Dip it in WD-40, wrap it in duct tape.

LOL.....or you can round the the edges where the cylinder sits. if you have a g&g i believe they came pre rounded. also make sure that the hop up sits againts the gearbox nice and tight, that helps a lot too.

had an experience wit this gun so i'll give you some pointers.

-its going to be tempting to take the barrel off, but make sure you back the hop up off completely if u dont want to rip the nub right off. it doesnt put enough spin on hevier bbs (had to do an extensive mod on mine) but madbull red bucking will fix that without mods

-if you decide to go the lipo route make sure that you use 7.4v as the 11.1v will burn your switch (propreitary).

-the selector switch gear needs to be tightened up and locktighted or it wont be ambidextrous anymore.

-round the edges on the gb because if u crack it, it will become a 450 dollar paper weight.

-the internals are good enough for m110 spring (would not suggest exceeding) definitely needs shim job.

if i can think of anything else i will let you know but if you fix all the small issues you will definitely enjoy it. the only reason i sold mine was i keep coming back to and ar platform.

doesnt the PTS use a version 3? the A & K ACR uses the version 2 with the long air nozzle (similar to SR25 that uses the regular piston/cylinder combo.) which Masada are you getting?
