Bullshit; I copied from the First post in this thread, and I wrote it too...

"Example; Marui really should sell their guns with metal bushings pre-installed. It's one of the first parts you must add with any spring upgrade.

Smart spring choice; you want a power level that only requires changing the bushings. If it starts to chew up your gears or your piston, the costs escalate. That is why I always suggest an equivalent spring to the PDI150. It works well, is safe for the gun and everyone."

Hi. I'm pretty much a noob at this sport. When iwas reading your thread you mentioned crap ammo. I havent ordered any good sets of ammo but am actually using that canadian tire .12g ammo. My question being is this crap ammo? or would it be wiser to order some .2g ammo and such?

Short answer, yes it is crap ammo.

Get .20 or .25's, .The .12's are only used on low quality guns like EBB's or springers (or guns that you dont care if the bb breaks inside them). Also, dont buy ammo from Canadian Tire.

Apparently they work quite nicely for claymores and launchers/grenades.

Ammo choice is not an upgrade, it's basic information. Not the point of this thread.

Read the rest of this website, start with the Information / FAQ section.

spring, bushings, and a tight bore, if 75 bucks will even cover that.

Spring and bushings will cost you about $40. A 6.04 tightbore is about $60. Not too bad for $100 + installation.

Why did you post in this thread without even reading it? Basic components are listed, and you can then find the prices from any Retailer.

Hi, "Greylocks" i understand that you said that "A stock motor is just fine", but alot of people told me i should get a hammer 1300l motor for my P90 TR (i Had some spare cash) which i am upgrading to 400fps. My goal with buying a new motor is to reach higher fire rating and get the max durability and a safe foundation to upgrade to even higher fps (there is no limit on my teams play ground) My main problem is nobody has told me how much better the hammer 1300l is than the EG1000. I was hoping you could help me here? I really want to learn how to upgrade on my own Aeg; should i just buy a really cheap gear box and learn how to work on it with the money that would have gone to the 1300l instead?

I dont think you got the point of this thread. It's about simple upgrades that work for most guns, not about specifics.

If it's not broke, dont fix it.

If you want to discuss no-limits airsofting, find a board where this is legal to do and chat away.

If you want to go above simple stuff that works, start using the Search button. Plenty of threads of that kind already on this website.

All newbies should simply read it, along with other stickied posts, instead of asking or replying.
Tons of excellent guides here, all ready to be consulted.
