Hey guys, as you may know, I recently bought an Edgi 6.01mm 363mm barrel and installed it in my SRC G36K Gen 2.http://www.edgicustom-usa.com/#aeg_barrels
Total price was $65 shipped via Fedex. ($55 for the barrel $10 shipping)
I received the barrel, I was having accuracy issue and I thought it was
the barrel. The performance was better than the stock barrel, but not
as much as I expected. After trying several different things (using the
stock bucking, different nubs, etc) I realized what is wrong. I'll get
back to that though
I could not find any reason for my accuracy being bad, I contacted
Edgi. Ben was very very helpful, friendly, and patient and did his best
to walk me through. Because I could not find anything wrong, he sent me
a free (FREE!) Shredder's Concave Spacer and 100 AE .25s to test out.
(we were thinking the TSD .25s might be the issue) I realized the
problem was not the bucking, barrel, bbs or nub, but rather the hop up
system. While fiddling around with it, I noticed that at certain hop up
settings, the hop up arm would lean, which would cause the nub to be
pressed at an angle, thus causing a side spin. THIS was the reason for
my poor performance. I'm not sure if this is a general problem for G36
hop up units, or if I got a lemon, but that's how it is..... (I don't
believe my E1 did this, but the accuracy was pretty bad on it, so I
probably didn't notice
Sadly, I did not figure this out
until after Ben had already sent me the SCS and bbs. I feel a little
bad for for "taking" money from the company, especially during these
hard times. Thank you very much and I apologize.
That is how
amazing their customer service is. This was done all through email.
God bless Edgicustoms and the amazing
people that work there. (Is Ben the only one working there?)
Now, for the performance.
the Edgi barrel, stock SRC bucking, SCS, TSD .25s, and the hop up
adjusted to where the bbs don't have a side spin, I can hit a tree
around 4 inches wide from about 120 feet almost every round. (I'm
guessing like 4 out of 6 shots) The barrel is of amazing quality and
definitely gave me much better accuracy and even bumped up my fps by
maybe 15. (I don't have .2s or a Chrono, so I can't do the poorman's
test) The SCS also helped with the consistency quite a bit and is
definitely worth the price tag. ($7 bucks shipped I believe) (and yes I
know, it was free.....
) It also might have boosted my FPS slightly. (the bbs looked like they were flying a little faster)
very very pleased with my purchase. Edgi Customs make great products
and their CS is phenomenal. I highly recommend their products to
And if anyone is wondering, TSDs perform roughly the same as the AEs Ben sent me.
Thank you Ben and Edgi!
