hey everyone,
i have been watching the you tube vids on practical shooting and notice the rate of fire on some pistols seem higher than others. with some research on race guns and some good luck i found this: ... wback.html

i know it is the evil airsoft :lol: but i though it should work on most gas blow back pistols. i know i am going to try it with my kwa atp once it gets here on the 25 th.

pro- higher rate of fire, (some talk of better gas millage too)
con- slide lock may or may not function (depends how much you short stroke it) but i have heard of some people cutting a new slide lock cut out in their slide to compensate for that too.

ideas? suggestions? flames?
any one try this yet?

ps- i did the post because i don't remember any one here talking about this before. and thought maybe it might just work with B.B. guns too.

my other coil is a sub ohm

I used to do airsoft practical shooting, and never noticed an advantage to short stroking, the gun will cycle faster than you can pull the trigger unless your slide is way too heavy and your recoil spring is way too light, and the lack of slide stop to me was a way bigger disadvantage than any percieved advantage from shortstroking
another thing to consider is that if you shortstroke it, the piston head never leaves the nozzle so it cant vent the gas thats been expended, it has to bleed out back through the mags gas chute, or around the piston head oring, and depending on the quality of the airseal it could momentarily hang back as it bleeds pressure before returning to battery, making it SLOWER

I like guns.
All kinds of guns; black, red, brown, even polish(ed)
