Airsoft Sniper Rifle Upgrade Kit for APS Type96 Shadow Op MB01 MB05 Snowwolf M99 M24 & Comp. Sniper Rifles
by Eric S. Date Added: September 29, 2011
I bought This upgrade Kit For my UTG L96 Shadow ops sniper. As a cheap simple upgrade it doesn't get any better, it raised my fps to 463 with .3g bbs and allowed me to out range everybody on the field. the only issue I ran into with this kit is the piston and the piston head. If you look at the picture you can see that the catch on the rear of the piston is not a a 90 degree angle, it's more like 45 degrees. So after about 500-600 cycles (shots) the steel trigger catch actually rounded off the aluminum piston and it no longer can be shot because the piston won't hold it's correct position when the bolt is puled back. The only other issue is the piston head. because the rubber on the head is not the same bore as the cylinder not all of the spring's power is utilized.

Raised fps from 500 to 535 (.2g bbs)
Improved range

45 degree angle on piston instead of 90
Lack of compression from piston head
