You can find miniature milling machines for very little cost, and a few are even convertable to CNC.

If you have an interest in machining, I would suggest looking through craigslist.  A lot of hobby machinists start small, outgrow their machines and will have the proper tools for them.  You can find unwanted machines and tools for next to nothing.

Good advice...I think I'll follow it.

I might be looking into that. I have just been using a dremel to cut the slide on my FPG and it worked alright. Of course the cuts weren't perfect, but I'd say I did alright. When the ATP Auto comes out I'm definately porting the slide.

Optimus if you cranked the spring pressure up at the guide rod but don't give it more gas I am sure it would cause cycling problems.

A spring that is too stiff can definitely cause cycling problems. You may be able to resolve this issue with a high flow release valve like hurricane you find on the proshop or use a softer spring.

Personally, I can not see the major advantage to losing gas efficiency for the tippy-toe's worth of power factor.  Especially if it starts messing with you gun's ability to cycle.

If anything, you could switch the guide but keep the factory recoil spring.

Also make sure that kit was intended for KWA product.  If it's made for any other brand, it can break your gun.

Probably.  I used the KWA spring with an after market metal guide.  When I used the upgraded spring when firing  the gun wouldn't lock back the slide consistently after cycling.

I don't know if they will fit on the ATP, but either way, don't buy them. I bought a pair and I had to drill out the rear sight to get the fiber optics to fit in, and they don't give you a way to attach the front sight to the gun.

I have a little 3 axis cnc machine (12x18 inch cutting area).  I used a fine point engraving bit and cut it right into the metal 0.005 of an inch.
