    Hey guys I have a friend who is looking for an airsoft gun. He is a beginner to airsoft and he is also pretty short on cash. He asked me what a good gun for him would be. I thought to myself if this gun ----- http://www.evike.com/product_info.php?cPath=21_44_223&products_id=38177 would thus gun be any good. If you guys have any experience with this gun or know anything worth mentioning I'm sure he would appreciate it. Also he said he wanted a gun that shoots about 400 fps, this gun shoots 350. . . Would this gun be able to handle a m120?

    His budget is about $180 for a new aeg, if you have any ideas for a different gun I would appreciate those as well.

    Well i own one of these guns, if he is playing indor he is fine. But if he wants close to 400 fps, i would buy a km4a1 cylinder.

    Ok, we only play outdoors at a local field.
    What do you think about the gun? Could you tell me a little about it.

    Yes, it has a nice fire rate and decent range. If you have extra money buy a silencer and a longer tightbore. if there is anything else you want to know ask me.

    The CQR Mod 1 has the same 2gx gearbox as the rest of the KWA AEG line. The only exception is that it utilizes a cylinder that is ported more toward the front. That gives it an effective FPS of 340-350. If you replace the cylinder with one for a KM4A1 like shootemsteve is talking about, you should get FPS closer to 400.

    The gearbox should be able to handle a 120 spring. Depending on what FPS you want, a Guarder SP110 will get you FPS of between 405 and 415. In my experience, a Guarder SP120 spring should get you to between 425 to 430 FPS. Of course, I am presuming that you have good compression throughout the pneumatic train to get those figures. Just be aware that you are going tp have to replace the piston head O-rings from time to time. They have a tendency to dry out.

    No. Don't do that. A longer barrel doesn't get you longer range. If you wanna argue it, be my guest.

    Replace the piston head. It's terrible anyway.

    To some extent, yes. I wish I had why HS5 hates KWA. It'd save me some time.

    What are you trying to find?

    Of course I'm right.. I'm a tech who knows what they're talking about. You on the other hand, who are you? You seem to not know much either considering your longer barrel comment..

    But barrel doesn't give accuracy, bud. The hop up, on the other hand, does.

    Why would someone get a Prometheus over a Madbull then?

    Not saying that you're wrong (or right), just want to hear what you think.

    You see, why are you giving advice when you have absolutely no idea what you're recommending they do. Please refrain from it as it only spreads false info.
