ICS M4 Restoration – Part 2 – Airsoft Rewiring

A few days ago I finally posted my video on the installation of a Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor, or MOSFET, into an ICS M4 airsoft gun. This formed part of the rewiring process required to improve and protect the stock airsoft trigger circuit. The desire for higher levels of performance has seen the widespread adoption of 11.1 Volt LiPoly batteries, and the accelerated damage caused by electrical arcing on the trigger contacts. Therefore, the use of MOSFETs in today’s age of high performance automatic electric guns has become mandatory.

ICS M4 Restoration – Part 1 – Shimming

In this entry I am restoring an ICS M4 S System starting with work on the gear train. The core of every AEG rebuild is a good shim job that stabilizes the gears and ensures smooth operation. In this entry I will show you how I go about the shimming process and the things to watch out for.

Misfeeding Airsoft Gun – AEG TM G36C

Welcome everyone to the Hobby & Tech Warrior! In this repair log I am faced with what I thought was a misfeeding airsoft gun. Here I have my friend’s Tokyo Marui G36C, and it has a problem. The motor spins and the gearbox cycles, but the BBs don’t always shoot out. When they do, they are so weak that they bounce off tissue paper. So if your automatic electric gun, or AEG, is acting up in a similar fashion, come along on my investigation to discover one possible method of repair.

Airsoft 226 Takedown Lever Replacement Instructions

Welcome everyone to another airsoft repair related entry. In this article I will be installing a new takedown lever on my WE Tech F226 airsoft gas blow back pistol. I was doing a recoil impulse comparison between two P226 style airsoft gas blow back pistols I own, and it just so happened that the takedown lever on my WE Tech F226 gave out and split in half, hence this entry. This isn’t the first time something has broken on my WE Tech F226, but to be fair I’ve also had this airsoft sidearm for some time now.

Being a variant, rather than a clone, I had some concerns as to the options available to me for the repair. There was the obvious OEM replacement, but that just meant I’d have to deal with this part breaking again down the line, and I didn’t like that idea. Thankfully after looking at what’s available I was able to find a suitable replacement part.

PC Build – High Spec Corsair Crystal 680X RGB

There are many guides and logs out there on how to assemble a computer, and I want to share my experience as well. However, when it comes to this build on the Corsair Crystal 680X RGB I was commissioned for, I find it more important to focus on some of the problems you are likely to encounter when building your own systems. There can be any number of problems and I hope this article helps. Even if just a little.
