Today's video is one that I shot right around the same time as the prior videos you've seen here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, as part of the WE M14 GBB Airsoft Rifle Review I'm in the process of at the moment.
In case you need a refresher, the first chrono test that I did with a .28g BB and at completely stock level can be seen here: WE M14 Chrono Test w/.28g BB - Bucking NOT Sealed
For the following video, all I did was take the rifle apart, all the way down to the inner barrel and hop-up bucking, and wrap the end of the rubber bucking a few times with Teflon Tape. Then I put it all back together and chrono'd the gun. Here are the results of that procedure.
I've gone ahead, like a charitable fellow, and included a recap of not only the most recent video, but the original video with the WE M14 hop-up bucking unsealed as well, for comparison purposes. You are super welcome.
So you can see a few things with this data set. One, perhaps the most obvious, is the increase in the average velocity by 24.05 FPS. Not too shabby. However, there are a few individuals out there in the Airsoft community whom I have learned many things from, and they would say that there is much to be improved here. Whether or not I currently have the skill set to do so remains to be seen, but I DO love a good challenge. So we're going to see what we can do. My first order of business has been to try a different hop-up bucking, so I've got a few headed my direction as we speak. There are a number of other items I plan on looking into as well and will provide more intel on them in due time.
