Building a race pistol

Hello everyone,
I want to build a pistol off of a TM Hi Capa.

Basically, these are the three things I want in it:
  • Accuracy
  • Power
  • Reliability

The only things I know how to do on a GBB pistol are installing a tightbore and installing an upgraded piston head.

I don't know anything which I am putting in to it yet. I want it to be 7" with a C-More on it.

Please help me come up with a parts list, but bare in mind that the only retailer I am going to order from is RedWolf, unless I really need something that they don't stock.

Thanks for linking me to that thread, however I've already read all of that.

What I'm looking for is a list of parts that have worked well for somebody else, such as a certain brand slide.

Easily, once you get age verified. No joke, all the models are in the classifieds new, and there are a shit load in the used section, including completed race guns.

Bullcrap, just like a pusher you know he'll be back for his weekly fix of ridiculously awesome parts. You selling HiCapas is ensnarement at it's best lol.

But in all seriousness mr. Stone78, take Illusion up on his offer. Not only a great guy, but he is pretty much the HiCapa reference in Canada and a known figure abroad, I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have near by when doing a race build. Just pace yourself, with all the amazing HiCapa related stuff he has to offer it can get both really great and really expensive at the same time.

I've read almost every single thread on ASC and Arnies regarding race pistols, and I've done a lot of research. What I really need now is a list of good parts so that I can build a pistol that's accurate, reliable and below 395 FPS.

Thank you for the replies so far, but is anyone able to help me come up with a list?

You need to make some parts choices for yourself...and GBB's are more than finiky, so there's often no "magic parts list" to just drop in and say Tah-Da! Here it works.

Power
- tightbore
- longer inner
- high flow valve on mags
- tight air seal....good mag top seal -> nozzle seal...nozzle tip->hopup...etc...
- float valve weight and spring tension

Accuracy
- gas pressure consistency
- hopup
- inner barrel
- sear/hammer/trigger set

Performance
- weight of recoiling parts
- BBU piston head airseal
- recoil spring tension
- etc...

Reliability
- fit/strength of parts (knockers/disconnects/etc..)

Why not just build one from scratch?...

If you are going to go all out and replace pretty much everything, you might as well spend that little more (or rather, little less since you don't spend on the base pistol) and get upgraded parts for even the things that you don't replace.
