I don't know how to do any of that :/ Again, though, is [url]http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__11060__HobbyKing_ECO6_50W_5A_Balancer_Charger_w_accessories.html[/url] a good charger that would work with a 7.4 lipo? Also, should I ge one of those devices that beeps when my charge drops?
That charger is decent, but look for an imax one, those are really good. A lipo alarm is an ok purchase but a lot of times they malfunction, so whenever you notice trigger response lagging or a drop in rof, you know it is time to switch it out for another.

I have some nimh batteries I think are fully charged but I am not sure, haven't used them in about a week. Will hooking them up to a generic smart charger overcharge them if they are 100% charged?
Probably, because shit smart chargers use the battery's temperature to regulate how much it's charged
[QUOTE=felix the cat;35036354]It should twist to lock back together[/QUOTE] It turns out, it broke into three pieces and the bit of the cap that was supposed to lock it into place broke off. Is it possible to get the wires replaced so I can get a normal fuse case with it?
I'm looking at maybe investing eventually in a airsoft LMG, what way do they operate? Battery?
Battery, Gas, Air (Classic Guns) Your choice really, The most convient is battery, Classic guns are more convient then gas.
How is the CYMA MK5 compared to a Galaxy brand with a metal body installed?
What is an acceptable grouping on semi auto at 70 feet (assuming a well placed shot while standing ect.)? I'm getting about 3-4 inch groupings if I had to guess. How much total effective range should this net? My Systema bucking got damaged/worn or something and this is what another bucking raided off another gun is doing. I urgently need to know if this is even remotely near acceptable for field play, as this will determine whether my next game is CQB or not.

I urgently need to know if this is even remotely near acceptable for field play, as this will determine whether my next game is CQB or not.[/QUOTE] Uhh, groupings aren't really important. Accuracy by volume is the best solution most of the time. Odds are that people won't call your hits from long range anyways, so whether you play outside or not, treat it like you're playing CQB. Get as close as possible and lay down large amounts of fire, and whatever you do don't stand still.
I'm pretty much on semi-only all the time, due to rules or just out of fear of my lipo causing my gun to go boom sooner. Suppose I have no option to get closer without being hit easily? The Saturday game is at a field with lots of open areas. Somehow it's shooting slightly better than my CA sportline which, for all it's faults, has very impressive stock range...do I need that little black clip thing that goes over the barrel on the hop up unit? It blocks my hop up unit from being pushed all the way into place now, though the whole assembly will fit just fine without it.
That clip prevents the barrel from twisting, so its pretty important. Your bucking might be a bit long and interfering with its fit. The best way to get close is to do what people don't expect, the obvious. People aren't really prepared for runners, and few people can compensate properly, especially when you're on semi. All those DMR's will fail when you start running, trust me, for all my love of my SVD, its not that useful against sprinters. Running parallel to their lines and flanking is very handy, if possible move in a slow quarter circle. Run parallel to them but move slightly closer as you go. Most importantly, find any bits of cover you can and make them landmarks. A 2 foot deep trench is not bad at all. Most importantly, when you're running, the pressure's off your team so they'll be able to fire with ease. (whether they do or not is a different story) Also, try to get someone to run with you, at my last outdoor op, I led a charge which evened the entire field when 10-15 people stuck with me. Keep in mind, I'm doing this with a pistol and my MP5K, so there's not much accuracy going on, I just put people's heads down until I'm close enough to hit them. I used to do the same thing with my MAC-11, because that thing was really good at scaring people into cover, but I missed having lots of ammo. The best advice I can give is to just go through with it. Sometimes you'll get shot and accomplish nothing, but more often than not you can really mess with people. [editline]9th March 2012[/editline] If there's no way to get closer, than do it anyways. There's always a backdoor somewhere.
i can confirm that when you run, you are nearly invincible.
I know exactly what you mean by strafing = foil anything, even while moving slowly it seems to effectively make me impossible to hit. For additional reference, these two albums give some good reference to what I'll be in: [URL="http://www.bakholdinphotography.com/Airsoft/Winery-102911/19808073_48Lm8V#!i=1556923892&k=HVq4KC8"]http://www.bakholdinphotography.com/Airsoft/Winery-102911/19808073_48Lm8V#!i=1556923892&k=HVq4KC8[/URL] [URL="http://www.bakholdinphotography.com/Airsoft/Winery-121909/10741311_mpjcb2#!i=748553145&k=Tjiec"]http://www.bakholdinphotography.com/Airsoft/Winery-121909/10741311_mpjcb2#!i=748553145&k=Tjiec[/URL] (the first album is more accurate to what it looks like now, occasionally the mounds are moved, the bushes once got burned down by a pyro test and have since grown back, ect.) I switched barrels (was using the stock VFC one, now back to my madbull barrel) and the clip is working again. After a cleaning + lubing I'm shooting right again, seemingly, but I still seem to remember my gun shooting like a laser before. Anything I should do to maximize my range? New bucking/nub suggestions, ect.?
Field pics are very handy, looks like you've got an easier time than I was expecting, although none of the pictures give a me a real idea of the scale of the place. Not sure if this link will work, but this looks pretty ideal for running in: [url]http://www.bakholdinphotography.com/Airsoft/Winery-121909/10741311_mpjcb2#!i=748597649&k=gj3ps&lb=1&s=L[/url] If your other bucking is broken, replace it with the same kind if you can. There aren't any free/short term solutions for accuracy past what you've done. Just make sure the barrel is perfectly straight up so you're getting a minimum of fliers and that's all I can tell you. Look into one of the fancy cool things like flat and r hops when you have time and consider doing one of those. I know that evetunally I'm gonna get a TK twist barrel in my MP5K (If I can ever find one in stock) and that'll really help me throw down on some people. In fact, if you wanted, I'd consider letting you borrow my MP5K sometime so you could try it out before you buy one.
Right now, if you're willing to crouch/go prone it's not too hard to avoid being hit simply due to the all the bushes. How perfectly straight up should it be? I still get fliers frequently, say every 5th shot, which veer off and miss the spot I'm aiming at by a good foot and some change. When putting the barrel in, I aligned the groove thingy as straight up as I could, though it might be off just a hair. Is that enough to be causing problems?
Since my KWA SR-7 is being redone, I might look into the R-hop. Y/N for a KWA? I figured i'd want to get as much range and accuracy out of it as possible.

