Can anyone give me a list of guns that have a 8mm gear box in then?
....Way too many to list.
Preferably in only the m4 and AK family and hopefully one with a price between 100-400
Um still way too many to list, a lot if not all of G&P M4s come with 8mm gearboxes so do all combat machines.
So the affordable G&G combat machines have 8mm gear box's?
Yep, so do some JG m4s, it's not that special.
Well I might have to buy a magpul/G&P m4 seems like the way to go.....wish they made it in a m16 length
Changing a front end isn't the hardest thing to you, you could always do it yourself, and if you forego the magpul G&P does make m16s.
Umm, you do realize there's only one reason to run an 8mm gearbox? To use Ceramic or hybrid bearings. Even then, Lonex and G&P bearings have been known to fail. I've never heard of broken Modify 8mm bearings, but it's easily possible.
IMO, bearings are not worth the risk. If you aren't going to use bearings (prefereably 7mm or 8mm ceramic or hybrid), you would be using bushings, and the size of bushings does not make any difference to performance or durability.
Basically, it doesn't matter if a gearbox is 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, or 9mm. Just put in some CNC heat-treated stainless steel Modify brand bushings and be happy.
Uh... 6mm bushings really do suck.
Eurogirl, just pick up a G&P/VFC AR of whatever length you want; don't worry too much about the bearing size, it really won't make a huge difference. Any will perform well.
6mm bearings suck... 6mm bushings are fine. Unless you can find some broken 6mm Modify's (???).
I'm talking about 8mm gear box as opposed to a 6mm gear box
Unless you're going for bearings, the size of the bushing holes doesn't matter. G&P's bearings are fine for most builds, Modify's are great, others are meh. But, bushings are always good.
Unless you're talking about an 8mm bb gun, instead of a 6mm bb gun...?
I assume 8mm gear box refers to size of the gears? Idk all I know is when I had a G&P cqbr it went as far and accurate was my classic army m16spr. So I'm confused now
Um....No, all the gears for v2 gearboxes are the same it refers to bushing size these.
They go here.
Does this have anything to do with how far the gun shoots?
Um, I'm going to say not directly.
What exactly does it do though? I'm so confused by this.
-______- Did you look at my above post, the one with 2 pictures? Showing what they are and where they go.
They provide the surface for the gears to rotate in, holding the gear shafts in place, and also help to distribute force in the gearbox. You want steel bushings, not nylon ones, as nylon ones snap/chip/etc rather easily. The gears in most gearboxes are similar, really, all that matters for a stock gun's range is the quality of the airseal (G&P and VFCs are usually pretty decent) and the quality of the hop bucking. The barrel length won't really matter for range, you can get similar range with an M4 (363 mm barrel) to what you can get with something like an M16 (509 mm barrel). Really, just choose which one you like the most, link it here, and we can help you decide if it's the right gun.
