Can't decide

Hi everyone I'm new to airsoft and looking to buy hardware but I'm stuck between two choices although similar there is a few things different. I'm just wondering if there anything I should consider over the other.

G&G M4 CQB-R
https://www.buyairsoft.ca/gandg-m4-cqb-r.html

G&G M416-S
https://www.buyairsoft.ca/gandg-m416-s.html

thanks.

They're pretty much the same. Your choice entirely.

Better yet: you could always skip that shit and get age verified. Better selection from the classifieds and private retailers here.

Alrighty then, before the giant response of obvious replies.

Fill in your location. If youre in Canada or the USA, there are far better choices available to you, Unfortunately, I am forbidden to tell you where and how to obtain the guns.

Personally, I would choose the M416-S, as it seems suited for both CQB and field, since it has a longer overall length, a continuous top rail which is better for optics, and that's just my preference

Essentially, they're the exact same thing, with some minor differences, such as the size, rails, the top rail being elongated on the M416-s, etc.

Either or. They're both decent choices, not the greatest, but they're not bottom of the barrel either.

I would personally take the 416-S, it's just more of my liking.

NB: They're basically both the same internals it's just the external furniture that's different. It's your preference.

As Strelok said, I suggest you to be Age Verified, you will have better deal in the Classifieds and Retailers section

But between those 2 guns, I prefer the M4 CQB-R

I loved every G&P gun I owned but that is just too expensive for what it is. You'll pay quite a premium outside of the classifieds for guns like these.

Best advice? Go to a game before you buy a gun. Not only will you be able to get age verified, but you'll be able to see, and if you ask nicely hold and try, most of the guns.

Classifieds had a way better selection, often way better prices.

add cost of battery and charger on top of that.

The gun is too high in fps for fields, I think the limit is 400 fps, so you will need to factor in replacement parts to slow it down.

You're easily going to add another 100-150$ to that price tag to be able to game the gun.

You could look at CA.. I'd take their guns over G&G any day.
