I guess I like WA GBBs more because their stock package seems better than TMs. I prefer to get a "good" gun right off the bat instead of dealing with higher long term costs by getting something lower quality first and then spending a ton of money upgrading. That being said, I don't mind WE 1911 not compatible with TMs. I just want a good quality out of the box green-gas compatible GBB. Is the solid metal (and consequently, green gas safe) feel of WEs worth giving up WA magna blowback systems?
So far I am really just looking to collect and so am after realism a lot more than gaming practicality. I just plain don't like AEGs and their whiny sounds.
