Greetings dear airsoft community, I am new to this forum, so very quick introductions, I am 25 and just starting airsoft. As condensed as possible: My interest is not oriented around making a realistic gun. It is to optimize ones mechanics and take advantage of it's design. I know of the existence of the holy grail guide, and a lot of the info there is taken into consideration. We all know the advantages of bullpups. The Styre A1 has approximately 510mm inner barrel which to my knowledge is awesomely long. The AU3G / AUG A3 is made of very good plastic. The AU4G has a full metal RIS. The UAR is also under consideration. What I want to build is a DMR which; - is pinpoint precise up to a minimum of 100 meters. - shoots at a consistent FPS (+-3). - shoots at as high FPS as mechanically possible. - is electric (which is to say not GBB or HP). I seek any and all advise. May I consider a 190 spring with great internals ? Different bullpup manufacturers have different inner barrel lengths for the same model which is puzzling. I have other questions too, but let's get a discussion flowing first :) Thank you for your time.
Hi, I'm looking to use an airsoft spring-powered gun to shoot 43cal paintballs (11mm, ~0.7g). I have the means of machining some parts (barrel + hopper mechanism), but wouldn't want them to be too complicated. We also don't need much range and don't need the typical 300-400fps speeds. Likely ~100fps would be sufficient. Some of my questions: 1. Would this be a reasonable modification and would there be enough power in a typical airsoft gun to propel a paintball of the above specs? 2. What are the strongest springs that can be put into a typical airsoft gun, and would that significantly increase the power? 3. How difficult would it be to manufacture a custom barrel (11mm diameter) and have that work with a typical airsoft upper gearbox? I.e. what's important to ensure the ball gets propelled correctly? 4. Has anyone ever heard of anyone doing something similar, I.e. using a spring-powered gun for shooting paintballs? I don't know much about airsoft or paintball to begin with, so if there's any more information that would be helpful to answer these questions, please let me know. Here are some of the gearboxes I was looking at for reference: Lonex 8mm Enhanced Bearing AEG Gearbox Ver.3 ICS M4 Bore Up Complete Upper Gearbox for ICS M4 D Boy OEM Complete AK v3 Gearbox CYMA Complete Version 3 AK Full Metal Gearbox w/ High Torque Motor If there are any other sites to be looking at for gearboxes, please let me know. Thanks!
Yes, I know the Miracle Barrel is not a mod itself- it's a barrel for sale which boasts a very simple modification to the standard barrel design- where the BB sits in a consistent position pre-trigger-pull. Is the Miracle Barrel better than other options out there because of this? :censored2: if I know, I just know this is a design any barrel would benefit from, and it isn't complicated, so I want to apply it. I'm wondering if anyone here has attempted to modify their barrel to recreate this design, or seriously considered it? The only thing stopping me from committing 100% to this is...well, life- I'm on break, and last time I left for school, Airsoft got sidetracked a depressing amount Depending on the coming weeks, I may take this project up wholeheartedly, and am seriously interested in it regardless. My first thought was drilling four holes on the underside of the barrel appropriately, to anchor some 'tracks' used for the actual support of the BB. This may be as simple as four holes, and some copper wire strung through like shoelaces, held secure by (and plugging the holes via) Loctite. Any input?
