For some odd reason I like the idea of maintaining a GBBR. It may be a lot of work, but that hard work pays off. Plus you can be proud of your gun, considering you have to truly tale care of it.

And lets not forget, having a GBBR instantly makes you more badass.

unless you have a KJW m4, the nooblord has had one for months and its still running, this tells me that they are nearly indestructible

i fricking LOVE my GBBR i would not give it up for anything. there is nothing better at an indoor game than fracken loud GBBR!

haha yes, a gun that literally runs off a rubber band was made for guys like him

I love my GBBR's too, but somedays I just look at them and go "ugh, I don't wanna pre-check and post maintain you today..." and I just grab my aeg and head out the door

one thing that drives me NUTS about my KJW though, is I have to readjust the hopup incredibly often, day to day even, or even skrim to skrim, its not that it unadjusts, it just seems to hop differently every time I pick it up

Well for us machinists who have easy access to A2, O1, 4140 and 8620 steels and 440C stainless, screw everyone else, cause we can make our own most literally indestructible internals!
Can't wait to build my own

point taken. Our games are usually about 2 hours long at the most. Our spawns usually have areas to toss gear aswell. I guess it depends on what and were you play. At this last wheltfest I had to reload 4 mags after a 30 minute push how ever it was easy enough to do on the field.

just consider a side arm if your low loading out like that. And use the hicapwarriors cover fire to your advantage.

temperature is the killer...otherwise there's actually less worry/maintenance with a GBBR vs. AEG. As long as you..1) understand what's supposed to work....2) can apply lube (heh heh)....you're good to go.

The first point is where the uninitated fail.

Same with AEGs...with a working, reliable one...it's pretty noobie friendly. Add battery+bbs and go. Clean out the barrel now and then.

However...look too hard at it and start fiddling with things and you're in for some long nights and start down a slippery slope of needing 2-5 guns since your guns are always half disassembled 'cause you're in the middle of tweaking things.

When GBBRs act up and go wonky....it's either a dead simple fix...or a long drawn out headscratcher.

I've shot a GBBR for the past while....to the point where I couldn't remember where I had put my AEG (literally couldn't find it) and my PTW hasn't been touched much at all. The GBBR is just too much fun not to use.

But...for this Sunday's game it's supposed to be a high around 16C...so the battery guns are coming out. If I had a bunch of CO2 mags I wouldn't sweat it....but I don't.

We do plenty of indoor shooting here in TO as well....so every chance I get at that...the GBBR is coming out. The noise and action just puts AEGs to shame.

The PTW is solid and reliable (I've gamed it several times in the rain.....so suck balls to those who say they can't get wet)....and it's preferable to an AEG. When I started into the PTW's I bought two....one as a backup, just in case one quit. Never got used....so I sold it. I've got spare electronics and a motor for it....again, just in case...and it's dead simple to swap parts on them. About a tenth of the time it takes to work on an AEG.

With regards to how many mags or how many BBs in a mag....doesn't matter. Go with what works for you in the game you're in. Real capping in a shoot 'em fun skirmish where half the guys are running multiple hicaps might not be the best way to have fun...or it might pucker you right up and boost the fun meter through the roof. I prefer ammo capped, ammo limited, high FPS all day, no breaks mil-sims....just do but I wouldn't think that they're for everyone. I also enjoy a quick skirmish shoot 'em up too....that's this Sunday's fun game. The only time I've not seen things work out is where there's wildly different expectation levels from the players...and that's for the host to set out from the get go.

The bottom line is...you should be in this for fun. If you're not posting a shit eating grin that makes your face hurt after a solid game with good shooters.....then you're doing it wrong.

Kraken, PTW, GBBR, pistol, rubber knife, uber l33t or RedGreen special.........doesn't matter. It's the nut behind the butt that makes or breaks it.

*edit*
and making your own parts is just plain fun...and way easier to do for a GBBR vs. AEG

I remember when I started playing paintball many years ago the guns were uzis and they didnt run on gas. They used powdered cartridges like real bullets, now that was loud. Too bad that would never ever be allowed in Canada.

Same here man. The way I see it is a GBBR is much better for that and all the other reasons Brian gave.

A GBBR is simply more realistic, not just in recoil (because afaik it doesn't kick much) but the cost, maintenance and necessity to watch your ammo. And airsoft, as opposed to paintball, is about realism.

That being said, I'm still looking for my FIRST gun and that will most likely be an AEG. For nubs like us AEGs are easier to start with. They are cheaper when you take into account running costs and mags, they are more reliable (I think) and possibly easier to fix if things go wrong (more spare parts, more experience all around with AEGs). And when it comes time to get a GBBR, I think you should be able to flip an AEG for a decent sum of money if you take care of it.

Anyways, things are different with you since you already have the gun. And I could be totally off base, this is just what I've picked up from lurking

AEG's are more reliable, cheaper to fix, but not necessarily easier. Also a bit cheaper to operate since your only consumable is ammo.
It's stupid easy to swap out the bolt assembly on the GBBRs, not so easy to swap out a cylinder set on an AEG lol
But AEG's are definitely the best thing to start with!
