Yup...way outta control

100 for new gears or 4 bucks for fuses...your call.

Still a nice pic of your sister on your AV btw.

It's for making the gun idiot proof. If you're not an idiot, you don't need it.

If the gun doesn't fire and is locked up, don't hold down the trigger. If you have a fuse it will blow. If you don't have a fuse, it will heat up/melt the switch assembly.
If the gun doesn't fire and is locked up and you don't have a fuse, and you pull the trigger a few times there's no harm done.

1) If you don't know when to replace the fuse, you PROBABLY shouldn't jump the fuse or remove the fuse assembly.

2) If you don't understand the inner workings of an AEG, you PROBABLY shouldn't jump the fuse or remove the fuse assembly.

3) If you have very little skill or knowledge about electricity, you PROBABLY shouldn't jump the fuse or remove the fuse assembly.


I've seen WAY too many melted circuits & wires, swollen/melted batteries, contacts with huge arc holes burned in to it and melted/damaged accessories/furniture because someone thought they could "figure out" how to work with electricity but actually has zero to no electrical experience at all.

Personally, if I didn't have any electrical experience, I wouldn't be doing any work on something that I would shoulder up right beside my face!



IF you choose to remove the fuse assembly, the FIRST rule before connecting any battery, is to run a continuity test through the circuit to make sure there are no shorts (the gundoc should be doing this.)

SECONDLY, connect the battery and feel the wires and the battery itself. If you notice ANY increase in heat, DISCONNECT IMMEDIATELY. (A short circuit will result in a very sudden and fast increase in high heat.)

THIRD, if while using your gun, the action stops, DO NOT KEEP PULLING THE TRIGGER! If there is a stoppage of the motor, but current still keeps attempting to run through it, you can cause excess current load to melt your wires and even blow up the battery if you keep pulling the trigger!

Fuses are like condoms, you don't ACTUALLY need it, it's just backup safety.
All my AEG's are bareback, but they're clean, I know they haven't been in the same guncase as anyone else's dirty guns. Wouldn't want any of those ICS AEGTD's
