maybe its just me....ICS A3 issues

after about 8 months of play my prized ics -a3 was shooting a unacceptable 286fps,,,down from 340fps. after being adament about playing with an out of the box stock weapon until the spring sagged ( well,,i put metal bushings in but thats it) i decided i had earned the right to upgrade. what a mess,,,was an easy enough swap being a split mechbox but one simple spring upgrade sure upset the balance of the rifle. went to a systema m120. nice quality part,, installation was a snap,,,but only having an 8.4v 2400 m/h nicad the rate of fire seemed as effective as trying to run underwater. forget semi auto,,cycling was erratic and undependable. the weapon shot a respectable and consistant 377fps,,but no more double tap kills with an erratic semi auto,,,,and no kill is more satisfying when you run someone out of ammo in their high-cap pop up and give 'em two in the chest ,,,, so i took the m120 out and put an m100 in( was a gimme ) and im awaiting a piston/piston head to go with the new spring. im hoping i will get a better air seal with this combination. i also plan to go to a m110 spring in the near future. with a better air seal an m110 i should be around 380-390. to make this long story short,,upgrades need to be chosen wisely,,if you are not going with high torque gears/ motor /battery to accompany a high spring upgrade,,,,dont bother. it will only upset the balance between reliability and dependability.

i put an m160 spring in my m4 after uprgrading everything to handle it (foolish mistake i used a half tooth poly carb piston) fired about 3 rounds and the back 1/2 inch of the piston broke off. but it was 3 devistatingly hard shots on the crono
this is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine. with out me my rifle is nothing, with out my rifle i am nothing.
