@death, I tried, but failed hard with a WE GBB. AEG's just don't do it for me.
As for TM vs CA, The CA seems the way to go, but back when I was looking, a bonestock M24 was ~800, and I've seen TM's go for far less that that.
The Triggers on the TM's seem to be a pain, but after (assuming install and tuning go well) they can be great.
I'm still curious about the maruzen L96's. although with enough time and money. I'm sure I could make a wood L96 stock for a CA/TM.
I still want to feel them ingame ;D
Thanks for the replies.
