Retaliator Breech Options

What can you do after spring modding a retal?
I own Artofact kits but in reality using a proper breech with full lengths is most likely the smartest choice.
So what's on the table breech wise? I'm aware of a few but I'm not sure how feasible they are in a UK environment.

Brass breech use K&S brass tube, look at Spencer Mod Works or whatever in Australia, he puts a piece of brass tubing in the bolt, then another in the barrel. You use 17/32 ID for the barrel and 9/16ID for the bolt part, you can nest a bit of 17/32ID in the bottom of the bolt as well. It's boring and a pain to do, requires some skill and a lot of fettling. At the end you will be able to shoot 150fps with a 10kg spring or about 130 on a seven. Your rate of fire will be low and the maintainance will require care and regular cleaning. Dusty games outside are not good as are dirty darts off the floor. You do not want grit in a brass breech.
Orange Mod Works are reputedly selling a new version of the S3 breech this year. When is anyone's guess
There was one sold in Trading last week as well. The S3 is fine without the dumb barrel part and with a 7kg tops 120fps. I have one in my Retal, it's OK, just a pain to load vs my flywheelers.

I did this before it was cool.
