Well im new to the sniper world and am learning as i go. I need help building the best L96 Maruzen spring rifle which i define as great distance and accuracy.

I need help building the list of all the parts i need which i have an idea of what i need for the most part but would like experienced players in this fields opinnions.

One concern is im considering the PDI-Hop Up isntall, and need help with the R-hop i have heard about and its comptability and use if anyone has seen or done such a thing?

Any links with partsi should put in, and prices , and experience would be super helpful. As of now im looking at zero trigger boxes ora fijocustom.com bore up kit, and cylinder. THen a PDI Hop up system, a prommy 6.03 barrel for the L96 followed up with what im most confused of how to go about is the R-Hop install and use to make sure i get that just right.

Note: Im sorry if this has been covered i have just read so much starting to hurt a bit lol, would like a just straight reply to me on what to do as there is so much info floating around on the web. If you have links to other forums that could help thanks, but id enjoy a written out response on here instead of more info sifting through forums. Thank you all again.

Always start with the Hop up chamber, barrel, and trigger...
PDI Hop Up Chamber
High Quality barrel (PDI IMO) as for ID...it has been long argued about which is better...I personally have an EdGI 5.98 barrel and have no regrets shooting Madbull .40g out of it.
PDI V-Trig or Laylax equivalent...durability upgrade

Buckings: They say hard bucking...but I personally went with the PDI W-Bucking...despite that its soft you get better consistency and no time breaking it in. Depends on how hot you're shooting that will affect how long the bucking will last.

Nub: SCS Spacer

Cylinder/Head/Piston:
I went with the Raven Cylinder Set that came with spring guide + cyl + cyl head + piston...Unless you want to go with the Precision Set. The only setback is if you want to shoot hot, you cannot use the piston that comes with it (plastic) therefore cannot use the raven taper head as well (cone head not flat)...I'd use the stock cyl head and PDI HD Piston together with the set and save the rest for spare fallback.

Spring:
Depends on how hot you want to shoot...I'm using a PDI SPR 250% and was shooting 590fps with .20s (for testing). But its your preference as long as its a 11mm spring because the spring guide was upgraded to 9mm.

This was through experience and its your choice whether or not to follow.

I followed this thread as my basis:

r-Hop

Well what about the R-Hop have you heard of that being used in the pdi hop up as it cause use a standard art barrel? Cause I have
Headed those can upgrade your accuracy 150ft max in some cases.

But this does sound like a good start and I'm aiming for 550fps and up so is a hard bucking the choice?

I'm not too familiar with R-Hop...but from what I read the way it contacts with the BB is different.
Here's a thread:
http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/hop-installation-manual-t225374.html
another thing I'm skeptical about is that you have to modify the barrel window...no thank you lol...spent good money on my barrel just for me not to do it myself...

I find better consistency with the soft bucking...the hard bucking is supposed to be more durable...I am running PDI W Bucking...and for 590fps...it still looks good last time i washed it.

It's your choice really...
Soft bucking - little to no break-in time, more consistent, more prone to ripping at high fps setups...
Hard bucking - lots of break-in time, less consistent

Do some research on which bucking you feel would be good...I originally went prommy hard first...but loved when i converted to PDI W.

As for 550...after all durability upgrades, it mostly comes down to the spring and the ID of the barrel

What's the ID mean I feel so dumb for not knowing this lol.
And I'll go soft bucking but I wanna research the R hop up cause it puts a better spin on the BB and battles easy to get I work at an Airsoft field lol but o mainly have just done AEG's.

Pdi 6.01 for best consistency
Up to 6.05 for maximum range with acceptable grouping
The Pdi hop chamber along with a barrel upgrade would be the absolute best initial upgrades
Followed by a good cylinder set ie; Pdi HD OR VACCUM palsonite
And or trigger.....for the maruzen L96, I'd say avoid rebuilding or reinforcing the stock trigger as no matter what sears you change 90% of it will remain that cast material which will end up failing at higher velocities. I found the pss10 zero trigger to be the best option because of the extremely light pull (note that you will lose the safety feature)
Another important item is the back screw that replaces the load marking pin at the back of the cylinder you will lose the pin the tells you a round is in the chamber when moving to the high end upgraded spring guides and cylinder sets.
I hope some of my info is of use
Sorry for the long response, I stumbled on to this site while contemplating selling my 96
