Well the kid who buys the gun has nothing to worry about. The people he's playing with, however...they'll feel it.
[edit, I have more to say.]
The thing about these blowbacks shooting hot from the box that really bugs me is how simple it is to fix. They manufacturer doesn't really need to crank the velocity to the limit. They have the easy option of placing weaker springs in the gun at the manufacturing stage. No, they won't have incredible consistency with a simple spring weight selection, but if they find a combination that produces AROUND 280 or 270 fps, instead of around 330-380, the RVA can compensate up when it is received. The way things are, there is just no way for a kid to ready his gun for a field on his own.
