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

Blue sticker = 50 Degree

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, while I won't go into the details of the exact material I can list some of the properties below:

  • Tough
  • Abrasive resistant
  • Tear resistant. The tear-strength ranges between 500-100 Ibs / linear inch, which is far superior to rubbers.
  • Excellent elastic memory
  • Temperature resistant - At cold temperatures, it will remain flexible down to -68°C (-90°F).
  • Weather resistant -to oxygen, ozone, sunlight and general weather conditions.

This is designed for GBB/VSR cut barrels (ideally unbridged), however some bridged barrels work.

Compatibility:

  • Maple Leaf Crazy Jets - Suitable
  • Maple Leaf 6.02 Series - Suitable
  • TNT Barrels - Suitable
    LayLax - Suitable
  • Action Army - Suitable
  • PDI (Genuine ones) - Suitable, but very tight and need he use of an Omega nub due to tiny window
  • PDI Clone style barrels - Untested
  • EdGi - Varies, some hop windows were suitable during testing, others were not as the window was shallow.
  • Lambda - Suitable for the open cut window
  • Other Barrels - Untested

Install tips:

  • PTFE the barrel under where the rear of the rubber goes and then over it once installed.
  • 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. Avoid using Panthera/Skee nubs
  • For pistols, the standard V shape arm gives great accuracy, but for the best range use a Hadron H Plate or Maple Leaf Key

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.
