ICS split gearbox VS full size gearbox

Hey there ASC!

Just another simple question/debate about the two different types of gearbox.

Is ICS's split gearbox a disadvantage to a full size/complete gearbox?

Background story to my question.

I had someone asking me the same question because my gun out preformed his and he toss way more money into internal upgrade than I did.

Thanks.

Performance-wise they should be the same. The split mechbox uses the same internal components and as long as air seal/hopup parts are comparable the performance is the same. The split mechbox just allows for WAY easier spring changes.

There's so many variables when it comes to building a gearbox...

I personally won't use the ICS system because the high end upgrade market is designed after the Marui system.

But isn't almost all internal are tm compatable?

Wouldn't the split gearbox create more movement inside the gun thus reduce accuracy?

No. While the gun is together it's as solid as a once piece mechbox (the rear body pin and front mechbox attachment mechanism keeps the mechbox pieces together).

It's not like they're just floating around in there. Besides, the only part that matters is the cylinder (upper mechbox) and barrel connection (compression, etc)
