As much as some people may have whined about it, I think that is very interesting to look through. The entire image is not loading for me however ...

Also, I think the note for Trippy's MP-5 should be changed from "old" to "horridly abused" as it is more accurate. :D

Awesome, will you do this for other Open Sessions?
also, does the hop up change the FPS, mine was "off", as in, the dial was turned down?
and at the last half i got hop up adjusted, so im just curious!

To clarify for the record, my Kar98 is not a Tanaka. It is a custom build, but is using a VSR-11 for the platform.

If the hop-up is off, the FPS will be higher, but not dramatically. We keep our eyes open for someone who tries to crank it way up to slip by.

Yes, we will be doing this for every game this season. The whole point with this study is to see if a raise in FPS is even warranted so having the data will be key.

Shady, I will update my records.

Mine is a G3, it says G36 :P

Pure awesome(ness)

i know im a little slow but how does the FPS ratings at MAA games help with the case study since the established limit has been Under 400 FPS so most people will be using guns that dont go that high. Just wondering

The case study was developed in direct response to players claiming "new Chinese clone guns come out of the box shooting at a higher FPS than MAA rules" and that being the case we were effectively ostracizing new players if they purchased Chinese clone guns. What the study has proven is that only a small minority of players actually have guns that shoot over 400 FPS and of those 1/3 upgraded their guns to be so. October's data has not been entered into our database yet but we will be reporting our official results over the Winter.

Gabe et al
Remember that October's chronoing was done on SFP's big red chronos, not the MAA's shooting chronos, and the data will be skeewed accordingly.

I'm interested to see the results from October 10th. My C/A M15 chronoed at 418. They said that day the machine they used was off. I hope that was the case.

Just a note, I found my FPS to be around the same at SFP and at MS40 (over 400 by the way). I'll be interested to see how other data pans out.
