View Full Version : How to get good performance from my victor 2/II?

11-11-2006, 06:29 PM
I bought a Victor 2 and to sum it up, it doesnt shoot the straightest. What simple low/no cost stuff can I do to it to get the best performance from it? Also, is that little black thing on the side below the chamber feed for the oil and what oil should I use? Thanks.

make your paint to barrel match (bore size) as close as can be.

get a new barrel


id suggest that one, and definatly buy from that site, the guy who owns it is a mod here and he is an A+ person and will give u the best service around

Thanks but I think the barrel is fine, its the stock from the Victor II V type goggle set. Although, I still had the inaccurate problem before but the O-ring broke on the barrel and I need to know where I can get one that size. Im going to check at some local hardware stores.

Believe me, get a new barrel. The stock ones are cheap. any new barrel that is not stock will help sooo much.

Ok, anything else I can do to improve performance?

some of this will cost quite a few bucks, but....

make it LP
new bolt
new reg
go HPA
and id say new ASA and use macro, it will be better in the long run

K, I'll look into those. Thanks.

Always keep your internals clean. I take mine apart and REALLY clean it and I can definately see the difference

Just kidding..but really.
I'd definatly look for a barrel.
Redz Peppersticks are 45$, and shoot better then freaks IMO.

can you name some good barrels?

12-11-2006, 05:15 PM
Smarts Parts progressive barrels are alright. Im happy with mine at least.

i think Smart Parts Freaks and the custom products barrel kits are the way to go if you wanna get a real mans barrel

get a JJ or Smart Parts barrel if you wanna get a one piece which are cheaper and in reality all u need for a spyder

for better consistentency id get HPA at least, new barrel

if you want the best go Low Pressure (LP)

oh the black thing is the detent. it is not for oil. it keeps the balls in the chamber until they are shot and keeps the gun from double feeding. any oil will work. i use gold cup oil and it works fine.

Go for a cheap J&J ceramic, SmartParts Teardrop/Progressive, or CP 1 piece for the barrel.


Those two links should guide you to your paint to barrel match.
