    I am a friend of magkill he guided me here for help with my dmr project it's I have old m4 parts that I'm going to put In to a new m16. He told me this is the place to figure out what pieces go with what and so on. I'm not going to ask for help for a long time because I don't have the money to buy the m16 yet.

    First and foremost, PLEASE DON'T ASK MAGKILL TYPE QUESTIONS.


    Hola and welcome to the society, here you will be able to rebuild your airsoft life with threads and threads of new information! Up at the top is a search bar, it will look like this.

    [​IMG]

    One of the greater things about this society is that it's been around FOREVER so you can imagine nearly every simple question has been asked before, such as "what's the best m4 for 150 dollars?", "What's the best brand?", or "Help with DMR build" and all that information can be yours (if your're willing to learn that is)!
    Alternatively if you have trouble with the search bar, you can try searching via google and just attaching "airsoft society" to the end of it. Like so.

    Now I don't mean to bully you, and you may be wondering why I'm giving you all this new information, but around here we have a rash of new guys who always ask the same questions, and to be frank, it gets old. So I'm just making you aware of all this the second you join, so you can help us avoid some of the trouble. Get em while they're young, know what I'm saying?

    Oh and like everyone else said, be sure to read the rules! http://www.airsoftsociety.com/forums/f10/announcement-rules-regulations.html

    Lastly, because some people don't understand the concept we have people called moderators, who hang about the forum policing it and making sure the rules are followed! You may notice them as some of the guys giving threats:D either way you are going to want to make sure you check the rules to stay out of the way of those guys, those guys being (Currently active Mods off the top of my head)

    Unless you have some very solid evidence arguing with any mods isn't a good idea.

    Do you have any tech experience by chance? Techs are always a nice addition to the forum; always have people asking about builds and people who need help fixing their gun. If you're not perfectly that's perfectly fine as well! Hang around here long enough and you'll probably try something or other with your gearbox. One note on posting although, another thing people have a tendency to do when they join (and even some members who've been around a while) is give out poor information or give out simply incorrect information, don't be afraid to share your experiences or your opinion, but if you get into a factual argument, please please make sure you're facts are right for example please don't post things along the lines of

    First off that would violate the rules which state to use proper spelling and grammar, so let's go ahead and add that in.

    This is better, at least you aren't violating any rules with this, however one of the first things you should learn is that FPS doesn't mean nearly as much as people would like to believe, for example the difference in range between 350 FPS and 380 FPS is negligible. So that isn't really a selling point, also when you think about it that post really doesn't describe much about the gun! Let's try making it a non arguable statement with some more details. A good guide (when recommending something) is to find several things you like about the gun and at least making note of one thing you didn't like, this way people can see you're at least trying to be non biased, for example, I'm much more likely to believe the guy saying "Yeah I personally love goldenball bbs, they get me fantastic range, but I have spotted a high rate of bbs with bubbles in them." than the guy who says, "Goldenball bbs are awesome, they get me fantastic range!" Now adding that all into this quote.

    This is a much better post, however brings me to the last of my points, if you ever tell someone to look for something try to provide a link. If there are several lancer tactical reviews he may find a crap one where a guy fires 5 shots at a paper target on his backpack some 15 feet away. To avoid this, link him and he can go watch a decent review, then maybe find other reviews on his own.

    That's all for now, read, check out the sales section (classifieds) and post!

    Magkill is not the person to be listening to. He has zero experience with anything he has said. By the way, welcome to the forum, and, if you have any questions, shoot me a PM. I can actually speak from experience. Enjoy your time here.

    No that was what he told me about the brands the guns he advised me were the king arms full metal m4 and change out the front barrel assembly for longer ranges that was unlikely for me to do that but a good idea because king arms guns are great to start out with and easily customizable.

    Why do you need to change out the front barrel? Just buy one with a long barrel...

    So, I think it's time I brought back one of my rants. Read this, and you will understand.

    I think I have said enough. Once you have read that, you will understand why magkill is wrong.

    He's really a good player he never let's the team lose and never cheats we care more about the game than the guns. We use the crapy cross man guns for a crapy gun war when it gets serous we use g&g fn guns king arms and other really good guns. Mag kill know what he's doing its proven by him fixing other people's guns and replacing parts. I'm going to use this forum in addition to getting help from magkill. Thanks every one.

    LOLWUT? Can't tell if trolling or just stupid. Anyone can replace parts.... Heck, my 8 year old brother built one of my gearboxes. It didn't sound good, but he built it. By the way, I suggest forming your sentences properly before a mod comes in here. They won't be nice about it.

    He fixes gear boxes and broken parts on every aspect of the guns we have. He's just asking about the guns that our group doesn't have. He's not stupid like you guys think.

    From what I've seen, he's beyond stupid, but that's a topic for another day. Please, let's just drop the topic of magkill and part ways so I don't have to prove anything...

    I forgot he knows all the upgrades that our guns need like what's better he fixes the problem that pros fix. He even told me that I shouldn't take apart the gear box of my g&g fn fal until I'm sure that it needs repair he's not stupid I looked up a video on it and he was right.

    You don't need to take the gearbox out of any until it needs repair, that shouldn't require a video, I think he just knows more than you, what are these problems that the "pros fix?"

    Fixing a problem is easy. High stress builds are what set the men away from the boys, or, in this case, the pros from the amateurs.

    Couldn't agree more Archer, I can fix MANY problems with guns, but I cannot build anything that performs above most stock guns.

    Actually, you're wrong in that post. You can hit to 450 feet without an XR or extreme FPS. hue.

    Star folder read over it as did EDI1st. Sure, you can. However, you better be good at what you're doing. Age did that IIRC. Hs5 probably did as well.
