    I recently bought a JG M16 Enhanced. So far, I put in a 6.01 tbb and thats about it. Im a little new into getting into the gearbox and all, so what would you guys reccomend doing for my DMR project? Im also looking for an RIS that would fit my aeg. I tried some RIS's from other airsofters at my local field, but none of them did. If anybody could reccomend an RIS too, that would help.

    First, ditch the 6.01 and get a 6.03.
    Secondly, I would love to help but you need to tell us your budget and goals

    @GreenListerine I'd say my budget is $130 exact.

    FPS is fine for now, range could be a little better though.

    New bucking if I get one in the next few days I'll send you a PM, like above said 6.03 barrel would do well, basic DIY mods regrease reshim, etc.

    If the fps is fine, all you need to do is worry about basic DIY mods in the gearbox and hop up unit.
    -prommy 6.03, r-hop, m-nub and systema bucking will be great
    -madbull 6.03, flat hop, scs nub, madbull blue or G&G green buckings is a good substitute

    Modding or upgrading?
    They are two different things if you want to get specific.

    Shimming, use the shimming guide :p

    Use ER-hop, not R-hop, this is a DMR.

    It's not imperative that you get a 6.03mm barrel. You've only got $130, spend the money elsewhere for now. It's about barrel quality, not bore.

    As for more range, an r-hop or ER hop is a great investment, especially an ER-hop for a DMR.

    Consider getting a different battery, a large 7.4v would be a good power source for this project. If you're good with a soldering iron, deans on the battery and gun would also be good to go. As others have said, Shimming and AoE are some of the most important things you can do to a gun. And in DMRs, it is great to have very good compression. While you have the gearbox open, you should check that out as well. You'll probably need a new air nozzle, JG's don't have o-rings in them.

    @Star_folder Im currently running a 9.6 1600mAh. Starting on my first shim job and I might buy a one piece hop up. What air nozzle do you reccomend? Thanks by the way.

    Lonex makes some good nozzles.

    As for hop up chambers, I'm fairly sure that you have a two piece ho up chamber. If that's the case, I actually suggest against getting the 1 piece chamber unless you get a metal body kit for the gun. Fitting a 1 piece chamber into a gun that uses the tabs closing system is very, very difficult, and runs a high risk of breaking your cylinder head or air nozzle.

    Yeah, a 7.4v would be good for you. That battery is fairly small and might not last you very long out on the field.
