  1. Quick update.....all parts are ordered and final piece, the trigger unit, is on the way to me next week. ive had to wait 3 weeks for the next run of springer custom works triggers to be made somim hoping they operate as good as they look. can finally start the build when that arrives. :-) . Ooh.....managed to get some 0.4s from the Netherlands in the end. Skirmshop.nl. ... ordered Thursday afternoon and arrived Saturday lunchtime....awesome service!
  2. Ordered an AA 6.03 barrel in stock length. Just the piston, barrel spacer, cylinder head pad and some nice bbs to go. steering towards 0.4s for now.....can't find geoffs bios in stock tho :-(
  3. One more nood question on barrels. i ordered the ML bucking when I ordered the JG....the stock barrel appears to be bridged, however, I thought I'd need an in Bridgend barrel? the action army barrels are being pictured as having a bridge and some other brands show without. Wtf do I need .??
  4. Small progress..... ordered a JG from airsoft pro, ordered the action army hop chamber, spring and guide top. gone with 70' maple leaf bucking. just need to find a trigger set in stock (wish I could justify the PDI set but can't). Gonna have to wait for the action army set to come back in stock or the custom s set. still to decide on a barrel, also not sure if I need to go with new cylinder too.
  5. Problem is, i started at the airsoft pro trigger set for £80, then decided on the action army set at £110 which needs a spring and guide adding to it so essentially £140. Going to the Layla's trigger takes me to £200 plus £30 for guide and spring over the airsoft pro kit.....I appreciate it's gonna be better, but it's getting very expensive. springer custom triggers should be back in three to four weeks I'm told....may have to be patient.
  6. Been trying to source the springer custom trigger myself as I'm struggling to get the action army set anywhere. Both seem to be a problem to source. :-(
  7. Love the simplistic answer, wish I could look at things at a more basic level sometimes :-) thanks again, gonna go for the gspec TM (basically as I can't find the JG anywhere) and the action army trigger set, hop, and then decide on barrel.
  8. Thanks for the advice.... what made you go for the gspec over the pro?
  9. Thanks for that, it seems the strip down and even upgrade process while working on these guns should be a simple-ish task. I think my confusion at the moment is understanding what parts work together and the consequences of marching particular parts. you touched on it in that video which is good....especially around the barrel bore. i listed the parts I was going with in this thread, but have since changed plans to an action army trigger set with piston. I'm sticking with the hop chamber option, but can't decide on a barrel and length. This is also confusing me into wether I go gspec or pro. i was considering gpspec and putting a 6.03-6.05 430mm barrel in but this has come from reading the 100s of threads already out there and getting confused about what's best.
  10. Yeah, definitely! I've found a video where a guy is taking thru a complete action army upgrade on a vsr pro...I'm assuming the gspec is much the same. I'm in two minds about the gspec or pro now. Need to look at the lengths as I like the idea of a supresssor.....also prefer the looks but function must come first
  11. Weird, I asked the question about parts on the uk Facebook page and was advised there that the airsoft pro trigger was stiff....was advised to go with the action army or Laylax set. I'm sure there will be guides on how to fix it.
  12. Thanks, so the 303 would make an easier install. Reading some of the stickies on the airsoftsniper forum, the longer barrel seemed to be more accustom to particular bb weights and power combinations. I may not have read it correctly tho
  13. I've come into a little spare cash and fancy doing a sniper rifle build. I've not long been into airsoft and bought an aeg but fancy something different. I've got other rifles (non airsoft) so thought I'd get a VSR. i was on the look out for a JG but can't find them in stock so need to bite the bullet and get the TM. so far on my list, I have these parts.....am i about right or way off? Airsoft pro trigger set (trigger, piston, spring and guide) - £80 airsoft pro cylinder and cylinder head - £50 (I can only find the silver version, I'm assuming they are the same as the steel black one.?) action army hop chamber - £45 action army silver streak 6.03 430mm barrel - £38 barrel spacers - not decided yet. - £15? 70' maple leaf bucking - £10-15? Would i need a different suppressor adaptor to accommodate the longer barrel or just widen the stock one? From what I've read, the slightly longer barrel is the right choice rather than sticking with the 300mm?
  14. I will strip it down again and have another look. I'm going to look at getting a stronger spring installed too. Now it's settled around the 305-310 mark, I think the next spring will give me a worthwhile boost.
  15. It's not as bad on semi, however you do notice a flier in every 5-6 shots. Ive been using 0.25s and have done since owning it.....was fine and should be impacted by the weather so much in the garden at that distance? You can see the last but one shot veer 3-4 inches left.....I know what you mean about comparing it to air rifles, but it was so bob on in my first few games that I'm noticing it. Getting feed issues to which is annoying me but may be a mag issue (although it's the mags which cam with the gun)
