    Ok, I know a poor mans crono is an aluminum coke can. But how far away should you stand? What penetration is what fps roughly? If it doesn't Peirce it at point blank is it safe to say fps is under 250???

    So from that I would say any gun incapable of completely penetrating at least one side following the correct procedure would be under 290 FPS.

    Coca Cola and Sprite cans will be the best to use. pepsi and other drinks(beer cans) are not always the same density.

    Took the gun to AEX today. These were the crono results with .20

    107fps-226fps-235fps-260fps-266fps-242fps-261fps-258fps and it continued to fluctuate around 250-260 fps. I'm having it upgraded to 380+fps.

    Sounds like you have a tiny hopup seal issue.

    It actually stoped and became consistent at around 255fps. It was weird at first but fine after a few shots. So it was cronoing 250-256-255-253-257-256-254-ECT...

    AEX has it now so they will fix any problems. Other than this, the AUG is awsome!

    It supposedly has metal bushings, but if not I'm having them installed with the spring. Yes its a wonderful TM. If AEX sees anything bad they will replace that too.
