Hi guys,

I've owned and worked with two JG bar-10s, but have never actually owned a VSR-10.

With the VSR-10, you need to drill the cylinder pin out to take the cylinder head off. What is the easiest way to go about doing this without damaging my rifle?

Also, will a stock VSR with a few DIY mods be able to lift my Madbull .36g ammunition, or will I have to go out and buy something less heavy?

Thanks!

A shim inside the hop up arm will allow use of heavier bbs.
Thanks. I've shimmed the hop up arm and chamber already, but didn't think it could lift heavier ammo.

I think he meant to shim the nub so it is a bit longer. Or he meant to shim the space in the arm where the pin goes to move it up and down so it will press harder on the arm. Either way would work.

I woiuld do a TDC to it, unless you want to keep it externally stock because it isn't a clone. Then you wouldn't have to go through the trouble of shimming anything.

For the best job I would use a pillar drill.Find a machines shop/work shop with one near by.Its only a 2 second job and I'm sure they would do it for free.
Wouldn't be that hard to do with a hand held drill if you put the cylinder in a vise, wrapped in a towel or somthing to prevent damage of course. You just have tp make sure it straight as possible.

You can do it with a hand held drill, but he asked what the best way was, and using a pillar drill is the easiest and most precise way.

"2 second job" It It depends on how good you want to do it. I took my time and I got off just the right amount.
As above its very simple with a pillar drill and does actually take less than a minute if you know what your doing.

Line up the pin once its clamped and lower the drill slowly,lift and drill again if needed.
Using a pillar drill will do it a lot better than any other method.

If you have access to a drill press (aka pillar drill) it's the easiest and most precise way to do it. There are also less things to go wrong with it than with a hand drill. I have tried making straight holes with a hand drill in metal ands wood, and it's not easy.

First time I did mine I used a centre punch and a big ol' hammer. Stuck the cylinder in a vice and hit the pin with the punch. Took about forty five seconds from start to finsih... and worked a treat.
2nd time I had to do a TM cylinder I tried a bog-standard electric hand drill. Got a bit the right size, put the cylinder on the floor, put my foot on it and drilled that pin out in 2 seconds...
No need to over think the job lol.

My younger brother's school has some pillar drills so I'll just take it down there! Any idea what size the pin is (mm)?

Thanks!
