My Maruzen didn't need downgrading, came in at about 300fps if memory serves.  Whether this would be the same for an ACM clone I'm really not sure.

Used it for nearly a full day at Spectre Urban once when my AEG died and my pistol didn't work because it was so cold.  Although unlike TM shotguns that fire 3 BBs with one pump, these only fire one, so there's no rate of fire to speak of, however they're a lot more reliable than GBBs that can gas out or jam at a critical moment.

i would go for the acm clone and save a bit of cash and if u ring airsoft world before ordering and tell them that it needs to be downgraded to 330 fps they would probably do it for a little bit extra
The enemy is pretty much anyone who's going to get you killed, no matter what side he's on.....

might give them a buzz now actually, i don't trust myself taking something apart, i'm a bit heavy handed, and tend to brake anything like that i've ever attempted  :laughsoutloud:

spoke to them on airsoft world, due to the set up of the gun (being pump action) th downgrade service would be between 25 and 30 quid dude.

Would work out the same after you factor in the downgrade costs, may as well get the Maruzen.

My Maruzen came with a red dot sight too, although I never bothered to fit it, it went on a different gun.
