Upgrade your plastic spring guide to the G&G Version 2 Spring Guide with ball bearings. Stock spring guides can break easily, especially on upgraded guns. If your gun is shooting above 320FPS with .20g BBs you absolutely need a G&G spring guide. The ball bearings on this model are especially good for upgraded guns because they help reduce tension on the spring by allowing it to spin freely, thus reducing the probability of the spring breaking.

Full metal Spring guide. It's G&G what's not to like? I like the two metal wings on the top of the spring guide. They are small and that makes it easy to stick'em in the Gearbox while compressing a spring. They have never popped out either it left unattended like some other spring guides I've worked with.
G&G... its teh bestest!
Fits in the all the gearboxes that I've worked with really well.

G&G v2 spring guide
well I just got this to go in my m16a4, and as the previous reviewer said, the bearings keep it from scratching the spring guide, but more importantly, they keep the tension off of the spring. Springs can shatter from being twisted too much. With ball bearings that will not happen, and you will get a slight fps increase due to the bearings acting as spacers. The rof doesn't really slow down because the spring only produces thrust in one direction; the way it is supposed to.
-G&G quality, just like the upgraded reinforced piston it will never break
-$13, seems to be the normal price of a v2 spring guide
-none, though if you choose to instal it in a JG v2 black gearbox shell, you may notice that it doesn't completely close until you use the screws to get the leverage to close the shell, this spring guide is a tight fit in clone v2s
2008-05-27 16:09:15 K. CROSBY This spring guide is solid. It is defiantley worth spending the extra money to get the bearings. For those of you who don't know what the bearings are for, when a spring coils, it twists a little bit. On a spring guide without the bearings, the spring coils, twists, and scrapes/wears down the base of the guide. With bearings, the spring has something to twist with making the base stay good as new.
This guide will last very long so you don't have to worry about replacing it anytime soon!
