Buying from Mancraft

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, how you doing?

 

is this website reli... nah. I'm going to order from mancraft to change my spring VSR into a CO2 powered thing. Using the mancraft items and equipment. I was just wondering what will I be ordering. I know the main components, but any extras I should include?

Here's what I've got so far:

Regulator

CO2 adapter (for regulator)

mancraft SDiK for standard TM vsr

Tournament lock.

 

Will I be needing anything else? Thank you.

Spare seals for the regulator and kit (cost about £2 for each). Otherwise looks good. Perhaps possibly consider the 4mm QD as it makes removing the reg a little easier if you're using a ammo pouch on the side like most do. I've found it to me useless if you go for the in-the-stock mod like I did though because there's not enough space for it and it stops the line flexing as it needs to.

Order 1m of spare 4mm nylon macro/pneumatic line off eBay in case you screw that up. I've also found that the macro line off most eBay sellers has a slightly larger I/D than the stuff the Mancraft kit is shipped with. I'm not sure if this is because he wanted the line to be marginally more durable, but mine hasn't gone yet (the eBay stuff, that is) and the thinner walled stuff is easier to work with if you do want to get your regulator into the stock so I'd recommend it. PTFE/Teflon tape or pneumatic sealant for the cylinder head if you don't already have some.

Assume by 'standard' you mean that you're going 45o?

i've done finished a Mancraft setup in my VSR10 Gspec. Absolutely brilliant. Can't fault it.

Yep! All good, only thing I found was the Type B arm was too much for a .43 BB, ended up using an AA hop to achieve the correct hop. Now hitting 75 meters with a .45 :)

Entirely depends upon the cost of the donor. You can get second-hand JG BARs for about £90.

 

For the kit, regulator, adapter, spares and tournament lock maybe £175-180 shipped.

 

50 CO2 bulbs are about £17.

Hey prof. Thank you, I'll be sure to order some spare seals, but as you've seemed to have done, I'll be trying to go for the inside stock mod. (The stock is hollow right?) and yes, I'm going 45 degrees.

 

 

Callum, I'll let you know how things go, I should be ordering tonight.

 

Thank you everyone. I'll let you know how things pan out.

Stock is hollow but you need a few things to get it right - PM me if you want the details on how I did it. I can also share the way Dannn did his too.

 

You will need to request an extra grub screw for the regulator. Mancraft will know what you're talking about - tell them you're going to remove the pressure gauge and will need it.

All told, how much does it cost to get this kit+a donor gun and 'mandatory' upgrades, to a skirmish able state running CO2 (no scope)?

Without a donor gun, as I bought mine as a new.

 

VSR - £200

Mancraft stuff- £170

Some BBs - £15

CO2 (50 as said above) - £17

 

£412 from those prices.

'Donor gun' does not always denote second hand. :) It just means (I think), and I haven't a great analogy, that the purchase (or repurposing) was incidental to the usual reason people buy them.

 

Thanks for those numbers.

Is it just me or does mancraft sound like a gay escort agency?

Puts me off just hearing the name.

To be fair.. That is the precise reason I bought the mancraft equipment..

Hi dude, I would recommend the spare seals as well especially for the Regulator and CO2 adapter, one of the seals on my CO2 adapter was a bad one and kept leaking CO2 bulbs.

 

I would also recommend getting some Silicone oil to help the seals too, hope all goes well.

 

BTW where are you planning to put the regulator?