Barrel alignment doesn't cause fliers, but it makes them more severe them by adding a left/right component to them. If your fliers aren't consistently to one direction, your barrel is probably not the issue. You should probably just look up a hop-up guide on a more comprehensive site so you can really figure things out for yourself. Most of my knowledge is just trial and error.

I figured i'd want to get as much range and accuracy out of it as possible.[/QUOTE] I mean I guess, depends on your cash and stuff. It couldn't hurt if you keep all your old components.
Well, I had to replace the pistonshit anyway, and I have a little bit of cash I was going to spend on a new bucking, think it'd be worth it? The reason I ask for the KWA is because I just realized that the KWA has a weird hopup or whatever :v:
I mean if you want, you could. But more importantly you could be saving for my G36, since you're no longer the only one who wants to buy it.
Yeah, don't worry i'm still saving, if he gives you a better offer though I wouldn't feel bad or anything if you ended up selling it to him. I think I remember reading a post that you were hurting for cash or something so if he has the cash before me, then it's all up to you. I still want it but if you need the cash badly/get a better deal go for it
I'm way cool on cash now, but I'm trying to buy lots of stuff before Pine Plains, and my Camaro is really starting to need a few things. And while I could spend my dosh a million smarter ways, I really want that Yuji SPAS-12. [editline]9th March 2012[/editline] Like real bad.
I've always wanted a SPAS-12, considered buying the KTW (folding stock on a SPAS-12 sexsexsex) since it's a bit cheaper than the TM and it has a folding stock that can actually be found for it. I think it'd be cool to own an Asahi M60 one day.
The fact that this video exists means I will never have a full wallet: [video=youtube;E_BQBhJx3qk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_BQBhJx3qk[/video]
is that a M1100?????????????
I watched the SPAS-12 video and now I need new pants.

They seem to be fairly random in which direction they go, and some are worse than others.

[QUOTE=DarkSamus;35069735]It's curious that they went with the model that has the "Lever" style safety, since that one is well known to be incredibly dangerous and unreliable.[/QUOTE] Maybe Tokyo Marui hates safety? It might be because the later models didn't use the folding stock so they went with the classic. All I do know is that the video is a Maruzen M1100 reworked into a TM SPAS, and that the externals are basically left alone.
