I had pre-ordered the SSG96, and when I recieved it, I was happy with it at first, but then dissatisfied. It was loud, wasn't very customizable, and was pretty heavy, so I decided to sell it. I have decided to now buy a VSR-10, but I don't know wether to get a TM VSR or an SSG10. I already know im going to get a wolverine bolt-m for it, but there are other things to consider.

On one hand, if I got the TM I would upgrade the shit out of it, but with the SSG10 it's pretty good straight out of the box, and can still have parts replaced. Any ideas? All comments are appreciated!

I find a lot of people like to promote the SSG10 as the be all and end all for a VSR platform. And a lot of people buy it assuming they can just take it out of the box and instantly hit 300 foot shots with ease. But it doesn't really work that way. The SSG10 is a solid out of the box gun, but like any other one, it does need work done to it to reach that elite performance(despite what their marketing team will tell you). Not to mention that they appear to be hit and miss(there is a lot of poor QC that gets out and many complain of various issues with SSG's, if you had a bad experience with the 96, there's a good chance you'll have the same with the 10) So as stated above, get a JG Bar-10, save the money you'd spend for a TM, and use that towards upgrades (like the Bolt-M as you noted). If you're going HPA, you've already committed to removing about 80% of the "upgrades" the SSG10 has.

Seeming as you are gonna go down the HPA path, either the BAR 10 or CM.701 will be solid choices as bases, just dont forget to upgrade the hop up section and inner barrel.

Get the following parts
JG BAR-10 G-spec
Wolverine BOLT electronic/old style
BOLT airsaver kit
Action Army chamber
Action Army 430X6.01 barrel
Maple Leaf MR-hop 2021 85°
MASADA arm (from Shapeways or the guy on here)
And some diy stuff like a cylinder sleeve and so on.

This will be the best setup unless you want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a marginally better inner barrel and a one piece receiver and whatever else is out there, but that won't really do much else.
Just use the heaviest BBs you can buy(preferably BLS .48g) and play.

As for the tank, line, and regulator, I suggest the Polarstar MRS or MR, whatever air line, and a First Strike or Ninja 13/3000 or 26/3000 tank.
You will also want to fill the tank, and for that I would suggest a $50 4500 PSI hand pump, or one of the more expensive ones such as Hill or Benjamin.

Feel free to use different stuff, but this is what I have found to be ideal for me.

Alrighty then thats what I will do. But theres something else. In blind snipers video he shows how he converts from spring, to hpa, and to co2. I kind of wanted to do something like that because to me, having a bolt action isnt the same without pulling back the spring. Could you give me some info on how i can make a second build like that? Thank you so much for the info so far!

I would suggest the following in that case.
Action Army receiver
Action Army outer barrel
Action Army 380X6.01 inner barrel
Action Army hop chamber
MASADA arm
Whatever scope rail
Maple Leaf hop block
Bulltrigger or SCW trigger
Lambda cylinder set

It's a better idea to have two separate setups than one shared receiver, as you want to minimize the amount of wear on those threads.
I personally like to make a long nylon or Delrin sleeve and use that and epoxy to permanently connect the two, but that is just personal preference.

My brother was hitting the target at 300ft pretty consistently with his SSG10 straight out of the box. So uh, disagree.

But then again my $80 'crapshooter' also hits pretty consistently out to that distance too...
