What runs the fps in our guns?

Post by RiceKhaos on Sun Mar 24, 2013 12:33 pm

I have an m4 that has a stripped piston. im just uncertain that if i change the piston would it effect my fps velocity on my gun?

like would the piston being change to a different piston change my fps?

that really depends, there are alot of factors that influence fps. Everything from bad air seals, to a botched hopup, or even a tightbore barrel can all effect your fps. However, your fps will stay the same if you get the same piston. There are hundreds of different pistons out there with different weights/teeth/materials etc that all have different effects.

So i guess to answer your question, no it shouldnt change the fps, unless you get a completely different one .

Well i can tell you up front, cqb will rip you off.

as for the piston, it really doesnt matter, as long as it has metal teeth. a slight deviation in fps from the original wont hurt much.

On a side note, a lighter piston will give you a slight boost in rof/fps

nah man, you would be fine picking up a piston from there. im sure they can install a piston without fucking up (as long as they arent modifying anything, they have a habit of swiss cheesing pistons horribly, and cutting springs way too short), however ill install it for free when im back.
