Medium-to-long rifles are one thing, heck, I'll even play CQB with up to 370fps. But 400fps across the board long and short? That seems excessive and dangerous. Newbies are going to be caught between using overly hot guns and inexperienced DIYS (or payind someone else) downgrading right off the bat.

And frankly, even with a reinforced mechbox, I'd consider running 400fps on a version 2 a less than appealing idea. Especially with an aluminum piston head.

Unless Ken listed his fps wrong, of course.
I agree, My theory is that high numbers attract un-informed players. I'm not trying to bash Ken. He has done more for this sport then I ever will, and I think hes a great guy, but when it all comes down to it, hes still running a business, and the player who doesn't know any better, wants the gun with the highest numbers.

Maybe I'm wrong, but thats my theory.
