How happy is Sledge going to be that polls are working?

What is it with this obsession with power?
In particular, why are so many people messsing their boxers over this, admittedly quite nice sounding, Chinese L96 replica?
For some, sure, it's the fact it's an L96 replica (sort of), but many are saying "Cor, it does 540 fps for sure", "No, no, it's 560!", "I heard it was 750 with .12gs!".
OK in some places in the States, you're duty bound by the Constitution to hurt your fellow airsofter ("I'm gonna make you squeal like a pig. Weeeeeeee.
" - No, wait, that's something else, isn't it...? ), but here in the UK, you CANNOT shoot at someone with anything more powerful than 1J without (at least potentially) incurring the wrath of the law.
As this thing is now teetering up towards VSR-10 prices, once you factor in shipping from HK and VAT/Duty and PF charges, will it really be that good?
For me, this all sounds like a game of "Airsoft Sniper Rifle" Top Trumps, where the person who shouts the silliest FPS figure wins!
I'd be interested in seeing one (I've always rather liked Bolt Actions and the L96 in particular), but I won't be buying one unless they can figure out a way to get the power down to around 350fps, where it can be used in the UK.
If I want an air-rifle, I'll buy a proper one!
