The weak point on both CA and G&G m14s is the stock though, they have issues cracking at the grip or at the magwell. They need to be reinforced and filled with epoxy inside to help keep it from breaking. The rest of the gun when it's together feels really solid.
G&G does not have trades.
I've also never seen a G&G or CA with a cracked stock. I've seen someone drop theirs and it was fine.
