I understand all that and I know the difficulty with using a bolt action sniper rifle. I personally just enjoy using bolt action rifle because it's a long time working progress that I can have fun with. Plus I greatly enjoy the simplicity of them and how I can silently take people out even if they have a much more useful gun than mine. Sniping is a challenge and it's one that I like to overcome.
That being said I appreciate you trying to help but it's information that has been stated many times and I know all to well.
I agree the thing already has plenty of power. My gun chronoed yesterday at 438fps with .28 bbs and that was with literally no modifications to the gun other than fixing some mechanical issues. The UTG I have also came stock with a 6.02 tightbore barrel so I don't really have a need to change that though increasing the barrel length may be useful. As far as I have seen my hop up will also suffice for now. I want the durability upgrades because I would be greatly saddened if something died in the middle of one of my games kind of like it did yesterday. Fortunantly there was an airsoft tech at the field who helped me fix my problem.
Anyways we have gone a bit off topic. Do you know of any good durability upgrades I could buy for the UTG? I am already planning on buying a real steel bolt because mine was chewed up from a loose part inside it.
;D that particular comment wasn't for you, it was for a few other "special" members we have here that don't understand the differences. Not naming names, but you know you are.
The UTG may come with a "6.02" tightbore from the factory, but it's not just the bore, it's also the consistency of the bore. And flat out clone companies do not have that quality and consistency.
It's easy to drill any size hole, but the hard part is drilling that hole straight and consistent. Something clone companies do not do well at all.
The first durability upgrade would be trigger and bolt sears. But you might as well just buy the parts, and wait until the original ones break to actually install them.
The other upgrades would be a quality metal spring guide, piston, cylinder, cylinder head.
It's still highly recommended that you invest in a quality tightbore. However a longer barrel will not increase your accuracy, past 509mm~ there is virtually no change in accuracy from a 509mm to a 650mm barrel.
