Ok I calmded down now. Ill make this as detailed as possible.

 

Ok, I think I shaved the hole inside the gun what sucks up the bb's. Now its to short, and when I tried to do that triangle cut, I f***** up. I dunno what I did.. I really didn't understand but I was impatient.

 

My maker of my "knock-off" gun is BE or Both Elephant. And no this was not worth 10 bucks, or a knock off, or cheap, or w.e. Yall call it. It was my fault. The gun runs perfectly. Its just the hole inside the mag well what sucks the bb's up is 2 short. Can I fix this? Can I buy a new frame?

 

This gun is not a real xm8. Not the gws conv. Kit.

 

Please help contact on aim ... oaklandraider031

Thanks

 

Probably the SandSpyder XM8. No worries.

Yes it was the sandspyder. W.e. Is on shortyusa.com "no worries"?? U can help

"No worries" as in, "No worries, it's only $80 lost."

If it can't pick up BBs, you're screwdizzled.

Anyone know if the feeder is connected to the gun's frame? Maybe I can just buy the new part..

Does it come with a warranty, oh wait, it is probably void if you tried to upgrade it. Ummm....if you found a hard O-ring that is the right size, you might be able to glue it on or something. I don't own this gun, but I am just trying to give you ideas.

so basically, you broke off the feeder nozzle off of the hop up unit and now it isnt long enough to disengage the stopper at the top of the mags to let the bbs in.. maybe I you jb welded it and made it longer somehow? I would just buy another hopup unit and mod it..

to get a hicap to work you shave the hicap not the feeder tube on the gun

you were only supposed to shave 1mm of and the corner

 

 

well thanks camoman or w.e. his name is. he told me to leave the mag alone, and shave the tube inside the gun.. well ima put some o-ring inside or around the tube and hopefully that'll raise the height so it will feed..

No, you shave the feeder, thats exactly what the thread on Airsoft Retreat says.

Here. http://www.airsoftretreat.com/forums/topic...?TOPIC_ID=87937 go to page 2 in the middle and youll see he should have done it right. Also later in the topic they show the modified feeder.

It says its a feeder modification. Also scroll down the page to near the bottom and you see a picture of the mod which says "this is a pic of what the gun should look like when you are testing the TM mag mod. you can see that its just a bit off for proper feeding, youll have to correct that. bb's should shoot out of this hole when the mag is inserted if not you gotta take off more material. test fit without the body on and with hop up out of the gun. you don't want plastic shavings getting into the barrel."

 

Also you might be able to use clay on the feeder.

clay?? but ya I looked at the whole thread.. that picture what says that lil caption, looks like a mag to me. thats what I meant before.. its like shaved.. and a bb is inside a hole.. would o rings work though to try and fix the problem? maybe the thinkness of the ring could raise up the mag a lil bit?

P.S. raider510, making your first post readable, legable, and not in caps would have helped get better responses.

From what it looks like to me, the mag is underneith the magwell, and the feeder is part of the magwell.

I don't even get the whole picture. it basically looks like a separate mag.. just a ordinary mag what they shaved the circle where the spring pushed the bb up through. the mag well is what u insert the mag thru a gun, right? I just wanna make sure I got the definition of the mag well right. correct me if im wrong. I wonder if the GWS conversion kit will work with the BE xm8.. parts seem identical.. I just need the part what holds the motor... I personally held just the kit built together at airsoftextreme in oakland, I love the rubber and quality of the kit. no wonder its 250. yall think airsoft extreme can help me out??

Alright, alright....this is easily fixed.

 

Now, do you have the part you cut off? You can simply glue her back on with some super glue (the GOOD stuff).

 

If you don't try to cut a piece of plastic off something else to fit in there. Real simple, just TAKE your time. Be patient. Once you have it set, LET IT GO. Let it set up for at least a day.

 

It'll be alright, don't worry about it.
