I've got two Unity System (Red) Scouts, which have been mildly modded; the holes taped up, the AR's removed and a suitable sized hole dremeled into the barrel tube. The spring has a wedge of cardboard slightly pre-compressing it, and they fire better than they did stock. At least another 3-5ft from rough memory. Small, but an improvement never-the-less
But I grabbed a two-pack of the N-Strike 2 pack Scouts, and after having a play with them I pondered if they were any different in terms of range/power to my Red modded ones.
Interestingly, they fire almost exactly the same, in a couple of cases another foot or two further, than my modded Red ones.
I haven't taken them apart yet to see if it's just a case of a slightly more powerful spring, or if infact the way I've modded my Red ones simply aren't efficient enough (considering they don't have a more powerful spring and small plunger tube, I haven't brass barreled them yet and I'm yet to experiment with an Element spring like LordDraconical did... only just got some extra Elements to do so), but considering from strong memory that they do fire better than they did when they were stock... makes me wonder.
So! Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? :S
