  1. Something from the local scene. Must watch for Polarstar and Scopecam fans.
  2. Hi, I don´t really understand what you mean by your posts first section. If you can please clarify, English is not my mother language. As to the other part - please read Facebook SMP owners post start by Austin Ray here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WolverineAirsoftSMP/ As you can read - I just acquired a brand new SMP V2. a brand new Gearbox shell and started to test fit everything one more time. Just to try out once more all the suggestions. So far I have tried 2 quality barrel and hopup setups with 2 hopup chambers. Nozzle aligned, hopup chamber neck bored etc. All thing imaginable.
  3. Tried swapping gold to stock poppet. Will put new o-rings to test out. If the pressure is inconsistent, then wouldn´t it appear in chrono results as well? 1) I did not ask Rich to troubleshoot someone else rifle, the owner of that rifle sent it to him AFAIK. I just want to know if there was an update. 2) I do not know if PS and Wolverine have sold 200k+ units or not. I do know there are other unhappy customers as well. 3) I would send, but then would cost as much as almost a second hand FE. It seems to (sorry if it is just me) that you are somewhat affected by the fact that you probably
  4. I understand. But you do have to understand that it is a 99% similar problem on many HPA users. I have very similar hopup-barrel-nub-chamber-body setups that I have built for many friends. All firing the same bb-s, using even similar mags. But all run AEG gearboxes. And guess what - not a single problem even remotely close to what you see in the videos. And then we have 2 SMP-s and 2 Polarstars that all exhibit the same "problem" in one way or another. All running different tank, reg and hose setups. So - the only common thing is HPA - either SMP or FE. So as it seems to me - as long as
  5. 3 degrees celsius outside. Full day of gaming and the SA G19 + SA Co2 mag held up perfect. Could fire almost as much as you wanted without cooldown. Really superb performance!
  6. Any news on this issue? Here is a new video of the same problem. In the mean time the rifle has been disassembled, lubed, fitted with a stock poppet and dual reg setup. Running 100PSI on the poppet and 70PSI on the barrel. As you can see nothing has changed. Next up - low pressure spring on the poppet and nozzle. I am really interested if the SMP similar problem can be eliminated since I might be doing a MG36 build with a SMP V3.
  7. I have only shot about 2 mag fulls worth, but: FPS is about 10m/s or 30FPS higher, which is just perfect. Recoil is fast and snappy, I will most likely try a 150% recoil spring in the future, but at the moment I would say it doesn´t need it.
  8. I bought a regular GEn.3 + CO2 mag. The recoil is just what I expected. Not too crazy (compared to a KJW CO2 1911 which kicks like a mule) but decent with crisp blowback and many many shots even in the cold.
  9. Hmm, first time I have seen this. Thanks for the info.
  10. Just got my S19 without trades. What is that small plastic piece that comes with metal outer barrel? Can not imagine a use to it.
  11. Just as a note. Room temp was 18C or 65F. I bored out all they way to bucking lip, left about 2mm material to support the lip.
  12. Here is second video. Please read YT description. I bored out hopup chamber neck with 8mm drill bit. At first results seemed betted, but when I dialed more hopup in, they went a bit worse again.
  13. ALl FCU settings can be had from the YT video description. I am doing all the shooting from warm room temperature. I am using ALU 0.8L bottle with stock regulator. Secondary is Balystic HPR800 regulator, set at 90 PSI giving 90m/s with 0.3g bb-s using Guarder 300mm inner barrel. The SMP is using Redline setup with Amped hose, kevlar bottle and high quality reg etc. Here is a dropbox link with SMP vids, also shooting vid! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sr7n6m5pf22hqif/AACh_F5FpmSJdtKpzoquAqGWa?dl=0#/ The SMP was double checked to have good grease and no burrs.
  14. Here is the video of first "base" test. Will try different things and upload videos as I do. Note: this test platform is my personal Polarstar Fusion Engine. But since exactly the same problems were on the SMP platform then I believe they are caused by the same problem. I have previously tried many mane barrel-chamber-rubber combos. Some have been slightly better, others worse. But all of them had some kind on "problem" similar to seen in the video below.
  15. I didn´t understand if the whole post was a reply to mine or Jal3`s. Anyhow, just to make it clear. I have sold every other rifle and think that Polarstar (general HPA) setup is superior in airsoft due to many factors such as trigger response, noise level, range etc. Pretty much THE ONLY thing right now that I have found is "odd", is the under hop that I have got sometimes. Now the SMP platform that I tested and tried to fix was a friends. But as they had similar issues, I brought both into my discussions. PDI-W hold rubber - I have had great success with them, except in the SMP.
  16. Hi Rich, glad to see people like you trying to solve problems on public forums. You said about tolerances being out of range. Can you please verify that exactly should be the nozzle length e.g. for a M4 nozzle in a SMP? Also - you should have an indication what the FPS should be at certain PSI, just for reference. Since we (I am) are talking about FPS stability +-1FPS or even less then that I would say that air seal is good. Also the FPS is about right. If I can remember correctly it was 80PSI 0.2g 110m/s (360FPS) maybe? Something like that. Why I think it is somehow related to bb being push
  17. Good thread! In fact I and a friend of mine have experienced exactly the kind of problems you are facing with. A few days ago I wrote on BingoAirsoftworks FB wall, but haven´t got anything back from there. Either way - I have a Polarstar FE Gen3 Ver2 in my Lonex M4 body with Lonex hopup chamber, Prometheus purple rubber and PDI barrel. Friend has SMP in a VFC HK416, guarder barrel, prometheus rubber and VFC stock or Prowin chamber. SMP is bad, at higher PSI-s like 100PSI it really is bad. At lower like 60-70PSI it is playable , but nowhere "good". My Polarstar - same. At higher PSI like 1
  18. Well if you insist. SummerCamp 2014 Piirsalu official video by the staff as well: People are welcome for next years event. You can find the base are map attached to this post. Main base is about 1km x 400m size. The buildings played in the second part of the video are in the center section of the map. There are lots more! Base camp was at the 300m firing range on the east side.
  19. I usually don´t post Videos, but this one is actually good in my own opinion. Maybe a tad long, but still full of action. Filmed with a spanking brand new Sony AS100 in PRO mode (50Mbps) and secondary scopecam is a GoPro Hero 2 filming at 720p 60FPS with a HackHD 35mm lens.
  20. It should be normal. That sector gear catches tapet plate before the piston. It is very hard to stop the motor exactly after the shot is fired and before in catches tapet plate again. You can experiment with different active braking limits, but I don´t really see the point.
  21. What battery/spring/gears/motor combo are you using? Probably strong motor and 11.1V battery. In that case this is normal. You have to start using Active breaking. That will in turn make more heat and strain certain components.
  22. Just a small update with a youtube vid. Read the description. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSq_Js96gOY&feature=c4-overview&list=UUNefBzkMrdiHQq26KnfPnuw
  23. Another happy weekend game with the BTC Spectre is behind with good results. I have no cons to point out except for maybe one - when I use regular semi and Burst auto hybrid (you tap the trigger, it fires a burst, you hold the trigger and it continues in full auto) then the full auto comes with a small delay after the burst. I wish it was instant, but is is not. Can anyone confirm that this is the same on your Spectre? Can still recommend this product.
  24. http://www.btcairsoft.com/spectre_v2gb 100 bucks, though out of stock already.
