Also rocking an AAP-01. I haven't felt the need to add a lot of upgrades so it's simply got the CNC chamber (purchased before the Hadron Liki arrived) a 6.03mm 129mm long barrel, and an MR bucking + Omega nub. I have trouble keeping it below the UK standard 350 fps .2g/Equivalent for pistols but it's a nice option for when the Mk23 doesn't come out to play. If I'm feeling REALLy frisky I use an MP5k with 12:1 gears, high-speed motor, short-stroked piston, and the usual assorted other AEG stuff. Kept it to around 300fps but it is a great option for portability and firepower....just needs a tight bore to keep the grouping acceptable, perhaps to add a little fps without any extra internal stress.

I like flexibility so the AAP is very likely going to be a semi-permanent companion as it does afford you a lot of extra weight on the field for a very tiny weight addition.In fact, aside from the known trigger issues, the biggest problem (IMO) is the stock muzzle flip! I added a substantial muzzle device to offset that particular problem and it's now far more controllable.

There's a tuner in the UK (Kingdom of Airsoft) that does some insane mods on AEPs, but as noted, the damn things are subject to diminishing returns - I think he was claiming over 300fps and throwing a .36 over 60m but the sheer work involved......and the parts list was ridiculous. For that outlay (both financially and in terms of time invested) I'd just go with a GBB of some kind.

That would be neat :)

My AAP is ridiculously efficient for a GBB, and whilst we haven't hit colder temperatures in the UK yet, I doubt I'll need to worry about it not functioning - which was certainly a problem for some replicas in years past! I used to keep my GBB in a pocket with a handwarmer years ago......these days the buckings and systems are so much more advanced.

You can actually buy heated mag pouches! I have tried using heat pads, they work to an extent, but cold weather still + mag cool down is still a crippling combination. My old Tanaka revolver was the best for converting that 👍
