Since this will be your first gun you may want the G&G over the CA. CA is externally much better, but internally the G&G meets my minimum requisite quality internally to leave the gun stock. The CA does not, but in my opinion is a better base if you are planning on changing out the internals anyway, as the externals look better and it is made of steel instead of the weaker metal and brighter paint G&G uses.
