My last gas rifle cost less than my either of my last two AEGs...(not counting PTWs).
I rebuilt 2 complete gas rifles in about a 1 hour stretch...to tear down and get into two AEGs it would have been a lot more parts to fiddle with and a longer period of time.
I'm not "Must do gas rifle or die"....the last couple of games the AEGs and PTW's were pulled out....and one of those electrics will always go as a backup if the GBBR is ever used as a primary.
