What is R.O.F (rate of fire)?

ROF is rate of fire, or how many BB's you shoot a second. A high rate of fire sounds good, but the higher the ROF, the quicker you will use your ammo.

The question widely asked of us is "How do I increase the rate of fire?", even on guns that are already putting BBs out in a solid stream - go figure...
Well this can be done easily with the change to a higher voltage battery or with a more technical approach, which can range from a less powerful spring -which reduces your F.P.S.- to the more elaborate use of the prototype sector gear that gives two piston strokes per revolution.Throw into this mix a high speed motor and what is the result? "Aha" you say "mind boggling BB carnage"---Wrong
Thrown together speed increasing set ups have a wonderful tendency to be rather short lived affairs, just like in nature if it moves quickly chances are it doesn't live long. Properly researched and engineered Grin-factor Twelve gearboxes do exist and are a thing of beauty but they are just that; PROPERLY ENGINEERED. Sometimes you have to just be satisfied with what you have as a R.O.F. and realise that if you cant hit your target with 2/3 BB's, then emptying 300 rounds ten feet short of target (although fun!), just wastes your ammo.
