Re: Not recomended. Extreme balance in blow back system. Any Length
March 23 2012, 1:10 PM
Yea I understand that. Mods would have to be made to the air system in the front and adjustment of power. But I probably won't do it. The most I can shorten is 3-4 inches because of the piston sticking out the front. Not worth it.
Best solution is to change out your bottle in the stock. It now

has a 500 cc bottle...simply buy a 400 cc bottle and you will reduce 3 to 4 inches and reduce the weight about 3/4 of a lb. I did this to mine and yes the shot-count went from 60 to about 45 but that for me and hunting is way more than I need. You how have a short gun and weighs about 6.5 lbs. Win/Win
It's gas operated, anyway shortening will increase cycling energy

which means it'll work 'better' and you'll be able to cycle heavier pellets.
It's not a blowback semi-auto, so more energy won't open the bolt prematurely.
The operation only happens after the pellet leaves the barrel.
But it will increase the speed of moving parts so there's a chance parts could
wear out quicker, but hopefully the manufacturer has allowed a decent design margin.
The FX Micro-burst prototype is short barreled.

Hmmmmmmmmm FX Micro-burst prototype ....do you have any info on this
March 23 2012, 8:06 PM
Please forward to : email@example.com
I own a fine Revo....Should not mess with length of barrel...to many variables...there are those that have tried & they knew what they were doing but had cycle issues....Very balances a factory for Blow Back operation...any adj can be highly critical in blow back guns. Always remember when a shorter barrel is applied you May get loss of FPE...Mine @33FPE is great! Oh and Do-Not lube pellets as the lube can get into the blow back under air tub.
Please send me info on Micro Burst.
