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.
Currently, we are accepting work of all types, and for the most part, no restrictions (excluding HPA). You can see our body of work clearly demonstrated on our youtube channel.
The Five in, Five out system: We have 5 slots available, you can call Tina or Richard at any time to discuss if we have spare slots. Unfortunately yes it might mean you get told no right now, but the system is designed to clear guns each week so we encourage phoning weekly to check on availability.
We have a reserve slot available, if you have purchased from our store, or have been previously worked on by us therefore have some sort of warranty commitment. We highly recommend having to hand your order number for reference so we can quickly search your order.
We have sold airsoft guns since 2016, and supported TM guns with parts for years before that. There's now enough sold that we are finding that our workshop is continuously booked out for yearly service work on AEGs, repair work, upgrades etc

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. 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 piece of paper with your name and number on it. DON'T SEND A GUN WITHOUT 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 in some cases when organized 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 a 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 (Consider Donating)
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 in whatever workshop you use. We do ask though that if you think these parts will end up in a draw gathering dust that you consider donating them to the workshop. They may have little of no value to you, but they could be the difference between fixing the next person's gun after you or not. Parts availability is an issue for gun repairs.
Who Is Working On My Guns
We have a gun technician called Andy, he does most of the prep work on builds, and we have a head technician Richard who heads up QC, Testing and design of builds.
Below is the 4 point testing we do on all RIFS before being posted back to you. We find that this covers 95% of all potential problems which might happen from gun tech work/building custom AEGs. As you can see it's extensive, time-consuming and does add time to our builds but we believe its better to send out guns with this level of testing to reduce the stress and hassle which might happen if you received a gun that wasn't up to customers' expectations. Not every gun tech will be able to offer you this level of testing and we pride ourselves on it.
1. Gearbox bedding In & Resistance Testing Prior to being built and after. We have a device specifically built for this purpose. All shimming is Perfect, all the time, every time. We don't guess, we test.
2. External range testing for range and accuracy on heavier ammo (We are testing for problems with range or accuracy).
3. Setting the hop-up at range then testing FPS with hop set (We are making sure that hop settings do not reduce or increase FPS once you receive the gun and set it up)
4. Extended rounds through the gun on the indoor range, usually with video. (We are testing for first game problems, loose parts like rails or motor connectors which might come loose from vibrations but also for gearbox reliability once adding ammo which added pressure to the mechbox system, also for any feed issues that might or could happen. To be honest we could list issues that this testing checks for all day long.
In a nutshell, testing is a pain in the arse. The easiest thing for a gun tech to do is to take apart a gun, change a part put it back together and give it back to the customer, most of us can even do that at home. What should separate professional gun techs from nonprofessionals is making sure it's done to the highest standard with no problems when the customer receives it. The truth is all this testing is hard to do and most "gun techs" will not even fire a single shot through a chrono before posting your RIF back to you or handing it back at the game day, because it all costs time and money. Just imagine paying for a RIF to be worked on and its sent back with battery wires reversed accidentally as an example as we heard one "professional" gun tech place did, that meant for that to happen, not even a single shot was fired on that gun prior to the gun being posted out after work was done. We all make mistakes, its a fact of life and to be human. Assuming mistakes never happen or pretending they don't because of gun tech arrogance is the biggest mistake we see in gun teching, they will and do which is why we came up with our 4 point checklist. We are trying our very best every gun build to make sure the consistency of high-quality builds is their gun to gun.
Standard AEG Service £99.99
This includes a full Strip down, clean of parts, and assessment of internals/externals. This is not a target work request, this would be best described as the "Full Works". We are looking for problems as we strip, clean all parts and rebuild the gearbox from scratch. Imagine opening up the gearbox, tipping it upside down, and rebuilding it our way, not the manufacturer's way. We will remove any manufacturing defaults found to the best of our ability and typically achieve gains in a place like shimming and prevent future problems. One example is that we can generally reduce amp draw by upwards of 5 or more amps over a stock manufacturer's setup even without replacing parts. Ie stock gears and bushings. The point is this a fixed-cost service that is more than just a spring change.
Targeted Repair On Gearbox or Spring Upgrade £34.99
For those not wanting the pay the cost of the "Full Service" we offer a targeted labour fee of £34.99 Inc VAT. This is a fixed fee for things like Spring Upgrades. Ie a G&G firehawk, and you just want a spring upgrade from m90 to m100. No service, no cleaning and no inspection for damage or wear other than the obvious, we won't reshim and offer any of our usual gains, we are also not responsible for any future issues unrelated to the exact work we have carried out. We want to strip and rebuild ever RIF we work on but the price point and time consumed puts some customers off, so we have decided to break the two potential services down into two services. In a Nutshell if we need to clean or reshim you will be charged our standard AEG service charge, if we can just be time effective and just change say a spring, or a broke ARL or Piston without our usual full rebuild then we have no problem charging you this lower-cost fee.
