Gunsmith. Part 4 – Escape From Tarkov Guide
It’s time for another Gunsmith Guide to comply with the renovated task requirements. This time, Mechanic asks us to modify an M4A1 according to his will. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the quest description which pins us deeper into the Gunsmith lore.
Gunsmith. Part 4 Description
Sometimes I think it’s good that I got stuck here in Tarkov. The whole world feels like it’s descending into an abyss, a gaping, cold abyss. Everything has lost its meaning. People, their values, their thoughts, and their goals. They don’t know anymore why they should take a joy, work, have children. Everyone is tired from the illusion of choice they were offered all this time, from having to work and buy either blue or red cigarettes. It’s happening everywhere, in every corner of the world. And here in Tarkov, we are honest with ourselves. We see it all in an already exaggerated way, without false values, when you don’t just decide what laundry detergent is better at removing stains, but how to keep warm at night and where to find ammo for the next lowlife that wants to kill you. Only then, in such an honest society, people show their true selves. What do you think? Okay, thanks for hearing me out. Some folks requested a fully packed M4. They need a silencer, 60 round extended mag, ergonomics above 47, and a recoil sum less than 300. And mind the weight, no more than 3.8 kg, with a sighting range of 800 or beyond.

If I am missing something, you’re more than welcome to let me know in the comments below!
I keep on getting “Cannot install both 260mm AR-15 5.56×45 and MOE SL at the same time” error. Is there a way to get around this?
Weird, I tried replicating the same build… did not have that issue at all. I also used the default M4 from Peacekeeper.
I have the same problem, it says it can’t install both 260mm barrel and the MOE SL
Ohh wait there are two different MOE SL mods – only one works with the 260mm barrel FYI to other people! (it’s the greyish green one that works)
Didn’t work 🙁
It should be working unless they changed the quest requirement. I will make adjustments if necessary.
Didn’t work for me either
Hey Alex, thanks for your comment. I just rechecked the M4A1. It fully complies with the requirements. I also updated the article showing the picture. Are you sure your magazine is empty, or you have the right charging handle?
Hi, this does not work because the gun is too heavy. How did you get it under 3.8 kg?
Hey, have you checked if your magazine is empty?
I had to swap out the charging handle for the raptor, then take the foregrip and rail off and use an AFG.
My mag was empty as was my chamber.
I think they changed the weights of some of the items.
I will jump on it right now.
I just wanted to let you know that Gunsmith Part 4 is completely reworked. Let me know if you have any trouble.
