I know what you mean, you have a metal one piece Hop-Up unit. I have a spare 1 Piece TM plastic M16 hopup unit, if you would like to try that out. All I would require is for you to cover shipping costs, and if you want it (if it solves your problem, an would like to keep it), I could sell it to you pretty cheap. It's just the bear hop-up unit, no gears or anything. PM if interested.
BB jam problem is solved and my SR is running wild again. The problem was the crappy metal hop up from Guarder. I even tried it with a Guarder hop up bucking and was still getting jams. I contacted UN Company and they said there are quality issues with guarder's hop up. Unfortuately they didn't offer to fix the poor product I purchased from them, so I went with WGC shop to buy a Systema metal hop up. Although I had to drop that extra 30 bucks it was well worth it.
My friend just got a new hurricane body for his TM M4 today. I was wondering how exactly the motor is supposed to go in? I have been able to get it in part way but the end of the motor never gets in the mechbox far enough to make it shoot? The wires always are pushing it the wrong way. How exactly are the wires and the motor supposed to fit in there? We worked on it for about an hour and couldn't get the wires in right.

I do one on each side of motor (front and back). You want to make the wires as snug to the inside of the grip as you can, and as straight also. And also, you have to sort of just push it in, and if its hard to push in when its mostly in, you have it wrongly in, so take it back out and angle it more, than more until you get it in and it springs up and down. It is a pain, for sure. It's sort of a trial and error thing. I figured that out on my second M4.
They really don't have tabs as a plastic body does. Instead it is two halves that slide together. There are what you could call joints at the front that ar ethe same as the metal body where the a pin goes there. The back pin on the metal body is just to plug the hole I believe. You slide the top half on the top of the gearbox and push in the front joint and it is locked in place.
So there is no worry of one breaking and then not being able to lock it closed like with the plastic TM M4A1? Even if you are kind of rough with the thing?
I own a TM M4 and so far I've not broken the tabs but I've also not opened the gun or used it in cold weather. After having a friend break both his tabs in one day due to extreeme cold I've stopped using mine in the winter. I've been holding off on a metal body until I could see one in person but no one I know owns one and I've never seen pictures of how they are held together.
I hated to spend $200 dollars on something that might break too. I guess thats cool to know.
I'm looking at the HurricanE HK M4 metal body. I'm trying to piece together an HK M4 style carbine. Those things are SO sexy. I'm having a hard time finding the rear and front sights though. Found a product called the HK M4 tri rail gas block though so I assume someones got to make the front sight.
Well thanks for the info Knife. I think I'm going to order that HurricanE HK M4 metal body then.
I haven't broken a tab in any of the two M16 metal bodies I've got in my posession. There's not only tabs like a plastic body to hold it together but also two extensions that come off the back of the upper that will hold it together even if the tabs break. You'd have to really whale on a metal body or use tools to make it broken to the point that it won't stay together.
Another question. What about the Classic Army M4 metal bodies? Anyone have any expericance with these? Someone on another forum has a metal body from his CA M15A4 for sale really cheap. It's listed as having a cracked tab but thats all the info he gives.
Do the CA bodies slide together like say the HurricanE's? I'm wondering if this might not really be an issue and worth the $40 dollars he is asking. The seller says it will work on a TM gun. This is also correct?

I have recently purchased a HurricanE M4 metal body. After assembling it, I found that the BB's would not fire in semi, but would roll out after i pull the trigger if I tilt the gun forward. On full auto I managed to get one BB out when i fired a three shot burst (the other two rolled out after as in semi) I believe I put the gun together correctly and was wondering if anyone had a clue to what the problem may be. Any insight as to what it could be and how to fix it will be greatly appreciated.
