MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

Recommended Posts

The gun has amazing externals, but internally its nothing special. It has a lot of gimmicks and cool features but in my opinion lose excitement fast. I'm already selling mine, but a large number of people love their ACRs, sadly I'm not one of them. But I wouldn't base your decision off my opinion.

 

 

Internaly, whats wrong?

Nothing wrong, just nothing amazing. IMO if you can afford it, you can afford to upgrade it.

 

+1 on what hmg9194 says. I bought mine knowing I'd probably upgrade it's internals. Stock it's not too bad especially if your looking for a high ROF/CQB weapon. It shoots well out-of-the box.

Uhm I believe I cut like the first rib off and that's all, just keep fiddling with it until you find the sweet spot, not that hard to find.

 

I trimmed a Gaurder bucking by using the stock bucking as a guide.

Found this part on Digikey. The rating isn't quite as high, but looks like it would work.

I'm a little late to this conversation, but Digikey has microswitch with higher continuous amp rating than 11A. You should be using at least the same 15A microswitch that shows up in airsoft gearboxes.

They also have ones all the way up to >20A.

Or you guys could just put a mosfet in... :/ good to know for replacements though.

 

@Saint - thanks. As long as it's Normally Closed (NC) then it should work.

 

@hmg9194 - I have a AWS Sentry in mine. I was having issues with it when I first installed and it turned out to be a bad soldering job on my part with the signal switches and the micro switch. I've also seen that the burst mode isn't working too well due to some micro switch bouncing causing issues with the AB part of the MOSFET. The feedback from AWS and the forum at Airsoft Mechanic is that the switch is not that good and a replacement should fix the problem. I may be doing this mod in a few weeks but it's running so darn good I hate to open it up again unless I have to.

Anyone used the green label Pmags/emags midcaps (the ones made by star) with Magpul Masada? Do those fit and feed well? I've read most of the topic (even used the search option) but didn't find the answer.

With this gun, it makes you WANT to buy the premium pmags. They click in like no other mag I've ever experience. Sometimes I even just sit there and keep putting it in and out :P

I'll second that. I thought about buying some green label PMAGs but with only 75 round vs. 120 I'd like to carry less with me if at all possible.

 

I have a team mate who has some of the green label mags. I'll see if he can loan me one for the day and see how it feeds.

I did buy those for the Berget 9 game and I must say they are better then expected. Needless to say that they are not as nice as the PTS ones but they do get the job done in case of performance. Only drawback is the big tolerance. With six out of 10 I can make a speed reload - the last four do not fall out by pressing the magrelease. Second drawback might be that you can't use the original PTS rangerplates as you need to buy the Star ones.

Other than that they have a nice surface, good grip and the colour is fine too. Last but not least they are a lot lighter as the PTS ones.

They just don't have the Masada-feeling to it.
