AirSplat Tech Tips - MB02/MB03 Airsoft Cylinder Kit Installation
WELL MB03 is a bolt action, single fire sniper rifle. The top rail on the gun allows for mounting of the 3-9x40 scope included with the package. The front rail allows for installation of the bipod which can be purchased separately. This is a compact sniper rifle ideal for a scout sniper. It allows for long range shooting, while keeping the gun compact enough for constant movement, even through urban environments.
Well MB-03C review by XavierMace
The Well MB-03 is available from Airsplat.com
for the low price of $99.99. This is technically the "C" variant
which denotes it includes a basic scope.
It also includes the standard accessories, a small bag of BB's, a
speed loader, one magazine, and a basic sling. The gun does come
disassembed due to it's length, but the assembly is very basic and only
requires a metric allen wrench.
Product Description/First Impressions:
first thought upon opening the package is that the gun looks just like
every other VSR-10 clone I have seen. This is not necessarily a
bad thing, if the system works, why change it? The packaging is
pretty standard for Well's products, featuring a black box with
Styrofoam tray to hold everything. As stated above, this
particular version is a complete package which include a
scope, so it is ready for use out of the box. The included speed
loader is always a welcome inclusion.
the gun is your average VSR-10 clone. In fact, I was hard pressed
to tell the difference between the Well MB-03 and my JG BAR-10. I
would even go so far as to say I suspect the externals for the two guns
are made in the same factory or at least using the same molds.
The plastic stock feels a bit cheap, but no more so than the
BAR-10 or any other low cost Chinese airsoft gun. While the
texture leaves a lot to be desired, there's no creaks or wobbles of any
The barrel is also very light weight but once again does
not give any indication of durability issues. The gun comes with
a plastic orange tip as required by law. However unlike most guns
without flash hiders, the orange tip is simply a orange plastic version
of the standard VSR-10 muzzle cap that is simply threaded on.
Apply a little bit of torque to break loose the glue/locktite and
it just unscrews like flash hider.
One thing I think is greatly
improved on the Well vs the JG is the length of the hopup adjustment
arm. The Well's arm is longer which makes the hopup far easier to
adjust. The scope rail is full length and will take any normal
Picatinny scope mounts. I did not have any issues using QD mounts
on mine which are sometimes an issue on a rifle like this due to the
thickness of the mount.
spring guns are pretty simple compared to your average AEG or Gas Gun. Unfortunately the rear screw mounting the trigger assembly to the
receiver apparently was stripped when the gun was assembly preventing
me from completely disassembling the gun. Therefore, the best I
can do is external pictures of the internals.
receiver is a bit lighter colored than the other VSR-10 clones I've
handled but the trigger assembly is visually identical to the trigger
assembly on the JG BAR-10. Beyond that there's not much to see on
the trigger assembly.
only difference I was able to see between the MB-03's internals and the
JG BAR-10's internals is the hopup and the cylinder. Without
being able to completely disassemble the MB-03, I can't say just how
different they are but there's a slit/hole on the bottom of the MB-03's
cylinder that isn't present on the BAR-10's.
stated previously, the hopup is slightly different on the MB-03 than on
the BAR-10. The adjustment arm is a little bit longer on the
MB-03 and it adjusts much smoother than on the BAR-10. Based on
the performance I'll discuss below, it seems to be much more consistent
than the BAR-10's as well.
that, visually, the chambers seem to be identical in design. My
only assumption can be minute manufacturing differences between the two.
the gun is a spring powered, bolt action rifle, the power source for
cycling the gun is your arm. The bolt pull is a little bit
stiffer than a JG BAR-10 due to the stronger spring, but I had no
difficulty pulling the bolt back from a variety of shooting positions.
The bolt action itself is very smooth free from any snags or
rough spots. The gun uses standard Tokyo Marui compatible VSR-10
where the gun really surprised me. Up until now, it seemed like
your run of the mill VSR-10 clone. Because I was comparing it to
the JG BAR-10 which has a much lower velocity, I was testing with
Airsoft Elite .23g BB's rather than my normal .25's. With
said BB's the gun chrono'd at 409fps, 10 shot average. There was
only a 3fps variation from the highest reading to the lowest reading.
Nothing to set it apart from other clones, but nothing to rule it
out of the competition. That all changes right here.
have never been more shocked with a guns stock performance than this
gun. As mentioned before, I was directly comparing this to a JG
BAR-10 as they are direct competitors. I was using the same BB's,
from the same bag, with the same speed loader, and the same mags.
The guns were literally sitting next to each other and I was
alternating shooting them. Because the Well does have a
significant velocity advantage (~100fps), I did not want to push the
range too far to give the Well an advantage. At 100', the Well
MB-03 was achieving 2" tighter groupings than the BAR-10.
my amazement, at 100', the Well MB-03 was getting sub 1" groupings.
The two "fliers" were my fault beyond all shadow of a doubt due
to a less than ideal shooting position. I ran the test 3 times
just to be sure. That kind of groupings with a sub-$100 gun is
nothing short of astounding in my mind. In all aspects, this gun
is simply more consistent and precise than the BAR-10 and other clones.
the gun is a VSR-10 clone, there are numerous accessories out there for
the gun. If you are on a budget, the only thing I would recommend
is a scope with a little better eye relief, a couple of spare
magazines, and some good BB's. I personally mounted a Leapers 3-9X50 Mil Dot
scope on mine. The Leapers scope looks great and doesn't break
the bank. If you prefer a gun with a little more heft to it, you
can check out some of the guides on filling the stock to improve the
weight and balance or get an aftermarket stock such as those made by
Once again, as the gun is a VSR-10
clone, it will take any of the countless VSR-10 parts on the market. Personally I feel it it's not broke, don't fix it. With
that in mind, the gun shot so exceptionally well for a stock gun, I
would hesitate starting to swap parts unless absolutely necessary.
Externally, a PDI outer barrel and a Fortress stock gives it the
looks to go with the performance you get.
gun performed flawlessly on the field, and several people expressed
surprise at the fact the gun was completely stock. The hopup is
very consistent and doesn't seem to have any issues staying where you
set it. Despite it's light weight, it doesn't seem to have any
problems surviving being banged around
started this review with pretty low expectations. I've had mixed
experiences with Well's guns and there's an abundance of existing VSR
clones with established reputations. That's not to say I thought
it would be a bad gun, I just didn't expect anything to stand out about
the gun. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised with
this gun. It is not often I can say a gun completely exceeded all
of my expectations, but this one certainly did. Regardless if
this is your first airsoft sniper rifle or you are just looking for
your next project gun, I would strongly recommend starting here.
Many thanks to Airsplat for generously providing this gun for review.
