We had a question from a customer wondering how to do a high FPS upgrade. So we put together this short guide to upgrading your airsoft AEG to a high FPS setup. It lists all the parts you will need in order to do this type of upgrade.
There are 3 approximate FPS levels this guide will show you how to achieve – 450, 490, and 530. In the far right column, listed is the gearbox part that needs to be upgraded and to the left of it is listed the parts we recommend
