G&G guns traditionally have always shot 350ish FPS, have been quite accurate (newer ones are advertised with 6.04mm barrels).

According to The Warstore, plastic hopups are typical of all G&G M4/16s. I had one in my G&G M16A3, not that it was ever anything but reliable (once the sleeve was replaced). It is my understanding that all "high end" full metal G&G ARs are simply dressed up versions of their full metal vanilla ARs, and their higher price reflect external differences, not internal differences.

I've only seen one clear receiver G&G thus far, so I don't really have a lot of experience with them. However, from what I can tell, it had bearing bushings just like my full metal G&G. Kinda ironic how being transparent was helpful, at least on that occasion. Anyways, if G&G wanted to cut costs, I would've expected those to be the first thing to go.

Is 007's $400 G&G exactly the same as a $400 U.S. G&G but with a different receiver? Do you honestly believe that? Why not get Ken to elaborate about that here once and for all? I'm sure there are going to be other differences.
I don't think it's out of the question. A detail internal comparison would resolve the issue, if Ken or CAS is not inclined to field such a question. However, until said examination or answer are provided, I don't think it's unreasonable to hold either position.
