    VFC m4s use v2 gearboxs, so yes that one will work. Also any long type motor will work as well. Yes a nimh battery will be fine.

    +1 to the lonex GB.
    I would use at LEAST .30 gram BBs.

    Also, with that motor and spring, you will need a powerful battery. That 9.6v MIGHT pull if, but it won't last too long.
    If you must have an m160 spring, I suggest a different motor. I'd look into buying a lonex red orange, or a JG blue. All would work great.

    why do you want such a big spring? are you going for a dmr build? that's why they were suggesting a better motor, also aren't springs labled "sp measured with a 0.25 bb?

    We really can't give appropriate feedback because we aren't sure what your goals are.

    I just want to know if that motor can handle that gearbox. I also want to know what spring shoots more fps An sp160 or a m170sp.
