Troubleshooting & Maintenance
Why do some airsoft guns (i.e. JG, AGM, Dboys, etc) have different FPS figures on the box than what's advertised?
JG airsoft guns tend to be quite misleading at times, since most do not have the JG logo on the box and 99% of the time, the FPS on the box will read either: 328 FPS, 330 FPS, or 338 FPS. Airsoft Megastore wants players to know that the FPS figures on the box are false and should be ignored! Because Airsoft has certain legal importation requirements, JG (and many other airsoft manufacturers, as a matter of fact) airsoft guns are given strict guidelines as to what they can print on the box of their products (these boxes have to match up to the guidelines when being imported and inspected by US Customs, and if the FPS/power figures (often measured in J, or joules) are anything other than the standard 328, 330, or 338 FPS as designated to be printed onto the boxes by the US importation requirements, the entire shipment may be delayed in gaining entry into the United States. That is why Airsoft Megastore takes accurate chronograph readings of all airsoft guns AFTER they reach our warehouse, and advertises the guns with FPS figures that are concurrent to what the guns are actually shooting at (usually measured with 0.20g seamless bbs for metal gearbox electric rifles, gas guns or bolt action snipers, and 0.12g bbs for spring pistols/rifles).
So if you see a FPS figure on the box that doesn't match up to what is advertised, rest assured that the FPS figures on our website are the accurate figures obtained through repeated-trial chronograph testing, and please just ignore the erroneous FPS figures on the box!
