    So today it was raining slightly and I was outside with my airsoft gun (G&G Combat Machine m4, if that helps). I guess the internals cought a bit of water and stopped working. I'm positive it was because of the water. My question is, if I leave this thing for acouple days, is there any chance of it working again? Thanks.


    Sorry about this retarded as fuck OP, i'm very nervous about this

    Take the battery out, let it sit, and use the questions thread.

    Generally after playing airsoft in the rain I like to take my guns apart and dry it off completely to prevent it from rusting. In your case I'd try the rice method that iFail said.

    If you use the rice method make damn sure you relube the crucial parts of your gun.
    Not so much because the rice will absorb even that, which isn't the case at all really, but because of the debris that the rice will leave on it like dust will just remove any lubrication it has.

    Another tip is, you take it apart and put all components that you believe are wet in a bag with rice, and put it in the oven for a while, like 30 minutes or so, in a not-so-high (not so high that anything will melt) temperature (like, 75 degrees Celsius, or NOT more than 190 degrees Fahrenheit).
    I did this with a friends iPhone which he had fell in a lake with, works perfect now.
    OP don't do this, rice will work perfectly fine. All that this would do is make it dry more quickly but at the risk of damaging a gun. It may have worked for his Iphone, but and iphone isn't a mechanical system that has various moving parts of different materials that may or may not be sensitive to heat.

    Yeah, yeah, true.
    Also forgot about silicone stuff that might dry.
