Re: What Mp7 should I get

WE is making one called the SMG8. I don't know how it will do, or if it is a HK3 production, but most of WE rifles, at least, do decently stock, but will need some tuning to get working well. But the only draw of WE is getting a platform to work on for cheap. It appears to cost $140. Gasguns.info th...

Re: What c rating should I get for my lipo?

I've always read to get as high of a C rating as you can. A good analogy compares the C rating to a water reservoir: the voltage is the capacity, the amperage is the size of holes that let water flow, and the C rating is simply the flow rate. According to people smarter than me :) , the motor will t...

Pretty much, the sears are the things that catch the piston so that it doesn't move while the spring guide is being pushed (compressed) towards it. Then, while pushing the "bolt" into battery, the piston is supposed to be kept in place by the trigger sears. Because yours are not holding the piston p...
