^No, I have a JG SG1, but not a PSG1.
I have no interest in purchasing $450 AEGs that my $60 springer can outperform Wink

I put in a 300% spring by systema, so it shoots about 520, and spent about 300-400 dollars on upgrading. are you sure your $60 can outperform this??

If he is intrested in the JG BAR-10 ASGI is selling the G-Spec (I think) on memorial day weekend for 60$. http://www.airsoftretreat.com/ If you scroll down a little above halfway you can see there blowout sale.

1. Your WAY off topic
2. Just because you put in a 300% spring doesn't mean its accuracy is great
3.You contradicted yourself by saying YOU installed the spring, where as before you said that you took it into the store and they upgraded everything with the "best" parts.

They put it in. I believe they put it in because it is over 520 fps. The gun is far ranged. and it is very accurate. I put that because I believe thats the spring that was put in

^That's not quite a $450 gun anymore though is it?

Let's see, my $60 gun:
1. Shoots 440 fps with .20
2. 375 fps with .28
3. Delivers 18" groups at 190'
4. Max range with .28s is about 230', but I don't shoot past 200' because I like hitting the target every time, lol.
5. Is absolutely silent past 20'
6. Never needs batteries, gas, and it works perfectly in every temperature.

And the best part: I haven't put $1 into upgrades yet.

Stock, the PSG1 shoots what, 290 fps? Range is about 150' max? Accuracy is about 12" at 100'?

In order to come even close to the performance of even a mid end bolt springer, you need a hot spring, a tightbore barrel, and the accompanying parts to ensure it doesn't instantly blow up. And then, you need to worry about custom batteries, as the stock doesn't hold too large of a battery. And then, you can't use it in too cold of temps, because it can snap the front of the gearbox off.

So let's see:
In order to get a PSG1 shooting even near my little $60 springer, you need to add about $350 worth of parts. That's $795 to outperform a $60 gun.

That's why I stick with springers Wink

EDIT: And Prodigy, that ASGI sale is only at their walk in store unfortunately, not through the website.
