You actually save money since you use less BBs, I'm running a VFC G36 gbb and have 10 mags, 300 rounds is my max capacity. Make your shots count since you don't have many and your rifle is much louder than your standard AEG. Had someone say my gun was too loud when we were in a bunker at Finchs.

I started out with a GBB but don't get me wrong, it's been almost a year and I have 1x GBBR, 2x GBBPs, 4x AEGs and 2x springer/bolt =D

My GBBR is my primary but I don't use it for indoors since it'd be a bitch to have to reload after other game.

If you guys never face a Daytonagun used in suppressed role, it'll scare you.

One thing to note, since switching over to gas, I've had to upgrade my tool set, as what I had was woefully inadequate. I find that working on my gas weapons is much more satisfying. While the internals on my AEG's are a complete mystery to me, I quickly learned that I can dissassemble my GBBR's with complete confidence. Its hard to mess things up when you're putting a gas gun back together. And as many here have stated, the realsitic operation and firing, for me, is totally worth it. It requires a much different strategy, where victory can't be acheived through overwhelming firepower. I find it can make you a better player in general.

I agree with what Drake said. When I came back into airsoft about a year ago, I didn't know GBBRs and never heard about them. When Drake explained to me what they were and how they operated I had an instant boner since I managed to shoot the real thing in the CF. That instantly gave my airsoft experience a second breathe as well since I was using AEGs forever back then in 2003-2004.

Being a guy who regularly cleaned his rifle to be QM-Clean-As-Fuck, I enjoy how you can take apart everything and clean it up after a game while taking a cood brew. And since i'm not a trigger happy kind of player, the realism that brings the GBBR is perfect for me.

I know this maybe something on sidenote, but if you were to invest in a GBBR platform which would it be?

Cleaning the internals is always a joy it's the frustration from a fragile and lack of reliable mags that turn me off GBBR, I was so hard boned on firing my GBBR I forgot that I was using airsoft for a moment and did a Costa style mag eject and phfhhhssst 1 expensive Prowin mag gone

WE Open bolt by far the most reliable one for me, parts are cheap and readilly available and if you fuck up a mag doing a Chris Costa impression it woont break the bank

Definitely a WE PDW. My buddy had one, and it was a great little gun.

What I learned here is I can now go with a GBBR as a first weapon ever in airsoft. Not that I'll automatically go with GBBR but now thinking about it. Thanks to this thread.

Always wonder why everyone say go with an AEG and then improve and gradually go to Gas. From my point of view, both are completely different and both have simple and complex parts. Taking experience from AEG and then going to gas. WHY? It's a new beginning.

I have a +10 years experience with production, R&D, custom projects in electronics and I play soldering iron like Jimi Hendrix plays guitar (I mean, I'm left handed). Some of my solders still in use at NASA, USAF an CF. So for wiring, connections, mosfets, no problems.
I have a 5-6 years of RC car racing in clubs and competitions so for me brushed motors are thing of the past but I played with everything inside them. Modifications to timing, windings, placement of magnet inside...Break-in of the brushes in water/alcool/etc...
Went brushless a while ago.
I know more than 95% of people about battery chemistry, charging/discharging/storing and using them of course so an AEG was the natural way to go fo me since I know a lot about some parts, shimmings, fittings, playing with small gears etc...

I can't buy an AEG and not opening it the same day to see whats inside and cleaning, lubing, shimming and improving the insides the following days and I'll probably succeed because before to do so, I'll take the time to find tutorials, exploded diagrams and find as many infos as I can and I'll use quality tools to not strip every screws. I'm not a kid that want to shoot with the highest FPS possible withour considering the impact on all other parts involve with a spring swap. I'll do about the same with an GBBR or GBBP.

I found here pretty much all the pro's about GBBR/P in a very short thread. Thanks to all the contributors.

What I retain the most is: bang! Bang! instead of mrrrrzip! mrrrrzip! and thats what is more tempting for me to buy.

Both have equal pros and cons and can take advantage of specific situations but in the end it is a matter of personnal preferences and personnals skills for the maintenance and fixes. The ''go with an AEG for a first weapon'' really takes is place after asking few questions about the person and what kind of game he wants to play and what he likes and after couples of key questions he will answer by himself to the question.

So, I'll go with both! an AEG and GBB. Looks to be the best of both world

Thanks
