Tokyo Marui HK416D

I use .28's in my almost stock socom (pommy barrel) and the range and a accuracy is excellent. Try them yourself as you already have .28's for your other gun.

I don't have a .25s right now so I'll run .28s for my next skirmish.  I'm thinking about upgrading the barrel to a 363 6.03 and trying out the firefly nub/hop up rubber.

Chronod mine today at circa 285 with a Prometheus tb and hop set for 0.25s.

Got the firefly hop bits coming so will fit those and retest power/range/accuracy then ill fit an eagle6 m100 and rewire at the rear.

Currently getting 13rps with a 7.4v 25c lipo. With a stronger spring but then wiring with less resistance I imagine ill get around the same maybe a touch higher.

Anyone know if the buffer tube cap can be unscrewed easily or does it need that tool on echigoya?

Trained with it for the first time today and all I can say is "wow". Probably the finest gun I've ever owned. Definately a notch up in quality from the VFC 416. And the VFC definitely did not put the same smile on my face. Expensive, but well worth it.

 

@GingaNinga You already sold yours? I guess it was more of a fling than an affair? ;-)

My dustcover won't close unless I push the little locking tab down with my nail. Odd as it worked well yesterday and today it just wouldn't close without help. Not that it's big issue just wondering if anyone else had this problem.

 

fire one shot in semi.. if the gun is in a half cocked state it wont close.

No the gun is in relaxed position the bolt is forward:

The tab just doesn't get pushed down automatically when I try to close the dust cover.

So I did a barrel swap with a Madbull 6.03 363mm and just left the tm hop up nub and rubber. Did some test shooting and the hop up has significantly less effect. I double checked before I reassembled and I could see the nub pressing down on the rubber through the barrel.

 

Is there something I'm missing? Are Madbull barrels incompatiable with tm ebb hop up units?

All hop cut outs / windows are different , you could always open the window up a little so more hop rubber comes through when the hop is wound on.

PDI w-hold or Prometheus purple. Both will need to be shortened slightly but it's a two second job.

So after putting the stock barrel back in, I'm pretty sure that the space is a tad too small for the nub to make good contact with the bb.  Thankfully the range and accuracy with the stock barrel is no slouch.  I think I'll try filing it down, or just get a new barrel.

Hey guys, sorry to barge in on the thread. I really badly want a blowback 416, GBBR is basically out as a) I live in the UK where it's often a bit chilly, and B) being locked to lowcaps makes it difficult for me to play in non milsim games. So I had more or less decided on the TopTech one, but I've literally just found out about this one. Can anyone offer any insight as to whether it's worth paying the difference to get the TM over the TopTech?

 

Cheers

J

Well, do you care about realism features such as bolt lock, having fun at each shot because of the recoil, and having real size magazines - that fit better in magazine pouches?

Well the top tech does have EBB, but I do care if the TMs blowback is drastically better. Bolt lock, mag size, and trades are all nice too, but blowback and gun quality are the main things.

The TopTech's EBB is purely cosmetic and not even remotely comparable to Recoil Shock - I've shot both and it's not even close to close. The TM absolutely monsters the G&G, and so it should, given that it's much more expensive.

Thanks for replying PureSilver, it's great to get info from someone who's fired both. Well that pretty much sways it then. The only other thing that might convince me otherwise is if the top tech was noticeably more accurate or better built. I assume that isn't the case given TMs reputation, but figured I should ask anyway!

TM hk416 is worth every penny. Aside from the quality, it will last much longer and give you less headaches. TM new hopup is amazing. All the notable features is icing on an already delicious cake :P
