It could have a more powerful spring. Often, the muzzle velocity of these cheap guns becomes it's most touted selling point to leave noobs going "OMFG!!! 400 fps out of the box! Even my friend's TM doesn't do that!". Notice how it's the first thing they seem to point out in the specs? Also, that could be with .12g BBs too. They don't specify the BB weight. And generally, the internals of these cheap AEGs (plastic bushings & pot metal gears) can't really handle the force of a 400 fps spring and they end up breaking very quickly.

Why not gold? That wouldn't be original at all.

Not true- the Crosman Pulse R72 is a G3 SAS clone and totally upgradable. It started with it and for a few months had a JG G3A3 set of internals, a Matrix 3000 Magnum motor, rewired the stock for a large battery- it fired around 350fps and was still cheaper than the TM gun of the same make. In the end I actually returned it to stock status as it makes for a perfect CQB gun in its stock form and I have both my G3A3s intact for me and my wife to use.

Crosman Pulse R76- the Crosman AK-74u clone which also looks to be 100% the same as the 2 TM Betas, and the 3 JG Betas locally. It fires 300fps out of the box so I have kept it for a decent midrange fps SMG but should I want to I could easily and cheaply upgrade it for less than the TM Betas.

Every single other Crosman 'AEG' is a perfect POS however- good for little more than stopping doors or holding paper down on a windy day.

Like you I get the clear guns when I want a project- and I get higher end clones for when I just want a gun that works (the JG G3A3 is firing around 387fps out of the box). In fact locally a bunch of the guys are getting the clear receivers to practice various paint techniques as with a clear gun you can paint both the inside a nice silver colour and the outside a nice gun metal black (or whatever suits your mood- that clear Sig AEG that was painted on here was wicked cool).

'course many on here cant understand NOT buying name brand pro grade stuff- to each their own

just like everyone else said, go with the kraken, head on over to basspro shop (if ur in or near the GTA) and pick one up, there about 120 bucks now, the only problem is everyone wants one, so go down right in the mornign and hope they have them in stock
Underage and waiting...

Hop-up is when the elves use a jump-shot to get more range.
