I've been looking at getting the marushin m1 for a while. obviously they are 8mm and seem from what I've heard to run a little hot, i know its an 8 shot semi so you can not far off get away with it as a sniper but has anyone had any issue with it being to hot?

I haven't had an issue with mine being too hot, I've had reliability issues with mine. You should know a good machinist if you buy one.

I would stay away from them personally. You have an option to buy an ICS one which will have spare parts avaliable to the end of time itself.

The marushin can be too hot depending on the site rules u play at allow. (or country you are from i guess?)

As its 8mm and the balls weight is often 0.34 or 0.45 gm the chrono reading would have to be around 220-250 FPS to be allowed to use in close situations. Otherwise your left with a sniper which you won't be able to hit anything with.

My ICS Garand is firing sweet after Dadio downgraded it; no misfires and still extremely accurate.

The only problem I've now encountered is that one of the wires to the battery connector has become loose. Looks like a job for the soldering iron tomorrow.

If you got the first ones in the UK, it seemed to be torque of the motor would turn a weak spring to quickly. Bad planning on ICS part for the UK market.

Mate of mine had a brand new one first game problems, took it back given a new one with no questions asked. Same thing happened again. Was looked at by techs I presume they just put a crappy motor in it.

My ICS one does the same, also the magazines won't seem to catch properly but they fit tight enough so that it's not a huge issue

Sounds like the quality control on these was especially poor. I've heard of a few problems with different batches.

That makes sense,its about the only thing I've not tried. Never had much luck with ICS.
