What weight BB are you using? 500 seems pretty high for a stock gun with .20 or .25s

Well there's your problem! Why in the world are you using .12s? You should be using at least .23s for any decent AEG.

Yup, .12 gram BBs are absolutely terrible for your gun. They're inaccurate as hell, and they can break inside your gearbox sending tiny pieces everywhere and cause big mechanical failures

Doing the math if you are at 500, you will drop to 345 by using .25g or 380 with .20g
