. Yes, even teflon needs lubrication if you want it to seal correctly and slide.
  11. yes I love my magpul grip, although it can get hot and stay hot... and I had to shave a bit with a knife to get the heatsink to slide freely into the grip. it takes metric hex fine-threaded screws that are easily obtained at your hardware store. It has plenty of room for wiring, and it has something similar to rivet nuts (which reverts back to the thread topic)!
  12. as my sig image shows, I have an adaptive role weapon. it's awesome...when it works. At least you're smart and try to get as many parts as you can from the same manufacturer.
  13. use imageshack and your bandwidth won't go out. haha. but yes. exactly like that. iPad? Seriously, if I could, I'd blend them all using a blender.
  14. Puffin, if you can get that thing to handle like a butter knife, like it does in Call of Fail, I'd say you're good.
  15. If you want to hit anything with reasonable accuracy, 120 feet is a good start. The farthest headshot I've ever made was 181 feet, for instance.
