No.. interally, they're both the same without upgrades.

You'll notice how higher-end guns don't shoot 400fps stock. There's a reason for that. Companies that make low-end guns know n00bs jump all over FPS.. so they'll make a gun and stick in a really powerful spring the gun was never designed to take and advertise "400+ FPS".

Armalites use a Version 2 mechbox (SR-25 uses a modified V2). The version 2 mechbox has some weakpoints, and without certain upgrades or a reinforced shell, repeatedly shooting at 400FPS will break it.
