WTB: MC51 / G3 Parts

I'm looking for parts (or parts guns) for MC51/ G3. Primarily, I'm looking for cocking tube &/or charging handle assembly. Receiver pins, mags (NO HI-CAPS), & low-profile optic mount as well.

Also looking for a RIS/RAS that will fit an MP5SD series.

LMK if you have what I need.

Re: G&G vs. Combat Machine

G&G makes the "combat machine" line. It's basically G&G's "sportline" version of their guns.
However, UNLIKE pretty much everyone else's "sportline" guns G&G actually still uses pretty decent internals, and their plastic externals are better than those of most other companies.

Re: King Arms M4 derpity derp

The King Arms poly bodies should not need to be modified. The factory assembled gun run a one piece hop up.
That said, they can be picky about going together. It usually requires some wiggling &/or a slight retraction of the charging handle.

Re: Stick battery haters

For some guns you HAVE to run a stick battery (mostly with folder AKs). For most guns you CAN'T run one, as they simply won't fit.
They're kind of a PITA to carry extra(s) on field with you and they can easily get damaged if you're not super careful with how you store & transport them.

If so, with some springs it will cause exactly what you're describing. The spring will fully compress before the sector gear can release the piston, thus completely locking the gearbox.
