So I had a chance to handle my very first "souped up" sniper rifle and it was the JG Bar-10. The guy I carpooled with to OP: Bad Blood is basically the armorer for FilForce and was telling me all about it. He said it's exactly the same as a Tokyo Marui and since you're upgrading it, why pay for a more expensive skeleton.

I chrono'd it myself at 514 fps and the difficulty in pulling it back REALLY surprised me. He claimed to have hit an egg at 150' at the Enduro challenge. From the paces I put it though, I have no reason not to believe him. There is the occasional stray BB, but for the most part, I was confident I'd hit a man at 100 yards every time (save that one BB in 10 that goes who know where...)

What he said he did:
JG Bar-10 stock
An accurizing kit from someone that hand makes them in the Philipines.
The barrel in the kit was 6.00mm
Shoots Marushin Grandmaster .29's ONLY
Fire Fly bucking

I'll be building this kit because I really liked the rifle. It replicated the classic Remington 700 look very well and was light and functional. I won't throw the crazy spring in there. He said it shoots a little over 400 fps out of the box. He said if you sealed up the cylinder and piston and all that, as well as "put a bushing behind the spring or piston", it shoots over 450 fps. I didn't think the difficulty in cocking was worth the extra distance eeked out.

When he gets me the link to that Philipino guy, I'll pass it on.

It costs him about $200 to build his rifle and he sells them on eBay when he needs some extra cash for $500...

Sounds good to me.

Edit: This sounds like the kit and guy right here...

Additionally, here's a grouping review of his barrel. The only one that came in at less than an inch group size at 150ft.

I was surprised when he said it was a 6.00 because I always read about the tolerances issue of the BB's. He said that's why he only uses the Marushin Grand Master .29's. He said they were $20 for 500 which is pretty expensive and leads me to believe they're pretty high quality. Of course, there is always the occasional bb that goes crazy.

I think with the upgraded seal and cylinder and spring and all that, there's the possibility that even if the bb is slightly malformed, it will at least get shoved out the end. Then the next bb might be accurate. I'll ask him if I can do a no BS review of it sometime.

The guy that I rode with up to the game. He goes by Hammer on the FilForce forums. That third link at the bottom of my first post shows a comparison of group sizes, and if the test is to be believed I don't see why it wouldn't be possible. With a 6.00mm tightbore and all upgraded internals the group size could theoretically be even smaller than the one from that linked test. In that test the 6.01 edGI barrel shot an average group size of 1.5" with the smallest being .75". EdGI also discusses the test a little bit in the 4 pages of discussion (which is mostly noobish and ridiculous).

Granted, I'm sure if you asked Hammer himself about the shot, he'd say it was one in a lifetime lucky. At the shoot he said he had it all zeroed and he shot and shot and shot and was getting pissed that his bb's were going all over the place and he couldn't figure out why after all that time and money dumped into the gun. Then one of the judges whispered to him that he was hitting the grass in front of him. He offset and hit it first shot.
