*I think* The Sig552 is CYMA and the M16 is JG. It's really personal choice.

get a m4, high quality ammo (.28 bbbastards), and a tightbore barrel, and you'll be good to go...

BTW: that m16 is a JG too,
BBTW: stay away from that sig552, the lower body is crap, and the grip area is prone to crack and eventually could break, and also, the barrel is uber short, and the mags arent really common to find....

Longer barrel length really doesn't matter at this level, especially in CQB. In CQB you want a high rate of fire. Airsoft isn't COD, maneuverability matters.

Google tells me you are right about the Sig552.
Velocity Arms isn't a brand, it rebrands (mostly) JG after putting a clear lower on them.

If you can "play", it should mean you're 18 right?

If so, get AV'd, and check the classifieds. There's a pimped Sig552 in there right now.

You won't regret it.

Precision and accuracy in a CQB environment...

I'd think that you'd want to be more maneuverable first.

Anyways, .25's are fine for CBQ, hell it's probably better to run .20's on a 1J spring.

OP: Keep in mind you'll need your rifle to shoot at 350 or below for CQB arenas (330 FPS recommended).

You're an 'airsoftpro' right? So you should know the answer before even asking.
