JG Bar-10 Accuracy Probs

6933 Views 24 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Milli
First off, I am new to sniping. I recently bought a JG Bar-10 rifle. I like everything about it, except for the accuracy. I measured my shooting distances, and the rifle is perfectly accurate at 105 feet. However, at 150 feet, the rifle is very inconsistent. The scope has been dialed (at least, the best it can), but it is still shooting pretty bad. On occasion, I will have a shot spin off to the left or the right, hitting up to 10 feet away from the target. I've read that with this gun, I should be able to hit a head sized target from 150 feet. That is not the case. I am using .25 High Impact Crosman BBs. Is it possible it is the BBs? I doubt that, as they are seamless and appear perfect in shape. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! I'll try the TDC mod. Will Golden Ball .25 BBs work well with the stock rifle? I just bought some from Airsoft Atlanta.
Golden Ball should work just fine. I have not used them personally, but i know quite a few guys on here swear by them.

The TDC is a required mod in my book. It will fix 95% of the problems with the hop up, the other 5% is bucking and hop arm.

Speaking of hop arm you should replace yours. the stock arm will destroy your bucking.
What is the cost of a new Bar-10 compatible hop arm? I'm also a little hesitant to try the TDC mod in fear of damaging my gun..
Thanks for the advice Plazma. I will definitely look into the TDC mod. If it improves accuracy, it's worth it. My shots are currently all over the place.
I also have another question. Experienced snipers: what are the differences between the Crosman .25 bbs and the Goldenball .25s? They are both the same weight, and are seamless.

Also, will my stock Bar-10 shoot the .25 Goldenballs accurately? Or do I need the .28s? Thanks.
I'd need .3s even with the stock rifle? It's shooting in the low 400s, if I had to guess. Would those BBs really affect the maximum range of the gun?
Yeah .3 minimum, don't worry about your fps. I've started using .3 in all my aegs, went from .3 to .4 in my bar 10. Tdc and a dangerwerx hopup arm will help a lot
Are the TDC and hopup arm the only upgrades you've done while using .3s? So no FPS boosters (springs, tbbs...)? And which improves accuracy more, the tdc or the hopup arm?
Ok thanks. I had no idea the bar 10 is that upgradeable. I think eventually I'll upgrade the spring and whatever else I need to accommodate the power increase, whatever those parts are.
I'm sending mine in for a replacement. Not because of the accuracy, but every few shots the bolt gets stuck. And I mean stuck. (Lube didn't help.) It's not the stock or anything, it's just frustrating. Too bad airsoftmegastore is on the other side of the country. I'll have a new one in two weeks, hopefully. Until then, I'll just bring out the old G36c.
I think I'll go with a replacement. It seems I've got a stock lemon.
I didn't want to start a new thread just for this, seeing as how it'll show up in new posts anyhow.

I'm considering purchasing nineball bucking for my bar 10 (once repairs are done) to see if that will improve accuracy. How much, if at all, does this type of bucking improve the accuracy?

I'm not trying to sound like an idiot, but what exactly does a bucking do? it holds the bb in place before firing, right? and would I have to make any mods to my gun in order to accommodate this bucking? and how do I even install it? and i'm not even sure whether I should go with firefly or nineball. those two are all I hear people talking about.

sorry about all the questions, any help would be appreciated.
thanks, Boosted! I'll order the nineball as soon as my gun comes in.
