  1. So I was ordering a batch of Madbull 0.40g when I was told that my order was different than intended and that the product, Madbull 0.40g Tan was no longer tan.

     

    Please note, I am not advertising this seller, this is just the place I found these colorings.

     

     

    Madbull 0.36g Rust/Brown

     

     

     

    Madbull 0.40g Gray

     

     

     

     

    I have the gray one's coming in. I am curious if I will be able to see them better because they are a whiter-black ( know that doesn't make sense) or will they be just as hard as black.

     

    As in the scale it does go, White ---- Gray ----- Black.

     

    Maybe the quality is better now?

     

    We'll find out.


  2. Hop-up is two piece...kwa proprietary,

     

    Piston, what's wrong with it? The only thing I would switch on it would be the Piston head...Aluminum head? Give me a break KWA...

     

    Barrel:

     

    1. Prometheus if you have the money

    2. Madbull far cheaper and the performance is pretty much the same for a standard build like yours. So go with this.

     

    You don't really need to stablize a barrel especially on the KWA. Barrel stabilization helps but not in any way you are going to notice.

     

    Unless you are building a high end DMR you won't notice any difference in stabilizing your barrel, I have tested it in various gun brands and builds. It only really makes a difference at extreme range.

    You have an auto, you are throwing rounds down range, it doesn't matter.

     

     

    R-Hop Flat-Hop whatever you want.

     


  3. With the right compression, if the ER-Hop is as good as everyone says it is, at 450 fps with 0.20g, it should be putting 0.36g out very far. If it cannot then the ER-Hop is no better than an R-hop. Because I was able to get the Flat Hop at 450 fps to shoot 0.36g very far out there.

     

    And from what I recall, R-hop fanatics put a lot of hate on the Flat hop. Supposedly the ER-Hop is supposed to be insanely better.

     

    I actually have an ER-Hop now on my SR25 so I am going to try it out but its at a much greater FPS.

     

    My point is, the ER-hop is supposed to be give you a much greater contact time and should result in a better spin and consistency so using 0.36g should work fine with a 450 fps gun and should get decently far results but your round may travel slow.

     

    However, to agree with the above posts, with only 50 fps difference I wouldn't do it. That's how most fields where I live have it at. You really don't want to have to lead targets and pray that the wind is with you because your round is traveling so slow.

     

    If you had a 500 fps cap or even better, a 550 fps cap, its an entirely different game. With the flat hop, and good compression and work, you can get a 0.40g to easily go 350 feet++. Lets see what happens with an ER-Hop :)


  4. To the OP, most brands' 0.25g work well enough.

     

    Madbull 0.25g is a great brand actually and cost isn't bad at all.

     

    Same with Goldenball or G&G or any of the others.

     

     

    If you want one of the better options: Bioshot or Bioval.

     

    ______________________________

     

    Expensive for DMR terms: Bioval 0.40g 12$ <AT> 500rds I consider expensive enough :)

     

    Maybe you were referring to like CNCed bb's. Yeah those are competition grade, say goodbye to your barrel.

     


  5. If you want to upgrade the gun...do not get a KWA.

     

    I have made a KWA DMR in the past but literally all I switched out was a spring and nub...its about all you can really do without extensive cutting and modifications

     

    I wouldn't even really call it a DMR as I think very highly of a gun when it is addressed with that term.

     

    If you want a DMR that will is an awesome base build (and seeing as you are willing to pay for a KWA M16), buy this:

     

    http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/2860-ANK-L...-AEG-Rifle.aspx

     

    Its one of the only places I can find the A&K SR25 in stock. It should come with an V2.5 Gearbox as well unless in newer models they went to V2.

     

    It will accept multiple aftermarket parts and has the potential to compete with high end builds if upgrades and modifications are done correctly.


  6. Yeah I am just going on some of the comments he had on his SVD thread about technical stuff and how he felt by it.

     

    As he was looking for techs to do all the above to his airsoft gun except for electronics, I thought it would be easier for his lady, who probably wouldn't abuse the gun like a lot of players, to use a gun with good support.

