    Hey folks,

    I just got a new VFC E series M4. It stopped firing after around 30 rounds! No sound whatsoever so it sounds like the fuse is blown... but for the life of me I can find the fusebox! It's rear wired and I've looked in the stock and inside the buffer tube but I can't find it anywhere! Anyone know where to look?

    Yip Gatling is right, only certain stocks carry the fuse when wired to the rear! Try another battery Dillon, if that does not work take it back to your retailer, do not go tinkering with it.

    That's what I feared - thanks guys... it'll have to go back - such a disappointment... and I thought VFC was going to be a safe bet. It'll be my faithful Cyma CM040 for another while yet then!

    I would not loose faith in it, i could put a bet on it that it is something small, these kind of things happen does not matter if its high end manufacturers or low end ones, very same principle with buyin a car! Once its running perfect you'll see!.

    OK, so the guys at airsoft-entrepot.fr (I live in France) got back to me and suggested I try adjusting the motor height via the screw at the bottom of the pistol grip. Hey presto! We're back in business! My faith in human kind is restored!

    I must say, I'm quite impressed by the customer service I got here. Not that you don't get the same in Ireland, but I have no first-hand experience of that :-)

    When firing the M4 I hear a very satisfying metallic ping sound when I fire a round that I haven't heard with my other AK variant replicas. Looking forward to taking it for a spin on the field.

    It's always something simple.

    Just be sure it is set correctly, you'll know if you listen carefully the "sweet spot" so to speak. Glad ya got it sorted.
