"This upgrade kit u get what u pay for. The compression parts were excellent. However the gears and piston were not per say an upgrade. The set up I was running was this kit, matrix high speed 3000, and an 11.1( for the few seconds the gearbox worked it was around 35-40 rps)The sector gears axel snapped and had 2 teath shear off after 50 shots or so. At the same time the metal tooth pistons tooth set snapped into thirds. The gears are probably good for a normal setup, but if you do a high speed/torque setup get a different high speed/torque gear set and a full metal tooth piston. Overall. Good compression parts, but a bad gear set and piston.

"I have been using this kit in my Classic Army M15 for about 4 months now and it has worked out pretty well so far. The only issue I have with the kit is the grease that comes with it does not have much and it does not come with shims which isn't that big of a deal anyways. Also the stock CA motor would not pull the M120 spring so I have an M100 in there right now and it shoots about 340-350 fps. Overall a pretty solid kit for the price especially because I got mine when it was a doorbuster for only $50.

"Great kit, but one thing of note. If you don't have a high torque motor your going to need one to pull the M120 Spring. A stock motor won't even budge it.

"Overall, a good kit. Parts are made of steel, not aluminum, and do appear to be m120 capable.

Just installed them yesterday. Most parts that came in the set are of very good quality and workmanship, with additional seals to increase compression. They obviously were much better than the original ones I had in my gun. It sounds as if this kit may generate up to 130-135 possibly, will have to check.

During installation, we found out that the cylinder that comes with the kit is quite superficially polished on the inside, which doesn't produce decent pressure. Had to use a well-polished native cylinder and it gave an amazing compression.

The set doesn't come with shims (are a must) and there are no bushing bearings either. Need to have those just in case the original ones are not good enough. Grease that comes with the set is not really good either, and the amounts are small, so get more for both piston and the gears.

If you get all of the things on top of the kit, you'd be all set. Still a steal at $60, and with a bit of extra money would give you a very good tune-up kit. Would not give it a 5 star, but is definitely a a 4-star.

"the best ftk deal first the 18:1 gears are standard torque and are CNC steal which are best with m120 springs and the full tooth piston for durability. what impressed me was the air-nozzle witch was a air-seal nozzle. last was the compression components which where made to go with each other and create a amazing air seal.

PROS
~air-seal nozzle
~piston
~gears
~comes with lube
~m120 spring w/ spring guide

CONS
~doesn't come with shims(there $4)

"Love it. Every part looks nice, polished and strong. Much nicer looking than the stock brass stuff. My stock G&G Raider received a jump in FPS from 330 to 407 FPS after I install the kit and firing is now a lot more smoother. Highly recommend this for G&G raider owners!

"I was looking for a gear set to replace my systema high torque that failed last weekend and decided to pick up the whole kit instead. I am installing them today and will post more reviews. From the look of these parts, they are better than the Guarder FTK kits because these parts are all CNC made! For those who didn't know CNC is much better than casting any day. It arrived yesterday well packaged and all the parts look very high quality.
