I've now put close to 500 rds in my new LM4 and I've got to say that I'm very pleased. I've had 2 jams, but the BB's were very simple to unjam. It's fairly accurate for a GBB, and a TON of fun to shoot. Internally it was pretty gunky when I first opened it to clean, but I wiped off a lot of that stuff with a q-tip and applied lube. The M9 functioned perfectly with no issues. Very nice pistol, although I tried adjusting hop up and nothing seemed to happen...hmm

Only issue with the LM4 I seem to be having is the bolt seems to be sticking to the hopup when I pull the bolt back. When you pull fast you can't notice it, but if you pull slowly you can see and feel it sticking...guess I'm going to see what happens after a few thousand rds.

Just from opening the gun and seeing that it is so similar to a real M4, I can tell that repairs will be a breeze and make me less nervous than opening a gear box. I think I made the good choice.

The question now is do I sell my AEG G&P. I had planned on keeping my AEG as a buckup, but after shooting the G&P for about 2 minutes after shooting the LM4, it just wasn't nearly as much fun. I may still sell the G&P and get a WE SCAR-L for a backup and then get a cheaper AEG just for a 3rd backup later down the road. For now, I'm a huge GBBR fan.

The nozzle normally sticks a little, it would be bad if you absolutely couldn't get it to move. Depending on where you live I would REALLY consider keeping the G&P. Cold weather kills your gas efficiency like hell, which I thought I could tough it out like on my MP7 but the LM4 has much larger internals so it didn't work so well at 30 degrees :P

I'd definitely keep the G&P AEG as backup. GBBRs are great fun but when it comes down to reliability, I'd stick with my AEG.

Thanks for the help guys!  This gun is really sweet and I love it.  I also bought a KMP9 last week and it arrived yesterday, and I'm still trying to get used to it.  Very small and a little different when all you've ever dealt with is rifles and pistols.  I think I definitely will keep my AEG until I get a decent buyer on Craigslist.  If I can sell the gun for my asking price or close, I may look into a SCAR AEG for varieties sake.

You're gonna love the MP9, my buddy has one and I have the MP7, and those are probably our favorite guns to use respectively. I gotta say though it's pretty comical to see a huge ~300lb guy like him running around with an MP9 :rolf2:

No kidding!  I'm a really big fat guy and I feel ridiculous with it.  But, I'm losing weight and doing well, so I'm hoping to be down to my goal weight in another few months.  I put a red dot on the KMP9 and holy smokes it looks like a beast!

Good for you :) Airsoft has a way of helping a lot of people get a good workout without realizing it, since you're too busy getting shot at to think about it. Said friend of mine is actually losing a lot of weight, hell he even joined with the National Guard so I'm sure he'll be more fit than me soon enough.

As much as I love how cool DMR's and carbines look there's just no comparison to how natural and fast the PDW class of weapons is. Personally I didn't like the MP9's grip much, since I have really bony hands and joints it makes those abrupt corners a little awkward, plus the lack of ambidextrous features was another thing. To be honest though I feel like the MP9 has a much more rugged external build, since the stock isn't just two pieces of aluminum... Yes, I destroyed the original ones on my MP7, but hey that forced me to get the 3 position stock rails :D how do you like the M9? Has your LM4 seen any hard use games yet?
