Version 2 Gearbox - Basic Upgrades?

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) topic.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I want to upgrade my SCAR-L and would like to know, and have some links to, parts that could be used to upgrade my stock gearbox. As I said it's a V2 and anything that could help such as air nozzles, piston heads, cylinders or even gears is greatly appreciated :)

 

Thank in advance,

 

Ben

im no expert, i was told by people to make sure you have metal gears which most do but to also make sure they are shimmed.

after that i think the upgrades depend on what you want the rifle to do??

yer i talked to a few people and they said making sure your gears rotate smoothly is a good start as makes them last longer and engage with the other gears better.

depending on what you want it to do. an upgraded spring will up your FPS by a fair bit.

have you thought about a new barrel and hop up unit?? they will increase your fps a little possibly but they will def increase the accuracy and distance.

Yeah, I was looking at some tight bores but I hadn't even given hop ups a second thought

well a better hop up with give better spin on the bb giving it abit more distance and more accurate so its pretty important

agreed, the very last thing you should upgrade (I say that in the loosest possible terms, when most people upgrade their gearboxes what actually happens is they break them) is the gearbox, invest in a tight bore barrel and a decent hop-up unit and rubber first, it'll probably get you the increase in performance you're after!

maybe start a new thread about your scar instead and then people with scars will look at it
