  6. anywhere i can buy m4 stock adapter for Krytac vector?

    1. rocketdogbert

  7.  idea what kind of internals APS UAR uses? because i know its modified v3 gearbox but how much of it is modified.

      STD v3 stuff inside, nothing bespoke I think

  8. you would need 16:1 or 13:1 gears, steel tooth piston, mosfet( most important part) and motor if its not torque motor. After that you could short stroke piston with gears, get your gearbox shimmed, and fix AOE( angle of engagement) - this would make sure your pistol lasts longer with the gears. I have setup with shs 13:1 gears/ steel tooth piston, gate titan mosfet. gears are shimmed and aoe is fixed with airseal. i get around 310 fps with 45rps at max(even tho i cant use that in my local field, 45 rps looks like a white laser coming out of your gun. I empty my 160 mid caps in few seconds )
  9. I have this crazy idea of designing bullpup AEG shell which would use v2 or v3 gearbox. I have a 3D printer at hand so only would need your suggestions. There is not alot of choice when it comes to bullpups on the market so i thought why dont i try and design one and print prototype. So far im trying figure out the way of having mag release at the front and fire selector closer to the trigger.

      I mean, like any v2/v3 there are more and less reliable ones. But it will be a real challenge to get a v2/v3 installed with the motor being where it is. You can MOSFET a LMG gearbox too. Im sure there are plenty of people on here with high end LMGs who could tell you

    3. matas17


      what kind of mosfet does LMG gearbox take if you have any idea?

      right now trying to find a way to make trigger contacts extend to the front of a guy to reach the trigger.

    4. SeniorSpaz87


      I mean, you can probably wire one right in. Not sure why you couldnt...

  10. so my friend gave away his APS UAR to me, since he quit sport and moved to Australia. I've used it for a day on Saturday and it feels bit sluggish on fire rate. Anyone has any idea what kind of a motor it uses. Is it a short type or a long type motor. Don't want to take a gun apart since have no idea or instructions on how to do it.


    Thank you

      It is a SHORT motor

      basically it is an AK type gun internals with a linky trigger

      So you will have a good bit of long trigger pull coz a two piece trigger becomes 3 piece with trigger link


      There are two types only difference is where battery goes:


      v1 - battery up front with a long stick typebattery


      v2 - for last couple of years so more common model is rear wired and battery at the back


      Strip down:

      @padraigthesniper i shot it with 7.4v lipo since i never use nimh batteries. Mainly use 7.4v or 11.1v .


      @Sitting Duck thanks alot now i will know what sort of motor to buy and i reckon id be able to do some sort of mod to reduce trigger pull like i did on my mates a&k vector. It had long trigger pull, shortened it by around 20% .


    4. matas17


      @Sitting Duck you know what kind of internals APS UAR has. like what version internals. Or is it all v3 inside and no v2?

  11. anyone can recommend sub £150 sniper for me to buy. Not looking for something insane or over the top expensive. just something food out of the box.

      Quote *Infact just buy a TM MK23, it may as well be reclassified from a pistol to "One handed compact sniper rifle". Got done by one loads at Dorking the other week. * wasnt me @L3wisD honest guv, not this time at least... Just you wait though mwahahahaha

    3. proffrink


      @matas17You can buy M40 stocks for the VSR, but your budget is too low to have everything. Get something that performs well and then make it look good later.

    4. CaptainDumbass


      Buy an AEG man hahaha

    might try and cut one of the spare springs i have to replace recoil spring
  13. matas17


    the whole recoil system, gets usual clean up once in a while . recoil shock itself looks good. I bought new cqb spring and recoil spring to replace old ones. because lw airsoft cut recoil spring... that seemed to increase abit but not to original 324fps.
  14. matas17


    what do you mean? if you could explain in more detail
