    Makes me feel a little better about having a go. The receiver I was looking at (G&P) comes complete with a gearbox & motor so that should take away a least a little bit of the frustration I would guess. What did you go for in the way of Hopunit? Anything special or just like a madbull or something?

    ^ That looks really smart. What was your experience of pulling it together from a pile of parts?

    I did read that but there's conflicting information depending on where you look. Some say newer parts are the more common TM type thread, older information seems to say its different. Would be hit and miss i suppose.

    All good advice, and i definitely wouldnt consider tearing apart an AEG is it was the only one that I had. Cash wise its not so much an issue, if i need to wait till payday for parts ill wait. I dont want to rush it anyway - also i find that makes you spend more time researching parts and threads from forums. I really did want to try and build something from scratch but i think for now building from a solid base makes sense until i've got my head a little more around the tech part. Just get stuck in and tinker i suppose is the best way forward.

    A lot of food for thought... i really want to build something that is "my own" but looking at the advice here it would be easier to buy a base and then customise...

    Thanks Sitting Duck. I've had a play around with a couple of boneyard guns to get used to opening up and rebuilding gearboxes etc. and they were ok if not a little fiddly to reassemble with my sausage fingers... but that said they worked. My main reason for looking for building up new from parts was because with a boneyard AEG you think youve nailed it then something else wears out etc.etc. so i thought in the long run it would be cheaper. And it would mean i wasnt tearing up something that was brand new from the box and maybe causing more problems than i solved. But it does seem like the general consensus on approach is to buy something stock and then swap for aftermarket\upgrade parts rather than anything from scratch.

    Are they really that fragile?

    Ill have a good look around tonight. Cost wise its not so much of a problem, its not like i need it built and done in the next 5 minutes so there's time for shopping around, importing etc. as i go along. My main reason for looking at that G&P receiver set was that it came complete with a lot of bits where you're not going to have issues. But if its just as simple to get a receiver and add a different, perhaps higher spec gearbox then that'd be a route i'd go as well. I suppose i was thinking this would avoid a few headaches. Ill investigate Krytacs a bit more as well - ive not looked at them at all if i am honest.

    From what i've read it's an M120 spring as well which would need to be dialed down a bit to keep it site legal in most places. Reviews are OK but one or two complaints about the piston teeth being stripped but that was from the USA and no detail as to what they were running along with it. They have them listed on Evike - the information is a bit more detailed there. Aside from that the reviews are positive about the quality etc. I've been trying to find threads where someone has used it as a base to build from but as yet ive not found anything particularly useful.

    Thanks for the input, so with the receiver set that i linked in my other post that includes a grip, motor, gearbox, receiver so all that really needs to be added is a hop, inner barrel, outer barrel & stock... so from the perspective it is a little more straight forward than trying to cobble together random parts? Or am I underestimating it? I would have thought that getting a compatible outer barrel, inner barrel and hop unit would be relatively simple?

    So you're saying that a G&P receiver would be best used only in conjunction with other G&P parts, like outer barrel, stock etc? This is the receiver set i was looking at and because of what it includes i thought that it could be a good base to start from and avoid some of the compatibility issues between different receivers and gearboxes? http://airsoftzone.co.uk/parts/receivers/m4-m16-seal-skull-metal-body-pro-kit-black-gnp
  12. Hi All, This has probably been covered a couple of times but I haven't been able to find anything in search (i could be searching for the wrong keywords, who knows). Basically I was looking at building a custom gun from new parts just as a bit of fun. I know its probably cheaper to buy one build already but where is the fun in that? I saw online a G&P Receiver Set (metal body, gearbox motor etc. all included) and it looked like a solid base to work from and would only need, hop, barrel, outer barrel and stock to be added to it to make it complete. Any thoughts on these? Experiences? Advice?

    Cool, might give them a ring about it. See if there is any left.
