    It's an AGM. Although I completely redid the internals.
    That $200 on the loadout is excluding the gun and parts and I already had the helmet so that saved some money. I probably spent about another $250 on the gun in total
    I wish I was better at airsmithing, I'm a complete fucktard when it comes to these things. Every time I open up a gun of mine, I break something else and make it worse because I get very easily frustrated, and I don't have a clear work surface. My room is a fucking mess, I need like a table to work on so I don't lose parts.

    I wish airsoft guns were a lot cheaper here, I'm too afraid of opening my guns up and fucking them up extremely bad, since each gun I have is basically a huge investment.

    Might take apart my AKM though once I get a new AK to replace that one

    That sucks for you guys. Tinkering with my guns is my favorite part of having them. It's so much more fun to me to buy a cheap clone gun and upgrade it than to just go buy a high end one.

    Gas guns are actually really fun to work on. I want more

    Hey Jat,
    My KWA SR-7 is getting some parts because it's been having a bitchfit lately (normal wear and breakage, i'm it's third owner)
    I want to redo the compression and make it as good as humanly possible.
    I want to buy a new piston head (this broke), and a new piston, I have my eyes set on a Prommy bucking (gun came with one but was worn out by .30's.).
    Could you recommend some good compression parts (Piston head, Piston, Cylinder head combos)?
    Thanks.

    Edited:

    My AK also has a weird thing going on, where it seems like the motor needs to almost rev up to fire it on the first shot and then it's good until I stop firing it for a while.
    I'm not going for ROF on my AK, just torque, any suggestions for that, if the motor really is the problem?
    LEAVE ME ALONE ;__;

    Anyways. It's kwa so you already have a metal ball bearing spring guide. Usually. There's a handful of kwa's that dont have one. I've been out of the scene for a while. So everything I say is a few months old while I get up to speed.
    With my setup, when I block the port, I can only get the piston down about half way and it wont move. So keep the cylinder unless there's something wrong with it. It's just a brass tube with a hole cut in it. You only need to change the cylinder if you change the barrel length. The piston might still be good, that's up to you.

    KWA pistons have treated me well. Im using a metal unicorn piston, but if you really need a new one, the madbull polycarb pistons are pretty good. The piston isn't that important of a part for compression. As long as your gearset likes the piston you're good to go. Of course cheap pistons can crack and break. Stay away from metal pistons or all metal teeth. The reason for this, is there's a lot of stress put on that part, if something goes wrong in the gun (a jam) something might HAVE to break somewhere. Its best for the piston to break than for any other part ($100 set of helical gears for example).

    Systema metal ported piston head with ball bearings. This is king. The harder/faster the piston moves the stronger the seal it'll make. But it's loud, being metal and all that. If you want to be quieter get a silent polycarb piston/cylinder head set. The seal seems to be about as good as the metal, but I dont trust tupperware to be honest. Which is why I own a cz-75 and ria 1911a2 and not a glock or XD

    I'm having a mind fart about buckings. I use the KWA g2 something x buckings. They have the little nurbs on them so you dont have to use a wishbone or convex spacer, just a normal spacer bit. (im actually using a piece of 12 gauge wire insulation as a spacer in one of my guns right now with that bucking because i lost the spacer ) Also, softer buckings tear easier. I prefer harder buckings. I feel this is the single most important part of an airsoft gun. It's the only part of the gun that gives you range, which is ALWAYS needed when you're playing field. Proper hopup makes a world of difference. So treat this part very carefully and replace often. On most guns it only takes a few minutes to replace. And dont rip it. Softer hop ups easily rip, especially if you're clearing a jam or cleaning the barrel.

    The modify v2 cylinder head is one of the best. It has double gaskets and a rubbery pad on it to make it quieter. Although I did find part of the pad stuck in my silencer/can thingy but it's pretty old so i can forgive it. Was pretty wtf moment. not sure how it happened as my barrel comes right up to the edge of the can.

    Also you're forgetting the air nozzle. Prometheus is good and what I've always used. Haven't toyed around with other brands although I've heard hurricane is good. There's several nozzles with an o-ring inside that I really want to try. I think it's hurricane. I'd get hold of one of those if possible.

    Silicone lube.
    Silicone lube EVERYWHERE.
    In the cylinder that is, don't use it anywhere else.

    Edited:

    Oops forgot about your AK problem.

    Sounds like the battery is warming up to me. Might want to get a new battery.

    Edited:

    Good news for you, GBB's are super easy to maintain, all you need is copious amounts of lube (depending on the model/manufacturer) and you're basically good to go.
    KWA's require no upgrading just about ever, so when some part breaks you just replace it with an original part.
    Basically, you want to lubricate anywhere that's moving, take off your slide and make sure you lube the slide and frame, occasionally add lube to the valve on the magazines. Basically, anywhere you see paint scraping and signs of wear, just add a bit of lube to the area.
    Clean your barrel with a fair amount of frequency (don't lube it though or you'll coat the hopup in lube which will screw up your shots for a while).
    Most any part of a GBB is designed to have lube on it, so don't be too worried about getting it where it doesn't belong. When you think everything is adequately lubed, put the slide back on the frame and cock it a few times, make sure its a very smooth action.
    When you first get it, expect it to be over greased in a few areas and under lubed in others, just borrow some spray lube and cover the basic areas(slide and frame really). After that you're all set to go. Semi regular maintenance is easy and cheap to do and is not a pain in the ass at all.

    I would beat the ever-living shit out of that kid if that happened to me. That is a horrible thing to do, did he do it to get the parts or because "it would be funny lol"?
    I honestly don't know why he did it, but it is probably to sell it as spare parts. I'm going to do some digging around in any For Sale ads concerning USP "spare parts"

    Its kinda funny you coming back right before I go to buy parts for my gun
    Good to see you back again.
    Edit:
    One last question: If I can't find the aluminium piston head in stock, would I be able to go with the "Systema Duracon Piston Head with Thrust Bearing" one? (I think it's plastic or whatever)?
    If not, how about the Prometheus POM piston head?

    Side arms aren't really needed. Most of the time its faster to just pop a new mag in then to get your side arm out.

    my AK is externally fucked, not internally. i keep it together with electrical tape on the front and it slides forward if i shove it at mach 3

    so not really "halfway" functioning..

    i also have 2 batteries already and only play at cqbcity so i don't need to worry about that~~

    I'd get a sidearm because of how CQB city works, no MED is real nice to have. You could probably run sidearm only there pretty effectively. However, if you're not 100% set on the USP, I'd consider a cheaper sidearm and putting a bit of cash into your AK.

    Eh sidearms are fun but imo it's better to have a functioning primary since it can be used for longer ranges.
    Plus gbb's have expensive mags, and don't work in winter.

    I don't have alice, but i'd also throw a vote for it.

    He plays indoors at short ranges, primaries are actually at a disadvantage since they have minimum engagement distances at his field while pistols don't. He's also in Cali where winter is not the biggest of deals.

    No MED with pistol is dumb too imo but whatever it's the field's rules..
    I guess get a pistol, If I ran mine more I'm sure I'd have more bias towards it.

    The commando chest rig is terribly mediocre so I know that feeling.

    Oh yeah, i know that feel. Loading from that rig is fucking horrid. That and unless you cross the shoulder straps they fall off your shoulder during combat. ALICE is much more natural for loading, comfortable, and at least has some custom-ability. Not to mention the shit ton of gear that can be coupled with it, and it just looks damn CLASSY.

    So cross them. With a little practice, putting it on and taking it off is a piece of cake.
