It includes a metal spring guide with bearing, metal piston with piston head and a beefy high performance spring. Installing the spring will increase the rifles cocking effort but will produce on average an increase of 50-60 fps over the rifles original muzzle velocity.

This kit does come with instructions for installing the kit into a MK96. The installation varies for the Mauser and ECHO 1 in regards to removing the bolt from the rifle however installing the kit into the bolt is the same for all models.

    3 out of 5- Be cautious :(

    While this package comes with a metal piston and spring guide, it also comes with a heavier spring. Sure it might up your fps a lot, but only for a few hundred shots. I bet no one knows that the stock spring on the mk96 wears down around a steady 390 fps (with .2s) over a couple hundred shots. Same applies for this spring. A high quality piston alone costs twice as much as this package. This is just another scam to get the noobs to upgrade their rifle so that it has high fps. Let me tell you fps is not everything.

    In addition, just because this package comes with a spring guide and piston does not mean your rifle won't break. Ever take into consideration that the trigger box might completely be destroyed after firing a few hundred or maybe fewer shots?

    There are other necessary upgrades that are needed to use a heavier spring. Piston, spring guide, cylinder, cylinder head, sears or zero trigger, bolt handle, receiver, etc.

    O, and I can prove the fact that the mk96 stock spring wears down quickly. If it did not wear down and shoot a steady 465-500 fps, the internals would not last for more than a few months. So be considered lucky that the spring wears down, otherwise you would have to drop in at least $500 worth of upgrades.

    The only reason I gave this a three is because the piston and spring guide will prove more durable than the stock parts. I recommend if you are on a budget and cannot purchase laylax or pdi parts, that you buy this upgrade package and only use the piston and spring guide. Do not use the spring, otherwise your rifle will begin to wear quickly in other places and probably break. Besides this low quality spring will wear down to around the high 300's anyways.

    Becoming a serious bolt action player is not cheap nor easy. To get a rifle to shoot like the pros you need serious upgrades and a lot of skill. This package does not provide you with serious upgrades at all.

    Take this advice if you plan on staying with the bolt action: Upgrade other internal parts before upgrading the spring. In other words, upgrade for durability and then drop in some kind of high powered spring.

    5 out of 5- springs

    All springs wear down over time. However, I have both sold and used this kit myself. It is still holding true after many games of use, and it has dropped in FPS only by 20. Peep is correct in saying that if your trigger sear is inferior you should seriously consider upgrading that too. I did not need to change my sear until i put a stronger spring than this one in. So if you are looking to add a little more power to your gun get this spring. It is an inexpensive way to bring your gun to a more competitive level. As a suggestion, I would also purchase a 6.01 tight bore barrel. The barrel will increase the accuracy and add yet a little more power.

    Keep shooting.

    5 out of 5- It's like I bought a new gun...for 30 bucks.

    ...And not just a little 30 dollar springer, but like a 250 dollar gas sniper.

    I'm a big fan of upgrading, especially when you don't have to search the entire earth to find 5 different parts. There's nothing like taking a worn-down springer with a battered spring that only gets about 180ft and throwing in a nice upgraded spring...and watching the BB go from 180ft to 250ft.

    This is a nice package, and price is veeeery right. The only con about it is that it's an upgrade...and some people are a bit hesitant when it comes to upgrading...but the package comes with instructions, so you don't have to do any guessing.

    So...In Summary...

    Better FPS
    Better Range
    Better Accuracy
    Better Everything
    Better Get This Upgrade
