MS90 or (maybe) MS100. An MS100 *should* put it around 340 but could possibly be over 350.

Go for the MS 100, if it end up putting you at like 360, then turn it around, usually running non-linear springs the wrong direction can cut your FPS by as much as 30.

If you're using it for CQB, why risk putting it on the dot for 350? Pop an M90 in there and it should sit around 310 which is great for indoors. 340~350 can hurt a lot at point blank, and the "performance" differences from 310 to 350 within 50 feet are minimal to non-existent.

True that, I guess i was thinking about multi-purpose use.

I have an MS90SP in my C8. That, plus the bearing spring guide and tightbore net me a very consistent 325 with .2g. I run it mostly indoors and it's been awesome in every way. Outdoors I run it with .28 (about 270 fps) and it's been an awesome performer even out to beyond 125 feet.

Yep. That should be a perfect spring. It says 330 FPS right there and 350 IMO is a bit hot for CQB. Most places I know have limits of 330. If it's still shooting too hot just remember to flip the spring, more coils goes to back otherwise.

I'm assuming you play at XT, the FPS limit there is 350 so you will be just on the limit. Just remember, its a limit, not a goal.

A weaker spirng will cut some of the distance of the bb,but if you put a good inner barrel and hop up rubber you will gain in accuracy outweight the fps drop.

Correct. Velocity has little to do with range. A good hopup sleeve will have far more effect on the gun's range than its velocity. My weakest gun is my Real Sword Type 56 (100% stock shooting 305-310 fps) and it will outrange any of my AEGs. I'm not sure how far it shoots, as the BB is out of sight before it drops. In close second place is my custom C8 shooting at 325 fps. This gun has a sick range as well.

my m16 run about 320fps and i'm still able to shoot .28 bb's and have the distance to reach out and touch someone,with only those minor upgrade and running a modify s90 spring.My friend as a kraken ak with the same set up and he makes me run for cover when he's shooting at me.Also a weaker spring will help lower the stress on you're gearbox internal.The kraken ak only has plastic bushings and the gear are not the same quality has the TM,CA,G&G,JG,etc...

And it's 320fps with .2 not .28.
