Had a CA M4 that wasn't firing; Naturally went to disconnect the fuse and Tamiya connecter via the quick connectors for the front wiring so I can pull the wiring through the receiver and remove the gearbox. Unfortunately the person who worked on it last decided to cover the connectors in half a roll of electrical tape each, and underneath that the connectors were glued together.

Was that an attempt to make it waterproof?

I haven't really seen much in the way of crazy crap in mechboxes, but I do know a guy who made an entire tac vest out of nothing but duct tape. True story.

Looked like a tac vest made of duct tape. Silver and sticky looking.

On the plus side though, with a thousand dollars you couldn't make a piece of gear that fit better or had the pouches positioned so perfectly. He might start a trend. Make tactical silver into the new tactical black.

Hmm there are black and camo coloured duct tapes out there. This could be the start of a new trend.

Don't forget to add the red and green suspenders.

A team mate reciently gave me a gun to work on for him (he actualy aquired it from ASC). I found three different types of wire from mechbox to buttstock. I believe they were in this order. High temp kitchen stove TEW, Speaker wire and something that could only be described as a power cord to a 1970's telephone. Also the "Gun doctor's" (using that term very loosely...very), idea of a home made sorbo pad was something of a failed abortion.

There's a very good reason why I send away for any work my gun needs. Every time I try to do something myself I break it.

Case in point: My crosman shotgun and one of my AK mags. I thought it would be a good idea to open up the shotgun, to see how it worked. Problem is, there's one part that's held in place by the side. When I took the body off, little piece drops into oblivion and I have a shotgun that now only fires out of 1 of 3 available barrels.

The AK mag I just used WD-40 to lube, which apparently corrodes plastics. Not using that mag until I can confirm with you guys, but suffice to say I'm off to a great start in learning the inner workings of airsoft guns.

I have started to do some work on my guns. I have shaved out two pistol grips to fit my scar and m4. Wreck one which caused 50 bucks. Also found that my new m4 pistol grip screw hole on the gearbox is stripped. Had to use some pc screws that was longer with some loctite blue to make sure it doesnt vibrate off.

I summoned the dead on this one lol. I was picking through it earlier and realized I had a good one to share, so share I did.

Is all good, better than getting raped about starting a "repost thread".

Thats one thing that gets me about this ASC place, a new (or old player) gets flamed for asking a an age old question and all replies are "Search it, we don't spoon feed around here", yet when an old thread is brought back from the depths (maybe a search was done, a thread found but inquiry not answered, or new info is provided in said thread), the new person gets flamed for "necroing" an old post. Obviously a search was done, so what's the big deal?

Honestly, I've been here since 2003 and it all still baffles me, most things info-wise are a catch 22. Damned if you did, damned if you didn't. :-?

Using Outdoor Window Sealant is not a form of waterproofing your gearbox.

Using Perma Threadlock on mechbox screws

Masking Tape is not an acceptable replacement for Wire Shielding

Filling your Inner Barrel with Mud and letting it harden inside its pretty stupid.

Keep your lipo's plugged in and constantly draining with LED's and shit so when your gundoc gets it, it becomes unstable and combusts. We love that shit.
