so yes, there's a fine point between fps and range but higher fps doesn't always equal better range
Is that a TM AK? Their hop-up is fantastic.

Agree. Hop up is king though. My PDW is getting quite weak, the spring is ancient, and yet the range is incredible. The thing is shooting 245fps with .20g bbs right now. Accuracy is awesome as well, despite the 141mm barrel, the gun is more accurate than many armalites, and my own Famas. i.e. guns with barrels over 3X the length. It's all thanks to the TM hop-up.
