Hi, I currently own a KWA SR-12. But lately I have noticed that its not as bad a** as I want it to be. I have a Li-Po in it,  a dialed down spring, and a canted sight. But now i want to create a DMR out of it. I know i need to extend the barrel, I plan on expanding it through a mock [barrel extension] I own ( the inner barrel can be any size between 550-610mm). I want a more powerful spring, and I want to possibly put a better hop-up in it. Anything else you guys can imagine to make it the most accurate, powerful, most badass gun ever is also appreciated. I was also given a tip from a friend that a guy named GCW360 provides great advice, so GCW360, if you could help I would owe you so much. Thanks so much you guys. If the project is a success I will post pictures for all to see!

First: m150 spring, flat hop or r hop, grease, shim, AoE, mad bull inner barrel 6.03mm, sorbopad, ported piston head.

These are just some simple tune ups you can do on your own.

I will provide links for all of the above listed items

No prob bro, this only a suggestion of what you could do, but seriously get the kwa barrel for your gun.

Thank you airsoftmathias.
I am one of many on this forum who have useful things to say and knowledge to pass along.
GCW360, Niko_Gpsy, the rest of KWA staff, and many forum patrons have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Each one, Teach one.

We are all still learning and growing.
The more you learn, the more you realize there is so much more that can be accomplished with airsoft guns than ever before. We are only at the beginning of airsoft potential performance. Airsoft has advanced light years since I started working on my own airsoft guns in 2009. Keeping up to date as well as pursuing my own ideas has been endless fun.

I only encourage everyone to push their skills as far as they can go towards getting the most performance out of their airsoft guns. The results are very rewarding. Just do so one step at a time and build towards your performance goals, don't chase them.

Thanks for the "shout out" and sorry I'm playing catch-up with the thread.  I'll give the remainder a read and post back.  My first impression is as follows"
  • Let's figure out the FPS you want so we can get the build right
  • Anything above an m130 spring will require re-shimming the gun
  • Anything over about 450 w/ .2's will require a stiffer nub and or bucking or both
  • The limit of the barrel length that you can use is 550mm and at this length a non-ported "0" type cylinder is needed to optimize FPS
  • Buy the best heavy ammo you can afford
  • A really good TBB is recommended.  I like the KM Head 6.02 509MM
  • I'm all about trigger response so I would consider dropping in a FET and adding a high torque motor also
  • BLATEY has some fine suggestions and Van is the man with the DMR
Hope this helps and good luck!
