Done with M4s

Post by R3Monarch on Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:03 am

yea i'm done with M4s. I'm so sick and fucking tired of them breaking on me and my friends and fellow team members.

I may invest in an LM4 once I get more work, but I could also go the M249 route

I need your votes, Ricochet.

Do you want me to stay as a rifleman or invest in a machine gun (I'm starting some well paying under the table work soon and i'll be raking in $$$)

LM4 w/ 10 mags

or

M249 Para

David will be keeping his m4 looks like it is back up and running. I think jake taking it apart internally knocked some crap around inside. The issues isn't about m4's breaking, any style weapon can fault easily. As far as the lm4 goes expect 3 things. Pricey mags that leak, horrible hop up, and an ok inner barrel. Expect repair on your mags, lots of maintenance to keep it in functioning shape (thankfully its an easy to clean gun) and to invest in a better hop up and barrel.

I own both g&p weapons with similar internals and the lm4. G&p is better.

alot of gun breaks where it instantaneously stops working are really simple fixes, so keep your head up! lol

also, a bit of advice on aeg dismantling.

if it aint broke...

dont try to fix it...

idk how many times i've seen people take apart their guns for no reason other than to take a look, and only end up damaging it in the process.

it wont even fire now.
and yeah i know its fixable, but its the money that matters. im done spending more money on this gun. i think i might be just done with airsoft as a whole. its money consuming and i can barely go as it is. and my car sounds like its about to die.

damn bro, yeah it is an expensive hobby. if anything though, investing in a new gun cant hurt in the long run. if you can afford it of course

one question.

When it is all plugged up and you pull the trigger, does it make any noise? as in grinding, whining, or popping?

I am sorry bro. I have been seeing some bad luck lately with aeg's. usually aeg's are more complex maintenance but it needs to be done less often and are more reliable platform. Keep your head up man. Who did the fix? Dom pretty much summed it.

when it first started, it was making a winding up noise that you would hear when you play with a power drill. and now it doesnt make any sound, nor does it shoot. battery is fully recharged.

yeaah Tech, its whatevers, i might just go play with you guys daul weilding my m9s

also if anyone wants to pop open my gun and see whats wrong with it, be my guest.

although it is my favorite gun.
before it broke it shot out bbs like it was a LMG. maybe faster. lets just say i wouldnt want to be at the other end my M4. but its too bad i wont be able to use it in awhile.

i love everything about it but just the gears are to weak and idk if the piston stripped again or not. idk what can work with this gearbox i have.

well, you would of know if your piston stripped, because the gears would still spin, or they would make one hell of a racket.

to me it sounds like something is either up with the wiring, or the motor.

however, with the motor whining like you said it did, it very possibly could be that the gearbox locked up, and you trying to fire it burned out the motor.

which brings me to my next question, does the gun smell like something burning? or like shit at all lol?

Sounds about right to me. Just FYI if your g&p has a m120 to feel warmth in the grip is normal. All my g&p's do it, m120 is a very high speed motor.

Many people quit Paintball because they buy a $1200 speedball marker and try to take it apart first thing. It can get bad (screwed fcs/lines/eyes in a fast marker can mean a broken gun).

Hell, I have no intention of taking apart my gun without you doing it for me xD

ok cool, i didnt know you had a G&P. they are relatively bomb proof, but tend to be a bit emotional sometimes.

yeah man, sometimes i dont understand why people take apart their guns when they are working perfectly. i guess people dont realize how fragile the internals can be. . .

yeaah lol
i love the way the gun fires on auto but thats how it broke on me. semi gets jammed every five to seven shots.
not to mentioned how it sounded like after my last auto fire.

my gun sounded like the last few seconds.
it was faster than this ics m4 in the video.
