I’ve started modding an M4A1 (Gen9) but I just wanted to be safe and check in with the pros to make sure I’m not going to learn something the hard and/or expensive way (Already watched the heck out of Low Guido’s channel… Even the stuff that isn’t relevant to me… He’s just so damn pleasant to listen to )
-Stock [Acrylic] Case (Recently ordered nylon case)
-Stock Cylinder & Head/Nozzle
-Stock Wiring (Added switch & diode for mag prime function)
+1.3 Unequal Spring
+Metal Gears (Waiting on shims to arrive)
+Blue Plunger with Metal Ladder (Using stock head piece though)
+33.5mm [Standard] Alloy Barrel (Stock T-piece)
+11.1v Battery (3S Charger/Checker included)
+Hopup (Inner barrel type)
+Unimportant Asthetic Changes (e.g. laser, torch, suppressor, paint, etc)
*Stock Motor won’t have enough juice for the spring?
*Stock Plunger/Cylinder Head(s) will break due to the spring?
*Bushings will wear out due to 11.1v Battery?
*Case will crack? (Soon to be solved by nylon case)
The reason I don’t mention the trigger failing and anything regarding MOSFETs is due to this: https://youtu.be/q8dnlz23-vY?t=3m3s
Please let me know if you have experienced otherwise (I know Airsoft is different in many aspects so, for gel blasters at least, things may not be as they were stated in the video)
Obviously, I will continue to upgrade the rest of the stock items down the track but I just wanted to know if what I have at this point in time will work and if it will be safe to use without expecting any drastic failures any time soon…
Let me know what you think
Thank you for your time!!
P.S - Since starting the upgrades, I haven’t test fired since I’ve been waiting for the shims so I don’t even know if I’ve already stuffed it or not
