    Stark-Arms/VFC Glock 19

    After a long battle, my Stark G19 came back from service and is finally working. The service guys had a second Stark from which they transplanted piece by piece until it started working. Turned out that the piston was badly manufactured and caused all the problems. A new one was ordered from WGCShop and installed and now my Glock is working as it should. On a sidenote - i was able to fit (with a bit of filing) an APS ACP601 outer barrel into my G19. I now have a threaded barrel and can attach a silencer! I was also able to fit a Marui G17 barrel into it. I think it's safe to assume any Marui spec outer barrel will work. However, it seems that the outer barrels from Stark G17/G18 are quite off from the Marui spec, and it seems that i wouldn't be able to make them fit.

    Can you compare the FPS output between CO2 and Green Gas? Also - do you feel that the original recoil spring can handle CO2 or would you advise a stronger spring?

    WGCShop has so many parts that you could basically build a g19 from scratch. And they are pretty cheap, too.

    Good eye you have there. Idd it seems these mags might be ambidextrous. One thing that bothers me just a bit - the images are a bit too small to say exactly, but it seems that this G17 doesn't full auto as the G19 has, which is a pity. I wonder of they fear that the G19 wouldn't be compelling anymore. EDIT: In the end i decided that i will give Stark another chance, and i'm ordering another G19. I sincerely hope that first one was just an unexpected dud.

    Interesting stuff. I was considering an APS Glock for quite some time, but it shoots to hot for most CQB places. I now cannot decide if i want another Stark G19 to see for myself if they are all bad, an APS one and try to lower the power somehow, or get a Marui G17.

    Didn't know about the incompatibilities. Thanks for the info! Out of curiousity - isn't it possible to just change the outlet valve of a APS magazine to make it less powerful? As for my G19, I am done with it. It was a month at a highly praised service-point. They simply couldn't figure out what's going on with it. They removed the full auto mode and stripped it down to a bare minimum to narrow down the possible issues. They sent it back to me and it was indeed working okay. But after two mags on the field, it again cannot even empty one full mag. My worst problem with those Stark Glocks is that it still seems like i have had really bad luck with my one (as the majority of the reviews are still very positive). I am tempted so much to buy another one and check for myself, but this might as well be another dud.

    I read somewhere that the ACP is such a gas hog that it doesn't even work with green gas mags.

    Why do you want to exchange the rod as well? It's pretty sturdy, and if it breaks you can buy another original one from WGCSHOP for 2 bucks. Regarding the spring, WGC mentions these as being "Stark compatible": http://www.wgcshop.com/wgc2008/main/product_detail1.php?search_From=searchItem&item=GD-GLOCK-109&search=special&rs=stark&catid=&cat=&view_choice=a Although i am not entirely sure about that, as i mentioned above that i also purchased supposedly fitting iron sights which don't fit at all.

    Yes, but emptying a 50 rds clip in half a second is totally worth it. Once it works, though. My G19 is in service for the third week now and it's looking pretty bleak right now.

    No Marui compatible outer barrel will work. I tried an APS ACP601 barrel and no chance.

    I have a pretty bad experience with this model. Mind you - this is my first GBB so troubleshooting takes some time for me. But at the moment i'm serously considering ditching GBB altogether once the Stark dies. First of all, the piston lid sometimes gets stuck in the cylinder when it's not thoroughly lubed. Even with gas containing silicone grease it jams quite often when it becomes dry. I ordered another piston lid from WGCSHOP and the problem got even worse. When i put those two lids next to each other there is a pretty huge size difference for such a small part. Next - very often the gas control valve would get stuck and all gas would go to the blowback and the bb would just lazily drop out of the barrel. Most probably thanks to the above problem the extending metal piece on the metal outer barrel broke off. Thank god i can still use the plastic barrel. This design choice is very weird imho, as every other company making airsoft glocks has a much more solid construction for this. The base plate of the magazine might be nice with the trades, but you have to remove it completely to fill gas into the magazine, and of course the base plate broke after a few dozen refills. After just a few days, i lost my rear sight which was very loose. I ordered some "Crusader Glock Sights" from WGCSHOP which were supposedly dedicated for Stark Glocks. The rear sight is VERY loose and i actually had to superglue it tight or i would just instantly loose it again. When i tried to remove the original front sight, i tore off quite a big piece of lacquer from the slide, as it was glued to it. Also from WGCSHOP, i bought this "Maple Leaf Upgrade Set" which consisted of a 84mm 6.03 tightbore, a hopup rubber and a springless high flow valve. This gave me 10 fps boost, but even with the strongest gas i have availlable the gun still shoots around 280 fps on the stock mag and 300 fps on WE 50 rd magazines. That's alright, but less than advertised. Cannot say anything about the range and accuracy with the Maple Leaf upgrades, as i wasn't using the Glock at all as unreliable as it is, and i just yesterday located the problem with the gas control valve.
  13. I would really hope someone would make a direct comparison between all the Madbull barrels. Especially the Ultimate 6.01 vs the Steel Bull 6.03, which are very similar in price. Both shoot apparently better than the Pythons...
