Re: ASG Sten Gearbox Malfunction

Thanks for the quick and thoughtful replies, my dudes. Plan on picking up a mosfet now, but I'll be having someone else do the fitting, as my last venture into soldering went awry. :oops: EDIT: Actually, Airsoft World do a Burst Wizard 'plug-and-play' mosfet. It looks like it acts as a bridge betwee...

Re: ASG Sten Gearbox Malfunction

It's a 7.4, mate, avoided the higher voltage for reasons of wear and tear. Been using them for years though, so may well have taken its toll, finally. Is there any guides for fitting a mosfet you can recommend? Might as well give it a shot, seeing as it looks like I'll be cracking open the gearbox a...

Re: ASG Sten Gearbox Malfunction

Sounds like battery can't cope, is it a good one? Could be weak motor. It's a good quality set of lipos that I've used for years. Never gave me a problem 'til now, and they still chug along just fine in every other AEG I own. It could be the trigger itself , it's kind of a crappy design and the tri...

ASG Sten Gearbox Malfunction

Hi all, Hoping one of you is technically minded, as I'm not sure where to start. Last time the Sten was out was last year, and I was having an issue where I'd pull the trigger and the gearbox wouldn't cycle - it would sound like it was winding up, then 'choke' and stop. If I recall correctly, it wou...

Users of the Silenced Sten

I'm aware that limited numbers of silenced Mk2 Stens were issued to Commandos, but what about other units? Were Pathfinders given a go?

I'll be honest, I'm only asking because a silenced MkV looks very ally, and I'd like an excuse to use one. :giggle:

Great idea, mate, I'll keep it in mind. :good:

Re: The Kit Pic Thread

A nice pic taken at Nomad in Fenwick by the resident photographer (excuse the wonky front sight and lack of sling). He also did a wee photoshoot with those of us in WW2 kit - still waiting for those to be uploaded. Weather was sweltering. 8) http://s32.postimg.org/sujdeek7p/FB_IMG_1462757485034.jpg

Re: PPS K98 Magazine Questions

You press the top of the bar at the back. You can see the valve if you look in the top of the back assembly where the hammer hits. The metal block at the back acts as a hammer to engage the valve. The pps mags can be stiff to vent if new. It vents from the brass router with quite a bit of force! Ah...

PPS K98 Magazine Questions

Does anybody know how the hell to vent the gas from the PPS (and I would assume Tanaka) magazines? On a related note, if anyone knows what the sprung metal block at the back of the magazine does, I'd be grateful. :good:
