Since I'm not quite sure where to post this, I thought it would be best to be placed in General.. So first off, is this even possible? I want to have a GBB SR10 or SR12, and from what I have found, those model GBBs simply aren't made. Which brings me to the question, is it even possible to convert an AEG into a GBB? And if so, how difficult would it be? I've wanted a GBBR for some time, but haven't had the money and for the first years I played, didn't have the experience that I felt I needed to have to be able to run a GBBR. Any help would be appreciated! I remember years ago when I asked if I could make a springer into an AEG and very simply was told to leave them how they are lol So I was just wondering if this kind of conversion was even possible.

Chuck is absolutely correct.  You just buy the barrel and rails from an SR10 or SR12 and simply install it on an LM4.

You can do it with this kit. http://www.evike.com...oducts_id=38179 But they are a pain in the butt to get working properly.

Full auto needs to be tuned if you want it to work. If you only want semi auto then it's a drop in kit. I will say this it is the most gas efficient gbbr I have ever use. You will get about 100+ shot per mag if you fill it full of gas.

Is there a video on how to tune it? If it's easy I might do it. Otherwise I could probably live with just the semi as long as it's really snappy. I have a fast trigger finger, just need a gun that can keep up :P

The trigger response is just like any other GBB. So it will shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. I don't know of any videos about tuning the kit. Every gun is a little deterrent when it comes to that. And a quick warning I don't know what mod will need to be done to make it work in a KWA. I have only installed the kit in non KWA guns.

What has the general response been on it? Were customers satisfied with it? I read on a forum that says that overall it wouldn't be worth it buying just the gearbox, and it would just be easiest to buy a GBB.

The owners of  the kits that I have installed have been happy with them. As for what I think of them I would just buy or build a real gbbr m4. And yes you can get mags.  http://www.evike.com...oducts/41691/   The kit is the same one that king arms and G&G use in there cheap gbbr m4. So you can use there mags too. As for replacement parts they can be order from GHK.

Once I get a job I'll be able to afford them. Right now I'm basically doing odd jobs just gettin cash. I'm hoping to get one within the week, so I might get this in a couple weeks when I buy my stuff from Evike.

It says it should be, but that some minor modifications are needed.
