HFC VSR-10 Airsoft Sniper Spring Rifle Manual
This HFC VSR-10 Airsoft Sniper Spring Rifle is a single shot bolt action rifle. It may seem like every other bolt action rifle out there, but there is one thing that sets this rifle apart from the rest. It can be converted to a bolt action gas rifle, which boasts an amazing increase to 430 FPS! All it takes is replacing the barreled action and you're set!
The VSR10 also has two variations – the ‘real shock’ and ‘pro sniper version’. The real shock has a fake wood stock and the pro sniper has a matt black stock. The real shock also has a slightly different piston, which creates a louder noise and supposed recoil effect.
Then VSR series are a great start for a sniper on a budget. This rifle is probably your best bet for sniping at 1J. The basic upgrades are easily available and simple to fit (with a tiny mod). Its light weight means it is great for younger players or the lighter adult! Upgraded properly, it is also an awesomely outperforming sniper rifle.
The upgrade potential for either gun is very good. There are many parts available cheaply and in good supply. New products are being released regularly so there are many options. If you want to stay at 1J or upgrade to 2.31J, all the parts are available and in most places; easily fitted. Reports are good from people at higher power ratings and the gun seems to perform very well, easily rivalling the APS series.
General Info and Mod advice:
The VSR-10 stock on average tends to fire about 270fps / 0.2g bb, and the G-Spec about 290 / 0.2g bb. Although these will vary from gun to gun people!
0.2g bbs can be used with the gun from stock, but 0.23g or 0.25g for it will improve your accuracy. Anything above 0.25g for sniping at a stock power level is not really worth it. If you upgrade to 328, 0.28g/0.29g may be worth considering.
‘Suckback’ is not an issue with VSR barrels ranging from 303mm to the 555mm bull outer barrel suited inner barrels.
Basically, its not "sucked back" - the problem is that the internal volume of the barrel is greater than the useable volume of the cylinder, and thus you lose velocity. There are some comments in one of the threads to explain it more precisely
