Does anyone know what the stock spring strength of anICS MP5A4 (http://www.airsplat.com/P_222.htm) is, or the equivalent of it is?

Since they are claiming 360fps out of the box, that would be the equivalent of a M110 spring.
However, farther down in the description, they are claiming 400fps, which would be a M120 spring.

You can find the spring table in the FAQ under Upgrades.

I saw that but I had read a post from a guy who has the same MP5 and when he chronoed it, it read around 350. I was contemplating whether or not to buy an M120 or M130, but i just was curious as to what was already in it.

Another quick question. I've decided to get an M140 and was wondering according to the description above do i need any other upgrades.(i'm using a 9.6v 3000mah battery to)

Not sure if it applies to you, but that weapon will not be allowed at TASO ops. If you don't plan on following TASO rules or attending TASO ops, then disregard.

Typically with a M140 spring, you'll need torque-up gears and upgraded spring guide. You can get away with using the other parts for now. However, that gun description claims it has a number of reinforced parts, but unfortunately I don't have concrete evidence that those parts are any good. Historically, the ICS internals aren't all that great.

Like I mentioned earlier, the strongest spring you could use is a M120 if you plan to use TASO rules or attend TASO ops.

i realized that according to TASO rules it couldn't exceed that fps. I have decided to stick with the m120 because i do plan on playing with you guys one day. thanks for the help
