They're heavier, more durable, built better, etc. However, better guns are also more expensive. You get what you pay for. A CA M4 will cost around $600.
Before you purchase one you may want to go out to a game and check out some equipment. Airsofters have no issue showing off their stuff.
I just may do that.
The guy who sells the G and G's also sponsors games and invited me to go with him (in hopes that I buy one of his guns
I'll have to watch some games and see some stuff.
I dont think I want to spend 600+ on an AEG just starting off, so I think I may just stick with the lower end one first and work my way up if I get serious.
Thanks for the help Kalnaren.
