    Guys, i've taken matters into my own hands and i'm scavenging parts from my MP5(such as the bucking) to fix my SCAR but i hit a road block. See, the original problem i had with my SCAR was that the hop-up nub wasn't extending down far enough, so i tried disengaging the hop-up gears to push the thing down all the way but all the way is too short. We determined that the spring inside the hop-up is keeping it too high but from the looks of it even removing that wouldn't do much. I'm really not sure what to do. Any ideas that DOESN'T require me to buy anything?

    Cannibalise the hopup from a similar gun?

    Sand down the parts of the hopup so that they work properly.

    Last resort of course, I'd sooner buy a replacement hopup.

    I think the CM031 has a plastic receiver (correct me if I'm wrong). The M14s are good from what I've heard, but get the fake wood one.

    Why the fake wood one? Personally I like the OD better.

    Also, The CM031 description says
    This rifle is sturdily constructed with a metal barrel assembly, metal receiver cover, and metal trigger assembly.

    Just a durable close-mid range gun.

    It says receiver cover, not the whole receiver.

    M14 is not good for CQB. A SOC16 wouldn't be too bad though.

    Full metal, should be similar, $133 but without full stock.

    The other one might be better for you as long as you don't mind the non-metal parts.

    If you could pay a bit more I'd get a d'boys or newer cyma model. I just bought this:

    those lower number cyma's aren't nearly as good. You also don't really need more than one high cap imo.

    If anyone's seen the Tan D Boys SCAR-H anywhere in stock it'd be helpful, only place that seems to have it is weapon blender but it's expensive there.

    Depending on where you are, You could give your local retailers a shot, but otherwise I would say to just have ASGI notify you.

    Also just ordered the ak74.

    No real local retailers (mostly cheap general sports store shit) but yeah I have them on notification.

    Really should just be patient, I suppose.

    It's a company that makes tacticool polymer AR (mostly) accessories.

    Their name comes from their first product, which are sleeves you put on the end of magazines with a little finger hole to help you pull them out of the pouch faster ("mag pull").

    Company made a product called the "magpul" which allows you to pull your magazines out more quickly

    they because famous as fuck so they named themselves "magpul" and started to market innovative gun accessories. bad name choice because now their namesake product is called the "magpul magpul"

    they're basically the apple of airsoft. everyone has done something similar before, but they make it expensive and shiny

    They're a company based around real AR-15s but they do airsoft things (and obviously a lot of the furniture is compatible just by nature).

    Friend wants a gun to have, is going to get a KWA M93R

    This is his list thing.

    1. Super gun package with 2 mags
    2. Propane adapter
    3. BB's

    What else does he need?

    Starting with a gas gun, let alone a pistol, is a pretty poor idea IMO. I'd say he needs a decent AEG rifle to cut his teeth on.

    I think both would be very beneficial in a CQB situation (assuming you get the tracer unit)

    He's not going to play until I'm of legal age and have moved in with him in 3 years. He just wants a cool gun to shoot around his backyard.

    Gas guns require more maintenance, are less user-friendly, and much more expensive to operate. If he just wants something to plink with, get him a CO2 NBB pistol from Wal-Mart, it'll cost maybe $40 and he can deal with CO2 cartridges.

    Dropping $200+ on a gun that will only be used for backyard plinking for three years is a bad idea.

    I'm trying to convince him to go out to a field. He's a smart dude and has owned and maintained gas guns before, but lost interest and sold them.
