Mike Buttrick and Nick Lawrence of Lincolnshire Airsoft Club take us through identifying and fixing problems with gearboxes, barrels and hop units WORKSHOP GEARING UP FOR MAINTENANCE I f you want your AEG to keep running smoothly then you’ll need to undertake regular maintenance. Nick Lawrence has been gun-tech at Lincolnshire Airsoft Club for five years, so I took advantage of his expertise to bring you this guide to competent maintenance of your weapon. Before you break open your AEG it is important to figure out the exact problem, so you can ensure you have the correct parts to hand. Remember that the longer an AEG is left open the greater the chance of parts going missing or becoming damaged. 063
