    Post your stupid questions here if you can't be bothered to use Google. One of our attendants is standing by to deride you.

    Carry on, gentlemen.

    I'm tired of how front-heavy my gun is, it's meh trigger response, and the clunky battery box on the front that constantly rattles because of the nunchuck battery inside it.

    Should I get a rewire to rear + buffer tube lipo setup?

    Best shoulder-holster for a single-stack 1911? One that also holds Magazines would be great.

    What sort of battery are you using? A Lipo would help, but if you're already on a 9.6 or greater it might be worthwhile to look into a high-torque motor. I'm sure Jat knows more about this, but it's my understanding that if you try to just dump more power into a mediocre motor to get it to where you want, it's likely to just burn out.

    What battery should i go for if i want a really small but powerful one, like something the size of a lipo but with the output of something like a 9.6v battery.

    I'm not too well educated in terms of battery powers and things so feel free to enlighten me if i'm being dumb about anything.

    Tenergy 9.6v 2200 mAh nunchuck. The trigger response is better than my M16, but this thing still does lock up frequently and I can't compete with the high percentage of souped-up-gun-rolling elite players we have, who are pretty much the only people I face normally. To avoid the full auto restrictions, nearly everyone use beastly semi-only guns and spams on that setting instead. One way or another I'm going to have to upgrade this aspect of my M4.

    Like I said, I'm also growing tired of haggling with the exposed wires on the front of my gun. They take damage over time, they look horrible, the battery box makes a disturbing amount of noise, and just setting up said battery box is a pain every time I have to put the battery in and out.

    An M3 or M7 shoulder holster would be best. They don't hold magazines though.

    To my knowledge, rewiring to the rear is really easy. You just take your existing wiring, and run it out from the rear instead of the front, just pull your gearbox out and put the wiring in the buffer tube. You will have to cut it to length and reattach your plug, but that's it. Its also a great excuse to wire things to Dean's if you want to do that.

    M4? Go crane stock. It's so fucking comfortable when aiming down your sights. And you'd have a free choice between lipos and nunchuck batteries.

    A crane stock is $40 alone. If I remember right labor is free at the shop, but if not, that's just way too much money.

    Other way around. You can go back-to-front, but not front-to-back.
    He'll need a new wire harness

    Edited:

    They'll all fit on a standard TM. Only the middle one is kinda iffy on the front set.

    Are there any M16A1 colored A2 style recievers? I need a lower with a magazine fence on the side of the reciever, but anything other than VN recievers tend to be black.

    I require one for a ~secret project~ but they seem to be nonexistant and i don't want to butcher the nice VN slab sided lower i have.

    Ya i just realized there would be even more shit to replace then that. I'll probably just get rid of my tm, and maybe get the g&p. I don't really like the tm anyway.

    Tighten it. Suspenders might help too.
    But it really should ride around your waist anyways.

    You just replace the switch. The wires are all connected to the switch, so just take the old one out, put the new one in, and align the wires through the little channel on the sides of the gearbox

    should look like the middle picture when you're done

    Really the only thing you can do then is to tighten it more.

    One of these?

    The solution is in your pants.

    As in, just get pants with wide enough belt loops to fit it. 5.11 tac or cargo pants do it, whilst being super comfy.

    YOU

    you have your priorities right

    But yeah ALICE gear is really really cheap, and webbing is very effective. I have a friend who got a set of M-58 web gear and uses it for a week-long Nerf game on campus, and it serves him very well. I'd figure if it's good enough to be used for a solid week, it's good enough for a few hours of airsoft.
