ROF

I bought one of my M4's with the intention to eventually upgrade it, the first thing though, is i want to strengthen the gear box, so if you guys can advice me as to what parts will never break! Also i really want to increase my ROF, and was wondering how i could do that.

Parts break... it's a fact of airsoft life. In my experience, Modify makes the best all-around parts. Systema is very good but expensive. If you're worried about the life of your mechbox, don't upgrade the FPS too much and get a sorbo pad for your cylinder head.

For the highest ROF:

1) Keep the spring relatively light. A lighter spring is easier for the motor to pull.
2) High speed gears and a high speed motor.
3) Lipo batteries (even without the above upgrades, Lipos can turn your gun into a beast).

Okay thanks, my spring is relatively light i assume, it shoots roughly 320 fps stock. Which come to think of it is great, i don't mind at all. Thanks for the advice, i'll look into lipo batteries, but i know they put a lot of stress on the guns mechbox. I'll also find parts that can control all the that power.

He's trying to get people to tell him how to make his gun shoot hotter, just asking it in a different way. Same thread:

No help for underagers trying to make their gun shoot 400fps+.

Actually i'm not. I did some research and found out that 320 fps is normal for airsoft, i wasn't sure. In no way am i trying to hurt anybody or get a bad name for myself. Just honest questions to get myself working on my guns, i like to pull things apart so...

Simply upping to a 9.6v battery will be fine for airsoft purposes.. unless you want a rate of fire much higher than real steel.

Exactly how fast are you looking to shoot? Do you even know what your ROF is at now?

I have a 9.6 V 1400 mah battery and it sounds roughly 10 to 12 bps, my cqd shoots something like 16- 18 maybe a happy medium of the two for a field AEG?

You can't tell by "how it sounds". You need to stick it on a chronograph.

Then you don't need to install upgraded parts. Stock ones would be fine for 320fps.

Really high ROF is only useful for machine guns, or if you're using n00b-caps.
