    I have a umarex h&k g&g mp5 a4 model and want to upgrade to a m130 spring.
    The last thing i want to do is break the gearbox or strip the gears so i need to know what i need to know what to upgrade to be safe.

    Well, it's possible you can just drop that spring in and it will work, given you've tuned the gearbox. If it doesn't, the only thing you'd need to upgrade is the motor, everything else can handle that spring.

    Again, don't forget tuning. AoE and shimming are at the top of the list for a reliable gun.

    If you look in the pinned topics on this forum, you will find what you are looking for and more. Read through them, learn about how your gun works, learn about what you need to do to make a gun work well.

    Google is your friend, don't be afraid to do a little research.

    Never be afraid to ask a question if you can't find the answer on your own.

    Currently, Lonex motors are very popular, and for good reason. If you want a new motor, get a Lonex motor.
