Remove the airbrake. The standard length is too long to allow the gun to produce proper power.

Are you sure the video you watched showed snipermechanic using the standard airbrake? Because I'm fairly certain he either uses a modified (shorter and tapered) version of the standard brake (like me) or was not using one at all for that testing (depending on the video you watched, but I'm pretty sure I know the one you're referencing).

If you insist on using the full brake, you'll need a much stronger spring.

Hi ADMD, im pretty sure he says standard airbrake but ill double check. Its the video where hes building the srs for a dutch customer. He used an M150 spring and wasp kit standard break and got 2.3joules.
Thats whats been confusing me.
Im going to have another play about this week with the different set ups and see what i can do.
I also tried the wasp kit with an m160 spring and still got No way near the 324fps on .45s i did on the silverbrake standard piston set up.
Im sure ill get there eventually lol, one thing for sure is, im learning all about the gun having to tinker so much with it which is good for a newbie like myself.
Appreciate everyones help input amd help on this!! 🙂

Srs have enough volume to shoot any bb weight with airbrake also. Srs 16" with Rapax 2+ spring should be 2.2-2.4J with wasp piston. Try different lubricant, it must be thin, don't use silverback grease for lubing piston cup. Obviously you have piston related issue bcs you get much more with stock piston.

So i manged to resolve the issue, i took everything apart and put it back together, with the M150 spring im now getting 320 fps on .45g bbs and under 3 joules.
I used the steel WASP sleeve and standard airbrake. The gun is also so quiet now with the WASP piston and Silverback suppressor installed.
I skirmished it the weekend and loved it! It took me a little while to get the hop (Standard one) right but after that it was so much fun to use. When people comment on how quiet the gun is and some of the shots you pull off you know the time and money was worth it.

I know this is old now but I've just come across this thread on Google. I am having the same problems with wasp in SRS.

I was running a Morpheus barrel, fast hop, wasp steel sleeeve/standard brake and rapax 2 joule spring in my a1 at bang on 2.2 joules with 0.45 and incredibly quiet.

Now I've transferred the same setup to my a2 and it's been a bit of a nightmare. Couldn't get the fast hop to seal so I've gone back to sba hop unit and have managed 100% air seal again but the joules are all.over the place, very low - I've managed to get to 2.1-2.2 joules now but have had to use all 3 spacers that come with the wasp and there is very little constancy in the power output.

How did you resolve your problem in the end?

Thanks
