The mag itself is similar in design to a VSR, so my guess would be it uses a VSR style chamber as well. The bolt handle is obviously an L96 style, so one would assume it to use a L96 style cylinder, also meaning L96 internals. The rest, I can't find pictures of. If you could take pictures of all the internals when you get it, it'd help out immensely, as the internet seems limited on this rifle.
I stand corrected, it appears the first images I saw were of a WELL L96. It looks as though the AGM uses a VSR G-Spec style handle, which would mean a VSR cylinder and internals.
The AGM L96 is really a bad platform, because the whole gun is not compatible with any one thing. However, I will say that if the inner barrel is an issue, buy a cheap madbull and just dremel it until it looks like the stock cut, or mill it if you can do that.
Yeah, although, I have found that the hop-up is a vsr hop which means i can change it to a PDI one. I have already changed the bucking and its just a means of measuring the inner barrel to buy a tight-bore. I believe the trigger mechanism to be based on the vsr system so either a zero or an M trigger system could be installed (small modifications if necessary), if not then the sears could be reinforced. I believe the cylinder uses the aps2 system but i havent got around to opening it up yet so bobs your uncle, although range and accuracy is my first priority unlike any other gun i own or have worked on.
Hey Zero, can you give me a bit more information of the hop-up unit. I am fairly new to all these parts but the U hop-up that is stock with the gun is almost similar to a pile of rotten dung. If you could give me a part(s) list of upgrading the hop-up it would be greatly appreciated. Also, good luck with your journey to upgrading it into a beast because hopefully with whatever you apply to the gun I will too. Thanks in advance!
I will let you know how it goes Fuzzy! Im currently going to strip the internals, hopefully place an M trigger, if not a zero will do. As for the cylinder, i would like an aps2 teflon cylinder but the cylinder on the gun is supposed to be larger than the standard aps2, but i have not measured so that may not be completely true. New spring guide, new piston and a 150/170 spring depending on what i have spare. As for the hop, the gun follows the vsr system meaning i can place a PDI unit in there with a firefly/guarder soft hop. As goes for inner barrels, i think a standard 6.03 will be thrown in (preferably Laylax).
As aesthetics go, im planning placing a paracord sling, leopold mk3 scope with sunshade, harris bipod (real), tornado barrel (whether i have one or can aquire, if not, ill place a fluted one instead), silencer adapter with a large supressor and some sexy paint! When finnished i will place a full review and photos for you all to drool over, may even have to add some photos of the Cheytac whenever i get round to it!
Bigbrother, the hop-up is exactlly the same as the standard hop-up on the vsr series of rifles made by Tokyo-Marui, i own various vsr's and i have compared and they are the same unit design (possibly the same, more probably worse although decent out of the box). I will be adding a PDI vsr hop unit to replace it however and also upgrading the bucking, most likely a firefly/guarder vsr bucking (not sure whether it will be hard or soft however. On top of that im going to be placing a tightbore whether it be a madbull or laylax i cannot tell you but it will most definatly be a 6.03mm. Contradicting myself here, the AGM l96 actually comes stock with a 6.05mm and is in the golden bore size 6.03-6.05 and is decent out of the box with me hitting targets 100m away (not too great but decent, i was using a new hop rubber , everything else however was stock). If you have any other questions just let me know and ill help you out!
And thankyou for the takedown guide as well! I already knew but helps
One hell of a hybrid platform to use but hey, nothing like the feeling of overcoming a challenge and creating a beast which will quite literally destroy a tuned Maruzen when in good hands!
It was a down hill shot so i could manipulate the range with help from mill-dots inside the scope. Although at that range the gun was 3 mils to the right, wasn't exactly too hard but again, it was a downhill shot.
