Im an experienced airsoft player and have played the sniper position before but dont have my own equipment. I was thinking of the Tokyo Marui VSR G-Spec and wondered that when i got this and wanted more fps then where and what parts would io buy? This is my first customization.. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would suggest starting with a JG BAR-10 G-Spec base instead. I've enjoyed the ones I've owned and if you plan on upgrading, why buy a rifle that is over $200 if you are just putting new internals in it anyways? That's what I was told about G-Spec shopping, so I'll pass on the advice. On another note:

There's a guide that gives you a general idea of what you'll need to upgrade for a specific level of performance.

Note: Mods, that guide thread might not be a bad idea to sticky in this section. Just a thought.

Hope this helps, and I'd be glad to help you with any other questions.

Moved to VSR-10 section. Depending where this thread goes, I might move this over to the "Clone" section. No ones doing anything wrong, as this could have been posted in several different sections, so no worries. ;)

Stickied the thread as we could use some valuable upgrade information for the VSR. Thanks Yankee.

If you know you are building for a high FPS, I would suggest starting your work in your Trigger Box. If you are on a budget, Airsoft GI Planter Enterprise parts give you solid performance at a fraction of the cost of premium parts like PDI and Laylax.

Upgraded Sears will be vital for a faster build, as they will be able to support stronger springs. I personally would not go above a 140 without them.

I've always been a fan of Laylax Pistons, such as the first following link. However, comparing my Laylax Orange Piston to my neighbors Airsoft GI PE Piston I found that they are extremely similar in quality. I personally would save the $30 and put it towards other parts in the build.

I really like Laylax's Damper Cylinder Head for both the fabulous construction and the Dampers which greatly reduce the weapons volume. You will want to wrap a small amount of either Plumbers Tape or Teflon Tape around the threads of your Cylinder Head to improve air seal.

For the most part, Spring Guides are all the same. I would go with the least expensive Steel Spring Guide you can find.

Much like the Spring Guides, Springs are pretty much the same brand-to-brand. I always waited to purchase a Spring until it is the absolute last piece in my build, so I have plenty of time to determine what is necessary to achieve the speed I want. You may start your build wanting a high FPS, but later decide you are fine where you are. I would put a little bit of foam where the end of the spring sits in the Piston to eliminate the "pop" noise that is made when the spring bounces between the Piston and the Spring Guide.

I used a EdGi 6.01 in my first G-Spec build and was very pleased with it. Especially for the price tag its hard to go wrong.

After trying nearly every bucking on the market, (KA, Nineball, Firefly Soft and Firefly Hard, Airsoft GI Extreme etc.) I fund that the stock TM Bucking preformed the best in all 3 of my VSR builds. I would suggest either a TM or Nineball Bucking, the Nineball being a close second. You will want to wrap a small amount of either Plumbers Tape or Teflon Tape around where the bucking meets the barrel to create a better air seal, improving both your rifles FPS and Consistency.

Barrel Spacers are a very important part to achieve consistency in a build. They fit between your inner and outer barrel to reduce vibration making your rifle more consistent shot-to-shot. There are many on the market, but I would purchase spacers that are the same brand as your tight bore to ensure a snug fit without modification. You can also make spacers by wrapping electricians tape around your barrel until the tape is wide enough to hold your inner barrel still within the outer barrel.

In order to reduce their rifles volume, many people will fill their stock with low expansion Foam, Clay or Newspaper to eliminate the "Echo" effect that hollow stocks create.

Please PM me or ask around the Forum if you have any Questions. Oh, and Good Luck! ;)

I have to say something about the springs ;)

Not all of them are the same. I can't remember the name off hand, but there is one brand that uses .25's to do the FPS of the spring. While most others will use a .20g bb. So make sure you know what you are getting.

I am kind of partial to the PDI springs. None of them have ever done me wrong.
