  1. http://www.airsoftworld.net/ They have a bunch of Modify parts.
  2. As in retailers? I don't think so, but AirsoftPro.cz should be willing to ship to you. It just takes patience, anyone can do it.
  3. Oh wow, somehow I didn't get notified when you posted your reply. Sorry about that! I just had another go at logging into the registry and it worked fine. I must have had caps lock on or something last time. Thanks for letting me know about the Kanzens. They were going to be the next bearings I tried. I can't remember anything specific about those Modify gears, but I know they're prone to failure. When it comes to gears, SHS are just as reliable as other gearsets bar Siegetek. So either buy SHS or Siegetek, because anything in between is uneconomical.
  4. Woops, somehow I missed your post. Sorry about that. I also totally forgot about my promise to measure pistons, so I'll get on with that shortly. Thanks for reminding me. Thanks for sharing your list, it's good to know of a few more parts which work. I'd be cautious of using those bushings though, because RiotSC only recommends Modify tempered stainless steel bushings, or ceramic bearings. The gear axles are so hard that they will wear down other bushings over time. Unfortunately I can confirm that neither of Modify's 8mm offerings are compatible with Siegetek gears in the Masada
  5. I'm sorry if you got that impression. All I've been trying to do is clarify what you've been telling us. We are all trying to get the best out of our Masadas, so we need accurate information. Aaaah ok. That's interesting, because my stock bushings worked fine with those gears. However, in the past I received a Siegetek bevel gear with an axle that was slightly too thick to fit into any bushing. Apparently there can be imperfections in the coating process. RiotSC is very good about replacing faulty gears though, so manufacturing defects aren't a concern. Other users have reported no pr
  6. I guess some people are just not technically minded and don't understand the need for clarity. When it comes to technical matters, I stand by my previous statement: Vague descriptions are useless. Describing technical details in vague terms, the way you continue to do, is a waste of everyone's time. Your guy is not unique in his pursuit of perfection. All good professional technicians focus in on the smallest details in order to make everything work as well as possible. This is exactly what we're trying to do right now with the Masada, and you claim to have some helpful information about i
  7. Ok, now I know you've completely failed to understand everything I've been trying to tell you: VAGUE DESCRIPTIONS ARE USELESS.
  8. Sounds like he's being intentionally vague. I hate it when professionals try to hide stuff from their clients. It happens all the time unfortunately... People try to make the job sound more complicated in order to justify a higher fee. I guess the 'gear modification' thing is BS. Besides "maybe just some work here and there with sandpaper" is about as useless as you can get.
  9. ASM is about sharing information accurately. Everything has to be scrutinised, it's nothing personal. If you try to present misleading or vague statements as facts, it will get noticed. For that reason, it contains a goldmine of useful information which you can read. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing about what your tech did to your gears!
  10. For people skimming or just recently picking up the thread, it's confusing. You have to be clear in your posts otherwise they can be misinterpreted! BTW you haven't replied to the thread on ASM.
  11. Me too I don't think spares are available, which is a shame because it's been out for a while now. Lol! So why did you include the piston in your parts list?
  12. Thanks! Good to be able to add some more parts to the compatible list. I have a few questions: Did the piston go in at all? If so, specifically what modification was needed? If not, why is it on the list? Also, you mentioned over on ASM that the gears required modification. Can you specify what needed doing exactly?
  13. That would be wonderful! So where did 32 RPS at 410 FPS come from? Finally someone with some useful information! What else have you got running in your Masada? How's the performance?
  14. Yeah, it's *suitcase*. But I made my own which works nicely.
  15. I'm not heated up, I'm just keen to keep useless information out of this thread. There are many problems that are unique to this gun only, and we need to figure out with as much accuracy as possible how to get the most out of it.
  16. You appear to be suggesting that upgrading the Masada is as easy as any other AEG. What you don't seem to have understood is that the Masada is off the standard TM spec. This means that most aftermarket parts need careful selection and/or modification in order to become compatible. If you had worked on your gun personally, you would have realised this.
  17. The only reason anyone is talking about AEG tuning in this thread is that the PTS Masada is off-spec enough to introduce problems unique to this gun. Claiming you personally built yourself a great Masada doesn't help anyone figure out how to overcome these unique problems, because you didn't actually build it yourself and therefore don't know exactly what has gone into making it run nicely. I posted a reply to your post over on ASM by the way.
  18. That sounds about normal. Although it was your tech that actually did the work, right?
  19. First, set you hopup to minimum. Then remove the outer barrel, then from that take out the inner barrel. At one end of the inner barrel there's a rubber cylinder that fits over the barrel, this is called the bucking. Inside the bucking there is a mound which is supposed to sit inside the barrel (there is a window cut into the barrel for this purpose). As a BB is fired, the mount is the thing which causes the BB to spin, so the mound must be aligned with the exact top of the barrel. But if the mound is somehow malformed you will need a new bucking, so take a good look at the mound to make sure
  20. Higher torque equals lower speed. Higher speed equals lower torque. There's no changing that.
  21. All modern airsoft motor designs use neodymium magnets. Ferrite motors are obsolete and to compare the two makes no sense. Yes you can achieve good ROF with a torque motor, but at medium power levels you can use a HS motor with no loss of trigger response. All neo motors give relatively high torque.
  22. As with all high performance builds there is less margin for error when tuning. But if you're good at tuning and you use the right parts, you can happily run a gun at high speed for a very long time.
  23. The only reason for using one at that power level would be if you wanted to deliberately keep the ROF down, but that goal would be better achieved using a lower voltage battery or a computerized mosfet with ROF control. Modern neodymium magnet high speed motors can provide plenty of speed AND torque at the mild power levels being discussed.
  24. It really isn't needed to pull an M120.
  25. At these power levels, a high speed neo magnet motor like Element or SHS will give excellent trigger response.
