G&G rec is almost twice the price of a kracken, yes, but! heres why its worth it.
It comes with a pretty decent battery and a charger with an auto shut off feature. Kracken comes with a shit battery and a terrible charger (+/- 100 bucks to replace them with a decent battery and charger)
G&G internals and externals are much higher quality then JG, and much, much, much better then internals of Aftermath. The only issue i have found with G&G internals is the compression parts, they are not the best.
The halfbreed G&G acctually look pretty good, with a mag in from a distance, you can't even tell they aren't full black.
Just IMO, G&G is a much better buy then a aftermath or a JG, even if its just a G&G rec
It's better to light a candle, than to curse the darkness
