I believe it means the bushings are bigger. I'm not really sure to be honest, I just no it's better than 6mm. Very Happy

Larger bushings, mean more overall stability in your gearboxes.

If it makes it more stable then a 7mm gearbox will keep the gun working longer, after all it does shoot ~400fps and that will take its tole on the gearbox.

Well for a TM with a M120 spring, IMO it does not need a 7mm with a M120, but on the other hand, the guns is a E1 so it may need it.... I guess

I guess it would allow you to be able to put a stronger spring in it with less work on the internals...maybe.

Well, it would be really helpful, but I think you could do without it.

airsoftguy had his P90 upgraded with an M110 and his spring guide broke so they had to replace it with a metal one. If you upgrade a TM with just metal bushings and add an M120, you will most definitely have problems pretty quickly.

Yeah probably, just check the tappet plate, maybe you might have to replace it.

I would watch the FPS, most airsofting fields dont allow over 410, or an M120

Official, if it is, where is it. It right now has an M120, M130 will line it up at 440 fps.

it would settle well over 400.

Stealth, what do you mean by settle, when it wears down, or the battery.

the M 120, should be 390-400

Say your gun shoots 400 brand new. After a little while, the spring settles in and the fps is more like 380.
