Introduction Thread

First and foremost, I'm sorry for not posting this thread before.

Ok, so I got into airsoft after going through a chain of hobbies after I quit video games for good. To be honest, I don't really know how I got to airsoft in the first place, I started with gold & silver collecting for a few weeks, followed by stocks, and then followed by knives I think (still one of my main hobbies, don't really know how I got there too), and then Airsoft. I actually quickly left airsoft for Air Rifles because they were cheaper and more powerful as I got into hunting, but left hunting, went into the "real" guns hobby, back to knives, back to guns, and a month ago back to Airsoft. I currently own no airsoft rifles but 2 airguns. A Hatsan 1000s striker .22 cal (~800fps with 15 gram pellets) and a Red Ryder. I practice with the Hatsan at about 170ft at a 6x5inch target with a 3-9x scope freestanding. Can hit it every time and can hit it in ~3 seconds not every time. Don't really like the idea of spraing bbs everywhere and that's why I made the horrible mistake of getting into Airsoft Sniping. I'm even admitting that, but nevertheless, I still want to find a way to have a $200 airsoft rifle + upgrade setup that will have at least 60 meters or more range and will not break on me. And that's my goal. Right now I have this as a list:

1. AA 45deg Piston. I don't have the money in my budget to get a 90deg
2. Lancer Tactical $6 piston sear and $6 trigger sear, both advertised as steel.
3. Some kind of Hopup Bucking, suggestions? Also, does this help a lot with accuracy? Do I need a Hopup Lever?
4. AA Spring Guide. I was advised to get a different one, but I don't know which one.
5. 6.03mm AA ~400mm barrrel.

That's it. If I could, I would get a 90deg. piston, a better spring, a hopup, a hopup lever, barrel spacers, cylinders, cylinder heads, metal trigger guard, and a better bolt setup, but I just physically can't. Eventually, (In a year after buying the rifle) I will. My plan is to go 1-2 every two months and to practice with it 3 times a week and use 40-70 rounds per practice "session", where I run with the rifle for about 5mins and then shoot 5 rounds at 170 ft (I would shoot at a (small-er) man size taget that I made instead of the 6x5 target that I use with the air rifle) freestanding, and repeat 3 times.

Thanks for reading :)

Go ahead and waste your money I guess I already told you the only upgrades you can get with the amount of money you have with even getting close to any of the results you want can only help a person that actually wants to be helped.

Personally, I like to upgrade the power train and reliability of the rifle before doing any accuracy upgrades as a lot of the time, you can just polish the stock barrel and it can be very good.
So, if you do not go above an M150 spring you could possibly use a JJ 90 degree trigger. They are cheap as chips. They are not strong and so I would not go above an M150. I would skip getting a new spring guide to save some money. A lot of the time if you have an M150 or less the spring guide will last a very long time.
If you did get the JJ trigger you could then shape your current plastic piston to have a 90 degree sear. This will save you from having to purchase a new piston for the 90 degree trigger. (Aftermarket pistons often have a better air seal though)
Further down the track I would upgrade the barrel to a AA 6.01 x 470mm. This should allow you to use 0.36gm or 0.4gm bb's to good effect. Next upgrade the hopup chamber to the AA chamber.

I don't know the context, but if they're just asking a wider audience for input, I'd have to say they're right to do so- it wouldn't make sense for them to blindly trust a single source on a topic they're unfamiliar with.

Eh, idk though, I mean at the same time, most of reliability in terms of consistency is just air seal, which can be handled with mods...I think it comes down to whether or not they can get sufficient accuracy with their budget, because if not, there's no reason to upgrade power. I haven't done any math, but witch that said, and such an extremely low budget, I feel like the following order might be apt:
JG BAR-10
Action Army Chamber
Maple Leaf Autobot [of appropriate durometer]
[mods to improve air seal]
[whatever mods necessary to ensure the inner barrel-to-scope unit is rigid]
Good BBs
