Red face favorite n00b question...which is better?

Ok i would just like to say im new to the forums so take it easy on me , recently i just got into airsoft with some friends although we had crappy walmart/canadian tire guns we had a blast. Anyway now i want to look for a better gun something that (literally) wont fall apart in my hands.
Now i just want to say im not gonna buy a $400 gun because i know i wont be going airsofting that often so i want an average gun.
Here are the 3 that I found (i put inorder to which ill most likely buy)

1. (cybergun) Swiss Arms SIG 552 AEG -$230 (007 airsoft)

2. H&K MP7 AEP - $150 (Bass Pro shop)

3. GamerFace MP5 or M4 -$230 (Bass Pro Shop)

I am underage (17) but my mom will support my buy so im not trying to beat the system. The place me & my friends went to is only CQB and they allow max 320 Fps. Suggestions for which is best will help, or for different guns
Thank YOU!

All three of thos will fall apart in your hands within 1000 rnds if you get that far i suggest saving up for a half decent gun.
Example Jing Gong or something similar.

I am not familiar with airsoft.

What my question is, does the element of surprise work on a typical airsoft match?

'Tournaments' or not. You dont want to waste money on a gun that will just end up fucking up right off the bat. Its simply not worth the money.

Why put money down for trash when you can save it for something worthwhile.

Did you even get permission to use that logo at all?

the best of those three is the swiss arms SG552. It's just a transparent receiver on a JG SG552. They're alright but the transparent bodies are made out of cheese.

this site enforces a 18+ airsoft policy
by admitting your 17 and still going to purchase a airsoft gun with the help of your parents this is circumventing the Age verification system.

the SG552 is the least crappy gun, but the horror stories i've hear of working on the damn things is terrible. honestly wait a year, save up a bit more and you'll find something cheaper better on the classifieds, for sometimes not much more

now because i am who i am and its somewhat expected
Most everyone on this forum will tell you to get “Age verified” and buy from the classifieds.
You cannot import any guns from websites outside of Canada.
Airsoft is a 18+ sport
Sniping is not for newbies
If you are underage please do not try to circumvent the system in place, its there for a reason.
Nobody will help you get a gun if you are not age verified or underage
Do not play in your backyard/forest or anything of the like. Only play on official fields.
Please read the FAQ’s

Hello MassPwnage

If you would be so kind as to take sometime to review the websites rules that would be fantastic thank you.

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=53202


As it stands this community holds firm that airsoft should only be purchased, owned and used by those who are the legal age of majority, which is the age of 18.

If the facility you play at allows minors to play than that is perfectly fine. However on the note of your parent supporting your purchase from retailers, if they wish to sell to you on that circumstance than that is fine. As it stands though your parent or guardian cannot get age verified and purchase from this websites classifieds or any of this websites listed retailers using our verification system on your behalf.

I personally would not waste my hard earned money on any of your above listed choices as none of those items are the greatest when it comes to performance, quality of materials used or quality control. However its your money do with it as you wish.
