hey gang, been a long, long time. So the guys from work dragged me back into airsoft after what feels like a lifetime. I went online, grabbed a new 11.1 nunchuck, and immediately stripped the piston on my old CQB gun. Oh well. I put it in my old FMG4 and it seemed to run fine (albeit missing about 60fps). Decided it was fine for ONE game. It wasn't. Blew the piston in the pouring rain at beginning of game 3. Anyway my question is this. Im going to rebuild those guns and got all the parts on the way but for the sake of boring reliability I want a back up field gun. No hot rodded anything, just something that I can throw a 7.4 lipo in and never have to worry about it. I HAVE an old bone stock VFC 416C that I have never had open. Is that a good candidate for a shim, aoe, 120 spring or is it technologically eclipsed by any $199 hunk of pot metal that would provide better service? I have NO idea how far the designs have evolved.
