Ive got a little problem with my BOYI airsoft CH-0581 shotgun: I LITTLE plastic (I hate plastic :() piece inside wore out and I don't know what to do about it. The best thing would be to find a blacksmith I think (I have a friend who's brother is a blacksmith, but he's away at collage) and have him make me a metal version :D Anyway does anyone know how to make a replacement part out of metal or something? Its a really small part (About 1"x1") that I think I can fix myself. I don't feel like sending the gun to China for repairs :bawl: What's funny is I've replaced several pieces in the gun with metal ones I happened to have (I replaced a part of the trigger system with a Palm Styles!) so it's working a lot better (That is, when it was working). I've also added some weights inside :)

So does anyone know how to make metal molds or do you know any place that does them for you? Thanks!

Anyway it's a pretty good gun for $20 if you don't mind doing repairs!

Eh...maybe buy spare parts for it if it's a popular model. As for you molding, I'd maybe talk to gun smiths and ask them for advice. Sorry I can't help you more.

If you think it's possible, try using a piece of a metal coat hanger.

It would be a good gun if the internals weren't plastic, get a good shotgun like the UTG m87.

UTGs have poor quality control in my experience. Instead of getting the knock off UTG, I bought the real thing: a Maruzen shot gun.

But I'd just try to find a replacement part online instead of making a replacement.

Eh, or just go for a gun that's not $20... I bought a MAC10 for $20, broke before I got the damn thing.

Well considering he buys cheap $20 guns I'd say for him to get the UTG. I have a Maruzen L96 so I'm not cheap.

lol. Ive given up on it. After fixing it the whole thing kind of exploded.... :eek:

I went to walmart (hehe) and bought the shotgun there for $25. The inside parts are MUCH better and the quality is much better (320+ FPS I believe), much better than the 250 from that BOYI gun....). Only problem with it was that the mag only held about 18 rounds :lol: but I bought a Hi-Cap (180 round) clip off the amazon and it works great! It even held up to my friend trying to pull it out of my hand and from dropping on a few rocks (BTW I beat my friend :)) I don't play all that often so i'm not too willing to pay more than $50 on an airsoft gun :)

FPS is not a parallel with quality. Tokyo Mauri guns are around only 270 fps, but they are the best in quality. Anywhoo, asides from that, what do you use as weights? and how/where to you put them? I've got a few cheap guns, but they feel like cap guns, and need some weight to them.

I took the weights from a gun that broke and found little places for them. Small, heavy, chunks of metal work best I think. I try and put them in the handle or near the front. Usually the middle is heavy enough.
