Expanding on what Styrak said, it actually depends on a few things.

-The battery
-How good the wiring is
-What type of connectors are used (most airsoft guns use tamiya connectors.. these have a SHITLOAD of resistance in them. Most people replace them with Deans or similar).
-How well the mechbox is greased and shimmed

I don't think the type of bearings or bushings really makes a difference.

Nearly every airsoft gun has to cycle fully in semi before getting a shot off, so you'll always have that delay. AFAIK the PSG-1 and L85A1 are the only two airsoft guns that pre-tension the spring, and from what I've been told it's more of a pain in the ass than it's worth. (question to anyone who knows, does the SR-25 do this as well?)

"Someone in a Prius tried to race me at a stop sign the other day. I couldn't believe it. I had him for the first 100 feet or so but I can only walk so fast."
