Super9 Upgrade

k, instead of buying a new sniper, is it possible to upgrade my current Super 9 Pro V2 from 350FPS to 600FPS?

I got a couple things to say about this...

1) SEARCH! This has been covered before. Use the almighty flashing search button and it will be your best friend.

2) 600fps is past the AO legal limits for a sniper rifle.

3)If you like your guns to explode and injure you within 3 shots, sure take it to 600fps. Its been said before, "Upgrading a Super 9 is like sprinkling glitter on poop."

4) Just to be nice here is a link. http://www.airsoftohio.com/showthrea...=super+upgrade

Yes it is possible. But in order to do it so that the rifle was reliable enough to use, you would have to machine metal replacement parts - replacement bolt, piston, and trigger assembly, nozzle, etc. using metal that can stand up to the job. The cost of machining these parts would be such that buying something else would be much cheaper.

If you want an upgrdeable sniper rifle, the SUper 9 is not the rifle for you. If you want an inexpensive spring rifle to compete with other inexpensive spring rifles, the Super 9 performs as well or better than most of them.

As an inexpensive spring rifle, the cost of upgrading the gun so that it would perform reliably and safely is such that buying something else would be easier and cheaper.
