So...

Going to tweak my TM M14 a little...

Thinking tight bore, new hop-up rubber and new spring.

Any advice/recommendations from you lot out there?
Don't really want to go over 330fps as it is my local site limit...

Anyone done similar to their TM M14?

Ta.

Is it really worth a new spring then?? the tightbore barrel will give a slight FPS increase anyway i would just forget about the spring ATM you dont really want to be gambiling going over for a bit more power do you??

what you trying to do with the tweaks??

a madbull ultimate hop unit a great upgrade, and a tight bore if required, just make sure to use high grade bb's if you do

but a mosfet n lipo would make it sweet ;)

It's pretty cool as it is at mo.

But at the end of the bb's range it pull's right for some reason.

With the tweaking I was hoping to make it bit more accurate and squeeze bit more range out of it.

Think it's crono'ing at 300fps as it stands.

What benefit would but a mosfet and lipo give?

how do you know it pulls to the right??, are you testing from a fixed stand?? could be you lean to the right and its the hop adjustment thats out a bit, set correctly it should drop a bit then rise.

the madbull hopunit will make it more accurate as will a tight bore ( if you can get one if not a guarder clear hop with a scs buckling), very nice done together

mosfet will give you less trigger contact wear, with a faster trigger responce along with a nice ROF depending on battery size,

lipo cos they great lol


have you also tried .23/.25 bb's ??

would have to check you site's rules on them tho, most are 330/350 with a .20

It pull's to the right at very end of shot.
You can see the BB pull.

I don't think it's me as I let someone else shoot it and they said same.

Someone said it might be the hop-up putting some right spin on it?

I normally use 0.25's.

Local site limit's 328+ 7% with 0.20 so was looking at going for around 330fps.

Oh - kejot - local site is Combat South! ;)

Cheers!
