My pride and joy. Currently she shoots right at 560fps with .25s, the upper limit for the state in which I play, South Carolina. My L85 is the hardest shooting replica on our fields, and as such I have gone out of my way to have special permission from all the admin of the state and the local field admins to double check that they are ok with having a gun shooting as hot as mine does. As such, I have taken a special 150ft MED. I have been around long enough, and have proven myself that they have no problems with my gun shooting so close to the limit.
The consistency is +/-.5 fps (that's half of one fps). And like I said in my introduction post, I am able to make body shots at 400ft if the need ever arises. Currently, my furthest measured and confirmed "kill" is just under 300ft.
Internally, I've kept the elongated piston in favor of the larger amount of air, and I have kept the precocking, allowing for instantaneous trigger response.

External barrel stabilization using foam and electrical tape.
I had to modify the gun a little to accept the CASV rail system.
#14 piston o-ring
new air nozzle o-ring
sanding the tappet plate
sorbo on the cylinder head to correct AoE
teflon taped the cylinder head
tapping the spring to remove the *sproing* spring noise
sanded tappet plate
Floss modded the bucking
stabilized the inner barrel
shimmed the hop up arm and gears
trimmed the hop up gears so that they hold their hop better
stabilized the barrel within the hop up chamber
shimmed the gears to perfection including motor height
soldered wires to the motor
extended the hop up window in the barrel
extended hop up contact patch
modified flat nub to properly and evenly apply pressure to the bucking and contact patch.
I use an 11.1v 2000mah 20c lipo. Because of the special rails, this is the largest battery I can fit in the gun. Thankfully the precocking system gives me exceptional trigger response, and removes the need for a larger battery.
I use .43g bbs, right now I'm specifically using Javelin bbs.
As for noise, the gun isn't as loud as one would expect. Using the .43s, and the slightly longer barrel allow for a very slight over volume. As such, the *pop* of the gun is quiet consider the fps it pumps out. As it stands, It's quieter than some stock guns, but by far, it's not the quietest gun on the field. Simply put, if I'm shooting at you, outside of 100ft, you are more likely to hear the bbs whizzing by then the actual sound of my gun firing.
And to wrap things up, I've often called it my rail gun, as many times running through the fields I play at, I'll look down and am greeted with this sight:
Makes me feel like I'm holding a rail gun or some sort of laser rifle.
Anyway, I'll wrap this up with some pictures from a previous time.
