Well, it's almost done.. (so much for my budget i had more working than i expected =) )
I have the gun, scope and have purchased the following upgrades:
PSS2 170 and 190 spring (190 for playing outside events) a pdi hopup guarder steel bolt pdi 9mm spring guide pdi vacuum piston pss2 cylinder head madbull black python tight bore barrel. (first factory zero trigger still has to come in stock)
I'm looking if anyone can give me some help, or possibly even a walkthrough with pictures. I'm having problems with a few things. mainly. with the new spring and cylinder head in place, my bolt is catching on part of my old trigger and feels like it wont pull back at all but eventually goes with a little force....also, I do not know how to take out the barrel spacers from the old barrel to install with the new one.
if anyone can give me a hand it would be much appreciated.

Aside from a few subtle things, it's basically the same as an M24. Here's a guide I wrote for disassembling an M24, just follow it in reverse order. If you can get it from that, I'll make an APS 2 guide when I get some time to break mine down.
I own an APS2 SV and its breakdown is easy and is almost identical to the rest.
First thing you do is flip your rifle over so that your trigger gaurd is facing up.
You now have 2 screw holes that are Allen wrenches, find one that fits and remove the 2 screws from place.
Now you will have your reciever apart from your stock. Your trigger will be attached to your reciever.
Now unscrew your rifles barrel. This will expose your cylinder/cylinder-head and seperate it from your hop-up/innner barrel.
Now to remove your hop-up/inner-barrel/spaces simply push on the end of your inner barrel and slide it out. The end. The end.
To remove your trigger from rest of the rifle just unscrew it and pull it directly upwards. After that you sear will be sitting there just pull/wiggle it.
Look down your rifle as if you were looking down your Optics. Look at the back of your bolt handle. This is another Allen Wrench job. Same size as your stock's screws. Remove this.
Bull back on the bolt. Theres two parts. Bolt handle and just a end cap which is part of the bolt.
BECAREFUL! On "front" of your bolt handle are 3 or 4 small bearings on springs. This is for locking it when rotating your bolt. Dont lose those. They help a lot.
Now that your trigger and its sears/stoppers are out of the cylinder and your bolt handle is off the cylinder everything should be apart. Just slide your cylinder out from the rest of the rifle.
To open your cylinder grab yourself a pair of pliers, apply just enough pressure to unscrew your cylinder head. BE CAREFUL AGAIN! This is holding a spring, spring guide and a piston... it can shoot out and get grease on things.
If you still dont get this I can provide pictures and a actually well written takedown of the rifle.

ok... I understand the breakdown of my rifle.... I've done it many times... my question, if any of you have actually read it, is mainly how do i get my barrel spacers off of my barrel and into the new tight bore? That and does anyone know why my bolt is catching on part of the trigger assembly?
