Automag spring mod

modspring
Has anybody tried this on their VM? Doesn't really look like a lot off effort

Just found this website, and i am still in awe of how many mods you can do.

I run an automag spring in my VMX.

note - if you want to build a quiet(er) VM then you want to do this mod. IMO

and be ready to get a set of automag springs for tuning. they come in different lengths and tensions.

I used to run my VM with a Pro-Shot kit (which is the Automag Spring mod with a threaded tension adjuster in the back plug. I would recommend it over the stock spring setup. My impressions:

1) The Automag spring will be too loose if you just take away the plastic bumper, causing the spring to rattle around in the lower reciever. VERY annoying. You could probably modify the plastic bumper to hold the spring though.

2) The sound signature of the gun becomes "snappier" somehow.

3) I can reach higher velocities with the Automag Spring. I had trouble getting above 260 fps with the stock spring (although I suspect a lower friction upper bolt might help with that as well).

4) The gun will cycle faster with the Automag spring.

About the Pro-Shot kit specifically: The Pro-Shot tension adjuster in the back plug can break after extended use with the heavy stock hammer. Mine has gotten very hard to adjust, because the threads keep taking a beating. I think it was meant to be used with a lightened hammer.
