You may want to look at your airseal. It is most likely to cause a loss in FPS. One way to tell if it is the GB or the airseal is to put the shooter into semi and fire it into a chrono. If the FPS from shot to shot varies more than +_ 5 fps you have an airseal problem. If they are dead on maybe a new spring would be needed.
To stay under 350 an M100 or m110 if your gun is leaking. 400fps an M110 or a leakey M120 but the 120 is probably going to go over 400 and if your battery and GB are not up to it you could create some problems for yourself.

There is a litany of things to do a mile long. You need to research and practice. For now maybe getting the m110 in there and closing it up is enough of a start.
Look up topics like AOE, Premature Engagement or PE, greasing, shimming (maybe you have no shims with the KWA self shimming gears my spur had one 0.10mm shim on the bottom or large gear side of the spur or middle gear], put a new o-ring on the piston if it is worn, clean out debris if any.
Sometimes it is better to have an extra hand(s) while closing it up and if you can get it partially closed and put a few screws in to keep it from coming apart but not so much that it is closed you can wiggle or push/pull with a hook tool, the trigger and or ARL and gears into place until it snaps shut. Then tighten the screws. Dont use the screws to close the box, just to hold it until everything lines up and it snaps together. What a satisfying sound. Now check the trigger and make sure it is not binding and the spring returns it. Dont forget the holder on the outside back of the box before screwing her shut. Use a screwdriver through the spring guide and piston to hold them down till you get the cover on. I suppose you found a 9mm torx for the screws.
Best bet with a KWA is don't touch anything unless it breaks and if it does get a factory replacement part otherwise you may have to start replacing other parts as well.
I can not tell you the respect I have for people who can put a GB together alone with their fingers as their main tool. I built this to hold things together while it get it ready to snap shut. Old speaker magnet keeps the gears and ARL true. Clamps keep the cylinder and main spring from popping out, little brades and do dads hold the trigger and tappet. Indespensible for me..

If you got it together without a jig or another set of helping hands I salute you!!!!!!!!!!!

When I bought the G36C I also bought a G&G UMG for my son (both used) I also replace the spring with a M120 but that change out only increase the fps from 290 to 335. Do you know if I would hurt anything in the gb if I went to a M130 spring? I also noticed the compression wasn't as strong as the G36C when I had my finger over the air nozzle while pushing on the piston.
