    Haha wow talk about.. Nevermind.
    I replaced gears, pistons, etc.. Free.. Your local tech needs to lower that a bit, I'm surprised if anyone would actually spend that much for a 10 minute fix

    $50.....I'll tune your gun with some modifications and install R-hop + M-nub......
    Pretty sure the work is also better than your local....

    I was wondering if anyone has found a different way to get an r hop. I was thinking of going and getting some rubber plastic tube from lowes and trying that out. Any ideas?

    Don't bother. Order the real patches for like... 10 bucks. You can try different crap but you'll probably never find the exact R-hop material. There's a lot of reasons that is important, but suffice to say it's not worth trying to imitate.

    $50 better include the cost of gears and shims.

    What gears does he put in because if he is putting on high end gears like a set of modify, element or guarder gears it's not that bad of a deal. Also how did you conclude that your gears were stripped?

    1. Modify gears are crap.
    2. Element gears are just rebranded stuffs.
    3. Guarder gears are too expensive for that.
    4. Most likely some Chinese gears.

    va3victus, use proper spelling and punctuation.

    "U" is not an acceptable substitute for "you".

    Rules clearly state that you must use both.

    It could just be you ar latch then and I said nothing about the quality of the gears I was just staying some of the most expensive brands that would make what the tech was charging a reasonable price. I agree that better results can be achieved with less expensive gears jg, shs etc. but I was just rationalizing why a tech would charge $50 to replace gears. Instead of saying highs end I should have said expensive instead of high end that is probably where the confusion came from.

    I do not know much about internals other than the gearbox so what exactly is the latch

    1. Bend a paper clip or similar metal rod into a L shape.
    2. Remove motor and handgrip.
    3. Insert paper clip through the hole which the pinion gear goes through and using the small l shaped hook pull the anti-reversal latch off the bevel gear in a downward motion.
