Well, go ahead and grab some coffee and hit play on that Spotify Playlist
Hello guys, Cheers from Panama City, Panama. (Central America just in case)
i bought my MTR16 a couple of months ago and was waiting to be a least on half of the build i am planing to share with you guys the excitement, the process and the findings with the journey
So, i have played once on a game and also several practices with my team as you can notice some scratches.
I have to say that is one of the very best GBBRs that i have tested, i have shot with KWA LM4s, GHKs M4 and G5 and this is one of the most quality out of the box that i can feel.
Of course upgrades are necessary to give that personality and punch that the gun deserves to have
I play Milsim / Hardcore Milsim like 90% and even tho my main roll on my team is to be a sniper ( got a JG BAR10 tune up with Action Army Parts hitting 400 fps with 0.43 @3.07 Joules if you are interested)
i really wanted to go for the GBBR experience by being DMR/ Assault when i have the change or not allowed to play sniper at some areas or specific games. also being one of the instructors for some drills on the Practices with my team is great to have the your very own mainstream gun :v
Vanilla version of the gun was like this
My Limits for DMR are 2.23J máx. – 490 FPS
and for Assault are 1.60J máx. - 415 FPS
did some research since i was point blank on how GBBRs worked, had a clue but definitely not a Pro. decided to go for the ORGA LEX05 6.05 410mm for the inner barrel with the Modify TAN hop up and SixG nub ( classic copy paste from the 1st pages of the thread)
Dont you love that outer barrel? i really enjoy this design
Since the MTR comes with a 250mm even tho it came on a 16" barrel ( a shame on my opinion) i decided to go full on outer barrel length. this barrel was a PAIN to get. since there is not much sites that sell them ( as far as i know) tried but finally got it from French (i believe) with POWAIR6.
here you can appreciate the good work of Dave. fitting perfectly and in symphony with the Modify TAN that has a singular density... perhaps i will try the Maple Leaf Autobot and Decepticon here since i use them on my Sniper having good results just to see or confirm the findings of Wolf1 on the first pages of the thread regarding the hop up buckings.
something i have to mention is that TM put Thread Lock on everything on the barrel, from the muzzle break to the NUTS! wink wink.... it was a PAIN in the ass to unscrew all the nuts from the M-Lok barrel, took hammer, a nail, and 4 arms to hold it and being able to take it apart... i though i would damage the inlays for the tool with it.. and to put it back was a pain too. while hammering the middle section, hit o the threads for the outer nut and was almost impossible to put back in.
So after installing these, i literally got NO changes on the chrono neither FPS or JOULES change with these. i was expecting at least some 20-40 fps up due to the length of the barrel. but it looks like what i gain on length, i loose it on the bore of the barrel. since is a 6.05. i originally was looking for a 6.01 but was not able to find anyone anywhere. well there was some 6.01 but most are 250 or 370 something around that, but for me that was a Nope.
but yes, i had an ace under my sleeve...actually two
to Power up i decided to go with some options on so called "high flow valves"
on your Left (red one just in case) you will find the G&P CNC Enhanced Nozzle Valve Set 5.0 and pay attention to the numbers since they change with the number. the higher the number the higher the power. but it still adaptable with this part
on your Right you will see the Dynamic Precision Enhanced Nozze Valve.
with the Dynamic Precision i felt a little bit happy since i see some hope to power up this thing
so with the Dynamic Precision Valve i went almost 100 fps up with .50 joules up. and by the way this is with NO other Nozzle Enhanced part but the Dynamic Precision Enhanced Sealing Buffer which i find better quality than tm's original, also a bit tougher
for a DMR that previous reading was still weak for what i was looking for, but dont worry , remember i got 2 aces and this time went full hardcore with no measurements or holding on the go
I went with the G&P Nozzle and i have to tell you that i really was expecting, not poor quality but at least mediocre from this coming from the G&P since is a mid level quality company and it actually leave me with my jaw drop to the ground. you will see why
but did not tried just the Nozzle, but went also with some upgrades for the Nozzle parts from Dynamic Precision...
A full set of Enhanced Nozzle Spring Sets
there is the Valve Spring, the Guide Spring, the Nozzle Return Spring
they feel really good quality and the return spring is some tighter from the original and that helps on the performance
installed the G&P Valve and used the Valve Stopper ( i will call this part like that since i forgot the real name) all the way from what i thought could be the max power set up... these valves comes with this so you can tune up on 3 different settings. Min- Mid- And Max power.
and i got... this monstrosity
520 Fps with 0.20 at 2.52 Joules, and this is not the 1st reading, i forgot to take a picture of the first shots. it was at 2.8 joules almost at 545 fps
this might be nothing compared other builds here that i know could be shooting higher and harder but for me was joy, i was astonish with the results
Sadly it was TOO HOT, i actually over pass my team and also marshals limits
then i decided to put it on the minimum settings, and i went down all the back like back with the TM stock valve.
forgot to take a picture of this, since i started to worry, it was getting late on the day and i was worry that the last resort. the MID section will not be either enough or will still by over passing the limits......
so dismount and put everything back with the MID section... and at this point i was so frustrated that i laterally was making plans to sell the gun with everything if it does not worked out ... almost like a rage quit when you loose those ranked matches at league of legends due to some troller's fault
so back to topic... my limits are 2.23 Joules - 490 FPS and then finally i was.... drums roll!!!
JUST ON FUC^%&(* point!!!!
i almost cried when i saw these!! nothing was in vain!! all those over time hours of receiving calls from Kumar Patel with a problem on his Outlook were worth it!!!!
Finally hit this mark and im really satisfied with these results. the readings were very consistent.
i have not decided with what weight i will play... thinking about some .36s or .40s depending on the results .
Additionally have some extra parts.
i went with the Angry Gun Hard Kick Recoil Buffer. and i got to tell you that yes there is a lot of difference on this. even tho its angry gun, it fits just fine!
and by the way that whitey creamy thing is PTFE Grease.... and yes you might be thinking i am a dumb already, but i have still not find out if the is good or not for it. i cleaned it out already... putted also some on the bolt carrier but i dont think is good there so cleaned out too....
can you tell me what you use to clean and lubricate yours?
so wrapping up i am very happy with this DMR/Assault build.... half way trough it. now moving o the externals
if you guys have any questions or would like me to post the part list that i used including the externals you see on the picture so far just let me know or reply to the post with your inquiry!
I also want to say thanks to all of those who have shared their finding, experiences and knowledge on this thread, they have been of great help, hoping to make it bigger and better!! to all of you keep up with the good work !!
