(Discontinued) BE Type 89 Airsoft Gun

Product Information:
I've owned this rifle for just over eight months, and it has served me well through dozens of skirmishes, It's finally beginning to act up, it's having issues with the gearbox, when I pull the trigger it locks up, even when plugged into a 9.6v battery. On that matter, it is impossible to fit a 9.6 volt battery in the rifle, and I have yet to find any possible way to modify it to take such a battery, so 8.4v volts are the max. This gun takes 7 celled stick batteries only (standard 8.4v stick) I wound up breaking my bipod due to a stupid lack of observation on my part (never try to force it open) A handy compartment hidden in the stock will hold a spare battery, and it may be possible to modify the stock and rewire the gearbox to the rear, if you really wanted to. The gun accepts most m16/m4 magazines, but none of the big brands fit very well (standard m16 magazines have a protruding feed tube, the Type 89 magazine has a flat top) so it's best to stick with the TM Type 89 magazines. I use .25g bbs in my rifle, and that gives roughly 4 inch groupings from 150ft shooting three round burst, without any barrel modifications. Once the hop-up is dialed in the bbs sail straight as well as far. Up to this point, it's been a fantastic rifle and hopefully I'll be able to get it back into operation fairly easily.
