Since the VSR and VSR clones (like the JG Bar 10 have been the most popular base rifles for homemade marriages between WW2 era rifles and Airsoft bolt action systems I wanted to create a thread on the moust popular upgrades and after market enhancements our members have used with positive results.
I have done several dozen conversions of bolt action rifles with my most numerous projects being SMLEs and Springfieldx as well as a couple Mauser types. I have done vvery little by way of upgrades although I have found the upgraded trigger box worthwhile as the failure rate on these is quite high. There are many to choose from and I haven't used the same one each time.
For the purposes of this threadlease include if possible the specific part you added, if you remember the brand and cost as well as where you got it tht wpuld be great as well. With the JG Bar 10 the 410 to 420 FPS was adequate for my needs so I didn't add upgraded springs, tightbore barrels, pistons or hop up unts although in fairness with the heavier BBs that should be used in a bolt action rifle for accuracy and inertia an improved hopup would be a good idea.
I know several builders on here have done some fairly extensive upgrades on their rifles and I'd love to see us create a resource for others to learn from. i will include the new S&T Springfield in this as it is primarily VSR based. There are also no or low cost tweaks that can be done to these airsoft components so include these along with pictutes if possible.
The bolt action rifleman needs all the edge they can get so this should help!

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
