Great and quick service.  Excellent communication as well.  I would highly reccomend Chavez for repairs over bigger companies.

Are you able to service and or upgrade the PSG-1? I'm interested in having a tune up and upgrade done but I haven't found anyone (except when I was in Japan) who can work on this rifle. Please help if you can.

What else grows wild in mexico other then Cacti? 

That and my guns sting like a (you know what) too.

I do this to:

1.) Help new players that aren't experienced enough to do an upgrade or repair on a gun.

2.) It funds my airsoft habit.  Its not much money as most goes into parts but it pays for a bag of bb's every now and then.

Chavez had a daughter on Thanksgiving, he might not be available much for a while. Try PMing him, he's more likely to respond to that.

If not, there are a bunch more techs around who could also do it for 'ya.

ALso, if you're looking for price quotes, it usually helps to include the model of gun, the manufacturer (some techs charge more for clones 'cuz the gearboxes are sloppier and more difficult to assemble without six hands), and what kind of spring (techs occasionally place a surcharge on anything over such-and-such spring rate because heavier springs can be trickier to install, while lighter springs are less of a hassle).

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Congrats Chavez! and thanks Red tail, but its a JG M4 s-system and the spring I would be dropping into it is a m120.

I do accept shipments.  Ask Dash.  We've done several upgrades this way. 

ALL:  Im now back from my hiatus and am doing gun work again.  I also now have access to Duracoat finishes and can offer custom finishing.  If you have a specific pattern or color in mind feel free to PM and ask.
