[QUOTE=10050;34084621]Side updat: new mag changed nothing. Cleared the gun, put in mag, nothing shot. Took out the magazine and shot on semi three times, two bbs came out normally.[/QUOTE] Sounds like they're getting stuck in the barrel. I'd suggest checking to see if the bucking is properly lubricated and aligned.
or be like wally and get some from a sex shop ;)
[QUOTE=the_killer24;34084778]just because it's in a special bottle labeled with an airsoft company's name doesn't make it any less of silicone spray than a bottle of stuff you get at a hardware store[/QUOTE] BAHAHAHA, no.
[QUOTE=catbarf;34084789]Sounds like they're getting stuck in the barrel. I'd suggest checking to see if the bucking is properly lubricated and aligned.[/QUOTE] How would I go about doing that?
[QUOTE=10050;34084854]How would I go about doing that?[/QUOTE] Unjam the barrel, lube the inside, and repeat if necessary.
[QUOTE=10050;34084854]How would I go about doing that?[/QUOTE] Fire a few shots, when it stops feeding, take out the magazine. Disassemble the gun, remove the barrel. If the barrel's clogged up with several BBs you'll know the problem. Otherwise apply a bit of lube to the bucking and slide it back into the hop-up.
Okay, did more testing. Loaded mag with 50 rounds. Ten shots, then nothing. Took out mag, caught falling bbs. Tried firing, nothing. Used rod, one bb came out. Reinserted mag and the whole proceess repeated until, I fired or dropped all fifty shots. So my gun gets a jam every ten rounds or so. Does that mean I just need to lube the hopup or is there a more serious problem?

what kind of bb's are you using (brand, weight) see if they have any obvious defects like bumps
Goldenball .25g bio bbs
if you have any other bb's around try them
Okay, I dug the shitty .20 g Baggie of bbs that I should never use out of the garbage. Forty rounds. Shot a bunch on semi, then the gun locked up and the trigger wouldn't move. Removed mag, cleared gun with rod. Tried to shoot, still locked up. I switched to full auto and it burned through the rest of the magazine (at least 20 rounds) like a champ. So ATM the bbs that came with the gun have worked better than the ones I bought. Does that mean I can't run .25 ammo or is bio more unreliable than normal?
If you don't pull the trigger and keep it held down for an entire cycle on semi-auto, it will lock up and you need to switch to auto to clear it. And always use semi at the end of the day to reset the spring position.

So the problem is my ammo then? Because the .20 cycled fine besides my user error.
Hmm, it should cycle .25's just fine, and Goldenballs always work well for me. It might just be the fact that they're bio bb's.
[QUOTE=notrabies;34086368]Hmm, it should cycle .25's just fine, and Goldenballs always work well for me. It might just be the fact that they're bio bb's.[/QUOTE] Im going to go fill two magazines, one with .20 the other with .25. I'll start with the .2 and see how it runs compared to the .25 RESULTS: The .2 ran flawlessly and put a huge fucking grin on my face. The .25 jamed on the sixth shot, then again after I cleared it. So I guess it's the ammo.
Yeah, don't use Bios
That pisses me off. They work fine in my springers, so I guess I won't need to get ammo for those like I was expecting. I'll just save and pick up some .20 later on. But is them being bio bbs really the problem? I was hoping to bring my gun over to one of my uncle's houses and do some shooting in his huge backyard.
the weight isnt the issue, its the quality (or lack there of) of the bio degradable bbs. I would recommend getting regular high quality polished .25 for your gun. Maybe even .28s.

I usually roll with G&G .25s or ASGI G4 .25s.
What is the advantage of .25 BB's over .20? How is the quality of TSD BB's? Amazon's selling some TSD.20 for 14 bucks, free shipping, and if the only downside is range, my gun will probably never see ranges beyond fifty feet anyway without bio-bb's.
.25s move slower but will have (slightly) longer range/will be affected less by wind [editline]6th January 2012[/editline] not to say that using a .40 gram BB will go really far but move very slowly, if it's too heavy it'll just drop
its like the difference between throwing a tennis ball and throwing a base ball.
what kind of helmet does the bf3 assault kit use? Also, is it ok to put evil capitalist molle gear on glorius russian partizan in the case of said loadout?

How is TSD quality wise?
No experience with TSD, but to me BBs are BBs. I don't think there's gonna be much of a difference if I switch from ASGI G4s to TSDs to ICSs. I probably shouldn't be saying that since I've only tried 2 different brands. Are the TSDs your only choice?
[QUOTE=10050;34088025]So in a windless CQC environment five grams doesn't mean much. How is TSD quality wise?[/QUOTE] TSD pretty much makes the best bbs ever (excluding extra expensive sniper boolets, of course).
[QUOTE=10050;34088025]So in a windless CQC environment five grams doesn't mean much. How is TSD quality wise?[/QUOTE] 5 grams would make a gigantic difference. .05 grams in an indoor CQB environment won't.
[QUOTE=cardfan212;34088154]5 grams would make a gigantic difference. .05 grams in an indoor CQB environment won't.[/QUOTE] My mistake. Okay, .20 TSD it is, thanks guys. Glad I could get the whole issue sorted out in a timely matter. I was really freaked out about my gun and glad it was a 15 dollar mistake and not one that would require tinkering with my brand-fucking-new gun. Edit: um, any reason to pick black bb's over white besides visibility in flight? the Black ones are a tad cheaper (same seller).
[QUOTE=10050;34088025]So in a windless CQC environment five grams doesn't mean much. How is TSD quality wise?[/QUOTE] In CQC it won't matter, but it's not just wind- see, the BBs are the same size, so the force of air resistance is the same, but because one BB is heavier, it doesn't get slowed down as quickly by the wind. So while both BBs have the same amount of energy, the heavier one preserves its energy longer, and so at long range will have a higher speed than the .2 that has been heavily decelerated. Edit: I only use white BBs, seeing where your pellets go is essential for walking your fire onto a target.
