Cylinder problems

Hi guys, I’ve got a VSR-10 with an AA cylinder, spring guide, piston(45˚) and M150 spring. I just installed all of that but now everytime after I pull the cylinder/blot back to load and try to push it back to load the bb to shoot, it’s really hard to do so. Feels it’s really rough maybe rubbing hard on something. I know it’s not the scope mount so I thought it was the piston’s metal side rubbing on the cylinder. I sanded it down bit and it ‘seems’ to have helped. I also sanded down the sides of the piston spring stopper but I'm not sure that helped. I also added silicone oil in and out the cylinder with no avail. Any ideas? Sorry for this long ass question.

It sounds like your piston is dragging on your cylinder.
Since you are using a 45º piston and trigger, you can't avoid it.
Unless you gut a 90º setup which includes a whole new trigger and piston.
I would suggest one of these https://www.bulltrigg.com/product/bulltrigger-2/
And this https://www.evike.com/products/91158/ .
Also, you will be needing a Maple Leaf MR or Autobot bucking in the 60º-75º variant as well as a nub from Masada to improve effective range and accuracy.
After all of this and a few little mods here and there, you should be shooting pretty well.

I would actually recommend a springer custom works trigger (non budget version) paired with the scw or wasp piston. If you want to go slightly cheaper however, you can get the maple leaf cylinder kit. For £75 you get a cylinder, spring guide, 90 degree piston and spring and pair that with a trigger of your choice (again, I recommend springer custom works).

Well, this guy already has a nice cylinder, so idk why he would need a new one.
The SCW trigger and SCW piston is also a good choice, piston I would say is better. but triggers are about equal imo.
The WASP on the other hand is not in stock anywhere, and isn't really needed, as an SCW or AA piston will dow the trick, and it's easy to make weights.
But yeah, another good pair to choose from.

from.
Didn't notice that.
As for cylinder internals, the cheapest would be airsoftpro trigger+action army piston.
You can also get the maple leaf 45-90 degree conversion kit.

thxs. It makes sense that the cylinder in rubbing against the piston since pushing the bolt back is really hard. Pulling the cylinder not so because of a hard spring. Would sanding it down even more help? I'm kinda on a low budget so I want to avoid a new trigger set if I can.

You should probably just leave it as you can't avoid this stuff.
And you don't want to destroy your things lol
