I am also searching for a way to fix this "problem". I called my local airsoft shop and they told me that there was three solutions(well, really 2 IMO!)
1. Change over to duster gas, which my local field chrono's using green gas, so that's out for me.
2. Cut down the barrel, which I've read here not to do.
3. As cooler weather comes, it will shoot slower and should chrono under 350....which does not really solve the problem long term.
I did call KWA and they directed me to this site. My local shop did say that they were working on a solution, but nothing concrete yet.

OK, so I took a look at the manuals for the M9 & MP9. The valves or "jet nozzle" in both the M9 & the MP9 (KWA Part # 313 for the M9 & Part # 131 for the MP9) appear to be the same however, they do have different part numbers 199-0001 for the M9 and 199-0114 for the MP9. FWIW, the valve for the MP7 has a different part number as well 199-0111, so are these the same part? I know the Danger werx valve will work in the MP9 & MP7, so is it safe to assume that this will also fit in the M9 and reduce the FPS?

I'm not sure if the jet valves are the same or not in the m9, mp9 and mp7. Perhaps it doesn't matter, as the sizing may be similar enough. Someone else will have to chime in on the difference between the KWA valves in pistols and SMGs. However, I can say that I have seen a buddy of mine drop the Dangerwerx valve into his
I can't guarantee that the Dangerwerx valve will fit or function properly in your m9, as no one has seem to done it yet, and is not an aftermarket product that KWA will test, since the aftermarket valve is not made by KWA nor is it endorsed by KWA.
Either someone else will have to chime in, or else you may have to find out yourself.

Thanks, that is encouraging to hear. As I read to do in another post, I have emailed the Pro Shop and I hope to hear back from them with an answer. If they can not help, I may have no other choice than to try the Danger Werx valve....$18 for a part is much less than starting over! Trust me, if it works, I will post my results here. Now it's off to learn how to disassemble my M9 AND get it back together again, which may be easy for some...but not a newbie like me!

Note: The Flute Valve is not a KWA product and will void the warranty on your gun. In addition, I am not sure of any long term effects this may have on performance...hopefully none!
Edit: I also wanted to thank those gave me the advice to try this, otherwise I would not be able to used my pistols at my local field .

As stated above I can't guarantee that the Danger werx valve will fit or function properly in your m9 or will not cause any long term damage and most likely will void warranty (If Any) BUT, this did work for me
Thanks to all of you who made my $170.00 paper weight now a serious addition in my arsenal at the CQB field. I am very grateful. I LOVE This Pistol.
