First aid kit (for m4s)

Post by Magkill » Fri Jan 17, 2014 8:51 am

Me and my friend was thinking of getting one cause almost every one on our team has guns that have version 2 internals so I'm thinking this might be a good idea. I was looking for ananswer to is it good or not more the quality of the parts than anything else. Just a side note, our team has mostly vfc's, and some clone guns for back ups like dboys and jgs and a lot g&gs. would this be a good idea to get for our team?

Honestly...its a very bad idea. I see this as fleece the new player merchandise.

Are you getting parts that work "well" with your AEG? I highly doubt you are.
$110.00 for all these parts:

-Hard Carry Case
-Adjustment Lever Nut (3)
-Gear Box Screw (20)
-Hop-Up Assembly (1)
-Tappet Plate (2)
-Tappet Plate Spring (3)
-Wiring Harness (2)
-Cut-Off Lever (6)
-Selector Plate (3)
-Micro Switch (3)
-Piston (3)
-Piston Head (5)
-Piston Head O-Ring (10)
-Hop-Up Bucking (6)
-Motor (1)
-Bushing (10)
-Air Nozzle (5)
-Trigger Spring (5)
-Gear Set (3)
-Anti-Reversal Latch (3)
-Anti-Reversal Latch Spring (5)
-Cylinder Head (1)
-Trigger (1)
-Main Spring (3)
-Cylinder (1)

Really cheap parts with no details on specs or type...not a good thing.

It would better if you built a spare lower for eventual gun failure versus busting out spare parts and doing a tear-down in the field with "cheap" parts of unknow make, quality and spec.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

The General Consensus is 40% at wholesale to retail markets for small items. (Unlike clothes which have a 1000% mark-up.)

That means they got these sets for about 60.00 shipped...wholesale.

Consensus for wholesale goods is about 100% mark-up So...30.00 to put the sets together. Which all leads to...China....Element or APS...or some combination.

I find the micro switches the most amusing part of that kit.

That kit is specifically for the Elite Force ("Competition Series") M4 which is made by ARES. As such there are several parts in the kit that will be completely useless unless you have an ARES gun.

You'd be much better off sourcing the parts and building your own kit(s). You'll know exact what parts your getting and likely save money in the process. PLUS you won't be buying parts you can't use at all.
