Does anybody know where I may be able to get an outer barrel for my G&G M14 SOCOM2?

Mine has suffered damage where it connects to the Upper receiver (or whatever you may call it) and is causing me to lose my air seal.

I've taken this gun apart a dozen times trying to find a way of correcting the problem but every time I think I've fixed it (when I put it together & it works) when I next pick it up, it doesn't work again.

By doesn't work, I mean I'm getting massively reduced power with my bb's going 20m rather than 50m.

Its a common fault with the G&G M14 to have a bad airseal at 1 time or another on the nozzle/rubber joint.

I have suffered from it with all 4 of the ones I have owned, and even had it on a mates CA I was re-building for him.

The only cure is a new hop rubber, making sure the lip is the longest you can get, and then carefully re-build it.

The first time I suffered with this I thought it was me or something I was doing wrong but after about the 6th or 7th re-build trying to use the same rubber, and several second hand reclaimed rubbers that I knew worked fine in other guns, I finally got pissed off and bought a new 1, fitted it, problem solved ::)

Well, it had a generic black hop rubber in it to start off with and I have changed that to Madbull red and I'm still suffering from the same problem.

--Edit--

Although, I am wondering if it has something to do with the new air nozzle I put in it... I will have to strip my GB down and change it back!

I will also check out a new hop rubber.

Get rid of the madbull red, they are shite, and every 1 I've ever fitted to any gun has caused miss feeds, the only thing good about a madbull red is the X nub that comes with them!!


I only ever use either stock TM or Guarder blacks, either are good upto 450 fps, but at that level I would stick with the Guarder for any longevity ;)

Right-o, I shall remember that in future. I only used the Madbull red cause it was all I had left. On your recommendation I will pick up a guarder black for a replacement.
