What is the advantage of Full Metal?

I'm looking at getting a new AEG and am leaning towards a full metal version. However, I want your opinions on why a full metal AEG is better than one with a nylon/plastic lower reciever.

Ive had enough falls and bashes in the heat of a fight for me to praise the lord that I have a metal body, It's worth it. It makes the guns more durable and you feel just rutheless, if you can get a gun thats all metal do it, it is worth it.

Durability and longevity for the most part. Especially if your playing in some place cold. Cold plastic is not your friend.

Doesn't it help with barrel wobble in Armalites?

Indeed it does.

A good quality metal receiver and front end with a one piece outer barrel unit should eliminate all wobble.

If your buying SRC cansoft from KEN im telling you now DONT.... buy full metal ones the SRC cansoft sucks nuts so bad that it keeps breaking externally. Full metal guns are way cooler than plastic looking one, yes its more expensive than cansoft but I agree with pusangani its way cooler

This. And awesome, more durable, more realistic.
You don't really need any more reasons.

Compare metal receivers to boobs. It's a lot more fun to touch, look at, and play with boobs that stay in place.

I agree that full metal is cooler and more durable. However, hasn't the barrel wobble issue been addressed by better design (i.e. Classic Army with their one piece barrel)?

Yes, cool factor levels :
Nylon gun : -->

Full metal "BADA$$S" gun : ----------------->

Seriously, the full metal guns are way more durable, I mean the receivers
You don't wanna bring your brand new gun into battle and then drop it and break it, nylon is not that solid !!!

And the weight adds a certain weight to it to make it feel more realistic, while plastic tends to make it feel like a toy
