Heng Long Airsoft Upgrades
Well I made a nice well thought out post but I took too long and lost it! Arrgghhhh!!!
I've reached the limit on how to make the airsoft units more powerful. About 200fps and can break a paintball reliably against a hard verticle surface from 13 feet.
I think it's time we get ideas together to design an all new gun. Or has that already been done? Didn't someone recently mention that here?
If not, then how about a unit optimized for paintball (who wants their $300-$3000 tank shot full of holes?) say for a range of 25-30 feet. We'd utilize 6.04mm brass airsoft barrels, possibly larger motors, like the 180, 300 or even the 380 drive motors, try to use existing piston assemblies, etc. I would not use a hopup feature because of the paintballs and the desire for flat shooting trajectories. Everything's open for discussion and trials of course! This gun could be made from common materials or we could pay someone to produce them once the prototype is settled on.
What do you all think?
