As01

 

ML 310mm Crazy Jet barrel

AA Hop up unit

ML decepticon 50 + omega nub

Ares short fluted barrel

bespoke M150 spring

Hawke Panorama 4-12x40 IR Scope

AA hop wheel

450fps on .20, 320fps on .04s (1.9J)

 

Shoots far and fairly accurate but I’m not 100% happy with the accuracy so if anyone has any bucking recommendations for me to try. I’ve tried a auto bot 60 and it was shocking with that, much better with the decepticon 50 

 

Got a bespoke cylinder kit and body pin waiting to go in and a Gap trigger sear on its way from Canada

I know it sounds like a broken record but I would get a maple leaf bucking I have found that they are just the best for almost anything you are building and yeah I am not a fan of the decepticon either. but just for prosperity what range are you getting with the decepticon

Both buckings I have are maple leaf (ML) Honestly I have no idea on exact numbers, I don’t have anywhere to test further than my garden (20m) and wouldn’t really like to just guess. I’ve only skirmished it once with this bucking but I got a fair few kills and really enjoyed using it where as with the ml autobot I couldn’t hit a barn door further than 20m away (bbs we’re flying flat for a lot further just hooking left and right) and I got so annoyed with it I put the striker away. Once my new cylinder set goes in I’m going to try it again and try some different weight bbs and see what works the best

sounds almost like your hop up bucking is not properly seated I would take it apart, reinstall the Autobot just to see if it is a seating issue

Its not really half price by the time you add import duty etc it’ll work out the same as buying from airsoftpro

not bad google Jedi😀 but if you take shipping into effect then it comes in cheaper to get the one from Redwolf

It’s £105 from airsoft pro shipped, I know as I bought one a few days ago. 

 

Something at $85 on redwolf shipped to the U.K. will work out after import duty and shipping at the same money, again, I know cos I’ve done it.

O crap just realised I was looking at the American sight and that the English version (which I thought was 20 min away from me) doesn't carry the bolt 😭

Parts arrived today, here's what she looks like :)

 

Will swap the suppressor out for something that actually works, wrap the inner barrel in foam to stop it from vibrating and probably fill the stock with foam as well.

 

Can't wait to test it out this Sunday :D

While you have the gun apart, I recommend putting a tight bore inner barrel along with a maple leaf hop up rubber and nub in just to make it easier on you, as this will improve accuracy and allow you to lift even heavier bb’s, although mine happily lifts .4 with the standard hop up

Is there a specific inner barrel I should look for as I can seem to find a 550mm one

Edgi dual bore if you’re staying at that length, helps resolve to poor cylinder to barrel ratio
