What pooch did you screw?

Okay, in the GunDoc Woes topic, you all are starting to sound like Dell techs, lol.
Arbitrarily THE authority. But, c'mon. Being human, you can screw up occasionally, can't you? You learned over time?
Personally, because I don't have a fragile ego to bruise, I'd find it more entertaining to hear how you guys screwed up!
Non-airsoft example?
When I was at Dell, a fellow tech helped a family Dr. D/F/F/R his work PC. Turns out the doc didn't follow the prior tech's advice that he BACK UP all his stuff so he'd not lose it.
Mistake my bud made was not making sure the doc did that when he called back for the wipe.
I'd love to hear about your learning experiences.
I've done one airsoft mod for someone. And while he seems pleased with the results, I'm not in the least happy with the quality of work I gave him, or the numerous mistakes I made while trying to perform the service.
It'll be a while before I have the nerve to charge someone again for editing a Scar rail to fit.
What do you have to say?

I rarely do any heavy teching on my own guns, let alone others. For good reason lol

The only instance I can think of, one that isn't really spectacular, was during the summer when I was doing some work on my SAW's hopup. I was working on my deck, trying to get the bucking sitting right, when the little plastic nub that pushes up on the bucking fell out, through the cracks in the boards, and off to hopup heaven.

Ended up buying a whole new hopup and using the old one for parts, even though I likely could have fabricated the bit

I did a homemade hop up on a pre-scw western arms 1911. The nub grew thin, so I just turned it up as much as I could. End result, completely mangled an inner barrel & chipped the tip of the nozzle.

I'll try to dig up the pics (4+ years ago)

Installed a reinforced pin into my TM Glock's front rail block. Got cocky with how strong it was and started running the APS CO2 magazines in the gun while testing. Hit 415 FPS and had the gun firing loud enough it could be heard through a cinder block wall and steel door. Second magazine... the reinforced "super hard" nozzle exploded.

Yeah, don't think I'll be repeating that one again.

I hammered the piss out of what I thought was a retention pin for an ambidextrous magazine release.

Turned out to be a screw..

Within five minutes of getting a parcel that took two weeks to arrive......I broke the connection between the two parts of a rather nice(& pricey) Nova 1911 ambi safety while test fitting on a slightly off spec frame.
Actually it was more like two minutes

Man...... that was a sweet sounding gun though, and I'm pretty sure it killed it when you showed me :P

On the plus side the replacement nozzle and o-ring set work better than that nozzle ever did.

Oh, and another one. I loctited my ABS Glock sights. Day later, fired the gun, and was promptly rewarded with plastic shrapnel to the face.

bent the armature on a brand new lonex motor trying to swap a pinion gear. That's the biggest goof I've done on an airsoft gun.

Not that big of a deal, I replaced it with a good armature from another motor with a similar TPA and wire thickness and essentially had the same motor in the end.

Yep, epic 1st V2 opening happened here too !! Lost the anti-reversal latch's spring, had to custom one out of some metal wire.

My first v2 take down was on an ICS split gearbox (the upper). Spring went flying, but it was pretty minimal.

I took apart an MP5 once, and had to sheepishly give it to a gun doc in pieces to reassemble, saying "I think it's all here".