The only exception to the above might be small work like hop rubbers/barrel installs, these are typically less than 10mins and will generally be charged a small fee to be determined by us but in the realms of £10.
Standard Gas Pistol GBB Service £69.99
Standard Gas Rifle GBB Service Fee £69.99
VSR / Bolt rifle Service Fee £69.99
We often get asked for mag service pricing structure. We will Stripe and clean the mag, remove any manufacturing imperfections, fix any leaky o rings and reassemble.
£5 Per Gas GBB Pistol mag, Shotgun GBB mag & GBBR Mag.
£10 Per Gas MK23 Mag, as most customers are aware, mk23 is more time-consuming so we have doubled the price per mag.
£5 AEG mag service.
Other Things Pricing
M4 Sopmod Stock Contact Bar Modification = £24.99
This includes Dremeling, soldiering wires and deans connector, to improve but retain the TM nextgen Wireless stock system.
Magpul Stock Hollowing & Butt Pad Hollowing = £50
This covers the time for us to hollow out the butt pad on our machines, and also hollow the stock a little. It's a very messy job, which takes around 2hrs to perform to the standard we find neat and acceptable.
*Obviously there will always be edge cases, and we would always be happy to discuss things like simple barrel upgrades or stock mods separately, but as we say on average if we have to disassemble fully ie anything in the gearbox then we are spending half a day to a whole day per gun and this needs to be covered also we do have some smaller additional charges for specific extras you might buy with gun packages like deans mods or Magpul stock hollowing just as two examples*
**Please note this fee doesn't include any part costs, we would like to think it goes without saying but we are saying it anyway**
TIme frames / SPEED UP service
We have 3 levels of time frames we can offer.
1. Our standard workshop que (No additional Cost)
2. 14 day expedite Service (£99.99 Extra on top of the normal labour fee)
3. 72 hour EXPRESS service (£199 Extra on top of the normal labour fee)
Please Note: This speed up service is for customers who want to dictate there own time frames and thus you will be charged accordingly for this. Our standard workshop times we will always try our best to get through work at the highest possible speed while maintinaing standards. Do not feel like you have to pay for speed up, its there for those that personally choose not to wait and are happy to pay for the privialge.
We get asked questions about this service so below our some commonly asked ones
Q: what is the standard workshop que and how long will this take ?
A: it really depends on how many guns booked in and how fast we are cracking through them. I would say if you want a rough idea then please call us but typically 1 - 2 months sounds about right. We dont expect you to send your rif in, you can simply call instore and tina can take your details into the dairy. we will call when we have some availability. That said theres something very visual about have guns sat here waiting to be done. We always try and action based on diary spots but we will always be trying to clear the workshop of any waiting RIF.
Q: what is the expedite / speed up services for ?
A: in a nut shell, for those that want RIFs completely on there own personal time frames. Paying money is simply a way to dictate your time frame, your way. The extra money will help go towards any over time or extra costs involved in sourcing parts at a faster time frame.
Q: If i just go into the normal que, and 20 people pay for expedites, does that mean my rif will have to wait 20 guns.
A: We try our best to action expedites out of normal hours, ie we come in evenings / weekends to get them done, they are priced a certain way to mean that it shouldnt be common place to be paying for expidites. There is the possibility though that yes it may put us back a little, but unfortunately we have only so many resources and if some one is willing to pay us more for the same work then we would simply be crazy not to argee to that work, remmeber we all have lives and familys we want to go home to at the end of the day and as much as we are passionate about the work we do, our family's still need the bills paying just like you have to.7
Q: Why have an expedite service and why cant you just do all guns in 72 hours.
A: Its a necessary evil, we have a great reputation for work with a really fair price, and ultimately only so many gun techs to action said work. We would love to instantly scale with demand but life doesn't work that way, we need time to scale gun techs with demand and train them, thats if we do decide to do so, we actually really like the quality of work we do at the moment. This service is specifically designed for those that have a deadline that MUST be meet, or for those in life that have a few more pennies to spend and that hate waiting. We have been given ultimatums many times by customers, meet this deadline or i will refund. Well now we have a clear service specifically available for those on deadlines or that have left things till last min.
*We reserve the right to drift slightly over the times stated in some cases because testing can be affected by weather conditions or range availability. in these situations we will tell you but if you have a specific date in mind we always recommend you speaking with Tina on the phone to specific your exact dates needed and get it put onto our expedite board *
