TSD L96 muzzle tip removal

Hi,

Can someone tell me how to remove the orange tip of my TSD L96? Is it screwed, glued, or snapped?

Since my gun doesn’t shoot straight, I suspect that the orange plastic tip acts as a second up-hop because it’s a little bit off centre from the inner bore. The only way to compensate for bb’s going to much left is to lean the rifle ( I use .25 bb's). I would like to take apart the inner bore form the outer barrel and try to realign them.

Thanks in advance.

If its a plastic peice that goes 'over' the outer barrel then their usually glued on. Just grab a flat screwdriver and pry that sucker off.

No, the tip doesn’t go over the barrel. It’s flush with it, like if it was screwed.

Since the tip could hold the inner bore, I don’t want to scrap it.

It shoule be screwd inside the outerbarrel...

Take your time and unscrew it, the "normal" ways (not CCW)

It's screwed inside, but partially glued.

You need to use quite a lot of force, I've taken mine out, and it was somewhat hard

if you completely remove it, yes it will affect the innerbarrel.

If you remove it to paint it black and replace it, no.

You can also buy any muzzle made for Maruzen Type 96. It will fit no problem.

You can get one with the muzzle brake, or simply with 14mm treads (neg. or pos.) and use a silencer or any other flash hider.

Take a heatgun and heat the end of your outer barrel (without anything inside, ofcourse)

The glue will soften (if not melt) and it will be easier to remove.

Even after having realigned the muzzle tip with the inner bore, the gun doesn’t shoot straight at 100 feet (I use .25 g bb’s; should I try 0.3g bb’s?). I have notice that the inner bore is little bit arched because when I let it roll on a flat surface there’s a small "wave". Does it affect the trajectory? Should I try to straighten up the bore?

Also, it seems that the up-hop has no "zero" position. The bb’s tend to fly toward the sky even with lowest adjustment possible. As soon has I try to turn the screw, it becomes worst! I’ll try to clean thoroughly the up-hop.

Please, I will appreciate advice on how to improve the efficiency of my TSD L96 without replacing all the original parts!!

1- your should use some .30g minimum.
2- yes, a bent barrel will screw your aiming, get a new one, the chances that you will ge this one strait are worst than winning at loto.
3- that is probably because of the combinaison of bent barrel/light bbs

not ccw so you don't unscrew it like you would a bottle/jar but the opposite?
i've tried many times either way and still no dice.

I own one of these and just got it down.

the orange flash hider is horrid. i actually took a hack saw and cut around the edges where it sits flush with the outer barrel. i hacked around in a circle until it loosenned the glue. there is actually an orange cap which is the flash hider part glued over an orange threaded cylinder. once the cap fell of the orange cylinder was exposed and i simply used pliers to turn it (completely demolishing the threads, but im pretty sure they glued the threads in so it had to be done ) after that its not reusable but who cares, it was worth it to solve this next issue...

I have found that the bucking ( i think thats what its called. The rubber small tube that helps push down the hop. I think ive heard it called nubbin) is too big... or the hop up is being pushed down to much by shotty craftsmanship... which ever...

I removed the bucking, and instead cut strips of thin rubber (from an old hop up unit). I placed the small square pieces over the hopup where the bucking usually goes. two layers worked perfectly for me, and it shoots straight.

The adjustment mech for this hop up is useless!
