    wow, TYSON. that's what i'm looking to get, buuuut that price tag is a little too cost-prohibitive for my budget. that's why i'm trying to find someone to be able to stick a springer system, into the replicas that i posted the pic from.

    That's the problem with specialty guns. The market is just not there for them. And their cost is close to that of a real gun. I had about the same amount of luck trying to get an M1 garand. For what the airsoft version cost, I could have bought the real thing.

    I actually just might have to buy this..... I wonder if it can take upgrades? 244 FPS is way too low for what I'd be using it for.

    What would you be using it for? How does this work? Do you load a bb per shot?

    That type of rifle would qualify as a sniper rifle at my field, so it would need to be 400+ FPS, and accurate to at least 150 feet. But man would everyone crap their pants hen I pull that out of the car. Unfortunately, from what I understand KTW is a rather proprietary company.

    Ya, that's the problem. PROPRIETARY to the max. I checked out some videos on it awhile back and it didn't seem upgradeable, but at least it had some nice externals.

    You could just roll up with a couple of these though....

    It's going to be hard to help you with that.. Do you have any possible ideas for it?

    if you already have the toy rifle, start with the barrel. you need to either find a suitable replacement for it, possible a sniper barrel maybe an L96, or hollow out that one and install an inner barrel. The next step would be the hardest. you need to find a way to add a hopup unit to the gun and get the hammer mechanism to act as the "bolt" precocking mechanism. that would be done with springs and gears with the trigger being the gear lock until you pull it.

    that's what i'm going to get a springer gun for, to use it's firing system, and hopefully make it compatible, with the dimensions of the musket. also, i haven't gotten my hands on one yet.

    personally, i would try to adjust for the pull-range of the built-in firing hammers.
