  1. Due to the de-evolution of modern airsoft parts. Any of these could be your issue. Gear Box rails are not consistent and too high at back of mechbox. Piston guide rails are too thick and bind on mechbox guide rails. ^The above two issues can be exacerbated if they both exist. Spring is too long, or of an inferior design and is bottoming out preventing piston from moving back. Motor is of a low quality and can't wind the spring back, exacerbated buy a redundant double bearing system. Battery is of a low quality or performance level that can't supply the "AMPS" to turn over the mechbox for a complete cycle. Piston is not cupping over spring guide due to flex in gear box channel.
  2. Bad casting...you will have to try and get a replacement from AS
  3. Sounds like the threads don't match. Have you tried any other bottle?
  4. Getting another gearbox is your call. But, on Airsoft Society another user is trying to make a Lonex shell fit in a VFC....it's not going so well. Circle back to my comment about Airsoft devolving... Video can help...how about posting some videos.
  5. Unknown..you provided no pictures for comparison or examination with your issue. If we can't see it we can't definitely say. I would say remove the bearings on the spring guide and inspect and test component compatibility before you put the box back together.
  6. No Station is not out of business. They are just more "online" oriented and not retail oriented any more. They are also having staffing issues. I know a guy that was just hired there. If it's not threading down...it's not made right. Have you done a visual inspection to make sure the threads match? Sadly the unit you got is sold by a distributor in Ramsey MN...
  7. That is a heavy Rocket spring if it's shooting a .23g at that speed. I am wondering if your chrono is set to the wrong speed. Why are you looking to change the Cylinder?
  8. Not much response on this Forum Greg. It went down a couple of years back and the people that left went to Arnies and Society. The answers you got on AS would be the same as from people here. But to reiterate...Easy maintenance is taking out the barrel and seeing if the hop-up rubber is intact and not cracked. If you didn't mess with the mechbox...you can leave it in stock form and just note that when you sell it.
  9. Here is another thing...the Modern Airsoft Industry has devolved. Nothing is made "TM Compatible" any more. There are no standards, minimal QC and definitely fleece the "new user" is the norm. Nothing is slap togther simple or "you can just buy a part to fix/replace that...". Those that do say something like that is not very "experienced" in the matter of "fixing" airsoft. So, with that let's address your next set of symptoms. I have never heard anyone describe a whirring sound that pulses twice. Please provide more detail. Does it pulse twice and then stop? Where is the noise originating from? Motor? MOSFET (is there a mosfet)? Have you testing piston compatibility? I.e...is it to fat for the mechbox?
  10. Double Bearing system is beyond redundant. It's actually stressing your mechbox more than normal and is contributing to mechbox lockup. Spring is bottoming out. This can cause the issue you are having with along with the bearing not consistently fitting into the piston. Spring is operating at a higher spring rate due to 2cm of precompression. Makes your motor work harder...etc... Causes a higher FPS than anticipated. Can lead to mechbox failure, common with V2 and in the cold.
  11. A True M130 will not give you 440-450FPS. It should be about 410-420FPS. That is if you are chronoing with a .20 bb to get those FPS. Or you have a really bad M130 spring and it's more like a M140. Which could lend to the FPS issue you are having. Then the question that needs to be answered is do you have a Hard spring or a Soft Spring. A hard spring is usually more expensive and comes at the settled FPS. A Soft spring is a spring that compress down to it's operating range. Example, sold as a M100, but it's really a M120 that needs to settle/compress down to the M100 operating range. This is indicative of a SystemA/HurricanE spring. Unlike the Japanese springs like PDI or Prometheus which are hard springs that come at their rated speed. Another issue is your piston oring is too soft and since you are driving such a hard spring, you are getting blow by...you not using a solvent to lubricate your cylinder are you?
  12. It wasn't binding when you removed it right...what is it binding on now? Also ask this question on the Krytac forums. The people that breathe, eat and sleep Krytac are active on there. https://krytac.forumchitchat.com/
  13. Bearing spring guides are not needed. You are not running a double bearing system are you? One at piston head and one at spring guide. You actually don't need any bearings at all. You just need a slider in the form of a washer on the spring guide.
  14. You will have to try and let us know....not many of those floating around where people have made significant changes.
