I know… classic VSR10 right curve. I’ve read 40 million posts about VSR10’s inherently having the “right curve curse”. Well I just recently purchased a Maple Leaf MLC338 Deluxe Edition. It shoots amazing and I was reaching out to targets at 200 feet no problem. Well today i threw in a 170 SP spring from Laylax and started testing it out and found my bb’s were curving to the right about every 3 shots (no it’s not the wind). I’ve disassembled it and reassembled it 20 times but cannot seem to find the problem. The barrel has been cleaned and I guess I just don’t know where to turn from here! Any help would be much appreciated!

It used to be a thick red aluminum arm, then thin aluminum, now steel sheet.

If you can afford to replace it, get an Action Army chamber, Autobot 2021 70*-85*, and make my nub, you'll have way better results.

I know I'm late to the post...
But I own the same rifle
Did you teflon tape the bucking to the barrel? If it tugs at it the wrong way, it causes a shift in how the bucking interacts with the bb

Additionally, were you saying it shoots right ever couple of shots? or always shoots to the right?

Hey sorry I’m just seeing your response. I Teflon taped the barrel, slid the bucking over the tape and then wrapped floss around the end to keep it tight. And then put another thin layer of Teflon over the floss. I’m getting the same result. Consistent right curve shots every two or three shots. Still not sure what’s going on

Also, do you run the stock ML hop up chamber or are you running something else?

I'm using the stock ML hop up chamber. With the stock arm. It's been a while since I opened it up, but I'm nearly certain I have the maple leaf nub too.

I don't know how you were able to get that many wraps of teflon on. I don't use the dental floss trick. The tolerance between my bucking (I replaced with a maple leaf MR 2020 70 degree bucking), and chamber were too tight. I had at most 3 wraps and I think it was more like 2. Anymore and my chamber won't close.

Ahhh okay. Yea I got two layers of Teflon on the barrel and two on the outside of the bucking. My hop up arm and nub are all one piece. I took everything apart again and reinstalled and it seems to be shooting okay now. Prob still going to try the AA chamber and Masada’s arm though

I know people here are all about that...but if you can consistently hit your target at 225-250ft...don't mess with it

If it works it works...it's not worth the headache

I use to be like you, trying to squeeze every oz of potential out of my platform, but at the end of the day...all that can be resolved by pulling another shot.

If you're new to sniping/airsoft, get use to the playing style first, those minor performance bumps are only helpful for people who have their A game in every other aspects (positioning, movement, situation awareness)
