    Before people start hating, I did use the search bar and look back through threads and found nothing. Furthermore the CM is an old one that's better so anyways. My friend had this laying around not using it and had it for awhile and didn't like it, he had matrix CASV rails put on it, but didn't like them. He then purchased a 10" free float rail system and at time of installing that a wire came undone right out if the gearbox his dad spliced it. Anyways he took this rail off and tonight he gave it to me free. The issue is the wire is frayed and I don't know if it would be better to sauter or splice. I snipped the frayed part with wire cutters and pulled off the shrink wrap on the some more. Advice appriciated, YouTube links maybe as well? Can post pics tomorrow if needed.

    Either soldering or splicing will work. Splicing is quicker but soldering is a better fix. More... Permanent. Although slightly more difficult.

    Do I need to use anything to hold them or just solder them together?

    Not really but a layer or two of electrical tape couldn't hurt.

    Can you buy complete G&G blowback gearboxes?

    If soldering doesnt work splicing will do fine. It doesnt look as pretty or hold up as well but it will get the job done.
