Off the top of my head, They're in Hong Kong but I'm sure there are places in the US that sell them. Seriously though... that's a bloody expensive investment to fix a percieved accuracy problem when simply replacing the hop-up rubber and spring is all you need.

Ever think that the other players might just be a lot better?

There's a little saying in airsoft: Upgrade the player, not the gun.

"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."

Velocity has little to do with range and accuracy. My lowest velocity gun (Real Sword Type 56) shoots 310 with .2, and I've hit targets out past 175 consistently.

If you're getting outranged by those guns, I would also recommend you change the hopup rubber. That will far more of an effect on your range and accuracy than a stronger spring. Also, make sure that your hopup is set right. I've seen a couple of guns where the owner has complained of poor range where it was just the hopup that wasn't set correctly.

I would also recommend playing more so you can learn to properly set your hopup rubber, My stock TM P90 out ranges my stock M4. internals design plays a factor.
