    Hey guys, I just bought my first marui and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with tm gearboxes in a ca G3 body. Or if anyone knows if the tm should fit into a ca m4 style body. I want a strong gun with tm internals. - Bonus, tell me what you would do with a tm G3 or any g3

    I'm not sure why you would want tm internals in any aeg that's using a v2 gearbox, short of it being for a cqb 280fps build.

    What internals would you suggest for an outdoor build?

    What budget...? Lonex shell, shs internals, zci ht motor is good without being too expensive. Sub Lonex shell for a jg or cyma or other generic acm shell to save ~$20 or so

    So a jb shell would hold up better than a tm? Is it the shell its self that will crack? Or the fact that its running bushings and a plastic piston?

    Tm version 2 shells are weak compared to jg or cyma or dboys or anything really. Lonex shell is top shelf imho. Vfc is good too (Lonex cloned it). CA I don't like the self tapping screws instead of standard m3 screws. G&G's version 2 is weak also. Stronger than tm, but weaker than others. Tm gears are cast pot metal. Everyone else is using something stronger. Their nylon piston is awesome if you're running full stroke. Just need to shave 2nd tooth for aoe. Their piston head is meh. It works fine, but using it ok, just drill some holes to let it suck air on back stroke to fill cylinder there (like most piston heads are drilled on face)
