Lightbulb Magnets & Motors


I was just wondering if anybody had done anything along the lines of taking the magnets out of 1 motor and swapped it into another motor?

Basically, my gun came with a shitty stock motor that I have no use for and I have another motor laying around in the house with a stripped pinion gear, rather than change it, I am wondering if I can simply take the magnets out of my stripped extra motor and put them in the other motor.

I guess my question is are the magnets in a motor the only thing that determines how much torque a motor has in affecting how efficient it is with an AEG.

Thanks in advance.

Yes it's entirely possible and has been done by numerous techs.

There are some guides and discussions on AirsoftMechanics.

Can be done, but you might have better results just buying a new motor.
Really helps having the motor entirely balanced and turned, and your spring tensions adjusted as well.

Can be done, but useless.

You are way better buying a new one or swap the rotor into the good magnets motor....

But for that you need a puller to remove the pinion gear anyways.

Basic tools would be a puller, soldering iron, precision caliper and a 1/10 scale RC car motor truer.

I only lack the truer, but if you have some other tools (a dremel, some spare motor bearings and a vise works) you can do it the same way.
