  • Cheap/Free L96 upgrades? :)

    Hey,

    I've got a UTG L96, and was hoping I could make use of as many cheap, if not free upgrades as possible to make my gun perform :D

    I've done the barrel spacer upgrade, adding more and taping them in place to keep the barrel straight, any others you can suggest? :D

    Thanks

    Are you happy opening up the bolt? If so you can gain a few FPS by adding some washers over the spring guide (providing it is metal) to act as bearings, cleaning the piston and head, greasing the spring, placing ptfe on all threads on the bolt and then reassembling. You can also mod your hop rubber with the flat hop mod to gain another 10% of range (if not more!).

        Yeah but it doesnt stay in place all that well. Horrific airleaks are present across 90% of the clones.

          Teflon Tape = PTFE Tape. You can also use Dental Floss to create a tighter seal and hold the PTFE tape in place.
