I have had one of these for a while, and whilst it has been brilliant it is now driving me crazy. In short every time I try and use it, something breaks and as I love being a support gunner I am getting desperate for assistance. I have spent about a day and half searching through the internet and whilst I have found some great advice on suggestions to improve the box mag, etc most of it is complete gibberish to a rank amateur of the sport. At present the gun is in its standard, straight out of the box type and Im really hoping for some tips/advice to upgrade it to a half decent reliable weapon in plain english!

I have currently noticed the following problems (although there may be more so please do comment if there are):

+Useless unfeeding box mag that keeps jamming
+Pathetic Range
+Low rate of fire
+Gearbox keeps shredding.

Any help would be very very appreciated!

If i remember correctly aren't the Star support weapons gearboxes plastic? ive heard of many problems of overheating within the gearbox.

I cant give you advice for the magazine issue as i dont own one.

but,

Pathetic range would indicate that you need a new inner barrel and Hop-up
Low rate of fire would indicate that you need to upgrade your motor and get some highspeed gears
Gearbox keeps shredding means get a metal reinforced gearbox shell and replace everything

Hope this helped you buddy.

Thanks Matt

I have done a bit of research and I think I will be getting metal ARES m60 internals so should sort most of the problems. I have no idea how to change the inner barrel, or the hop-up thou so any further help would be much appreciated!

Regards
