alright so im about to pull the trigger and buy this gun so i would like to know how far u can shoot a man sized target say at least 6 out of 10 shots.and also if u have a tbb or any accuracy changing mods please say so. ive heard people say they can easily hit a man sized target from 165 ft seems far fetched for a gun this size

Even if you have tight bore barrel... you wont get much range on this gun. Remember its only 160mm long. With my stock inner barrel, I was getting 100-125 feet accurate range. Maybe if it was TB you'll probably get 150 feet. Even though my mp7 only shoots this far, I still love it compare to my other AEG sub machine guns.

Actually lol I'm pretty sure my eyes and my measuring tape are correct sitting out at 165 feet hitting man sized targets! Haha its a stock MP7 I run and I use about 11 seconds of fill with propane shooting .25g bbs from madbull and yes it really is VERY accurate.  Not sure why some people are so wrecked up by the fact it has such a short barrel... Most of the consistency and accuracy of an airsoft gun is the hop up system itself.  TRUST ME, it'll be smashin noobcakes at 165 feet haha  :notworthy:

heres a link to the Airsoftology archives where that episode is listed first: http://www.airsoftology.com/2009/10/
and im surprised you guys had trouble finding it on itunes it should be there... search airsoftology in itunes and it should show the podcast and its episodes.
anyways I have been a huge fan since they started and I recommend you listen to other episodes as well  :thumbsup:

I think, apart from the adjustment of the hop up and the quality of the BBs, another key factor for the precision is the propellant gas and maintenance of the gun:

The hop up does not work properly if the rubber is covered with oil due to the gas or too much maintenance. The commercial Airsoft gases have a lot of silicone oil added, and with none of theme I can achieve the precision you have described. An experienced player gave me the tip to clean the hop up regularly with a cotton swap (Q-tip) and some alcohol, which improved the precision of my MP7 significantly. --- However, if you use conventional propane gas with maybe no additional or much less silicone oil, it seems obvious to me that you get much better results.


Best regards

Yikes!  There are some misconceptions regarding green gas out there.  The issues with hop-up in general occur with propane when silicone is added to it because you can not control the amount of silicon added to the mixture. And regarding the safety of the container, there are many on this forum and beyond with extensive experience with  green gas whom have not ever had an issue.  All KWA GBB guns are optimized for green gas and using any other gas will void the warranty. :gun:

i have used propane in my we scar for over 20000 rounds and i never even clean it just relube when it needs itthe o rings are in great shape never had any problems with it. and thats a crappy we tech if propane was bad for it it would of showed by now. u could completly rebuild gun with the money u save buying propane i know ive saved well over 100$ using propane. especially if u have to pay shipping every time. and yeah negligence is the main cause of explosions but stuff happens say u have a few bottles of green gas in a bag in ur vehicle one rolls out without u knowing on a hot day. if i had to use green gas i wouldnt own a gbb.
