Need some long range help (APS-2)

Well, I've been out of the game for quite some time. I'm re-kindling the fire of Airsoft Sniping now out in California and well. I'm having something of a problem here. The problem being that I have incredibly low power it seems long range. I'm lucky to get maybe 20-30 feet before the hop up almost shoots it down. I've tried adjusting in large increments both ways and have yet to receive any justice to the problem at hand.

Here's what I'm shooting, essentially:
- Laylax APS Cylinder
- Laylax APS Piston & Piston head
- Laylax APS Taper Cylinder Head
- Laylax APS Spring Guide
- Laylax Reinforced Bolt Handle
- Laylax PSS2 Zero Trigger
- Laylax Power Accuracy Cup
- 400mm 6.01 Edgi Barrel Ported
- Promethues red Hard bucking
- Big-out H nub
- Laylax 150 spring (About 500FPS)
- PSS2 Aero Chamber

Long story short it's got the upgrades, almost $1000+ worth, but I'm not getting desired range right now. Or any for that matter.

I've also got a PDI Hop up at my disposal here that I could try and switch out, but I don't think it's the hop up unit itself, maybe just an adjustment I might have done incorrectly. Worst case scenario I take it to Airsoft extreme in San Diego and they charge me some rediculas rate and tell me more is wrong with it than it really is and I walk away mad but with a working weapon.

Thanks again for any help I can get here,

I am assuming that you had the rifle stored while you were deployed?

You may want to check the rubber on your piston, cylinder head, and your bucking.

Over time they will harden and shrink a little bit. This could cause some serious compression problems with the rifle.

I am sure that the spring wasn't compressed over the storage time. But you may want to think about replacing the spring all together.

But I would start with a good lube and see what happens.
I would head to a hardware store man.

Get a pack set of various o-rings. That way you can find the one that you need, and have a few extra for other things.

And then head to the small bolt section, and find one that is a little bit larger than the one that was in there. I would also look at getting a small tap and dye set. Find out the size of your bolt and tap your reciever.

Many places will have those litlte drawers that you can buy single bolts in. I know lowe's and hope depot have these. Take your trigger mech screws and go searching.
