  1. What are your eyes worth? Safety is important...if they don't work...get something else.
  2. Head band for sure. The more gap you have between the eyes and the lens...the better it can dissipate moisture. I personally run old school paintball mask thermal lens and the frame allows for better ventilation and the interior volume is much better for air movement.
  3. What I am typing below is for a "TRUE" Thermal lens goggle. If you have the one pictured I see a mild design flaw. If this is a "true" thermal goggle, it' Fog Resistant, not Fog Proof. Do NOT put any chemicals on the inner hydrophobic lens (baby shampoo is okay if it is a mild detergent). You can ruin the anti-fog properties. Soap and water is only to be used to "rinse" dirt out of them. Then pad dry with paper towels...not NOT wipe for the surface scratches easily. By their description and the inner lens has a hard coating on them...that isn't a True Anti-Fog Thermal Lens. If you are a profuse sweater. Thermal lens googles will not stay fog free. The simple solution...wear a head band and prevent extra moisture from getting in your goggles. Knowing what I know abut Pyramex...that is a dual pane "normal" goggle.
  4. First, you will not find M16VN fronts that readily, especially from the same manufacturer. A&K makes the most common SR25. G&P Made the best 16VN fronts. The two do not work together seemlessly. What you are looking for is the AR10...however, this isn't a widely made or supported platform. Magazines are very hard to get. There is a CA version...but CA is a BAD company when they made this AEG and the new owners are NOT making older "one-off" models for the limited demand market.
  5. Shimmed and Greased, a TM? You didn't need to do that unless you swapped the 6mm bushngs from Nylon to Metal. Being that the trades are dremelled...it's "not" a Classic nor is it an Antique. It's just an old TM. 100.00 is a fair price if it's running in stock performance levels.
  6. It would be better platform for a DMR when it comes to durability of the mechbox. However, there is a elongated V2 mechbox know as either the V2.5 or V2L. It has a larger cylinder for air pressure and with that you make make your AEG work smarter, not harder. This would be the SR25 replica or certain SCAR-H models.
  7. You can convert to Semi, but you cannot convert mechbox from V2 to V3. That is not how the number system works. Mechbox type I-VIII is not an upgrade over an older unit. Rather it is a variation to make other AEG's look like the replica they are mimicing. V2 boxes are tall...you can't make a SIG on a V2 because the receiver is short. So they Made a lower profile mechbox in a V3. Here is an example of the AEG and the mechbox they use: V3, V2, V6 and V7 Being that you are from the EU. Please join Arnies Airsoft Forum in the UK. It's the largest Forum in the world and all the EU players discuss items there. As for why V2 are bad...they aren't so much bad, rather they are WEAK due to a design issue. If you overdrive a V2 mechbox the front shears off. Like this: That occurs when you run a mechbox OVER specification. Making an AEG a DMR is running a mechbox over specification...and thus...it will break sooner than later.
  8. We "all" shoot the 6mm ball. What the dispenser looks like has absolutely no bearing on ballistics. For example I have a Glock 35 replica with a 7" inner barrel. It shoots like an "upgraded" AEG...and some people do "complain" that it's unfair for a "pistol". So...with that get what appeals to you "physically". The ARP is a AR pistol caliber replica....so yes it uses a V2 Mechbox.
  9. It's going to be very difficult to make a "dependable" DMR out of a V2 mechbox based AEG . This due to the design flaw of the V2 mechbox shell.Can you post a picture of the upper shell of your G3? Are you a EU player or an LA player?
  10. You need to define your parmeters. What is your Field requirement for a DMR? Most locals don't have a combo DMR/Sniper Rifle. It's either or for classification...not both. In our locale for an example. AEG 400fps with .20 DMR is 450fps with .20. with or without FA lock. Sniper is 500fps with .20 and Semi-Auto or bolt action Only! And with that...immediately get out of your mind that all after market parts "are" upgrades" and that American Consumerism applies...it doesn't.
