"If you want a cheap accuracy upgrade, try rounding or polishing the feed lips on your magazine. That in itself will boost the feed and flight." -Spiggy

It was more like an informal/casual question that I was curious on.

By lightly polishing your feed lips, you can remove the sharp edges of the feed lips, reducing the amount of scratched or deformed bbs going into your barrel. Instead of bbs being pushed by the nozzle, think of it as bbs will flow from the feed lips to your chamber, almost effortlessly, because the feed lips don't provide such a sharp resistance against the bb once you polish the feed lips-- therefore boosting feed and flight.
In terms of what to polish, I'm not the end all expert at this stuff, but when I bought my MP7 used, I noticed the feed lips were a little too small to effortlessly put bbs into stacking position. So I took some sandpaper-- you probably want to use very fine grit sandpaper, took the magazine apart, and just polished the feed lips. Around the circumference, and around the edges. Be sure to take your feed lips completely apart from the magazine, as you don't want paint or other debris getting into the bb follower and other places. When your done, soak it in some soapy water just to clean the feed lips, and let it dry. Reattach to your magazine and hopefully you will increase feeding, flight, accuracy, etc.

I'll always suggest trying different ammunition before you start modifying your gun. Some problems are easily fixed by just changing your bbs.
