In the first part of this project blog, I will be showing you what was purchased and plans on what the project will cover, enjoy!
It has been a while since I upgraded a VSR but have been getting the urge to get back into sniping (and Airsoft in general) for a while now. I fortunately managed to acquire a partially upgraded Tokyo Marui VSR Pro from a recently Airsoft car-boot sale held at HALO MILL in Huddersfield West Yorkshire. It was a bit of a bargain but wasn't working 100% with a 500fps cylinder set. So, the project began the other night in repairing the rifle to withstand 500fps.
The gun came as just the rifle with 4 magazines, silencer adapter and the following upgrades:
With the main upgrades already installed, I am fortunate in that I don't need to spend a great deal in more upgrades. The other upgrades that will be purchased shortly include:
# Laylax 6.03 inner barrel 430mm length
# MAD BULL Red accellorater hop rubber / Firefly hard VSR hop rubber
Fingers crossed there won't be a need for a zero-trigger of any kind. I have however already fitted a few accessories which are all bought in store. These include:
So the imediate plans for the gun:
Fix the slam firing with a 500fps spring / bolt, install a 6.03 tightbore and achieve 500fps with an m130 or m140 spring to achieve incredibly light bolt pull
# Polished internals for an easier bolt pull
# Top down center hop mod
# Filled stock
# One piece paper barrel spacer
# Magazine mag pulls
# Hessian ghillie
# Web-tex tape wrap
So what's coming next? How I will fix the slam firing at 500fps, photos of installing a tight bore and MAD BULL accelerator hop rubber and filling of the stock. After that I will be blogging how I will achieve 500fps and an easier bolt pull plus polishing.
Hope to have the second part of the blog up next week!
