Tokyo Marui AWS L96

6089 Views 9 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  indycar
I just recently bought my first sniper rifle and new to upgrading. The part list I bought is: 6.01 Precision Barrel, Cylinder, Cylinder Screw, Cylinder Head, 7mm Spring Guide, 550 FPS Spring, High Pressure Piston, Trigger Sear, Piston Sear, Spring Guide Stopper.

Note: I want to buy supplemental springs but don't know the best quality and performance springs that can achieve 400 FPS, 450 FPS, and 500 FPS and fit with my tuning kit without replacing these parts. If you can provide links, not sure if allowed, but if you can please guide me to the right path on the products that will be helpful. I personally want three springs that achieve this FPS due to chrono test and different facilities rules without going over or make it to low.

For more detailed description on each one you may go to novritsch website and check the tuning kit for the Tokyo Marui AWS L96. This may better assist you in helping me. (Please do not bash in this product and only give me advice in upgrading what I already have)

I have several questions:

1) I want to upgrade my Hop Up to withstand .40 BB, how can I do this and what do I need?

From a recent question to novritsch this was their reply:
Hello, The R-hop mod is only needed if you want to use very heavy BBs like 0,46g and heavier. Otherwise you don't need this mod. Just go with the normal hopup, accuracy is the same so you'll be fine.

2) I guess question 2 is part of question one, but from what I see people use in their TM VSR 10 the following identical parts: Action Army VSR 10 Hop Up Chamber, Nineball hop up bucking, and R hop + m nub. My question is, can I use this as well for my TM AWS L96 without a problem(extra parts, fitting, functionality, etc.)? Please be in mind of my tuning kit before answering

3) What do you guys recommend I should upgrade after seeing all the parts that will be included in the gun?

4) Because I am asking for help and clearly do not know if sharing links is possible, but can you can direct me with key words to put in google to search a specific product name which essentially be like giving me the link? I spent hours of search and you guys probably know exactly what I need and find it in two seconds haha. I'm new so bare with me.

5) As stated earlier, I'm looking for three springs that can achieve these FPS with my upgrades without going over the limit: 400, 450, and 500. Where and what spring only product can I find that is compatible with my tuning kit?

Any other questions from you guys I'll be happy to hear. Please advise to only answer the question without any negativity and if links are to be provided please post in stock items only. Live in the USA.

Thank you.

To explain further why I have used the Novritsch product is because when googling an idea of upgrades for this gun:

6.01 Precision Barrel, Cylinder, Cylinder Screw, Cylinder Head, 7mm Spring Guide, 550 FPS Spring, High Pressure Piston, Trigger Sear, Piston Sear, Spring Guide Stopper.

I couldn't find anything in the most popular websites (evike, redwolf, etc) that sold these separately specifically for the Tokyo Marui AWS L96, either that or it was sold out and to be restock who knows when. I wanted to ensure myself getting a product that was in stock before it disappears. This is because I didn't want to wait for parts and compete with others in snagging them and only to modify them to make them fit. Even if they were to fit specifically for the gun I would still have to compete to get them or they would be sold out again.

Can you explain why this product has its flaws with the concept of breaking down the parts I given: TOKYO MARUI L96 - Upgrade Kit - Tuning Kit

Please note: I do not disagree with you or agree with you or even promote him. As I am new, I just want to know why some people disagree with this product I have chosen.

Also, I already purchased this tuning kit (on its way to my house) and it is not like I'm dead set on keeping it. I think I could return it. But let's say I can't. Using redwolf youtube video as a source (you may skip to 4:25 in video):

Again to go back to your response, you state using maple leaf as a good quality hopup bucking, but is there a difference in Lonex and maple? I heard that some say that lonex trumps maple. Again I do not know and ask anyone's opinion.

Also, you state: "get a good quality hopup bucking and that's it." For my own clarification, do I need to get a hop up chamber or the stock one is good enough if I want to lift heavier bbs like .25, .30, .40.

Does this gun even sell a hopup chamber with a R-hop+M nub, if so where and provide link? (R-hop in your video is apparently the best)

Note: I did see your video and made the effort to read your information and you did state that the diamond maple in your opinion is the best. Please anyone answer my follow up questions which collides with my first post. Thank you.

Thanks again for your help!

The diamond one is the one you preferred over the delta rubber, but with the specs/ upgrades I given towards my gun what kind of angle rubber should I attach?

What do these angles even entail in the sniper performance? Diamond 50, 60, 70, 80.

I want to shoot mostly .25 and .20 BB but want to shoot .30 in the future.

What do you reccomend?

These are my local Rules:
FPS: 400 fps w/.20g BBs
Snipers are up to 500 fps w/.20g BBs (100ft minimum engagement distance)
Safety kills or surrendering are not required.

I never partipcated an outdoor field, but if it says .20, I don't think I can use/substitute while playing . 30 or .40.

Can my novritsch gun upgrades even handle this heavier BB load with Mapleleaf diamond upgrade? I bought the 60 and is the exact one that I provided the link above.
