This is PolarStar Thread

So I know there are at least a few guys on here with P* FEs in their guns, and probably a bunch more once the V3 FEs come out.

I took the G&P M16 that I won at Rhino 2 and dropped an FE in. The install was simple as shit and I only had one problem. I had to put a piece of shrink wrap on the selector plate so that it would engage auto. The switch from the stock blue nozzle to the gold one only took a few mins to do too.



I took her outside for a test, lowered the settings as low as they would go with the FCU and got 6.5 RPS, I then brought them up as high as they would go and still have the mag feed and the chrono would not read it. Lowered it down a bit and clocked it shooting 38.9 RPS. Through all the readings I was getting a consistent ~365 FPS (0.25g) @110 Psi w/ gold nozzel



Its a freaking laser!


This thing is LOUD!! and I love it! lol
I want to get a firepig on it and get it even louder.

I tried screwing on a 100mm foam filled suppressor I had lying around and it actually made a BIG difference in the sound. This is the only rifle I have that a suppressor actually works on. I tried to capture the difference in sound with my camera but it just was not doing it close up, I'll have to wait until I can get somebody to stand downrange to record it :P
I also want to see if a longer suppressor will work better.

The hopup unit/rubber that came with the rifle suck, so I have a new unit, rubber, and TB coming in, I can't wait to test it with those parts.

I have the FE for the Echo1 M240 coming in the mail so hopefully I can get that installed and tested within the next 2 weeks.

Polar Star - GAS is back on the menu! Awesome isn't it? I've got mine in my older MP5SD6. Need to find a better SD silencer than the TM one.

How much do they run? I'm not at all familiar with HPA tanks as I never did the paintball thing, are they a pain to get/use/fill?

im not sure how a set up would work for airsoft, but i know that fills are VERY easy. Depending on your local paintball fields, airfills may be free.

Hey Wayne,

What mods did you have to do to fit it into the SD?

The air rig is shit simple. The local PB field near me does fills of any size tank for $8

The V2 drop in was recently MAPd to $450, nozzles are $18. Air rigs will vary in price depending on what you get.

I found out recently that the foam filled suppressors actually work VERY well with these drop ins.

Here is mine with a 110mm foam insert tube. In the future I want to see how a longer tube and high density foam will effect it.

Sorry for the horrid quality, I don't have the best video camera.

Yup, this looks like the best option for building an SD lover's SD6.

Getting ready for a game this weekend, making sure I was at the right PSI for chroney, decided to test my new mags and see if they could keep up.

@80Psi, blue nozzle, 0.25g bastards.

Hey CobraJr, did you ever put one in your 240?

I was thinking of switching my trigger happy 240 over and was looking for some feedback.
