So I took apart my G36C gearbox and after removing the gears I noticed shims (at least I think they are) but from what Ive read the 2GX gearboxes arent supposed to have them and now Im not sure where they fit in or even what they are.

Topic moved to appropriate section.

What do these "shims" look like?  You are right the 2GX GB does not require nor come with shims.  Can you take a picture?

Without looking at it I am thinking the "shim" is a part of your bearing.  A bearing cover to be more exact.  If this is the case it's not good so check your bearing to make sure they are all intact. And you have to completely disassemble your GB to find those little ball bearings if your bearings blew.

All the bearings are intact and the little balls still inside, only three shim things and 6 bearings.

That is weird..................... I asked other mods to chime in so let's see what they have to say.  Did you see where these fell out from?  And you bought the gun new?

Those appear to be bushing covers. If they are then your gun will need new bearings.

Those are shims alright.  We have recently decided to add shims to 2GX gearbox to minimize any issues with the bearings.  Doing this will slow down the gearbox (just a little) but add more stability with the gears and bearings.

How recently, which 2GX guns, and without opening the gearbox how would one know if they have the new shimmed model?
