    Also what's a good spring and hop-up rubber? I need it from airsoft atlanta so I get it this week.

    v3 gearbox, dboys aks-74u if that means anything. It chronoed today at 320 with .2 g and I need it a bit higher for field play. 380-90 fps
    Jat pls help

    I would leave the spring alone in a dboys, unless you want to tear your gun apart from the inside.

    No offense, but clones are cheap for a reason. My first gun was an echo1 g36 that I threw a spring in to bring it up to 400 fps, making the common mistake that fps gives range. All kinds of exciting and expensive things happened to the gearbox.

    As far as hopup, i've had great success with mating a Prometheus air nozzle to a kwa 2GX bucking.
    Nice thing about the kwa bucking is you dont need special spacers. (M-spacer, C-spacer, H-spacer, etc).

    Provided you're using quality ammo I'd throw a tightbore brometheus or madbull v2 in there.

    Edited:

    also the echo 1 orange and systema energy buckings are good.

    Edited:

    if you really want to replace the spring, prometheus or systema non linear m110 or m120.
    They're rated in meters per second.
    so an m100 is 100 meters per second or 330 fps. In theory. Mileage may vary depending on comresion/ammo/hopup/barrel.

    Edited:

    oh almost forgot to mention polar star PCS and g&g buckings, those are good too.

    look around there

    Edited:

    really its more about making sure the air nozzle and the hopup have a good seal than the bucking itself.

    Edited:

    also read the list, i provided 4 other brands

    To be fair, not all clones are the same. A lot of clones come shooting 430 stock, and a downgrade is a good idea, but they'll function with the strong spring. Though if it's a JG and is shooting 320, it probably won't be able to take much more.

    Kill- it's a totally standard v3 gearbox, you can find plenty of tutorials online.

    VFC.

    Alice is cheaper and you can find it at most surplus stores.

    Battlebelts are more comfortable

    I vote no. I'm pretty sure that's the cyma cm035a. I had mine snap in half, and someone else on here had the same thing happen.
    I'd try to get the cm045a, but I could only find it in stock on asian sites.

    Sorry I was very tired from yesterday's game and forgot a lot of things. Soft snow and snowdrifts up to 4 feet deep is death to your thighs.

    IF you keep it below 1 joule (about 330 fps) there's a barrel for you. It's called the Tanio Koba Twist (by m night shyamalan). It has a very odd rifling that starts to stop working up around 370 fps is where it starts to fling bbs everywhere, but it's pretty much the most accurate barrel out there. Some people have told me the rifling starts to work again above 500fps but lets ignore that. Although for optimal accuracy it works best at around 320-340 fps

    Using heavier bbs to slow down the fps doesnt work either. We're talking about joules, not fps. So dont think you've found a workaround. :3

    Ok so I have 2 cans of stuff labeled as silicone oil. One says "ICS GEAR SILICONE OIL" and the other says "G&G SILICONE OIL." The G&G stuff is significantly lighter and is clear in color. The ICS stuff is kinda thick and is yellowish in color. I also have these 2 little things that say "CA Cylinder Grease." What would I use these for on a GBB pistol?

    also upgrading a barrel or hopup in a clone isnt a problem because you're not opening the gearbox and breaking all the hard work the kid in china put into it.

    CHOCOLATE MILK.










    Sounds like you should use the G&G silicone oil. silicone spray should be clear.

    Edited:

    also dont use that CA cylinder grease on anything. throw it away.

    Go to a hardware store and get food grade silicone.

    I keep wanting to buy a twist barrel, but I don't know what I'd put it in. You get supreme accuracy, but at such a low fps you'll be at a major disadvantage on the field, regardless of how excellent your hop is. If only they worked up to 370-380, It would go right in the SVD.

    What's wrong with the CA cylinder grease? I used in in my AEGs, they work pretty good.

    The new CQB place is pretty cramped, pistols/shotties/machine pistols only unless you don't "run-n-gun" with an AEG. I'm thinking a TM MP7 might be in order, should I try for one? I've seen people trying to ditch theirs for as low as $50 because of how little they can be used outside of the (not elitist and thus uncool) CQB places.

    get it used if you see one cheap. Just keep in mind it's gonna be a bit hard to get replacement and upgrade parts outside of japanese retailers.

    They're not very well known, but they're a small company in the US so you can sue them or beat them up if they give you trouble. Small shops normally have the best service anyways.

    Because your barrel is not long enough to need compression from a full cylinder.

    Naw. Just go for systema or guarder

    I looked on that terrible website and personally, based on what they have in stock, i would get a madbull shark bucking.

    The black is hard, the red is softer.

    Also even though brometheus is usually a solid name, they make terrible buckings.
