Their limited to the same fps of AEG, sometimes a bit more.

Adding 50-100fps and a longer tightbore doesn't double or triple your range.

Inter shot consistency does. It's a common noob mistake to think a higher FPS makes for a more accurate or distant shooting gun: if you can get a consistent velocity shot after shot, accurate barrel and a heavy BB that will stay on course, you can start getting a consistent trajectory. And once you get that you can start arcing shots, more or less like on an airgun or real gun.

You should come out to a game sometime (a real one), you'd learn a lot.
