Congrats and thank you!
When you receive the rifle, please ensure you have received all the correct items to your order so we can correct any mistakes if there are any. If your rifle is equipped with a computerized MOSFET, it will be pre-programmed for the best settings for your gun so changing any setting could create further issues. If you would like to change any settings, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before use, make sure to fully balance charge your batteries safely. You will also need to make sure that you are only loading high quality .28 Gram or heavier BBs in your magazines for all our rifles. We only suggest using PTS EPM Magazines with our M4 compatible Airsoft rifles, as they are the magazines we build our rifles to utilize most effectively (magazine recommendations for other types of rifles will be mentioned otherwise). Other non prescribed magazines and BBs can cause issues in regards to overall performance with your rifle. Once your included Batteries are safely charged and your correct magazines are filled with the right BB, you are ready to fire your Airsoft Gun.
First Steps. Make sure you are in a safe place, away from people when using an Airsoft gun and you are wearing eye protection. Plug in the battery to the rifle with the rifle set to SAFE and without touching the trigger and if you have a GATE Titan installed, you should hear three beeps before you are ready to start firing. Then firmly insert your magazine into the gun and once you move the selector switch from the SAFE position, your Airsoft gun will be able to shoot. When first shooting, you may notice that your shots may be inconsistently inaccurate and your motor grip is hot. Do not worry, there is a break in period of up to 5000 rounds. As you near closer to the end of the break in period, you will notice your shots will get more accurate as the R Hop sets in and excess lubricant exits the air nozzle, and your motor will not get as hot.
Sometimes your first 10-15 shots will also be very slow or not go far at all before firing properly. That is normal as the high quality magazines sometimes carry a lot of tension and that tension will tilt the air nozzle and cause misalignment. If your rifle is having that issue, simply wear in the magazines by leaving them filled with BBs for roughly a week or so until they are good to go. Otherwise if you are at a field attending a game or event, fill your magazines 3/4 of the way full.
For rifles equipped with our R-Hop assembly. the hop up wheel on most of our rifles rotates downward to apply more hop. If you think your rifle is not shooting far enough, try dialing the hop up wheel completely “On” then with .28 Gram BBs, you should see them being considerably “over hopped” and that means your Hop up is functioning correctly. For the best adjustment, max out the hop up wheel and simply reduce the amount of hop being applied little by little, test firing in between without any sights/optics until your BBs are barely overhopping.
