  1. I love hearing about oldschool guns being rediscovered by former players, then being brought back "into service." Let me see if I can answer some of your questions. You can install a one-piece outer barrel if you want. It should help reduce any barrel wobble you may notice. A metal upper would also help, although not as much as a one-piece outer barrel. I would leave the stock inner barrel and hopup alone, at least for now. You don't want to release the magical TM fairies by opening these parts up. With the advent of LiPO batteries nowadays, you might want to consider buying a 7.4V (2 cell) LiPO instead of an older NiCad/NiMH brick. Check hobbyking.com for some killer deals. You will need a LiPO-specific charger to juice these batteries up. There are a couple different models of battery boxes with integrated lasers available. If you decide to go the LiPO route, you can get away with a PEQ-15 vice the older/larger PEQ-2. G&G makes 1:1 M4 magazines nowadays as well. Bear in mind that they're a tight fit with some M4 receivers, specifically KWA. Welcome back, and good luck with your setup!
  2. If you're looking for something strictly for target practice, I would recommend a spring-powered rifle in order to keep running costs down. Which particular spring rifle is up to your preference.
  3. Cyma AKs are renown for their ruggedness, not to mention their quality at a great price point. If I was in the market for an AK, I'd buy an LCT. If it had to be reasonably priced, I would get a Cyma.
  4. This might shoot a bit hot out of the box, but it'll serve you well. https://www.evike.com/products/42744/
  5. That's a pretty solid choice for a beginner's rifle. Since you have a decent budget, I'd personally opt for a VFC Avalon or Krytac rifle, with my preference leaning towards the latter.
  6. It's a great time, man. I've been playing for just over 15 years. The thing that keeps me interested isn't the guns, the gear, or even improving skillsets and winning games. It's the people I've met along the way. Get out there and have fun!
  7. It's likely possible to thread your outer barrel, but it would probably be easier to purchase a replacement outer barrel with threads. That is assuming that your gun has aftermarket outer barrels available.
  8. When I first started back in 2004, my parents were against airsoft too. If you show them that you're responsible, they just might change their minds. That did the trick for me.
  9. This video shows how the front end goes together. Hopefully it'll help you reassemble your gun.
  10. I'll be honest, I'd return your gun if you can. If you're comfortable working on it, have a look at your trigger contacts and motor.

  12. I'm not intimately familiar with the Combat Machine front end assembly, so I'm afraid I won't be much help there. For what it's worth, though... My local field uses Combat Machines as rental guns. Nary a weekend goes by without someone experiencing the exact issue you're describing. I doubt it's a show-stopping issue, barring any damage done to the inner barrel.
  13. You could have a torn or unseated hopup bucking. If you aren't comfortable trying to fix it yourself, I recommend returning it.
