  1. Honestly Save for the G&P or KWA. Unless you have high hopes to immediately upgrade these other brands I think you will be massively disappointed. If you are absolutely without question getting one of these and you can't wait, I would suggest the CYMA.
  2. The UAR is trash in my opinion. Terrible quality internals and very poor externals. The upside is that it is unique. I may bejumping the gun here but it seems like at this point you're not super interested in upgrading your weapon. I may be wrong but if you want a decent platform you can start with something like the KWA CQR. Before I get bashed for suggesting this because of it's "proprietary" internals, I will say that this is an above average out of the box AEG that can handle a beatin. This of course is oriented towards the just go out and play. The KWA Commando is a slightly better version of the CQR offering a full metal body, and rear wiring to the crane stock, but the same very very good out of the box internals. If you dislike these I can suggest others for you.
  3. In terms of pistol lights I generally prefer the Surefire x300 replicas, or even the hard to find TRL-1 replicas that are availble at places like airsoftpeak.com and shootercbgear.com.
  4. Crane stock for looks and full stock for the sheer amount of battery you can store.... Crane stocks are also awesome for battery storage if you're running split cell lipos, but lemme tell ya theres nothing like putting a 5500 mAh 11.1v in the full stock and blasting all day....
  5. Nicely done. Light weight I would guess. And if you're still debating about the action army mag, mine works extremely well. Same output and consistency as my 2 expensive tanaka mags. As for the pistol grip it looks like it might be at slightly the wrong angle. How is it secured to the the body? Is it just screwed straight in?
  6. IMO the kjw will be a much better pistol. Although an option that has escaped your attention is the Tokyo marui high capa. It is cheaper than the zombie killer you linked is is widely regarded as the most upgradable pistol platform on the market. Furthermore as a TM it will perform very well and the efficiency will be better than either of the linked options. Evike currently has both the high capa 4.3 and high capa 5.1 available.
  7. The other thing that may be going on is the difference between the tooth thickness of the replacement gear and the gear that came out of the gun originally. Fastest test would be to make sure that, without a spring, the gears will completely cycle and release the last tooth. I wouldn't suggest that you hook the motor up for this. All you have to do is install everything like normal just minus your spring, and simply turn the gears by hand making the piston retract. Once retracted completely see if the piston will release forward by hand. The anti-reversal will help to make sure that ever thing is clearing properly by not allowing the gears to rotate. I have only seen this a few times but there might be just enough difference that the piston will not release.
  8. I may not be all that old, but damn this seems just like me... ha ha
  9. Human is what we all are. Hindsight is always 20-20. All said and done you did the right thing here though. I dunno that there is anything that I would have done differently. In fact you did extremely well to cover your
  10. I was never trying to be offensive just offering an outside perspective on the situation as it develops. I do think that your response here is warranted seeing as defending yourself is a natural response to being slandered/attacked/berated. The way in which you approach your written account is spot on in my opinion, but it is a bit text heavy and repetitive. I think a lot of this argument stems from the old rock and a hard place phrase. This is airsoft and god forbid a part was actually "drop in" or indestructible. Things happen constantly, including the breakage of brand new parts. I think where everything gets really weak here is the fact that somehow all of these issues are occurring pretty much right after they were returned to Dru after he put you up against it with a hard deadline. There are 2 ways to think about this: 1) No offense, but maybe the work wasn't up to par. This is unfortunately a realistic possibility, however even here vanevery has a small benefit because of the rushed timeline. Either way though as the tech you should have fought quite a bit harder to keep Dru from pushing you to the point where some mistakes could have been made. Although Dru may not have been pleased that only 1-2 of the 3 guns were finished it would have guaranteed you the time you needed to fully correct all issues. This is one of the hardest things as a tech. Often customers have unrealistic expectations for upgrades and builds. I find that it is extremely important that you put your foot down when accepting the item. You made it clear that it would be hard to get it all done, but be sure that you have plenty of time for yourself and establish a longer timeline that you think you need. You must stick to our guns here! This then can lead to an added benefit of completion early which will make your customers even happier. Never forget that if these upgrades could be done by them they wouldn't be coming to you. 2) Dru damaged the guns post return. Because of the nature of this exchange we can't know what he did or how he treated his weapons. Furthermore all warranty service I provide is nullified if the weapon is altered post leaving my hand. (Of course things like changing the hop up and such don't matter, but I am referring to things like barrel group changes and internals.) Simply put we will never ever know exactly how this went down. I think you have so far handled this rather well. I understand no wanting to put the cart in front of the horse in terms of evidence, but if this should come to any major head, it good to know you have those things in your pocket. I do side with you here on this I am just trying to provide a bit of level headed objectivity. Sometimes in light of being attacked we forget there might have been a few things both parties erred on. In this case you seem to be mostly on the right though. Even if the work was a tad bit shoddy the timeline was changed and you trying to do the right thing and help him out. You did the best you could under the circumstance, and frankly I applaud you. Do your best to remain professional and best of luck!

  12. Interesting.... This nation is built on the premise that we can believe what we wish, and as a result as justified by our government the kid has every right to believe on the basis of religious teachings alone. Noth that this is wrong but I think that critical thinking is a skill this nation has largely forgotten how to teach. <AT> TacticalAK47 (take this as an observation not a personal attack, for it is not meant as such) you are receiving flak not based on your beliefs as much as your inability to see outside of what has been told to you. This inherently makes you look less intelligent. The ability to test your beliefs against other common thoughts and directly deduce an opinion is what has gone suspiciously missing in your case. Many of the members of this forum are forward thinkers and are constantly testing what they know versus a new hypothesis, idea, way of thinking, ect... What you have essentially displayed here for everyone is that it is because it is. Think of it like asking a child why. The stereotypical answer is because. Your answer is essentially as such. In you case gay marriage shouldn't be allowed because the bible told you so. You have formed no direct reasoning within your belief system (as stated from the thread above) beyond because someone told you so. In this case if God told you to walk off a cliff or shoot yourself in the face, would you? Back to the issue... I'm curious if anyone can come up with a non-religious based reason to deny this right. If so I would loved to be enlightened.
  13. +1 to both of you guys. Another tidbit on the converse of kids shooting a burst of covering fire and then ducking down. Many new players who are a bit gung-ho will step completely out from cover to throw their plastic. Although the covering fire itself may be beneficial to the asset moving, often they do not realize that they are completely vulnerable themselves. Cover fire is only beneficial if you are alive to provide it. Also in general cover fire is often too non-specific. Being clear about where or whom you want your coverer to fire at is something that goes forgotten. Non-specific fire is useless, specifically in open areas where enemies are at a variety of angles. Although we have just 1 dedicated field out here everywhere we play in generally wide open. If you pop up and shoot blindly at whatever you see the chance of directly suppressing the enemy falls heavily. Needless to say there is a decent chance that you will be shot out from an unsuspected angle as stated above. This is not to say spray and pray isn't a legitimate tactic, but frequently cover fire is too non-specific. Its the little things that will make your movements more successful. Someone who has you pinned is much more likely to hit you than someone who has to adjust to your position and your movement both.
