    THE TM MWS thread

    I was thinking of sticking with the original barrel as the TM barrels are pretty good. Either that or an edgi/pdi barrel as replacement but I don't think I'll be doing much with the orga stuff. Has anyone tried the "Super" buckings by maple leaf?

    Does it have a special mound on the inside? I was fully expecting the maple leaf's to kill it with range and accuracy so was suprised that they didn't perform very well on the posts in this thread.

    Just ordered that SixG nub but I'm trying to track down the modify tan buckings? Can you only get them abroad? Also, I saw a video on someone with the same issue of bb's getting stuck in the magazine and apparently you have to take a file to a couple spots but they didn't explain it very well so lets hope I don't go and **** it.

    I was using devil blaster bb's.Do you think buying silent fill valves will stop the splurting of freezing liquid? 😂

    THE TM MWS thread

    Hi Guys, I bought one of these sexy things and tried it for the first time at a skirmish today. Oh ma dayum this thing is the best thing I've owned period. It's damn accurate as well as easily overhops 0.28's which i was surprised with tbh but I've never seen a gbbr as accurate as this thing. The shots really get out there too. I just ran into a couple of minor problems. When I'm filling mags I felt like to get through a whole mag I would have to "overfill" all the mags until liquid started spewing out of the magazines. Definitely gonna hit up the green gas mod but also, has anyone had any issues with bb's getting stuck in the magazine? I might be overfilling so the spring is snagging at a certain point but it happened a couple of times today and the mags should be clean, being new mags n all.

    Super Cheap Bolt Action

    This advert is COMPLETED!

    • For sale
    • Used

    So I have for sale a bolt action sniper. No idea the make. It's been sprayed olive but the two tone is showing so it needs a paint job. It does shoot. I think it needs a new mag or something though as the mag that comes with it pushes too many bb's into the chamber most of the time and you get double feeds. Probably the stopper that is holding the bbs in the magazine is worn out. No idea what fps it is shooting although I think it's like 400fps. I don't think the hop up works. Guys it's a steal for a reason. It needs some work. You pay postage. It has a rail to mount scopes onto.

