Upgrades are highly subjective.

BTW...that is Stock speed for ICS products ~300fps.

You can drop in a heavier spring, but the soft alloy gears ICS uses won't hold up long with a heavy spring.

Back in the day 300fps AEG's we highly skirmish-able and they still are as long as you have skill use your AEG effectively.

Honest, suggestion. Leave it alone. If this is your "only" skirmish-able AEG, don't mess with it. Do only upgrades if you have a spare.

Because, in the last couple of weeks. Some new players tried to upgrade their AEG's...and they are still not working today.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

i appreciate you guys from saving me from tearing apart my gun, but i had no intentions of upgrading when nothing is wrong. but for when it does break id like to new exactly what upgrades are going to do the best job. so if you guys just whant to post some essential upgrades id be very thankful.

There are no "essential" upgrades.

And what you need to fix will depend on what breaks.

If doing a spring upgrade to lets say 340-350, then metal bushings and shimming.

If to upto 450 then http://airsoft-club.com/shop/internal-u ... ull-piston
