So I decided to try out this Striker/M40 mashup cause it looks cool and simply for the upgradeability and parts selection since I've already built a VSR platform previously. It's definitely a solid made rifle and is a Striker AS-02 w/ an M40 Chassis.... First, I love the unique trigger guard safety and stock TDC Hop adjuster!!! Second, it's not something that EVERYONE has... Its "different"...

Now... Pros:
Weight is pretty good and it's VERY durable!
Trigger guard safety
TDC Hop up adjustment
Obvious Striker series Pros out of the box
Dead on up to 125ft/38m... Lol.
Not very consistent in accuracy or range with BBs over .25/.28

I Just ordered
Action Army Hopup Chamber
Maple Leaf Autobot 60° bucking (silicone)
Action Army AS-02 Hop Adjustment Wheel
Action Army M140 Spring
(Forgot to order barrel spacers... Doh!)

I truly believe that I should be getting great range and consistency with my stock sear/trigger box while shooting .36g BBs. Eventually I'll be down sizing both barrels and running a suppressor.
Stock barrel length is 545mm-550mm
Want to run
310mm short outer barrel
150ish mm suppressor
450ish mm 6.01 TB inner barrel

I am completely open to advice and ideas on having a great performing Striker series Sniper/Scout rifle!!!

P.S. my sling loop broke so Yes... I used a key ring hahaha

Looks the part can't say they perform well though.

Problem is the small cylinder volume will never be ideal for heavyweight bb's. Keep us updated on the build
