Has anyone been able to obtain a gas cylinder for there vsr-10? If not has anyone seen one or have any facts about them? Theres very little knowledge on them and i just found out that they existed today. They seem sold out on every shop online. Personally i think its a bit strange but what the heck, so any help guys ?

The whole downfall of gas rifles is them not being consistent at all, so people tap them for HPA. Now where is the point in taking your nice, consistent spring rifle, and making it a gas rifle, which isn't consistent at all?


Although, it would be fun to mess around with.

Ease of bolt pull, very short bolt pull, quiet muzzle report, less vibrations throughout the rifle, etc.

It would ONLY be worth it if it were tapped for HPA. You gotta remember, there are both CONS and PROS with both types of systems. Personally, I'd take spring over an HPA powered rifle because there's less to think about with the whole set-up.

I've seen a VSR-10 with a gas bolt on another forum that looked pretty good. He managed to custom make a CO2 tank and keep that and the reg inside his stock.

Not trying to troll or anything, but why get a gas VSR-10?
It's not like they're bad performers in the first place, but they do feel very toylike.
If you haven't already got the VSR, I'd recommend getting a Tanaka rifle, they have (IMO) the best feel to them, and it is probably much easier to convert it to HPA/Co2

I actually have a gas bolt. Short story short, it's a piece of crap. After replacing the inlet valve, thinking that it would solve the leaking problem, I found that it was leaking at every junction in the tank inside. I took it entirely apart, cleaned the entire thing inside and out, and re assembled with teflon tape every where. It still leaked. I set it in a box and haven't touched it since. I may just open it back up and see if I can't do something about it. The upside of it was the bolt pull was extremely light, due to it not having any resistance till the push(like the Dboys Kar98), and the bolt only traveled back about an inch and a half. The valve is on the side of the bolt, but it gets covered by the receiver when the bolt is closed. I don't think you would be able to drill and tap the back of the bolt, as there is very little room. I have considered getting a cheap clone rifle and just grind out where the hose would sit. I may still do this in the future if I can get it to not leak and work properly.

You mean a VSR set up for an external rig like this one? ;) It can be done, and isn't to hard to do. Just a little bit of milling and you are good to go.

Quigly.... Have you looked at the O-rings inside, and tried to replace them? That would be a fun project to work on. If you don't want to do it, let me know, would be willing to work on it for you