  11. What are you looking for in data. Efficiency or Range/Accuracy. If it's the former. Very few will have compared the 3. You will have to piece that together. If it's the latter...pressure delivery system is irrelevant. The 6mm bb projected from "any" of the dispensers has it's own set of guidelines that is independent of the delivery device. Quality wise of the 3. Woverine - Best Tippmann - Good Lancer - Worst You can also ask this question on Airsoft Society. Activity here is near non-existant after the server crash from a few years ago.
  12. Hi. Rather dead here since the site went down in the past. Many are also on Airsoft Society....just FYI.
  13. That is a Custom Shop in Taiwan...those parts you are listing are custom made by them...and not sold outside of their shop. Thus that is why I don't consider them an "upgrade" rather it's a custom shop replacement. A very fine line between parts that make it work better versus replacing parts that are just made of a lower grade material.
  14. Why would you think a "Proprietary" system would have upgrade parts? 99% of the sub 100 scopes that you find in Airsoft is "made in china". If you want better...you need to pay more. That 3-9 is a 18.00 Wholesale Scope...18.00 scopes...aren't that good... Another thing is every one shoots 6mm with Magnus Effect. There is no advantage in a 6mm BAR over other 6mm BB dispensers. Rather you should be using a Crossbow Scope with 3-4 reticle points for different ranges. Because your bb flies more like a bolt than a .30 caliber bullet going 2800fps. Here is one for about the price of that non-working 3-9X40 https://www.amazon.com/Skyvady-Crossbow-Five-line-Crosshair-Illumination/dp/B07PR5ZP4M/ref=sr_1_12?dchild=1&keywords=crossbow+scope&qid=1596336890&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-12
  15. SRU has made two poly versions for a Carbine Kit.
  16. Before you go mod crazy...it uses core components from the G Series. With that...most parts don't improve performance. Gas Valves for Mags - BS Upgrade. Barrel - Not really upgrades unless you go longer than stock. Being that this is a GAS gun. Tighter bore on such a short barrel is an unnecessary upgrade. The simplest improvement you can make for range and accuracy is swapping to a Crazy Jet Barrel, use the MR Type VSR Packing and then shoot heavy bbs.
  17. AEG's that have a clean barrel and an oil free hop-up has better accuracy at range. 50' is not something that is remarkable. Guys have been pushing 85 Yards....yes most of a football field with a packing change and heavy bbs with a stock internal AEG around 400fps with 8" groups.
  18. "High Output Valves" are a scam. It's a fleece the new player product and this is why. Nothing in Airsoft is made to a Standard (outside of Japan). If Nothing is Made to a standard. what would deem a item to be normal and what would be an "upgrade" and an improvement. Answer....NOTHING! In most cases the "upgrade" part is a lateral inperformance. In many cases...it's a downgrade and on rare cases...it is an upgrade. So...over 20 years of USA Airsoft...nothing is made to a standard and you get what you pay for. As for why CO2 does not work with a GG Valve...it's called "design" and Physics. A GG valve is designed for operating pressures around 115psi. A CO2 valve is designed for operations around 820psi. Do you see why this higher pressure maybe keeping your valve "shut"? BTW...CO2 is a horrible gas source for Airsoft. There are no advantages to using it in any way regarding: Cost, performance and product durability.
  19. Not sure who OEM"s Begaldi...we don't get their products in the USA. Have you asked on Arnies Airsoft in UK? That is a large EU Forum and many people there are from Germany and have direct experience with their products.
  20. You can't try what doesn't fit. Due to the tolerances (or lack of) you may just have to run a traditional hop-up packing and nub and sacrifice the 6-8% improvement with the ML packing and nubs due to the lack of "fine" adjustment on your AEG.
  21. Try Airsoft Society for this parts request. After ASF going down awhile back...most people left and never came back.
  22. I don't think MAXX makes a hop-up unit for a M14. A stock unit is just fine. If you want accuracy the hop-up unit has very little influence on the performance. Think of the tires on a car. It not the RIM that give you grip...its the rubber.
  23. Yes...also...teh V3 has the square top. Your Hop-Up unit cavity may not have the volume to accommodate that square top.
