i did my own homework and research both platform, read countless reviews on different forums, watch videos and videos on youtube and at that time since TM is so famous (even today) its the only one i can actually test first before getting one. after 6 months of all this dabate i finally made my decision. i chose G&G over TM, price is out of the question.
i took my m14 to many games already and campared this to fully upgraded TM side by side and there are some of the things i've compared. G&G M14(upgraded with infinite torque up gears) vs TM M14 (multiple/fully upgraded according to the owner).
"to all who read, this is just my personal view and experience with both platforms"
accuracy = about the same to no difference
range = about the same to no difference
durability = G&G gearbox is reinforced but gears is a piece of shit(not the max version)
upgradability = TM hands down
wieght = G&G is slightly heavier
feel = TM feels more plasticky
available parts for accessories and upgrades = TM ftw.
btw, i never had any regret with the platform i choose. i would suggest you do a little bit of homework and find it out yourself which one you think is best for you.
good post. do your own homework before you make a buy. I agree the G&G max m14 does not leave much room for upgrades. I like that. I cant say anything about TM but I wonder if TM is still holding on to things in the past. Kind of like for a while the only computer to buy, this is going way back, was an IBM. Dont buy a clone people would say.
in regards to the KA comment earlier it was an M4 not M14
