    THE TM MWS thread

    I’ve had the chance to use the Modify X-range in a few games now. It’s held up fine over the 4 or 5 hundred bbs I’ve put through it. I’ve just started using .36’s (up from the .30’s I was using) at about 2 joules and that’s working really nicely with the bucking. One thing I’m noticing as maybe a negative is that with this bucking the shot seems very sensitive to hop up setting. Moving the hop wheel just one click has a big effect on the bbs movement. I’m not *sure* it’s more sensitive than before (with the original bucking), but I seem to be noticing it more. But, when I have the hop just right, I’m getting great consistency at 35 yards.

    Looks normal to me, too. Also, anywhere you see wear like that is a great place to work in some good grease. I like grease that ends up dry so it doesn’t attract dirt.

    Sorry to hear LVOA-D is leaving. I’m jealous of this kit! I love working on GBBs, and you’re right that putting one together like this will help learn the system. Have fun!

    I have an update on the new Modify X Range buckings. I received the two I ordered (both 65 degree) and installed one on my MTR16. I have a PDI barrel and an Angry Gun NPAS nozzle in it (not the full AG bolt carrier though). I took some shots at about 1.5 joules with .30g bbs. The bucking is probably not completely broken in yet, though I don’t have a lot of experience with silicone buckings so I don’t know how much of a break in period, if any, is needed. Anyway, I took shots at 30 and 50 yards. Once I had the hop up adjusted, I was able to consistently hit the same spots on trees (a little higher than my crosshairs at 30, a little lower at 50). What impressed me most was how little horizontal deviation there was between shots. Any given shot might be an inch or two high or lower, but they were very, very close horizontally. If I can, I’ll shoot at some targets at range and I’ll be playing with this on Saturday, so I’ll update once I have a bunch of rounds through it in the field.

    AG is based in Hong Kong, so it could be held up at that end. If it’s already left China, is it possible that it’s being delayed in Customs? I’m in the US, and that sometimes happens here.

    I ordered a nub from Dave and received it. He even followed up in mid-October to make sure everything was good. (It is. The nub is a simple upgrade, well-machined, and works great.) Dave - I hope everything is ok man! A GBB will vary FPS depending on temp. An NPAS or the Angry Gun nozzle are good ways to be able to quickly adjust your FPS depending on weather. Also, I could be wrong, but that looks like a Maple Leaf Autobot or Decepticon 70 degree bucking to me. If it is, that’s a good bucking. Hi everyone. Have you all seen the new Modify X-Range buckings? They’re silicon, which I’m a little wary of. But the design looks interesting - maybe good airseal (although I can get that with teflon tape anyway) and they have an interesting design for the contact area - a split section to center the bb followed by a solid section to impart more spin. Just curious if they actually work well in real life.

    Wow! That's impressive. Couple questions: For comparison, what sort of consistency were you getting with the stock nozzle? How long are you pausing between shots? And, do you mean that all of your shots are at (say) 300 + or - 1fps, or that you're consistently losing 1 fps per shot (so, 10 shots means dropping from 300 to 290, roughly)?

    Gotta second the prommy barrel. It’s pricey, but if you’ve already bought into the MWS maybe you’re up for that.

    Dave has a smart suggestion there. I just got the armorer’s wrench in place and tapped it with a brass hammer until it started to move. I managed to mar the soft aluminum of the barrel nut that way but it did come off.

    I used vice grips to hold it while I punched out the pin, but really any decent clamp will do. Just make sure to use a rag or something between the clamp and the nozzle piece to prevent damage.

    Quick tip for those who don’t already know. You can get YouTube to translate videos like that MWS takedown one into English. I think you need to be on a computer - at least it doesn’t work on my iphone. Go to settings and turn on captions in Chinese (or whatever language). Then go back in to settings and their should be a “translate” option that will now automatically translate the Chinese captions into English. It’s not perfect but enough to get a sense of what the guy is saying.