    Some help with a KWA RM4 Ronin

    I took apart my one last night and put it back together, what are you getting stuck on? Use some needle nose pliers and poke it into the end of the buffer tube holes diagonally and twist to loosen it off and open it. Take out everything inside all the way up to the spring inside the gearbox. Then unscrew bottom of the buffer tube rail holding the wiring and unclip the connectors near the castle nut. You do not need to take the whole buffer tube off. Unscrew the pistol grip as normal. Leave the mag release in and leave the bolt catch in, you do not need to take these out. To split the receivers, pop the front pin and pull the charging handle slightly. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE FAKE BOLT AS IT IS MADE OF CHEESE and the dust cover usually snags on the front body pin so lift it up when taking receiver off. The screws are torx although I have rm4a1 gen 3 and am not sure if ronin is exactly the same with only slight differences but on mine they are torx. Pop the trigger pin and pop the rear body pin and she should wiggle loose and then the gearbox. There is only one small phillips screw that you need to remove that is really obvious as the piece that the screw is holding is covering one of the screws right by where the trigger assembly is in the corner. There is a little spring underneath the latch so take care to know which direction it was facing otherwise worst case you will have to guess a couple times but when you reasseble the latch, it should want to stay down and keep moving down towards the motor when you lift it up. Pop all the normal gearbox screws and remove the warranty sticker and that's it. Actually easier than a normal v2 in my opinion. However, like a muppet I pulled on a wire a little too hard and the wire actually snapped so be careful otherwise you will be soldering joints for an hour. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN ANYTHING. The screws and nuts will stop moving when they are tight enough, especially the buffer tube end plate, it will just stop, don't tighten it anymore.
  10. I really appreciate the help guys. I know jcheeseright has worked on a number of TM Recoil Shocks and tbh I'm at the point in airsoft where I am not as fussed with performance and just want the thing to work, have a decent fps so I can use heavier ammo and have an acceptable trigger response so that I wont lockup every 5 seconds when I spam the trigger which doesn't happen to me on the 416 as long as I pull the trigger all the way through and let it fully reset as well. I will follow your advice and purchase an M100 spring and I might chuck a cheeky flat nub in there and a prommy purple + AOE correction because I suppose it can only help but that is all. Hopefully it will last me for a while and if anything fails, I'll just upgrade it as I go when replacing what's broken. Thanks guys.
  11. So after a lot of research, I've seen many people talk about this and that when it comes to upgrading the recoil shocks and I just want a straight answer from someone that owns one. I do not really care about upgrading trigger response and such because I believe it is perfectly adequate and am waiting for the Gate Titan NGRS release later on this year and maybe early next but until then I can wait. What I want, is to upgrade the fps and accuracy/range but keep or improve the notorious reliability of this HK416 Delta/all tm rs. This is where I come to a crossroads, what exactly do I need to do to keep this thing running well for years. I just want around 340fps or slightly under. Is the PDI 6.05 barrel better in terms of accuracy than the prommy 6.03 and if possible, how can I get hold of an EDGI barrel? Do I need to 100% replace the bushings and which ones should I go with? Does the spring guide need replacing? Does the nozzle have an o-ring in it and is it worth upgrading to create a better air seal for better fps variation? Are the gears needing to be replaced? Should I correct AOE? I have airlab sorbo/neoprene pads handy Is it worth reshimming? Sounds pretty good already to me but up for anything I'm looking to flat hop the bucking and add a firefly nub, should I stick with the TM bucking to flat hop or get the prommy purple/maple leaf one? I've been using the facebook tm recoil page for ages and reddit scouring it trying to find solid decisions and everyone has got a different opinion so I thought I'd just make a post to just get a straight answer for once. Thanks.
  12. Nothing has been changed internally except an m120 spring cut down to make fps a hair under 350 and externals have been changed Only thing i think it could be which is what I'm asking about is the pts epg-c grip. I have read posts stating that the wires have to be routed a certain way otherwise the grip angle will be off and thus the motor misaligned. My question is, can this place excess stress on the piston to cause it to fail so quickly. Furthermore the gun is being run on an 11.1v 25c lipo and seemed to die incredibly quickly the second i switched to full auto so to me it sounds like pme. Is this a possibility with only roughly 26-28 rps going through it if that. On this recoil system, is installing a swiss cheesed piston going to be a bad idea due to the extra stress on the piston in order to pull the recoil weight and spring. I just think a Swissed shs piston with AOE corrected may do the trick but no idea if it'll hold up under all that. The kwa piston has been ripped to pieces twice now though and I'm just looking for solutions. Yes, I have sent it back for repair with the same thing happen again in under 500 shots the time after and the guy is sending me a whole new gearbox but i want to make sure the same thing isnt going to happen here and also want to understand what is going wrong Thanks

    London People!

    If you live in London, it isn't that far from The Mall so I would try that. Depending on what side of London you live of course. There is the Bunker 51 site but never been and not many others nearer the centre.

    TM 416D Does it need upgrades?

    Kind of a longshot but do you know how often they come back in stock? I heard someone say they come in stock once a year or something like that. Also, what about the shimming and how does that come out of the box? Does increasing the fps to 330ish really have that much of a reliability hit? I have used a low fps gun before for a while and I saw a massive improvement when I increased my fps by about 40 in being able to hit moving targets much more easily instead of having this stupidly long lead over the guy and my range increased a bit too. I started being able to use heavier bb's as well. I'm definitely not disregarding your advice at all but just curious if I can get away with upping that fps or does it really impede it by such an amount that I should stay away?
  15. Okay so at the end of the month, I'm splashing the f*ck out on TM goodness with the 416 CAG style gun from fire support with mags and sights and all sorts of sh*t I'm going to regret in the near future financially XD. Now my question is does it need any upgrades or anything done to it? At the moment I'm thinking an fps upgrade which fire support do offer which saves me doing it, however they want to replace the gears with Lonex ones as well which share the same ratio so the only thing I can see improving is the longevity but is changing the gears even necessary? Should I get the AOE corrected when it fires at such a low ROF? Should I get it rewired because apparently the resistance is very high? Should I have the bushings replaced for steel bushings? I would imagine nothing would be wrong with the piston and yet I see people changing the piston head over for a Lonex POM one. I can't find a BTC next gen spectre in stock anywhere. Basically, there are a lot of different views out there on the internet and a lot of conflicting advice and I am just wondering what the best way to tackle these possible issues are as after using something that performed amazingly but kept going down during the game, I just want something that will work and not crap out on me in 6 months. Just need a clear cut answer as to which is the best route to take. Thanks Guys.
