    I recently purchased a DBoys Scar L "boneyard" gun from a friend. I'd like some help on fixing her up and getting her to Las Vegas field standards. So far, it doesn't fire. I'm trying to push 370-380 FPS, field use, nothing insane for ROF, etc. Pics will be added through the process. Thanks for your help.

    Sorry for the bump but does anyone have a hop up upgrade solution to a DBoys MK16? I'm looking around for other units, but everywhere is out of stock. Is the stock unit ok to upgrade?

    When you say hop up upgrade, what do you mean? The unit itself or the bucking etc? Most m4 hop ups are compatible with Scars. A buddy of mine has an Echo1 Scar and he put in a nice hop up from his extra parts m4. You can buy fairly nice hop ups for 30-40 bucks on Airsoftgi or Evike.

    Many people tell me they're proprietary and plastic garbage. I'd like a whole unit for more reliability.

    It looks like your only other option is getting a VFC hopup unit which arnt that special. No after market units from the look of things. Your only option is looks like is replacing nub/bucking and maybe doing some DIY mods to it

    Echo1 makes a metal hop up that is 25 bucks on Airsoftgi... Very good price and a nice unit... I have used one and it works pretty good. I would suggest that one... Maybe a new bucking for 10 bucks and you will be set.

    I'm still new to teching. DIY mods? Overall will it be reliable? I don't want to work on a gun that will constantly give me problems.

    So you're saying even if I upgrade and replace everything, it will still be crap?

    No, if you upgrade everything, it won't matter, what you bought is a shell and a few broken and stock parts.

    200th post!!!

    My dboys scar was out of commission for about 6 months, Now it is fixed and I kinda want it gone (maybe). Replace the piston, piston head, wiring, cylinder head, bushings, air nozzle (if you can find one with an o-ring), and spring. You'll also want to correct AOE, compression mods, reshim, relube, and polish the gearbox. As far as the hop up goes I'm in the same boat as you. I was thinking about the madbull ultimate hop up.

    Ok guys, I'm going to need a lot of help with this. First, the stock wobbles to the point where I can't keep it locked down. Second, some of the screw are stripped, more towards the rails. Last, this god awful red tiger paint job. Thanks guys, this is gonna be a long one...

    Whew! You should've bought a VFC Scar. More expensive but totally worth it. But you definitely have a project gun here :p With few aftermarket parts made (in comparison to m4, and g36)

    I'll have to try. Externally I can have it painted no problem. Everything else, where would I look for parts? It's a V2 gearbox, what should I be looking into?

    Btw I didn't buy a VFC because this was a $40 junker from a friend.

    Haha everyone hate on me now!!! Airsplat.com has those Scars in their boneyard all the time... Usually like 50-60 bucks. Just swap necessary parts... If not... Airsoftgi and Evike sell a bunch of version2 parts.

    You're alright man... We gotta start somewhere. Personally... I like GI because of their customer service, but Evike is cheaper. What Exactly are you planning on upgrading?
