    I think the links to each of the guides would also suffice.

    The stickied one only has gb mods and not even all of them. Besides, this list is mainly for my reference.

    for rof you forgot short stroking, for trigger response there's always the capacitor mod :p

    I put short stroking under fps, as it barely affects rof and is mainly used to lower fps

    With lipos, capacitors barely do anything, butI'll add it anyway

    LOL, actually meant the capacitors as a joke, but technically shouldn't SS'ing go under ROF since most people usually do that to counter PME?

    Lol well the cap bank is still useful for the people using nimh and nicd.

    You counter pme with a stronger spring. You then ss to lower the fps added by the stronger spring.

    Ah, now I understand why you put in the fps section, good guide. Maybe you could start putting links to guides in here

    That would take so much time...
    Maybe I'll do it after school gets out for spring break. I'm too busy right now.

    I mainly made it as a reference for me to look back on and make sure I didn't forget anything in my builds.

    Sector clip? I missed that one along the way. And Subscribed because I'll be performing surgery on a JG v2 very soon (my first).

    For the barrel stabilization add greasing the outside of the inner barrel.

    Why would you disable safety?

    So that you can install an electrical safety.
    Also, some people don't like safeties.

    Some people don't like electrical safeties because they are terrible and should be burned.
