I took apart my first gearbox when I was in grade 8. I tried to change the spring in a WELL R-6 but I fucked up and didn't put in the ARL spring or trigger spring. Thing still cycled, but at 200 fps with a messed up trigger and gears that kept reversing.

I decided not to touch gearboxes for a few years, but the next time I did I got everything together properly.

Well, lets see...

In failures:
1. The nozzle of a V3 gearbox that i just DSG'd flew off during testing.
2. caused a Tinley motor to loose magnetic power because it was grip melting hot. (note: AB breaking on the Chimera has ZERO current limiting capabilities, soo if you are using say a 5000mAh HUE HUE HUE C 11.1 battery, it will dump ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the amps on the endbell causing heat, lots and lots of heat.)

In hilarity:
Desided the 16AWG wire that came with above Chimera was to bitchy. so I made 14AWG fit (it involved destroying the screw terminals...)


Ummm im sure there is a bunch others but I cant think of them. Im a tech that only works on his OWN guns because well I like bleeding edge stuff and generally that causes them to fail, explode, catch fire, or shoot like 2 feet

About a week ago, was stripping my OB WE M4A1 to clean it for a potential buyer, decided to relube the buffer system. Was tired after a week of 12 hour shifts and not paying attention. Ended up having the buffer spring shoot over my shoulder, taking my glasses with it. My cat had a field day with that one.

Most of my fuck ups have ended with my cat chasing springs, screws, or pins around the room.

Have you ever found random BB's in your cats poop when cleaning the litterbox? Or BB's in a room when nothing airsoft related has ever been in it? I once found a BB in the back corner of an up high cupboard where I keep my plates and cups.

The only thing that ever comes to mind for me is when I screwed up the charging handle spring disassembling my upper to get to the hop up and barrel so I could change out the bucking.

here's a good one.

Reassembling my 5-7, I was trying to hold the recoil spring and ring back on the outer barrel while I put the o-ring stopper on (that prevents the recoil ring and spring from shooting off the end of the barrel, and out the front of the gun). My hand slipped, the o-ring slipped off and the spring shot the recoil ring off the outer barrel.

My work bench is in an unfinished basement. So I heard:

TWANG.
crash.
clankclankclank
ping
rollping
pingping
roll
that stupid sound a coin makes when it's settling onto a face.

FUCK.

Quickly count pieces ... see that the recoil spring is there, the irreplaceable o-ring is there, the barrel is there, along with the hop up unit and barrel base. Nothing is broken...

recoil ring missing.

game the next day morning... current time.. 11pm.

fuck.

initiate search.

2 hour search, can't find it.

searching on the furnace, on top of the ductwork where I thought I heard it go... on the I beam ledges. no dice.

Search frantically online for a replacement. WGC sells a plastic replacement... it's like 2 bucks... now I have to ship it... buy a shitload of other stuff to justify a 20$ shipping fee... fml.

went to bed closer to 2:30 am.

went to the field to drop off guns I finished teching for people, but discouraged and convinced the airsoft gods did not want me to play.

Went home, got on a chair with a flash light and looked on top of the ducting again. Still couldn't find it.

So reconstructing by sound... I had to come up with this narrative:


TWANG.

fucking spring shoots the ring off the end of the barrel at an upward angle.

crash.

The barrel assembly shooting the opposite way into the work bench as I held the spring in place but let go of the barrel, releasing the other half of the stored spring energy as I had pinched it too slow to stop it from shooting the ring off.

clankclankclank

The ring bouncing in BETWEEN 2 runs of ducts in the ceiling, up back and forth onto the top of the ducts.

ping

Hitting the I beam

rollping

rolling/bouncing to the other side of the beam.. this is now going downwards following a U in the duct runs.

pingping

bouncing as it rolls, off the far side of the U, up off the far side of the I beam, back on top of the duct on the other side of the beam now.

roll

rolling

that stupid sound a coin makes when it's settling onto a face.

and that sound as it wobbles and settled on the face, on the duct, but under the I-beam.

The only way I found it was taking my camera and taking a shitload of photos with the flash, and even then I found it only because the paint had worn off one part and the bare metal was reflecting.

WGC order arrives friday the week after. lol. 60 bucks I ended up not having to spend. fml.

I've never found BBs in the litterbox, thankfully. Little bastard likes to eat everything though, so I'm honestly surprised. He likes to chase little parts around when I've got my guns disassembled and spread out on my desk on a cloth.

There's been the odd time I've shot off a spring or something like it and had him bring it back to me, though, so there's that.


He's a cute little fucker, though.

Gun build for a customer. Nice aftermarket parts, nice base gun.
Gut gearbox completely, perfect clean and dry. Polish everything.
Perfect compression. Best (personal) shimming job ever. Makes lead tech go "Ooooh, fuckin' nice bro".
Feeling pretty good, everything goes back together perfectly.
So confident, I don't even throw on the test motor. Straight to full build, wipe down externals to clean it up and rack it.

Connect battery, pull trigger: "VTrrrrrrr. VTrrrrrr."

No ARL.

Choke back rage tears, we clock out in 2 minutes.

I've done that like, 20 times.

trigger springs not staying put is my pet peeve. ARL is trivial once you start using a neo magnet to hold that fucker in.

For sure. I just have a blind spot centered in my field of view shaped exactly like an ARL.

I had a g&g combat machine m4 about a year ago and something went wrong with it. Me thinking it was a gearbox i tryed opening it. I took all the screws from the motor, took out the motor, removed the upper receiver and then i was ready to take the stock off. I tryed twisting the buffer lock off but nothing. So i took a hammer and a flat screwdriver and was pounding on the buffer lock to twist but nothing. So after i completely mangled the buffer lock i checked on youtube for a dissasemble video of the gr15 cqb version and found out the buffer lock was just for show. And thats why ladies and gents you refer first then start hitting things with a hammer.

I tried to fix my old graphic card that was over-heating. I simply had to change the CPU fan... Ended up removing the CPU. No worry, I had some CPU heat paste handy. The problem was, it never came back together the way it was supposed to. And I neved found a fan to fit.

550$ later, a new graphic card was bought.

I once traded for a KJW hi capa with probably what feels like a 160% recoil spring and short stroked.
The gun had a single piece recoil rod and not the nice two piece ones. Upon removing the spring guide and recoil pug for the first time resulted in a $150 mistake as the recoil guide plug launched with enough velocity into the upper left hand side of my new laptop screen.

One inch left or up would have missed the screen completely, but oh no. It just had to hit the screen.
