List of guns with quick-change springs?

I have a few guys in the office here that are looking at buying guns since we are playing somewhat regularly, but need to swap springs for indoor games.

To keep things simple, is there a list anywhere of guns that have quick change springs, or if anyone has recommendations for good starter AEGs with them that would be great too.

Thanks!

The ARES/STAR guns will have quickchange springs. My beef with them though is the microswitch that tends to fail pretty quickly. You can get a replacement off Digikey or Mouser and I used to have the model number of a similar switch with similar specs but I lost the piece of paper I wrote it on (Kailh should make a similar microswitch though they're quite a big company).

King Arms are pretty solid and cheaper as well, needs 1 part replaced eventually due to wear and tear (it's the cutoff lever, which prevents you from firing in semi once it gets worn down enough).

BTW have you not met with an AV rep yet? I would have suspected that you'd have your tag by now.

Ares Amoeba are an option.
Or ICS with their split gearbox.

off the top of my head

g&g f2000
ka p90 (some models)
most ares guns but the spring guide is shit, usually breaks. the g36 has an upgrade guide but the stock locking screw that aligns the guide doesn't thread in so you need to order the screw separately direct from ares.
ics split gearbox is also an option.

Honestly with the price of guns these days, I'd buy a 2nd one and set it up for cqb fps, that way when your field gun breaks, you have a backup.

King Arms P90's have quick spring changes
APS v2 and v3 HYBRID gearboxes have QC, but their reputation's been pretty shit since their previous lineup of products have been garbage. They seem to have fixed most issues.

ACTUAL quick spring change:

APS UARs
Ares/S&T V3 guns
New CA MP5s
New CA and KA P90s
G&G F2000
Most LMGs, not G&P

Retarded designs with a QC gearbox but require you to take half the gun apart anyway:

APS M4s and AKs
Ares M4s and Amoebas

Hmmm does taking the buffer tube off to change the spring make the KWA ERG quick change?

Yeah, MP5s require you to take the stock off and such.

Stuff like APS and Ares M4s and Amoebas have quick change gearboxes, but the bodies are built so that you can't access the spring guide until you strip the gun down to the gearbox anyway....
