The 2G buckings I ordered from the Pro Shop arrived today, and I couldn't wait to put one in my KWA KG36C.  But, I wanted to do a comparison with the stock bucking.  Unfortunately I don't have the room inside or outside my place to test accuracy.  So, I'm limited to just testing FPS (even though I suspect that the main improvement to be had from the 2G bucking is in accuracy).  I used .25 Excel bio BBs and a 9.6v 3000 mah battery.

I should point out that I was using an aftermarket h nub with the stock bucking, but a regular nub with the 2G (as KWA recommends).  (It would have been nice if the 2G came with a regular nub, but I had one sitting around so I just used that one.)  I've made no other modifications to this gun (yet).

First, ten shots on semi-auto with the stock bucking:

1. 355
2. 358
3. 365
4. 360
5. 347
6. 362
7. 359
8. 347
9. 349
10. 361
Average: 356

Next, ten shots on semi-auto immediately after installing the 2G:

1. 356
2. 360
3. 361
4. 358
5. 354
6. 354
7. 349
8. 358
9. 358
10. 361
Average: 357

Next I figured I'd do some bursts on full auto to "break it in" a bit.

1. 348 at 17.5 rps
2. 359 at 17.8 rps

Next, another round of ten on semi:

1. 356
2. 358
3. 356
4. 355
5. 358
6. 356
7. 354
8. 357
9. 356
10. 354
Average: 356

Conclusion:  Obviously I'm working with sample sizes that are far too small to be statistically significant.  Maybe the most that can be said from this test is that the 2G bucking won't decrease your fps when compared to the stock bucking, and thus the benefit one should look for is in (hopefully) improved accuracy.

I would like to see the FPS difference with the stock nub and 1G.  That way you are only changing one variable.  I've tried this and seen a drop in FPS of 5-10.  I wonder if you would see the same?
