ASG Ashbury Monster

So sold my air rifle and picked up an ASG Ashbury 2nd hand from ye old facebook. Don't suppose anyone has a manual or knows of where I can download one. Tried ASG website and got some datasheets but that doesn't really help at this point. Also minor issue of the bb's not making it out of the silencer occasionally. Probably widen it a bit or take it off and fit a 14mm silencer instead.

Aaaaa who needs a manual; load bbs, insert mag, rack the bolt and boom.

 

As for bbs not making it out the barrel, check that the hop up and barrel are aligned correctly.

It probably needs a new hop I was told and I think I'll put a longer barrel in that goes to the end of the suppressor but then it won't fit in the gun bag.

No need for that. A vsr g-spec has about a 30cm barrel and it's accurate as hell.

It's generally agreed upon that the optimum barrel length for Vsr systems is around 430-455mm so going a bit longer won't hurt, and it could quite likely solve the suppressor issue so worth a shot imo.

Still looking for a manual or strip down guide. On a little in house firing was getting the odd jam, probably a good greasing should fix it but been reading the magazine feeding is a bit of a fiddle so start there.

The joys of screws, found a few stripped heads so after swearing at them for a bit finally manged to remove them and loose a spring Grrrrrr. Anyway found that B&Q do a 2.5 diameter screw. Bit long but attack then end with the dremel and they fit fine. So bought a Action Army hop up unit from Airsoft World because it's VSR compatible, guess what, doesn't fit down the tube of the ashbury and the hop adjustment is on the other side of the unit so even if it did fit i'd have to drill a new hole in the body.

 

So just waiting for replacement springs (from ebay) to turn up and I can fix the issue where I lost the detent springs from the original hop up.....

 

At least it cocks properly now but still some double feeding but can't test properly yet until I fix the springs

It's in bits again. SO got to 1st skirmish, worked for crono, worked to zero, 1st game 3rd shot jammed. Kept jamming after that. This was 2 months ago so only now had time to dismantle again. What do I find, a BB proper stuck in the barrel which somehow seemed to catch the hop rubber and get that in the barrel as well. Barrel itself filthy after i'm guessing 100 shots. It's a tightbore barrel so i'm thinking getting an Orga widebore barrel. Anyone used one of these? £62 is a lot for a barrel but if it fixes the issue it's worth it.
