I used laylax springs and they were great.

What brand of BB's? If the field you'll be playing at has high winds, you may want to switch to a .36 by Straight.

I use TSD Tactical bb's. And I will consider getting the .36's for the windy days. Thank you so much for your help! If I have anymore questions I will ask you!

TSD L96 clone disassembly should be the same as the Mauser clone? I'm referring to this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJovy1nxd1M

Edit:

I just disassembled my TSD and it's pretty much the same.
However, when I put the gun back together I found that it was actually more accurate than before it was disassembled! Before, I used to consistently get 1" to 1.5" groupings from about 40'. Now i'm consistently getting 0.5" to 1" groupings from the same distance. Weird.
Here's what i did:
-took barrel and receiver off stock
-took trigger system off
-took out bolt assembly
-took out cylinder
-put the cylinder (and everything else) back in place

I didn't touch the inner barrel and i didn't unscrew the outer from the receiver (i'm still having trouble taking off the orange muzzle tip).

Sorry about opening this thread after a while, but I figured this question doesn't deserve a whole thread.

To get a tightbore barrel, a PDI Hopup needs to be installed? Or does the PDI just make it easier to find a barrel because any AEG tightbore would fit? And lol I would have no idea what I was doing installing the hop-up

I believe the PDI hop-up chamber allows you to use AEG barrels which are more readily available (anyone feel free to correct me). With the stock hop-up chamber you can only use parts that are replacements for the original part. I believe that the smallest diameter of inner barrel I've seen for the original hop-up chamber is 6.04mm.

AZNpos531 is right, although there was an OK Inner barrel that was 6.03 (for the stock hop-up chamber), wgc says it was discontinued.

If you've got a clone gun, it'll help a lot to get the PDI chamber. airsoftparts.ca had some in stock last I saw, and they're local to you.

This brings up another question in my mind directed to all you experienced snipers out there. How much difference does 0.01mm make in terms of the inner barrel? Is there any noticeable difference between having a 6.04mm and a 6.03mm inner barrel? (This is of course assuming hop-up, spring etc. are the same)

since you guys are discussing about the inner barrel l96, does any one know what is the original diameter for the TSD L96 inner barrel?

Thx,

I'm going to go ahead and say 6.04 since that seems to be the only diameter that works with the stock chamber.

TSD l96. I put the bb and let it slides down inner barrel, and it seems pretty a good thightbore inner barrel than my stock m16 G&G inner barrel which is 6.04mm.

I tested both inner barrels. (stock TSD l96) I let the bb rest inside the inner barrel and I don't see a big gap around the bb. For the other inner barrel, stock m16 G&G inner barrel has a big gap around the bb. Maybe this pic I made is more clear:


I am getting the Mad Bull 6.03mm Black Python Inner Barrel for APS2 499mm. Has any one ever use this inner barrel?

Thx,

Most BB's aren't 6mm. They are in fact supposed to be 5.97 +/- .01mm (or something like that. Depending on brand there will be variations to this).

The best way to find out what size your barrel is (without knowledge of what parts are actually in your gun) is to use a set of calipers. Otherwise most stock guns come with 6.08 mm barrels.

Silencers are only useful if you plan on getting a longer inner barrel, in which case, i don't believe having a silencer would reduce your FPS. SP Refers to the strength of the spring, a higher SP means a stronger spring.

by sp i mean how does it translate into FPS, i do not want to get somehting faster then 500 FPS. Does a silencer reduce noise on a L96?

I use a PDI 210% in my L96 and it gets about 410fps with .20, I believe the PSS2 springs are slightly different. I think 150sp is about the same, but don't quote me on that. A silencer doesn't reduce noise since the noise comes from the piston, filling your stock with foam does pretty well to dampen the sound.
