The Eagles Nest has landed. Welcome to our workshop page for the Eagle6 Airsoft workshop, the Eagles Nest. We are Located Near Boston In Lincolnshire. We've been working on and upgrading tokyo marui Next Gen guns for over 10 years and Non Next gen guns for 4 years before that, so 14 years of gun teching. We can offer anything from repairs and servicing all the way through to custom builds. By specialising in Tokyo Marui we can offer you faster turn around times and lower costs because we are so experienced at MARUI. We love Marui and we try our very best to put that into each and every build for you. We can work on other AEG brands but please check with our workshop availability as each gun we work on requires designing, research and specialist parts, Sometimes the enquiry's we get for work just are not realistic with the time we have and parts available but it never hurts to ask, and also why it works so well us making sure we have all the parts and upgrades for just one brand instock, we get to be very good and quick for that brand.
We look at Gun Teching the way the cooking industry operates. Some chefs are so famous that a restaurant will be popular just because of the chef that works there, with customers coming to visit that restaurant for that chef, that chef designs the menu, designs each dish and then cooks it to perfection, that chef has to organise his prep cooks and sous chefs below him to make sure all the work is to that chefs standards. This is probably the best analogy to explain gun teching, with each gun tech out there worth his salt attempting to make a name for him self. Our Head "chef" is Richard Young, his attention to detail, willingness to push his own boundaries and support of the airsoft industry is well known in. Our builds are very much grounded in whats realistic but with an eye for performance, we know we have lots of customers wanting to be served, to keep using the food analogy we have to balance what we are trying to achieve with our bold visions, we like to think of our selves as a nice restaurant not a Mcdonalds but not so elite that the meal prices most people out of being able to visit. We try and design our gun menus and each gun dish for you personally based on your needs but also realise many of you are after the same thing so we have built a menu with our level packages, we also make sure the work we take on doesn't end up making you wait so long you get fed up and leave, we have to balance your crazy ideas of whats possible in your head with what we know is actually feasible in a decent realistic amount of time, our price caps of 5 hours can be easily abused which affects other waiting customers so sometimes we just have to pass on the opportunity of cooking certain meals. You as a customer will no doubt try different restaurants, but we hope you meal you get with eagle6 is an enjoyable one for you that you dont have to wait too long for it to served.
Our Current waiting time is estimated at - 1 Month as of 22/1/19
As of the 4th of Feb, Richard will be taking long term sick leave due to a spinal fusion & decompression surgery, dean will be stepping in to take over all tech conversations and tech work till Richard comes back to continue leading the work shop. Richard apologies as i know eagle6 is part in parcel with his high standards of work and attention to details but he has been working closely with dean for a year in anticipation of this and is confident dean will do a great job with builds while hes away. We still plan on having Richard available on a skype 1 - 1 basis from his bed after his operation. Richard will be back! get it? back? :P

Please include just the gun, we have test mags and batteries, unless you specifically want us to service mags at extra cost or test them specifically. We have seen poor feeding caused by bad bbs so many times. Eagle6 always recommends Nuprol bbs. These have been tested by us as feeding flawlessly.
Please Download and print off this Form. Include this form or at the very least a peice of paper with your name and number on. DONT SEND A GUN WITH OUT PROOF OF WHO OWNS IT!!! so many guns look the same and it wastes our time trying to find out who has sent us a gun by trolling through old messages and some cases when organised by phone we have no info on who sent it.
Please fill this in with as many details as seem relevant. Ideally at the minimum we need name, phone number, site fps limit, requested time frame for completion (please dont feel bad if this date is soon, its only a request which we will try our best to meet if we can, we prefer to have more information than less). Please fill in the work to be done section. You can just bullet point tasks. If you are sending any parts in please add these to the parts provided box.
Your Old Parts
After any repair or upgrade work Eagle6 returns all parts to you, the customer, for clarity of what has been installed, plus some spare parts customers want back to sell or keep. This should ALWAYS be the case, and if you are using another workshop that isn't returning your parts, they either need to be giving you a discount or it's technically a theft. Would we love to keep the parts? Of course we would. We can't sell most, BUT some could be a life saver for a customer and helps our workshop be faster. We have customers missing tiny bits on guns all the time, so please consider DONATING your old parts to our workshop parts bin. They will be put in this bin just "in case". Next time you send your gun in it could be you that needs 1 little tiny part and now you have to pay for a complete TM part at a regular price just for one little bit from a set or wait 6 months while we source it from TM. Sharing is caring, people. Have a thought for the next guy.
We will also consider buying your TM parts if NEW only, as long as you don't mind an insulting low ball offer, because if it's being removed it's usually not a popular part. We do upwards of 10 - 20 guns a week, if we bought them all, we would have loads, but we could offer a little discount if they are of no use to you. Lately we have been offering free shipping if you leave all your old original new parts from a new build, please enquire with richard or tina if you would like to take us up on this offer.
We work on a £20 + VAT per hour labour basis currently. With a Cap on our maximum charge of 5 hours, IE if it takes 15 hours you will only get a charge of 5 hours. With think our prices are extremely resonable and if anything in the future may go up to 25 as we are so busy. Please see below for some examples of potential work with estimates of how long they would take.

Hop Rubber, Nub and barrel install = 30mins - 2hr depending on gun

Awaiting Work: This can be a little broad but basically means we have recieved it and its awaiting a slot in the workshop to start work. There are no parts waiting.
In Progress: On work bench
Awaiting Parts: This means we have ordered parts and they will be with us soon, at which stage it will move to awaiting work.
Awaiting Testing: Sometimes we complete work but dont have time to fully test, testing is part of the workshop process, its time consuming but important to stress each gun.
Passed Testing, Awaiting Collection: in a nut shell its ready for the bill to be paid and either collected or posted back.
Failed Testing: Sometimes guns fail testing. its why testing is so important. If its failed testing this means basically the same as awaiting work, as soon as a slot comes back we will fix and move back to awaiting testing.
Sometimes multiple stages can happen in a day, sometimes we will juggle builds based on time and parts.
You can openly see what we are dealing with at any given moment. We do not charge for any que jumping, instead we try and work with you the customer when you have tight ETAs and we CAN prioritise "emergency" work accordingly, but please give a thought when you ask us to bump your gun becuase of a game this weekend, becuase it means someone before you now has to wait. I will leave it to you to decide if your request based on the table above and the time at which you gave us your gun is fair to jump to the top.
