Best Quick and Easy Upgrades to Any AEG
So now we enter the world of high performing neodymium magnet motors. These permanent rare earth magnets are 2-3 times stronger than the ferrite magnets in stock AEGs. As such, the motors are a lot stronger as well, given theyíre able to turn over much more quickly, more efficiently and with less heat. Motors such as these work extremely well in your favor by being able to pull springs with much more ease, thus increasing your potential for several different custom builds and combinations.
Changing the motor out of a gun is fairly easy. For most common AEGs (M4ís, AKís, etc.) typically the motor is housed in the grip of a rifle. Itís a fairly straightforward process of taking the motor out, swapping the wires, popping the new one in, adjusting the motor height and making sure everything sounds good and smooth with the new motor. If you need an in-depth tutorial on taking the motor out of the gun, YouTube and airsoft forums are a great resource for assistance.
The most common motors youíll want to look at are balance/torque motors. These motors have a rating between 16 to 22 turns per armature (TPA). TPA defines the number of times the armature is wound inside the motor. Lower TPA equals higher speed while higher TPA equals higher torque. Most stock guns come with a standard gear set inside of them, so youíll want to stick to 16-22 TPA motors for basic drop-ins, as you generally wonít be required to tune the gearbox itself.Some great budget motors for AEG upgrades would include the following:
No two airsoft guns will be the same. When youíre doing an AEG upgrade, take your time, take it slow and organize your work. Look through tutorials, guides and other resources or ask fellow techs for advice. With time, your desired airsoft gun will come to fruition. Use these tips and soon enough youíll be picking people off from unseen ranges and angles.
All airsoft guns are required to have the tip (1/4 inch) of the barrel permanently colored in blaze orange. No person may openly display or expose any imitation firearm (replica firearm), in a public place. The term "public place" means an area open to the public or exposed to public view and includes streets, sidewalks, bridges, alleys, plazas, parks, driveways, parking lots, automobiles, whether moving or not, and buildings open to the general public, including those that serve food or drink, or provide entertainment, and the doorways and entrances to buildings or dwellings and the grounds enclosing them.
Any person who changes, alters, removes, or obliterates any coloration or markings that are required for by any applicable state or federal law or regulation, for any imitation firearm (replica firearm), or device in any way that makes the imitation firearm (replica firearm) or device look more like a firearm is guilty of violating the state or federal law.
