Motor upgrade straight swap upgrade or?

Recommended Posts

Basically I'm looking to get a specna arms as a base and replacing the spring, inner barrel and also install a flat hop/r hop (undecided yet on what type of hop) 

 

My question would be if I toy with the idea of changing stock motor would there be anything else I may need to do or would it be ok just to do a straight swap without any potential issues?

 

(I know that for a lot there is a phrase of "don't fix what's not broken", but I enjoy tinkering and generally like to learn more about what makes things "tick" 😝)

 

Thanks

Should be a straight swap but you may need to adjust the motor height (which is a piece of piss).

 

As far as the hop mods go, try a Maple Leaf rubber first. 90% of the performance of flat/r hop without all the tedious setting up.

Cool thanks for the suggestion. Will try that out 👍

 

It's what I have in my specna along with a ZCI inner barrel. Works a treat but make sure you get the Maple Leaf Omega nub to go with it.

 

It's about to get a Maxx CNC hop up unit (with the built in tracer) so I'll let you know how that goes as they suggest using it with the Maple Leaf rubber!

Well I had my eyes on a prommy barrel as it seems a lot of people rate it. However would like to hear how you get on with your current build.👍

Prometheus barrels are great, but they are expensive.