     

    It is his money :P

     

     

     

     

    I have never seen a V2.5 Gearbox on sale since I started looking in 2010. The person I bought mine from bought his in 2004 he said they were discontinued right after they were released in 2003.

     

    As far as airsoft goes, I was not around then and it was only through rumors from "older" airsofters that I heard about it to begin with.

     

    In my searches numerous sites at the G&P Sr25 when I was looking since 2010 and none had the 7mm V2.5.

     

    A lot of the international companies had G&P Sr25 Extended Gearbox and when I messaged them about the gun, they said they had to contact G&P to actually make it then send it to me and that G&P told them it was 8mm V2.

     

    I messaged around 4-5 different international websites trying to hunt it down.

     

    The stages I saw were: 7mm V2.5 (less than 100 made is what I heard) ---> CNC V2 (company had to order this from G&P) and V2 Regular.

     

    I have not heard of what you were saying, does not mean you are wrong though.

     

    On another note, it was pure assumption as the G&G Sr25 was out much earlier G&P's V2, and a lot of these companies tend to copy each other (a majority do in airsoft, good idea's why not use them). I just assumed that since G&G was the only one using a spacer and extended air nozzle G&P did the same.

     

    Meh.


  7. Its whatever the OP decides.

     

    My decision was solely based on the fact that he does NOT tech and that its for his girlfriend.

     

    Last time I sent in my KWA they only charged me for shipping and did it all for free (when I first started airsoft), I suppose they may have changed.

     

     

     

    Just saying though as I did in your thread..

     

    From you, "Note* G&P made a few version of SR-25s that has V2 GB, this include the original version and later CNC version.

    The newest ones and some CNC versions are labeled with "SR-25 GB" use the V2.5 GB."

     

    G&P SR25 Original = V2.5 7mm

    Post Original = V2 8mm (These could be found everywhere 1-2 years ago, they may have said extended gearbox but they were not. I ran into this as I searched for the 7mm V2.5. They were all 8mm V2, based off the G&G)


  8. Soccer, you are better than that, read the whole thread, or at least scan through it.

     

    One of the main reasons I mentioned KWA was because of customer support.

     

    In the off chance of the King Arms M4 breaking, which airsoft guns often do, he would have to send it off to a tech.

     

    Unless in my absence from the scene King Arms has great customer support now?

     

    You cannot guarantee that it will not break, and if it does, he has to pay a lot more money to have it fixed via local techs than simply sending the KWA back to get fixed (especially with the warranty) unless KWA has changed since my absence.

     

     

    ____

    Off topic:

    While you're here, would you mind fixing your SR25 thread? Your misinformation about the G&P Sr25 annoys me.


  9. I believe the OP wants a gun that is decently good for a non-hardcore airsofter to use right out of the box. That's still KWA. To an enthusiast, its ranked full of "issues" but to someone who wants an AEG to shoot reliably and have good customer support because they aren't going to tech it, KWA is a fair choice for that specific price range listed.

     

    As you said yourself....

     

    Both JG and G&G are crap without any work done.

     

    The OP is not going to work on this gun, nor will his lady friend.

     

    If my girlfriend was going to get into airsoft, I would get her a KWA so I don't have to mess with it much and if it does break let the company handle it, I get sick of working on airsoft guns so why not utilize that prospect.

     

    KWA is not garbage for the non-enthusiast. It works just fine for the needs she will have.

     

     


  10. Without seeing some FPS readings I really can't help eliminate issues.

     

    I will say that just putting in a standard nub instead of the SCS as a "benchmark" to compare could help.

     

    Even if BB's are going straight down every time, its better that they do that then random directions because it will help eliminate multiple issues that COULD be going on with your AEG.


