"I've had this gearbox shell for 6 years and it still looks new. Ive upgraded all my internals to 100% Lonex and I have not ever had 1 issue. I have taken it apart many many times to clean, (once every 30,000 rounds or so) and re grease up everything. Ive probably put over 200,000 rounds through it and its still going strong. I would highly recommend this shell...

"Running a 25-26 rps at 420 fps on an11.1 lipo is extreme no wonder Donald's gearbox broke. Especially if you didn't radius the gearbox and fixed the angle of engagement. My shell has survived so far. Caution this shell will not fit every receiver as I learned but it does fit G&P lower receiver and any other lower with similar dimensions, it will not fit Classic Army and similar lower receivers. It has done its job, can't complain.

"This is a great gearbox, really good quality. BUT if for any reason you donít want to use the bearings already on, it is a nightmare getting the bearings out. So for that, just 4 stars

"Pros:
It's a version 2 mech box with nice 8mm bearings
Cons: it's a tight fitting piece of junk! I bought 2 of these and they only came with bearings in one half of the mech box. Once the replacements arrived I installed one with a m130 spring and 16:1 gears with a high torque jg motor. Although the mech box went together a little tight when empty due to coating when the gun was together it shot a flawless 25-26 rps at 420 fps on an11.1 lipo, life was good! Then a week later after taking the field and running through about 200 rounds shot quality went to pot. Upon inspection I discovered my newly built Lonex box cracked across both halves! Disappointment! Buy this if you need a mech box for $50.00 if you need a good mech box buy something else! I have submitted for RMA for both I purchased. I'll let you know how they handle this.
Bottom line, buy a G&P that's what my other 10 guns have and that's what any one I build in the future will have! Lonex boxes are junk!
