Unbelievable gears. I can't believe AirsoftGI is carrying them now. I've had these (and other Seigetek) gears in my guns for two years now, and they're indestructible. I have the Revolution set in my high-speed gun shooting 38 RPS, and I have the Torque gearset in my high power gun shooting 540 FPS.
You have to have a really good gearbox to put these into. No crappy bushings or china-made gearbox shell. Have them professionally installed if you aren't an experienced gearbox tech.
Some of you may know that I have been working on my airsoft guns for approximately five years now. From AEG's to GBB's. I've always had a reason to repair or upgrade a few guns here and there. I've been playing Airsoft for about six years now. I usually prefer the fast paced CQB games, but I do play Milsim games when asked to. I started playing airsoft at a place called Airsoft Playground before Tac City North was around. On days that I do play, the most common type of Airsoft Gun I see on the field is an AEG. A lot of people, back then, were not very knowledgeable on the internal of an Airsoft gun. To start off, different airsoft guns have different versions gearbox. However, the types of parts inside are all the same. One of the most important parts is the gears, which operate the internal of the airsoft gun.
Airsoft GI sells a wide variety of gears from different companies suitable for your limits and desires. To those just looking to increase the durability of your gun, Echo 1 Performance Gear Sets have different ratio gear sets from speed to torque. Continuing up the ladder, for those that are looking to increase both performance and durability, Siegetek gears are the way to go. The type of material Siegetek uses as well as the precise specification of every tooth spacing and diameter on the gear shaft are what give them their name. Siegetek, former RiotSC, has manufactured gears for some time now but it is only recently that Airsoft GI has finally carried these amazing products. Whether, you want a high speed setup or a designated marksman rifle that shoots at 600+ feet per second, their selection of gears can handle them all. The only downside is that currently, they are only offered to airsoft guns that use a Version 2 or a Version 3 gearbox.
Don't think Echo 1 and Siegetek are the only two brands that I would recommend. Airsoft GI carries gears from manufacturers such as Modify, Bravo, and Prometheus, which are great gears as well. Some manufacturers such as SHS, X- Hightec, Combat Squad, etc. also manufacture great gears; however, in my opinion, they are not as well made as Siegetek. Once you have decided what gear set you want, next is the installation. For those that are just beginning to learn to upgrade their gun, its important that you find a qualified technician, whether its a recommendation from a friend or a store tech and you trust. The techs at Airsoft GI are highly qualified for any work done to any gun.
When I work on my airsoft guns, I try to depict the best way to achieve maximum efficiency while maintaining my desired velocity and rate of fire. I would choose a gear set with a given ratio to calculate an approximate rate of fire output on a certain Lithium Polymer battery. I would then polish my gears to reduce friction between the shafts and bearings. By polishing those critical areas, any grease and lubricant applied will be evenly distribute along those surfaces, and prevent them from going to unwanted places.. I use a different lubricant for the compression parts, but that will be another article..
In conclusion, by determining the right set of gear and reducing as much friction on the surface as possible, you could achieve a reliable,
long lasting setup. But most importantly, unless you are working on your own guns, itís important that you have the right technician for the job. I am Marq, be safe, and get out and play airsoft.

What does 14.09 mean
I want these gears for my aeg but i don't know what the numbers do or mean and how it helps the performance of my aeg?

(I have this same question)
Staff Answer: It depends on what sort of performance you want out of your gun. Most players prefer high speed gears over high torque gears. Generally, any gearset that has a ratio of 20 is fine for general airsoft play.

So what do you think the best way to go is? High Speed or Low rate of fire?
102 days ago
Staff Answer: It represents the ratio of the gears. The standard ratio for gear is generally around 18. A lower number means that it is a "high speed" gear, which means that each revolution of the motor results in more distance covered in the sector gear. Lower ratio gears means a higher rate of fire, but require a very strong motor for turning even basic springs. A higher ratio gear allows you to pull a very stiff spring more easily, but at the cost of a lower rate of fire.
