Hi everyone... a few of my friends bought airsoft rifles and i decided i wanted to learn how to be a sniper XD So i bought a MB05(i know its not great stock) and have plans already for parts(hop up,barrel, and bucking already on their way). My question as a newb is what should i upgrade next? the piston,cylinder,spring,and guide? or get a new trigger set up? Also anyone have a good website to get a decent ghillie?

Dont worry about the trigger, it has a plastic housing but the trigger sears are steel. I have been running 600 fps for about 2k rounds through my MB05 and the trigger is still tip top. It depends on what you want to do with it and your desired velocity. For accuracy get a tight bore, use heavy weight bb's, get barrel spacers, and a new hop up. the MB05 are fully type 96 compatable (not marui 96, or tanaka) so any after market parts that say type 96 will work. For fps upgrade then you will need to rebuilt the whole top end as well. I would recommend you start with the barrel and hop to increase accuracy.

and use at least .3 gram bb's if not heavier.

Welcome to the forum, please start capitalizing the letter "I" as well as following the basic grammar and punctuation rules.

As for the upgrade process, a new trigger unit is always nice, as the clones typically have a crappy box all together. The cylinder itself is not as important to upgrade, and I ran my stock cylinder for well over two years. The cylinder head is also something that does not need to be upgraded right away.

With that said, get a new laylax trigger unit, and then upgrade the piston and spring guide. Once you get some more cash, then you can get the new cylinder head and possibly the cylinder itself.

And as for ghillies, make one. ;)

Sorry about my poor grammer but i am aweful at it; however I'll try and be mindful of it from this point on.

Thanks for all of the advice everyone Im really happy i order a new hop up and barrel already because I broke the hop up arm while taking the gun apart this morning. I have one other question. Airsoft atlanta did not have any 509 barrels so I ordered a 534, which was the closest they had. Will I be able to use an adapter and silencer to cover the exposed barrel, or does the adapter not allow the barrel to pass through? I will eventually get a 60cm outer barrel but thats down the list.

The adapter attaches the suppressor to the outer barrel, and many use this combo in order to cover up the extended inner barrel. So you should be good to go. ;)

I have another question pertaining to something I broke. I don't know what it is called so I'll describe it. I broke a piece that was on the end of the inner barrel just before the bucking. It was a small plastic ring that was flush against the barrel besides to the left and right. The purpose of this ring was to keep the inner barrel aligned with the hop up chamber. Now for my question; Will either the hop up or barrel I'm getting on Monday have this piece? If not, can it be replaced?

I am almost positive that 'ring' is not required. It just helps stabilize the barrel and I believe increase consistency (less air leaks out).

You do not need that piece (if it is the one that I am picturing). Could you post a pic just so that we can make sure 100%?

I wish i could post a picture. I tossed it a day or so ago so its somewhere in the trash. I did some googling and found out its called the retainer ring and just keeps the barrel from spinning in the hop up chamber. The good thing is with the new PDI hop up I'm getting it is useless anyways because it will not fit in the hop up chamber with it attached.

Yep, that is the piece I was thinking about then. Yeah, the PDI hop up comes with its own sort of "ring" that acts as a way to secure the barrel as well as keep air from escaping. It looks a little different but applies the same purpose.

Ok that sets my mind at ease XD . Is it normal for cylinder to have some contact with the metal around it? By the way im sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions but after taking my gun apart I cant remember if it did before or not. Its nothing major mostly at the end of the bolt and not really the cylinder.

Yeah, it's natural to get a little scuffed after repeated use... the outside of the cylinder at least. Nothing major, or somethings grinding, and if the inside is scuffed, you are going to by a new cylinder, and need to check the piston for burrs.
