If you're going to change springs a lot, pick an ICS. The split mechbox means a spring change takes one screwdriver and 5 minutes. With a standard V2 mechbox (as found in the G&G) you have to completely remove and disassemble the ENTIRE mechbox every single time. That also requires removal of the grip, motor, mag catch and stock/buffer tube every time. Even if you don't change springs a lot, most of the things prone to failure in a V2 are in the top half (piston, tappet plate, mechbox itself). Properly shimmed and maintained gears rarely fail and that's all the bottom half really is (plus switch assembly).
