That's not entirely accurate. CA started building guns with increasingly higher fps than TM (well before today's clones came along) and every just followed suit. Everyone figured out that most people outside of Japan who buy TM just ends up upgrading the springs anyways, so offering a hotter gun to begin with constitutes a competitive edge.
