SniperMechanic VSR/GBB Flamingo Bucking 50 Degree

Article number: VSRF50
Availability: In stock
Delivery time: In Stock at UK Warehouse

The new Flamingo VSR/GBB Gen2 bucking from SniperMechanic. Improved contact patch, placement and materials.

This bucking will fit any rifles/pistols that use the VSR/GBB style bucking.

This bucking was a long time project in the making, one of the earliest but most challenging. However it's here and it's unique design and material offers great shot to shot consistency and a very flat flight path.

What makes the Flamingo bucking unique, more so than it's design is the material itself.

This is designed for GBB/VSR cut barrels, UNBRIDGED ONLY

GEN 2 - Improvements

The Gen 2 buckings are now made by a new factory, using a new mould process and material. The design has also been tested and tweaked to suit unbridged barrels for the most consistent contact width and length. These will no longer be suitable for bridged barrels.

The Gen2 Flamingo comes in 50A and 60A Shore, 50A is suitable for pistols and sub 400 builds, the 60A is for anything else.


  • Maple Leaf Crazy Jets GBB/VSR - Suitable
  • Maple Leaf 6.02 Series GBB/VSR - Suitable
  • Morpheus Unbridged - Suitable
  • TNT Barrels Unbridged - Suitable
  • LayLax Unbridged- Suitable
  • Action Army Unbridged - Suitable
  • PDI (Genuine ones) Unbridged - Suitable, but very tight and need he use of an Omega nub due to tiny window
  • PDI Clone style barrels - Untested
  • EdGi Unbridged- Varies, some hop windows were suitable during testing, others were not as the window was shallow/to short.
  • Lambda Unbridged - Suitable
  • Other Unbridged Stock Barrels - most stock barrels won't fit due to the narrow width of windows, especially on WE/TM

Install tips:

  • For best results use on a barrel with a large window
  • Use a suitable concave nub in rifles, such as T-nub, Omega Nub, Bridge nub, H nub, panthera nub, gunsmithy TDC
  • For pistols, the standard V shape arm gives great accuracy, but for the best range use a Hadron H Plate or Maple Leaf Key
  • PTFE rear of bucking
  • Lube outside of bucking when installing into tight chamber as the material is very grippy.

Bought this along side its big name competitor, the quality and feel of the flamingo was head and tails above its competition and would recommend to anyone looking for a good quality hop rubber.

Well made. Def needs the PTFE tape as Carl mentions above. Still lost a little fps as the MK23 nozzle doesn't seem to fit as snug as the PDI W hold rubber. This doesn't bother me because I have gained in lift and fine tuning capability. The flight of the bb is straight and flat with just a little curl up at the end, well pleased. I will see how it beds in on the 23 and if all good I will change my two VSR's from PDI's to flamingo's. Good service as usual from Skirmshop. Many thanks.

Seems too work quite well, definatley needs PTFE tape as suggested too keep a good air seal. will keep test firing and see how well it does over time. Will also be testing in a few different brand barrels soon, too try get the most from it.
