Hey guys, well i am having an issue with my vsr lately...

upgrades include:
laylax zero trigger
pss150 spring
laylax piston
firefly hard rubber
dees 6.01 tightbore
4 custom made barrel spacers
tefloned cylinder head

My rubber is alligned perfectly, and has been checked over and over. Both "nubs" of the V hopp ( i believe thats wat its called) of the firefly are seeted inside the hole of the barrel straight. Barrel has been cleaned, and shooting conditions are perfect, with little to no wind. I am using KSC perfect .3s. This problem wasnt really apparent until the dees barrel was put in. I have rolled the dees barrel on a hard surface to make sure the barrel has no bends, or dents, and it is fine. Any other ideas? Thanks,
baba

How new is the Dees? I assume its new since it sounds like you just put it in, so it may need to be broken in. I have heard of many people having issues until they get a few hundred, to even a thousand rounds. I assume also that you have cleaned the barrel as well as looked through it towards a window or light source to check for scratches.

Just some ideas I had, maybe its something simple.

i have put maybe 200 rounds through it...barrels shouldn't need to be broken it... the only broken in part that i can really think of is adding up of oil from bbs when shot (which is cleaned when the barrel is cleaned)...and in addition if the barrel has any protruding objects inside, the density of the barrel is much higher than that of the bb...so the bb wouldn't be breaking off any protrusions inside the barrel. So as to breaking in of a barrel, i am not sure if i understand correctly.

The barrel has been cleaned many times, i know how to clean my guns, and care for the barrels properly. I may just try getting some heaver bbs....but already as it is it takes a little too long for my bb to reach my targets, because on average my targets are 60 yards away. Heavier bbs would only increase the amount of time. I can upgrade to a higher fps...but i need the teflon cylinder, and honestly with my shortage of money (mainly thanks to prom lol) i cant quite afford one yet.

The stock cylinder is more than capable of handling high FPS, it's actually a very solid piece.

But Maverick is right, DB's Barrels usually have a break in period of so many hundreds of BBs. I'm sure Pearl can elaborate more, as he has more knowledge than I.

I had the very same problem last sunday at our game :( and after much deliberation found that what i thought was an accurately aligned barrel and hop rubber, wasn't. I'm quite lucky in that i run a G-Spec witha 490mm barrel so it was just a case of wipping off the silencer and turning the barrel with a pair of grips till it shot straight ;) Trust me when i tell you we are only talking fractions of an inch out of alignment here, it makes all the difference ;)

I'm pretty sure he's referring to the inner barrel.

Sometimes the way the barrel spacers are positioned can affect how your guns shoots. This also goes for the end cap you have on your rifle. Thread adapter caps are known to help the inner barrel stay nice and straight as well as reduce inner barrel rotation.

EDIT:
I forgot PDI makes a bunch of VSR caps. So you don't necessarily need a threaded cap, this will do fine to align your inner barrel:

In case you might want a threaded end cap:

More parts, including tighter barrel spacers, can be found here:

Yes, sorry didn't make myself clear :-[ Embed is right, I just take off the silencer, grip the inner barrel and twist in the opposite direction to to curve of the BB :)
