Gearbox Front Wires Replacement

Whilst tinkering with my gun (G&G CM16) to install a RIS and setup a PEQ box I have managed to damage the wires to the point where they are cut open. I've been trying to find replacement but I am having a bit of rough time. Could I get some links to some good replacement cables?

Get yourself a soldering iron and fix them yourself.  It's easier than it looks.  Plus when you break another wire (you will) you can fix that as well 🙂  I find soldering quite therapeutic.

as above, soldering iron is a valuable tool to have. doesn't even need to be a fancy one i'm still rocking the one i got with a real robots magazine subscription.

When you say "cut open" do you mean just the rubber/plastic insulation or is the wire itself broken?

 

If it's just the insulation then, if there are spade connectors further along that you can disconnect (my G&G has them), you can slide some heat shrink over it, apply heat and away you go?

 

On soldering irons, still got mine from my electronic degree days, plus another three, including a portable butane powered one, very handy when out and about.

Thanks for the advice so far. Instead of trying to explain the exact state of the wires I will just drop in pictures.

By the looks of it you could get away with carefully trimming the insulation (bits that are stuck out) and cover it with a layer or two of heat shrink, otherwise you're looking at cutting/soldering or picking up some 3mm spade connectors and crimping them on to link the instead.

 

If it's pretty standard and not running 11.1v Lipos then you should be okay.