  11. When it comes to accuracy there can be numerous issues and factors. Also what range are we talking about?

     

    • Nub (You may not have the SCS centered correctly. Try a PDI W hold or KWA 2gx bucking or Flat/Rhop
    • Bucking: could be too thin/thick depending on FPS and BB choice or could be dirty (residue)
    • Compression, you may say its good, it could still be bad. Are you getting consistent FPS readings on a chrono?
    • BB choice: quality
    • Barrel Quality: I don't know too much about your barrel, but it should be fine honestly. Make sure its not bent (roll test)

     

    This is just to start. Eliminate possibilities one at a time until you find the culprit. Yes its time consuming, and yes its annoying but its what you use on the field, it NEEDS to perform.


  12. G&P Hop Ups usually perform quite well...

     

    Maybe you should make sure there is no hop up-creep as well as Nub Placement.

     

    As far as upgrading goes you have a few choices:

    • SCS Nub (if anyone still uses them)
    • PDI W Hold
    • KWA 2gx
    • Flat Hop
    • R Hop

     

    The top 3 are pretty much plug and chug.....the rest "may" require additional handiwork.

     

    Use that with a good brand of bb's 0.25g or if you grab a Flat/Rhop use 0.28g.

     

    At that weight Madbull actually makes very good bb's and they are not expensive.


  13. Maybe he can but doesn't want to?

     

    A lot of people believe that if you want a DMR, "Okay I can build you one"

     

    But if you want a "High-End DMR/ Top Performing" DMR you should do it yourself. So that's what his tech might be thinking, I haven't a clue.

     

    I personally don't care if a tech builds a person a DMR, but I do believe they lose their bragging rights if they can shoot far, its not their work if they didn't put anything into it :)


  14. Right now I have a stock G&G Combat Machine Raider CM16. It's a good gun but the range is very bad. Could you guys list some upgrades I could make to the gun. Also could you give me links to the upgrades like an inner barrel or outer barrel.

     

    Thanks Guys.

     

    I would really like to know what kind of range you like to improve on?

     

    Are we talking Range in general or effective range?

     

    Go buy a Madbull 6.03 M4 length barrel, they are cheap and very high quality, you will not go wrong there.

     

    Its pretty easy to install. Honestly if you are new to upgrading but willing to learn you could "try" the R-Hop, but I would just make a Flat-Hop since its much more "user friendly" than installing the R-Hop and the performance for Autos is pretty much the same between the Flat Hop and R-Hop.

     

    Flat Hop can be made by using an Eraser or Rubber Tubing.

     

    Better yet you could always just grab the Firefly Buffer nub, sand it down to match your hop up window, once you have done that, flip your bucking inside out sand down the mounds and protrusions, wash, let it air dry. Then install, rotate 90 degrees plug and chuck that nub and barrel...boom...you should have a much greater gain in accuracy and range.


  15. So, I was bored and decided to go into the deep interwebs and I found this:

     

    http://www.suministrosairsoft.com/6mm-bio/...egradables.html

     

    Wut? Black 0.40g? What happened to the tan ones? I don't even know if these are legitly bioval but I thought I would put it here.

     

    I would still prefer to use one of the OEM's before I resort to black, sure you have lesser quality...but being able to see where your shot goes at range so you know how to compensate...really helps.


  16. To be honest...I ran SGM's in my flat-hop TK barrelled SR47 AEG, once. This was due to me running out of regular bb's...the accuracy was insane.

     

    yeah it would work for your guys' builds most likely.

     

    They would go to the airsoft gods if Star or I used them


  17. The last two bottles of Goldenball .40s I opened up had bubbles in all the bbs I tested. Their quality control is not what it used to be.

     

    I'm afraid there are NO high quality .40s on the market right now.

     

    Seriously? Oh I am so disappointed...I had given Goldenball such high praise for their high quality heavy weights in the past. This makes me very sad.

     

    Then...yeah...we have nothing....

     

    I think bioval is going out of business or something? Even their Amazon account barely has any BB's left, you can actually see the count remaining on the last bags of 0.20g, 0.25g, and 0.30g......and god knows we haven't seen their 0.40g in a long time.
